Forthcoming in 2025, after the series has finished its run.

Here's a hint that I don't think anybody here posted - Fran Simeoni tweeted last month that Arrow had two forthcoming releases with Willem Dafoe in them. One of which is presumably To Live and Die in LA, any ideas what the other could be?

I can confirm that it definitely isn't The Boondock Saints.

Wasn't he in Bigelow's first movie? Seems like the kind of thing Arrow would be into

Body of Evidence
? :lol:

Seriously now, I would hope for 4k remasters of
Born on the 4th of July
Platoon

But I don't think these are something that Arrow would release.

Let it be Schrader's Light Sleeper, please!

That would make me super happy! I love early Schrader and heard its great but there is no decent version of this film anywhere

The UK DVD release of Cronenberg's eXistenZ appears to be OOP. Rights dependent, I'm sure Arrow would jump at that

I was thinking it could be that - or maybe Affliction - but I'd like to think we'll see an Arrow edition of Shadow of the Vampire one day.

And I don't mind who releases it, but a restored version of Wenders' Faraway, So Close! would be excellent too.

Ok, am I the only one hoping for Walter Hill's Streets of Fire?

I'd love for the blue key to the puzzle to be the 4K Mulholland Drive, but that seems pretty decisively controlled by StudioCanal.

Possibly Duccio Tessari's giallo Puzzle.
Sadly, it's been mentioned in the Studio Canal thread that they plan on releasing Lynch's film.

Mulholland Drive is indeed permanently with StudioCanal as a by-product of them partly funding it in the first place.

You can't really argue with that!

Yes, The Loveless. Blue Underground released it on DVD a number of years ago (around the same time as Susan Seidelman's own debut feature Smithereens) but I don't think it has turned up in the UK so far.

The Blue Underground release of THE LOVELESS went out of print a few months ago.

It's a decent homoerotic movie.

The Bigelow seems like a good bet, given that we already know that The Crazies (another former Blue Underground title) is forthcoming.

And Light Sleeper got an acceptable DVD from Momentum in the UK some years ago, in proper anamorphic widescreen (though PAL) and with commentary by Schrader (full film) and Sarandon/Dafoe (select scene). Link here.

Whoops, that does make it seem quite a bit less likely then. In light of this, I truly have no idea what it will be, and I just noticed that Light Sleeper looks to be with Studiocanal in the UK right now. So I'll guess Go Go Tales will come out of whatever the hell limbo it is in, just for fun.

Has there been any recent UK release of Shadow of the Vampire?

Was last released by Metrodome, who folded a few months ago, so I'm hoping Arrow managed to get it - as they did with Donnie Darko, which they actually got quite a while before Metrodome went into administration.

Talking of Metrodome titles, I wonder if Arrow could get Black Christmas and essentially port the Shout Factory release over here (obviously adding a booklet too)?

There are several others I'd love to see get picked up for Blu-ray - especially Richard Linklater's Slacker, Andrew Dominik's Chopper, Wim Wenders' Until the End of the World, and Na Hong-jin's The Chaser. A few Refn titles up for grabs it seems, and Metrodome did once release Sam Fuller's Shock Corridor and The Naked Kiss, but I doubt they still had the rights to those two.

Maybe also a Blu-ray release of Lucile Hadzihalilovic's film Evolution. It was one of Metrodome's last releases, but they only managed to get it out on DVD. Perhaps pair it with Innocence, which was an old Tartan Video release!

Quick question: what is this THE BEYOND re-release all about? Is it a new scan? I wasn't... too happy with the old one. It was OK, I guess, but didn't hold up to the presentation that I saw watching it in a cinema a decade or so ago.
