Relations between Criterion and Disney must be good, because The Grand Budapest Hotel is coming out in February. Hoping for Leave Her to Heaven, Broadcast News, Young Mr. Lincoln and so on in the near future (more likely we'll get Fantastic Mr. Fox and The Darjeeling Limited).

And the other two titles are The Ascent (woo!) and Charade (third UK BD for this...but still a good film!).

Charade, again ! I guess it's a cash cow but don't Criterion have anything less multiple-times-exploited already to release ?

I'll probably get Charade in some sale eventually, but am very pleased to see The Ascent.

Now, you know if history has shown us anything it is that at least 1 out of every 5 Criterion UK titles are a "That one? Really?" type of release.

True enough. At least, they have the UK rights for this one and they won't have to cut it go release it !

According to this post at the Blu-ray.com forum, Criterion said that they will be releasing Kagemusha in the UK. If it pans out, then Fox titles are happening, and, more importantly, as this seems to be a recent development, it might mean that the Fox freeze after the Disney takeover is thawing.

Someone on Bluray.com said that the Jarmusch Soda titles are OOP. 1) Is this recent news? 2) Does this include his most recent films?

A Soda rep actually posted on here before, and I think it was about a Jarmusch title - don't know if they still frequent this forum (or if they're still employed by Soda), but if we can find the post, we could try messaging them.

EDIT: It's actually JamesF (who I guess may be a freelancer since he posts on Arrow releases as well).

A poster on the Blu-ray.com forum messaged Criterion about the region code of the WKW set and were told that it will be A, but that they are releasing a region B version in the UK in April.

Also worth mentioning: Kagemusha is also on the way apparently ('early 2021'). So there are more Fox titles coming to the UK, which is good news.
