Does anyone know what the spirit of the beehive status is? It's only available from 3rd party sellers for $300 on Amazon and its currently backordered on criterion. What's curious is that the "in stock/available to ship" keeps getting pushed back day by day. Started out April 30th when I checked a few days ago, today it says May 3rd. I'll bet tomorrow it says May 4th. Could this hopefully be a sign of a blu ray upgrade? Or is it just wishful thinking? We did get the announcement for El Sur last month. I just hope it's not out of print.

Might we be getting an upgrade of the whole set? I've held off buying the Blu of 400 Blows in hopes of that.

In particular I have only seen this on 3 box sets but on the new website if you go to any films in the Eisenstein Sound, AK 100, Teshigahara, and Sternberg Silents, it states "Ships Jun. 3, 2018" yet says OOP. I tried other films in OOP sets yet it doesn't say it is shipping. Is that a sign that possibly they will be re-released and they are prepping for a blu ray of any of these?

With the announcement of a touring copy of Andrei Rublev with the Janus logo it's a dead cert
for a Bluray upgrade within the next three months.
