On the other hand if Warner includes even half of the superlative special features of the Icon then the disc should be of special interest to Hammer fans.
The only bonus feature on the WB release is the Trailer. Warner Archive gets no budget for bonus content, so I would assume that would include the cost of licensing bonus content that were included on releases from other companies.

Thanks for the DRACULA update captveg. Don't have any Archive blues from the deep supplements era. Am I to understand that none will be forthcoming unless they were produced by WHV "back in the day"?

That's been the case, yes. I believe the only exception so far for a catalog BD was the commentary for Michael Collins, but that was likely on the shelf from a canceled SE DVD release and not newly created for Warner Archive.

Re The Thing (Hawks). I was all hunkered in for a long wait - the notice of the delay on Amazon had that don't call us, we'll call you, and don't hold your breath feel to it. But I received a notice that Amazon had been given a release date - and it's this coming Tuesday, the 27th.

Indeed, it has a product page Here ... I can't wait to see some reviews, although I'm sure I'll pick it up no matter what.

Top writers, scientists and leaders converge annually on Stockholm to take part in the awarding of the prestigious Nobel Prizes. This year, however, some honorees will find the great event eclipsed by a greater challenge: staying alive. Paul Newman is up to his famed baby blues in danger and intrigue as Andrew Craig, a hard-drinking author and Nobel winner for literature. At first dismissive of the award and only interested in the cash it brings, Craig finds his writerly instincts and wit sharpened when he senses the physics prize winner (Edward G. Robinson) is an impostor. He sets out to expose the hoax, free-falling into a Cold War ploy of secrets, pursuits, subterfuge and assassins adapted for the screen (from Irving Wallace’s best seller) with spice and wit by Ernest Lehman (North by Northwest, Sweet Smell of Success).

As in his classic The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms, director Eugene Lourie plunges us into a thrilling stomping ground, unleashing another Thunder Lizard to stomp on everything in sight. Alarming levels of radiation have infused the water, plants, and skies, and a radiated paleosaurus rises from the ocean depths. In its path: London. In its arsenal: a strength to topple buildings (King Kong’s Willis O’Brien contributes rampaging stop-motion effects), a stride that flattens cars, a flesh-searing radioactive ray and a ticked-off attitude. Left in ruins on land, humankind takes the fight to the beast’s undersea realm, where a two-man submarine crew must ensure the torpedo they fire is dead-on. The first chance is all anyone gets with The Giant Behemoth.
