Yeah price for content it doesnt really seem that bad of a deal considering the individual BR's are going for £15 and it looks like the disks are housed in a good sized book

Got both the box and the steel on pre order from amazon, I'll definitely stick with the latter(considering the UHD isnt in the box?) but the former honestly it depends on whether I'm going to commit to watching all those docs.

So are they actually on the last wave of Blu-rays but not mentioned on the back, or the discs re-encoded for the boxset, or the extras only on bonus discs?
I'd be surprised if they re-encoded new discs just for the box set, and to add special features they could've included in the separate editions. I will never know why Curzon do things this way around - release single editions, and then a box set afterwards. It really doesn't make any sense! You're just going to piss off the same customers who'd be interested in these films in the first place!

Anyway, I reckon all the special features will be on the films/discs exclusive to the box set. There are 22 films and 22 discs, and some of these films aren't that long, meaning they could cram all the extras they like onto those discs (and reuse the discs they've already released separately - Alice in the Cities, Kings of the Road, The American Friend, Paris Texas, Wings of Desire, Buena Vista Social Club, Pina, The Salt of the Earth).

I wonder why they haven't planned to release the other discs either separately or as mini-sets, like they did for the Truffaut titles. I'd certainly be interested in, say, a mini box set of the documentary/docudrama stuff, and you could immediately pair Wings of Desire and Faraway, So Close!, and obviously the Road Trilogy (Alice in the Cities, Wrong Move, Kings of the Road). Guess they missed a trick there...once again.

I get the impression these have all been licensed directly from Wim Wenders Stiftung, as Axiom did before (still think they would've done better going the box set route, I doubt their editions sold particularly strongly...I bought most of them for £6-8 each in the end!), hence the off-the-shelf short films and extras and access to rare Wenders titles. Be interested to see the quality of the masters for some of them, as the ones not mentioned in the specs are probably not restored and may be similar to the Axiom DVD releases, just upscaled to HD.

I wonder if they'll release a cheaper set eventually with less elaborate packaging and no posters/booklet/polaroids. Either way I'm not paying more than £130-ish for it (I still haven't bought Criterion's WKW set, nor their Godzilla or Varda ones, as I'd realistically only pay about £100 maximum for those).

To be fair the WKW set came out a lot more per film, more than your standard Criterion disk were as this is a little more than £10 per film.

I wish they'd get the pre-orders sorted before announcing them... now I'm refreshing the pages... Amazon UK is saying it'll come out in 2027, obviously just random wrong info. And "temporarily out of stock".

Not all hope is lost - Curzon will release A24 film Funny Pages on 12th December. Not seen any news of a domestic Blu-ray yet.

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Funny-Pages...dp/B0BHX6PC9Q/

The Wenders boxset and Wings of Desire are now dated for 28th November.

A bit puzzled by some of your questions. Films aren't just licensed leaving the licensor free to determine in what manner they'll release them. Deals are negotiated according to pre-agreed usage terms. When you say you don't understand why AE don't do this or don't do that the answer is always the same. Money! They spend according to what they want out of it.

Really happy to see they’re doing a Blu-ray as I wanted to see it theatrically but of course it only had a limited run and wasn’t showing anywhere near me. Trailer sold me immediately so will happily blind-buy this at some point!

Had my problems with the film but I don't think I've seen a film this year that was more perfectly cast. Each character looks like a Crumb/Pekar sketch.

Unless it’s Wenders or Triangle of Sadness or Blind Ambition, Curzon titles never screen locally.

While it was already apparent from the Lionsgate logo appearing on the poster and at the start of the film (though there was also a Curzon logo when I went to the Vue preview), I guess we won’t be seeing a Curzon Blu-ray of Triangle of Sadness anytime soon - the rights have been sold to Lionsgate, six months after Curzon initially acquired the rights after Cannes.

https://www.screendaily.com/news/lio...176064.article

This isn’t unheard of either - this article references the StudioCanal deal for Parasite (though Curzon still released the disc, it’s on Curzon Home Cinema and Curzon also controlled the theatrical release of the black and white version after cinemas reopened), 45 Years involved Lionsgate in some form. Rights have shifted about before - Element Pictures Distribution joined with Picturehouse for the Irish release of Herself, a year after Picturehouse were going to release it just by themselves, and after the religious controversy of The Lady of Heaven sparked protests outside cinemas, Vertigo Releasing dropped the film entirely.

Happy to see Official Competition coming in December, as the Arthaus Blu-ray apparently doesn’t have the English subtitles Amazon promised.

Not much of a sale. £5 for a DVD and £8 for a Blu-ray was pretty much the regular pricing for AE titles in Fopp until recently. Still, it's a good excuse to fill a couple of gaps and the boxset deals seem to be alright (Bong Joon-Ho at £30).
