Ew I hope they don't. Ive only seen the 3 hour cut which is bad, and after seeing Diva which was just awful Im pretty done with Beineix.

Many of us were pretty done with Beineix in the late 80s, but I guess everyone gets a re-evaluation given enough time. Why can’t we have nice things like 4K restos of Patrice Chéreau’s Ceux qui m'aiment prendront le train and L’homme blessé?

Or if we must have Béatrice Dalle, give us Haneke’s Time of the Wolf or any of the 3 Claire Denis films she’s in.

I still can't believe that someone like Ebert (who I personally never cared for, but still) though Diva was such a great movie, as I found it ridiculously awful and full of plot holes. But please please some Claire Denis

TCM just ran what looked like a lovely restoration of LA STRADA, with a Janus logo. Hoping that's an indication of a future re-release on Criterion.

Beineix's just empty calories.

Janus hasn't announced anything in a while. Is this normal for them since it seemed like they were announcing a title a month?

Probably more will be announced once some of the current films finish their runs. I'm sure their Bergman retrospective is still eating up alot of time / resources - as quite a few theaters are playing Bergman films presently. That said, the following are newly touring / coming soon:

One Sings, the Other Doesn’t
L'atalante (4k restoration)
Detour (1945, Ulmer)
The Eyes of Orson Welles (2018, Cousins)

There's also this list of films that are making the rounds from Janus. I'd expect some of them to show up on the main Janus page. Not everything does though, as they probably don't plan to go through all the trouble as with their "main" national touring films - which requires a new poster, press kit, trailer, etc.

The Baker's Wife (1938, Pagnol)
Black Peter (Forman)
Crucified Lovers (1954, Mizoguchi)
La Fièvre Monte à El Pao (1959, Buñuel)
The Left-Handed Woman (1978, Handke)
More (1969, Schroeder)
I Mostri (1963, Risi) - Played at MOMA in 2016 with new restoration with credit to Janus
My Brilliant Career (1979, Armstrong)
La Vallée [Obscured by Clouds] (1972, Schroeder)
-----

I wouldn't be surprised if their next "big tour" after Bergman would be the Godzilla films.

The new restoration of Detour will start touring in the fall. So that page will probably get added in the near future.

Thanks so much for telling me! However, hasn't 'One Sings, The Other Doesn't' been touring for a while now? I remember seeing it on the homepage months ago.

Yes, I just saw that! Interesting to note that all of his films are getting a 4K restoration and that there is a new version of 'Zéro de conduite' with 5 more minutes of unseen footage.

Three more titles have been added to the site:

Marcel Pagnol's The Baker's Wife
Jackie Chan's Police Story and Police Story 2

Also Sisters is now included on the front page, so maybe there's some theatrical dates coming up soon.

Indeed. There's a screening in Portland at the end of October.

Yasujiro Ozu's The Flavor of Green Tea Over Rice is now appearing on the Janus Films site. Is this new?

I don't know if the film is new to the Janus Films' site, but Film Forum is showing a new 4K restoration of it starting December 14th.

Their new Repertory newsletter also includes dates for Detour (11/30), and The Baker's Wife (12/21), plus a one-week run of The Seventh Seal in early December.
