Awesome, day one buy for me.
Hopefully it'll have all the extras from the digipak release as well.

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!
Well, I think Stalker has to be an actual quality release first... there's already one blu-ray of Stalker, but it's just totally crap-quality.

I would be stunned to see this go unreleased on Blu-ray in the States. The question is if this film, along with The Third Man and other flagship Studiocanal properties that were recently remastered, was able to be re-acquired by Criterion. Surely, an offer was made by Criterion, and probably for both of the aforementioned, as well as a number of other titles...but did Studiocanal accept, or did a new player somehow make an offer?

One hesitates to believe Studiocanal left the US market for themselves, but then, the new BD of The Third Man is region free...

Is the deal between Studio Canal and Lionsgate US still on? From what I understood, LG had licensed blanket access to the entire SC catalog in the US (which Criterion may not have been interested in and thus lost the rights to). They released a few notable films on BD but then dropped out (poor sales or whatever). They do have a major business relationship at least for theatrical releases, with a partnership where SC is handling the release of, among other titles, The Hunger Games franchise in Europe.

Maybe what SC feels is that with a region free (hopefully, for the locked folks) UK release, they'll make money even if it's not released by the US licensee.

The Lionsgate/StudioCanal deal is still ongoing. Lionsgate is the worst, they have pretty much stopped releasing Blu-rays of StudioCanal's classic catalog titles (I think That Obscure Object of Desire, released three years ago, was the last one they released) and many of them are now only available as Amazon exclusive MOD DVD-Rs.

I've yet to see Ran yet as I heard the current version looks terrible, so I'm glad to have waited and see it all in its remastered glory. Can't wait!

I bought a copy, but soon heard it wasn't a great transfer so put off watching it. I sold my copy recently having never watched it, so will be going into this fresh. Looking forward to it! I hope they go all-out with extras and packaging for this one...

I bought the UK DVD many years ago and it has sat on my shelf unwrapped - I'd forgotten why until I looked: English audio only !

There's a good doc on the disk though, worth keeping it for (Chris Marker's AK - The Making of Ran).

I have the StudioCanal x Optimum release, I actually watched it and the film for the first time a few weeks ago. What is supposed to be so bad about this version?

This is the Studio Canal version here - however, I've been misled all these years! The case clearly states English audio and no subs, but I finally unwrapped it and put it in and it is Japanese DD 2.0, with forced English subs

PQ is pretty terrible too...

Knew there was a reason I bought it originally! Let's hope they keep this as an extra...I'm a very big fan of Marker.

I hope so too. I've never seen either the film, or the documentary. In a few weeks, both restorations will be screened, so I have my chance.

French artwork. UK should be the same (but in English). Looks awesome. Hoping for an LE just like The Third Man received.

I think the colors are wrong or edge enhancement. On my TV it looked good when I saw it. Of course this new edition will be much better. Still the BD looked better than the Criterion DVD.
