The latest Indicator newsletter contains the following tantalising tidbits:

As we look to the new year, it gives us great pleasure to confirm not only that there will be many more world premieres, but also that a great many of them will be brand new restorations.

In addition, 2020 will see us revealing details of a number of fresh licensing deals, and the launch of a new Powerhouse Films label, Anti-Worlds, dedicated to showcasing some of the most powerful, uncompromising, and brilliant new films from around the world.

There's another picture clue - which I can't currently access - which is apparently for the same film as the previous picture. It looks like a 60s Spy / SF film - my first thought was The Forbin Project (before it was announced as being the same film as the picture above) as I hadn't realised it was already out in the UK.

Somebody on blu-ray.com identifies this as Winter Kills (1979).

Should indicate that one of the new deals Indicator hyped up in the newsletter is with StudioCanal!

I hope they reissue The Reckoning with a new restoration one day. It’s an astonishing film, featuring one of the most compelling performances I’ve seen in a British film, and the current release might be a great package, but the master’s barely good enough for HD.

A poster at the Blu-Ray.com forum has got confirmation that Indicator have got a deal with StudioCanal and that deal seemingly includes Hammer titles.

Hammer Volume 5 and up are gonna make me sell off more Shout! Blu-rays, which is fine with me. And hopefully, one or two Warner Archive titles.

Don't Studio Canal own Masque of the Red Death?

A new restoration of The Masque of the Red Death premiered at the London Film Festival, so I would be surprised if Studio Canal don't release that one themselves.

Hopefully this deal means that Indicator get to have a crack at a Hitchcock box set. I'd also like to see Indicator treatment for J. Lee Thompson's The Woman in a Dressing Gown, Carol Reed's Outcast of the Islands and Midshipman Easy.

I'd like Crimes of the Heart (1986) but I don't see that happening. The Spanish Blu Ray has forced Spanish subtitles and the first chapter is out of sync but the picture quality is by far the best the film has ever looked.

Would also snap out The Woman in a Dressing Gown in a heartbeat - great film.

An ad in the new issue of Sight & Sound confirms Winter Kills, Night Tide, Resurrected, Orphans and The Pillow Book.

Hopefully the other Film4-owned Greenaway titles follow, particularly The Baby of Macon and Prospero's Books.

I thought Baby of Macon was 100% controlled by producer Kees Kasander. Regardless, it's ridiculous that it's been so neglected.
The screenplay was published, but the film never got distribution in North America.

It's listed as part of the Film4 library by their sales agent.

Oh boy The Baby of Macon? I cannot imagine how people in this day and age would react to it. It's a nasty little picture that needs to be more widely seen.

What's the middle film in the 2020 section? I cannot read the title.

I’m assuming Orphans is not the Pakula film?

"She ain't heavy...she's my mother"

Peter Mullan's first directed feature length film, about four siblings who separate early on and end up going on their own individual journeys of discovery in the night before their mother's funeral. Its darkly comic with a weirdly beautiful streak of magical religious Catholic realism. Its a really great (and very funny!) little film and deserves to be much better known than it is (I think it barely got screened on Film4 beyond once or twice a couple of decades ago)

Hopefully Indicator can port forward the extras from the old DownTown/MGM DVD edition. That has the trailer, a making of documentary, deleted scenes and audition tapes (both with commentary), two of Mullan's short films (Close and Good Day for the Bad Guys), an isolated score and a commentary with the all-time classic commentary opening "Welcome to the world of DVD, you sad anorak bastards...!"

This was also the film that caused Mullan to go on a tirade at Channel 4/Film4 as they apparently destroyed hours of behind the scenes material from the film without any consultation with him first. I wonder if there have been any developments since that point.

I’ve been tiptoeing for years on getting the Kino Classics Night Tide Blu-ray, and after reading Curtis Harrington’s bio and re-watching his early shorts a few months ago, it’s been on the back of my mind since. Looking forward to another beefy box set from Indicator.

I am thrilled that Night Tide is Region Free. When I saw it in the Sight & Sound ad, I was terrified it would be Region B locked. Is this from Sony or is this an indication that one of Indicator's new deals also allows for region free releases?

I am also excited that the bonus disc replicates all eight shorts from the long out of print Flicker Alley release (which has since been re-released as MOD, but a pressed disc from Indicator plus Night Tide is much preferable).

Believe it is from Nicolas Winding Refn, is it not? I know he did the 4K restoration so I would think he had some rights control over it.
