Arrow tweeted this.... Here.
In 2020 the Universal Monsters return! Born on this day in 1906 one of the original monsters Lon Chaney Jr.
Does this mean what I think it means?
I assume they are talking about Blumhouse's upcoming Invisible Man remake.

With also Late August, Early September being restored by Pathé for an April release in France, that's quite a hefty amount of newly restored Assayas movies (with his supervision).
Paris Awakens and A New Life have also already been restored, so I wouldn't be surprised to see another double bill come from Arrow later this year
Anyone know what happened to all the extras Arrow nixed from that release?

Curious what you think it means. The recent “Universal Classic Monsters: Complete 30-Film Collection” is a region-free Blu-ray release. I’d guess they are maybe looking at a release of the 2010 remake “The Wolfman” with Benicio del Toro, if anything.
IIRC, there was recently some rumors that Universal would be releasing a follow up in their Dark Universe reboot despite The Mummy’s BO flop, and that it would be released in 2020.
I don’t think there’s much more to read there except this contextualisation of their “Celebrity birthday of the day” Facebook post.

Arrow posted a tweet today with Friedkin's Cruising and the Arrow Video logo, celebrating the anniversary of its premiere. Has this been formally announced?

Tweet here.

Much to my surprise, according to the BBFC listing, Arrow will be releasing Jacques Tourneur’s Nightfall soon. I say ‘surprise’ as I had naturally assumed Indicator would be interested in another Tourneur noir from the Columbia catalogue after the huge success they had with Night of the Demon.

The Running Man (Carol Reed). Recent Academy postcards revealed it's forthcoming.

Really? Can you take a pic of the said postcard.

Said before, but can't really understand why no UK label has yet released Carol Reed's Our Man in Havana. From what I've seen the Sony master is impeccable!

If Reed's The Running Man and Nightfall were to be announced this month, it would be such a great pair of announcements by Arrow.

From an Arrow Q&A over on the dark (blue) side:

- Hopefully more "Fukasaku and/or Sonny Chiba" this year

- Asian cinema from outside of Japan this year

- Re: Robocop: "[they're] not doing a new restoration, but using the current master which we can emphasise is a director-approved 4K scan of the O-neg, though we are going to try and improve the unrated sections. No 1.66:1 option (not possible without going back to raw scans or starting again, plus was a concession to 4x3 TVs when Criterion released the film). No Robodoc due to scheduling and legal issues though we are working with the producers on some new extras! There are also no plans for a UHD release at this time."

- No UHD plans, but first 4K digital release later this year

- More film noir and gialli

- Tried for but didn't get Angel's Egg and The Masque of the Red Death

- No to Raul Ruiz, Hideo Gosha, Bergman, Hard Target, Lynch's Dune, Death Wish 2, Smile (Michael Ritchie), Dog Soldiers, Friedkin's Rampage, Trick or Treat

- Available materials not good enough for Alexander Nevsky

- Cruising is currently a one-off from Warner

- An 80s teen movie will be announced in the next few months

I suppose Cruising is the higher profile Friedkin but I've wanted to see Rampage for years now. I know VHS copies exist but it's never been out on DVD/Blu-Ray here in the US. Is a rights issue holding it up? I know it's original distributor DEG went Bankrupt and Miramax eventually put it out five years after it was made. Was a reason given for Rampage not coming out or do you know?

Oh man. That's very disappointing. Who else would release their films if not Arrow?

I... guess I'll see what goes on with the French release then. I don't expect it to be particularly good since the French label releasing it is far from having a stellar reputation, but that doesn't bode well.

True. I currently can't picture Gosha's movies getting released on HD in the UK in any other label than Arrow.

Interesting they intend to release 4K digital but no UHDs are planned. With Samsung pulling back on new 4k players, hard to see smaller studios jumping on board.

I'd also like to know. RAMPAGE is truly fascinating and needs a definitive edition as the two different cuts provide the film with very different meanings. Also, this was barely even released on DVD - I had a Polish import DVD - in just one of the two cuts.

A real curiosity as it alternates tones and genres, from serial killer to dynamic police procedural to horror to courtroom TV movie...

Hope someone good plans to do it.

Also I guess it would be cheesy fun to see the two CAT Squad TV movies, at some point.

That would explain why it does not appear on the upcoming In The Aftermath disc, with a discussion from Andrew Osmond about Angel's Egg instead, which is a shame but hopefully that means someone else might be releasing it (either that or it was too expensive to justify picking up)

Adrian Martin's wikipedia page notes he recorded commentaries for these upcoming Arrow releases:
Hold Back the Dawn (Leisen – Arrow, 2019 forthcoming)
The Far Country (Mann – Arrow, 2019 forthcoming)
I searched the forum but didn't see these releases listed. Usually I'm the last to know, so forgive me if I missed their earlier announcements.

Excellent news for both, but I'm especially looking forward to more Mann-Stewart Westerns on Blu-ray. Thanks for posting this! :)

The New Beverly Cinema screened a gorgeous print of the De Laurentiis Entertainment Group cut of Rampage. Hell, it might've been the first screening
of it in the States since it played at festivals in '87. I can't imagine that it's a music rights problem, and I don't know if Friedkin even has the capacity to suppress it,
a la Michael Mann and The Keep. It was marketed as a thriller/horror work, but it's really an incredibly sorrowful work.

Adrian Martin's Wiki page states that he recorded audio commentaries for Hold Back The Dawn and The Far Country, both showing as "upcoming" from Arrow.
