Nope, there's no indication that they've begun a restoration yet

I finally got a reply from Cohen regarding the ultra-rare Jet Storm with Richard Attenborough. They confirm that they are going to release this film on BD but the date is uncertain - "sometime in 2015".

Quote:
Cohen Media Group has detailed the Blu-ray release of filmmaker Craig Lahiff's Swerve (2011), which stars Jason Clarke, David Lyons, Emma Booth and Travis McMahon. The modern noir thriller arrives on Blu-ray on March 18th.

Official Synopsis: While driving cross-country to a job interview, Colin (Lyons) witnesses a two-car crash that leaves one driver decapitated. The good-hearted Colin pulls a beautiful and mysterious young woman, Jina (Booth), from the wreckage, along with a suitcase full of money. But soon he becomes entangled with two men: a crooked local cop (Clarke) that happens to be Jina's very jealous husband and a murderous thug (McMahon) who's after the cash. The suspense and action build in this gripping thriller set in the breathtaking but unforgiving Australian outback.

The Blu-ray edition of Swerve is presented in 1080p with DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround. Bonus content includes:

The Inspector Lavardin Collection Blu-ray



NEWS
http://www.blu-ray.com/news/?id=13310

Quote:
The Cohen Media Group will bring to Blu-ray two classic thrillers directed by Claude Chabrol: Cop Au Vin a.k.a Chicken With Vinegar (1985), starring Jean Poiret, Stéphane Audran, Michel Bouquet, and Lucas Belvaux, and Inspector Lavardin (1986), starring Jean Poiret, Jean-Claude Brialy, and Bernadette Lafont. The two films, which will be part of The Inspector Lavardin Collection, will be available for purchase on April 22.

Chicken With Vinegar

Stéphane Audran plays a cruel, wheelchair-bound invalid who bullies her teenaged son Louis (Lucas Belvaux) into abject obedience. The pair is threatened by a conniving trio of "upright citizens" that want to buy her property as part of a deal for a lucrative development project. However, the two eccentrics, who are given to reading everyone's mail before it is delivered, won't sell. With townsfolk dropping off left and right in a series of gruesome murders, it requires the deceptively charming Inspector Lavardin (Jean Poiret) to get to the bottom of it all.

Inspector Lavardin

Jean Poiret returns as the remarkably urbane detective from Cop Au Vin. This time he arrives at a cozy, seaside village to investigate the bizarre murder of a eminent Catholic author. A "pillar" of society, the writer is found dead by the shore, the word 'pig' scrawled across his naked body with lipstick and a huge stab wound in his back. The usually cool sleuth is shaken when he discovers that the victim's window is none other than his old flame. Stylish and charming, with lighthearted jabs at bourgeois conventions, Inspecteur Lavardin is a first-rate thriller from master film-maker Claude Chabrol.

I like the two Chabrols I've seen enough to pick that set up.

Those Chabrols are definitely enjoyable, but his earlier work is much better. I'd love to see "Le Boucher", "Que la bête meure" or "La Rupture" on Blu-ray. But anyway, it's great to see more of his work coming out in high definition!

Cohen will be releasing a 35th Anniversary Edition of Ken Loach's Black Jack on April 8th. It won the Critics' Prize in Cannes back in 1979 and, more recently, Wes Anderson has named it as one of the main influences on Moonrise Kingdom.

The Cohen Media Blu-ray of D.W. Griffith's Intolerance is pretty amazing.

It admittedly took me quite a while to become engaged in the story, but I fell into the groove around the halfway point, and was glued to the screen during the final half. The set pieces, especially with the Babylon story, are astonishing in their scale.

I may not re-watch Intolerance as much as I revisit my James Bond movies, my Hitchcock movies, or my film noirs, but this Blu-ray is a beautiful edition to my collection, and I will be returning to it from time to time.


The Blu-ray of Intolerance includes a trailer for Prey. I had never given much thought to Prey here on this thread, but the trailer makes it look like a solid action film. I'll have to keep this one in mind when sales roll around.

I just started The Thief of Bagdad, and so far it's interesting. It has some cool effects for a movie that's 90 years old, I'm about 45 minutes in and I think it's about to pick up the pace and really start hitting the fantasy/adventure aspects hard, can't wait!

EDIT

Finished. Quite an enjoyable film. I felt like the ending was a little rushed and the movie seemed to spend more than half of it just setting the stage for the adventure portion, I would've liked to have had another 10-15 minutes to resolve the
[Show spoiler]city siege
but otherwise no other complaints.

Two Costa-Gavras Films Heading to Blu-ray


The Cohen Media Group has revealed that it plans to add to its Blu-ray catalog two films directed by acclaimed filmmaker Costa-Gavras: Amen. (2002), starring Ulrich Tukur, Mathieu Kassovitz, Ulrich Mühe, and Sebastian Koch, and Capital (2012), starring Gad Elmaleh, Gabriel Byrne, Liya Kebede, Hippolyte Girardot, and Natacha Régnier. The two releases are expected to arrive on the U.S. market on June 10th.

Amen.

When newly-commissioned SS Lieutenant Kurt Gerstein (Ulrich Tukur) witnesses the chemical disinfectant he's helped perfect being used to systematically murder interred Jews, he has no choice but to act. The only sympathetic ear Gerstein is able to find is that of a young Father Riccardo (Amelie's Mathieu Kassovitz), a priest with deep ties to the Vatican. While Riccardo takes on the obstructive Vatican hierarchy, Gerstein must walk a tightrope between documenting and enabling the atrocities his fellow SS officers cold-bloodedly commit. As the two unlikely allies fight to reveal the truth to the Church and the world, they discover that the fates of a man of conscience committing treason for the sake of humanity and a man of God committing heresy to thwart genocide are ultimately the same.

Costa-Gavras reveals the heroism and deceit surrounding the Vatican's response to the Holocaust with both suspenseful urgency and cool detachment, underscoring the disturbing gray areas of character that tolerated the Nazi atrocities that Gerstein and Riccardo beseech the Vatican to condemn. Without sanctimoniousness, the bitter ironies and hollow victories that are at the heart of Amen. incriminate the Nazis, the Church and ultimately humanity itself.

Capital

From legendary Academy Award-winning writer/director Costa-Gavras (Missing, Z) comes Capital, a fast-paced, darkly comic, suspenseful drama set in the high stakes world of global finance.

When the CEO of France's Phenix Bank collapses on the golf course, Machiavellian young executive Marc Tourneuil (Gad Elmaleh, Midnight in Paris) is crowned as his replacement. A whirlwind of ruthless ambition, power struggles, greed and deception ensues as Tourneuil's brutal ascent is jeopardized by a hostile takeover attempt from a large American hedge fund led by Dittmar Rigule (Gabriel Byrne, Vikings, In Treatment), erotic distractions from international supermodel Nassim (Liya Kebede), and adversaries with an agenda for destruction.

Capital is a pointed commentary on how the Darwinian world of contemporary capitalism plays itself out across the global financial stage. Based on the book Le Capital by Stéphane Osmont, the film is directed by Costa-Gavras and written by Costa-Gavras, Jean-Claude Grumberg and Karim Boukercha.
