This is awesome news. I'm very tempted to import - though I kind of wonder whether Criterion might have any plans to release a blu-ray here in the States.

I'm hoping this one gets announced for Criterion upgrade on Friday. It's one of my favorite movies.

Please help me acquire these Scream Factory slips (in OCD Mint condition):
Cockneys Vs. Zombies,
The Howling, Phantasm II, The Fog, Prince Of Darkness, The Sopranos Complete Collection

The feeling is pretty positive that this certainly will be announced by Criterion tomorrow. An intrepid forum user found a release date listed on DVD Aficionado.

The NYTimes 'announced' a September date for the Criterion release some time ago.

Looking at the cover on Amazon, looks like it's going to be a digipak slip.


btw one of the mods needs to change the release date in the thread title.

My guess this will be the same exact transfer as Criterion's since it basically has the same xtras, plus more. Here the extras on the upcoming Criterion release:

Children of Paradise (September 18th, 2012) —
New high-definition digital transfer from Pathé's 2011 restoration
Uncompressed monaural soundtrack
Audio commentaries by film scholars Brian Stonehill and Charles Affron
Video introduction by director Terry Gilliam
Once Upon a Time: Children of Paradise, a 2010 documentary on the making of the film
New visual essay on the design of Children of Paradise by film writer Paul Ryan
The Birth of Children of Paradise, a 1967 German documentary that visits Nice, where the film was partially shot, and features interviews with cast members Arletty, Jean-Louis Barrault, Pierre Brasseur; production designer Alexandre Trauner; and others
Restoration demonstration
U.S. trailer
New English subtitle translation
A booklet featuring an essay by film scholar Dudley Andrew and excerpts from a 1990 interview with director Marcel Carné
