Indeed great news for my 2nd favorite Kurosawa film (Seven Samurai is my first). Too bad Criterion lost the rights. I would have love to hear the Stephen Price commentary.

I'm not surprised by this announcement. In a few weeks, we're getting a 1 week run of the 4K restoration of the documentary A.K. THE MAKING OF KUROSAWA’S RAN. It wouldn't surprise me if the documentary restoration makes it on a Blu-ray release. Once that run is over, the very next day, we get a 1 week run of the RAN 4K restoration.

Glad to hear it'll be sooner than later - I sold my old Optimum disc a few weeks ago to make way for this! Hopefully StudioCanal decide to do a deluxe package for this one because I'm apprehensive about purchasing a 1-disc Amaray with only a few special features, even if it is fully restored.

Yes - ever since I heard about this a few months ago I'd planned on getting rid of mine. Someone bought it for a tenner on eBay a few weeks ago (about the same price I paid for it).

This may be the best year on record, for Blu Ray releases, in a very long time. We're finally getting A Brighter Summer Day on BD, Stalker is being released on BD, and now we can look forward to Ran on BD this year as well!

I have to decide on importing this or waiting to see if Criterion is going to release this.

Have Criterion ever re-released any of their OOP titles from Studio Canal?

Stalker alone would make it one of the best years for Blu-ray releases ever. The fact that I'm going to be able to own it in a box set with Tarkovsky's other films, even better!

Possibly only the Tati titles, but that was done on the insistence of the Tati estate.

Probably unlikely to ever happen; but on the other hand, if SC are not doing anything with the titles Stateside as far as BD releases go, you'd think simple economics would make them offer them to Criterion. A buck is a buck!

The rumour has it they got their hands back on the Handmade catalog. I believe it was out of them for some years.
Apart from that, I can't think of anything.
