While I'm skeptical too, films like Close-Up and The Traveler will also have new restorations so I don't see how else they would re-release them.
Wait, Close-Up is getting a new restoration?! I can't find anything a new restoration.

It was my understanding that 4K restorations were being done on all his Iranian films.

Edit: It's just a question of whether Criterion wants to release the 4K restoration of Close-Up, and the only way that would happen is if there was a retrospective boxset.

Why not? Unlike the Bergman that would be a day one buy for me. I can live without The Wind Will Carry Us, but having all his earlier work + Koker + everything else but Wind is a godsend for me. I hope they'll announce something next month as I am about to begin going through all his films soon.

The Wind Will Carry Us is his very best film of all. ;-)

I can see Cohen making a deal with Criterion, I don’t know why everyone’s assuming they won’t

It's always possible that's part of the delay too.

Does anyone know who owns the rights to Ten + 10 on Ten and Five? Ten was issued on DVD by Zeitgeist, but is no longer on their website, and its page on Kino Lorber's website no longer exists.

It's certainly plausible that a Kiarostami set is forthcoming this year---the last time they toured a significant portion of a director's oeuvre, it resulted in one, but I do not think it's been delayed. The Rosenbaum tweet from last year noncommittally refers to early next year, and the Koker Trilogy was of course teased in the New Year's clue for 2019, with the earliest it could be announced being in April. Criterion announced a retrospective of essentially his entire oeuvre on 01/25 to start on 08/02 in NYC. No other tour dates have yet to be announced. So, it seems like its arriving once the weather turns cold again, unless they want to release it during the middle of their tour for some reason.

They would be licensed from mk2 so it's possible they could end up with a potential Kiarostami retrospective set as well.

Kelly Reichardt's Old Joy is up on the Criterion Channel, opening with Criterion Collection and Janus logos. (Don't know if this was true when it was on Filmstruck, so sorry if this has already been noted.)

Oscilloscope has hinted on this forum before that Criterion could possibly have it, so this could be further confirmation

Nightmare Alley is currently on TCM's Noir Alley. It looks very good. I'm surprised to see that no one has put it out. Edmond Goulding has a phantom page. I wonder if this could be Criterion bound.

I'm bumping up this very early list from the Phantom Page Thread. I x the names that are now attached to films.... Still many names left. Being from early 2013 so don't think CC was listing names for the future Filmstruck. But you never know. Please make any corrections or additions I may have left off.

Wong Kar-wai on Screenwriting, Patience and His Next Feature, Blossoms

Jason Sanders wrote:All Wong [Kar-wai]’s films are slated to receive brand-new 4K restorations and will be re-released as part of a touring package sometime in 2020. Wong’s own studio, Jet Tone Films, is behind the restorations (Janus/Criterion will have US rights), and he’s been taking a few titles along in his appearances here in Hawaii, as well as in New York and France.

I think Harmony Korine and Johnnie To has phantom pages (though I believe that Johnnie To could have been for Filmstruck).

yoloswegmaster, they definitely have phantom pages but they came later on. The list was created from the first group of phantom pages that went up.

Don’t we already have a phantom page thread? Why are we doing that here now too?

Being that Criterion are no longer creating phantom pages I think that these left over director pages are just random speculation at this point.I just posted that list from over 6 years ago as a reference (geez, where has time gone).

Even though it might be with Kino, hopefully Criterion doesn’t fuck it up and put this in a boxset with other WCP films. This film is the epitome of needing a Massive Special Edition including the “Happy Ending”

I find it hard to imagine it would be released without the alternate ending. Even the 35mm print I saw a couple of years back had it tacked onto the end after some explanatory text.

If Criterion has this I can't imgine they would put it in WCP boxset. Buñuel is too big to not give this an independent release. Maybe someone can ask the KLInsider either here or on his Blu-ray.com thread.
