If I'm not mistaken, when Cohen started releasing some on BDs, the restorations were still ongoing for some of the movies.

The customary Amazon leaks:

Kwaidan (MoC, reissue)

This Gun for Hire (Eureka Classics)

Made in Hong Kong (Masters of Cinema)

I have to say at some point Eureka decided to start hitting it out of the park, I might buy practically everything they release this year!

I think there was a year or two recently where I basically just started ignoring their announcements. But there recent output has been great.

I feel like their roadmap is determined months in advance. The year or two after they had all that staff shift around, there were definitely some quality issues and interest waned. I feel like we are now seeing the releases they probably licensed when a few years ago they mentioned being out-bid for things like Grey Gardens. So by not being able to license some more popular titles, we started getting the stuff we have seen over the last year and a half or so.

I literally almosted ordered the Mill Creek releases of the Toho sci-fi stuff, so I’m glad I waited.

Hopefully The War of the Gargantuas (1966) is on the cards as well. 🤗

Criterion has that one in the US and since it was a part of the same package as the Showa Godzillas, I assume that they have it in the UK

December announcements coming tomorrow. Has anybody managed to catch some leaks from Amazon?

Which is already in their Fuller box. Presumably that means they'll be rereleasing Hell or High Water as well

The Painted Bird is also being released, but as a November title.

I wonder what extra's The Painted Bird will have. The Czech disc has a second disc with a 'making of' which includes English subtitles. If MoC can come up with different extras I might double-dip.

Seriously annoying. So the Forty Guns 4k and book remains exclusive to the box?

Didn’t Eureka expressly say when it was announced that the Forty Guns repress would be exclusive to the box? Did I make that up?

You didn't, they apparently said so on Facebook.

Also, The Painted Bird is Eureka but not MoC. The other non-MoC releases for December are a box of Universal's Inner Sanctum Mystery films and a reissue of the Once Upon a Time in China set.

I am pleased that MoC did not wait too long before issuing single editions of the two Fuller titles that had not been issued previous to the "Fuller at Fox" set, now that it is out of print. For those who had bought the previous single releases of the 3 earlier titles, it felt like our being faithful customers to the company had been disregarded.

As for the 4k version of Forty Guns exclusive to the box set, it can be found on the Criterion edition along with the Fuller Life documentary.

Sure enough, the few people importing have this option but it remains region A locked and not a domestic release.

MoC doing this is the least surprising thing ever, the "Fuller at Fox" set is a lovely thing to have on your shelves, and it's not that much more expensive now on eBay. If you really want the box instead of the individual releases, then just buy it already
