Trailers from Film Movement for The Tiger of Eschnapur:

and The Indian Tomb:

I don't see anything mentioning these as new restorations, but assuming the website stills are accurate representations of the restorations and what will eventually be on disc, they don't appear to be the same masters as the German BDs:

Looks like there was a French release from Wild Side last year that also included the 1938 versions.

FM isn’t really going to release these separately, are they?

The br.com news post just says BD info will come later, not whether they'll be separate releases... but I certainly hope they won't be. They're separate admissions at the Film Forum screening, if that's indicative of anything...

And I swear br.com didn't say they were 4k restorations at first. But it was late—maybe I just missed it. Definitely didn't see it mentioned anywhere on the FM site's pages for them...

I was so proud of myself for not partaking of the Black Friday festivities, and then this happens.

Beaver on the Indian Epic
In the review, Gary asserts, but then questions, whether the Kalat commentaries are repeated:
Beaver wrote:The Film Movement Blu-ray offer the same (I think they are the same, although don't recall hearing some information regarding brown-face make-up and tigers in the wild) audio commentaries, for both Der Tiger von Eschnapur and Das indische Grabmal, by film scholar David Kalat and the 20-minute German documentary on the making of the Lang's Indian Epic.
Are the commentaries ported over from the Eureka MoC discs, or are they new? I loved the MoC commentaries, but it's not unheard of for Kalat to revisit his tracks. For example, Kalat recorded new versions of his commentaries for the MoC Mabuse Der Spieler (compared to Image release) and Testament (compared to Criterion). I'm wondering if (aside from the beautiful image upgrade) the only new extra feature is the Debra Paget, For Example video essay by Rappaport.
