A trailer for Aki Kaurismäki's THE OTHER SIDE OF HOPE has been posted to YouTube under The Criterion Collection's account.

So I guess that's coming next year.

I appreciate that it actually looks like it was shot on film. So many movies that make a big deal about that like Nolan's and Tarantino's look so digital nowadays presumably due to digital color timing or editing, but that honestly looks like the real deal (to the extant you can tell from a Youtube video).

Could any more Desplechin be coming to Criterion? I noticed he did one of their closet photos recently, just wondering which one it would be if it happens (maybe one of the recent two--since these newer movies seem to pop up on criterion every other month?)

How did you see Tarantino's / Nolan's pictures? Projected or digital or at home?

I'm not completely sure about Tarantino's postproduction workflow, Nolan though, that is as analog as he can get. No digital intermediate EXCEPT for the DCP's. Which are based on the good oldfashioned laboratory colortiming.

Their look is, in my eyes, far from digital.

So, does anyone know yet or have the slightest idea or information as to whether the announcements are happening today?

Silence of the Lambs announcement appears to be nigh:

Might they have got their hands on the BBC’s Threads?

No, Severin is releasing that.

Golly, 7 releases, and 3 with 2 discs, almost all of which register as a !!!!! to me.

And all three of the two disc blurays are currently priced at $39.95 rather than the standard 2 disc price of $49.95. Possibly an error on their part, but bargain hunters may want to jump on the price, particularly if Amazon makes the same mistake and discounts steeper than Criterion.com's price.

You didn't know, Ribs always has a couple of cocktails on announcement day.

Timing for the releases of Night of the Living Dead and Silence of Lambs smells like flash sale.

No, most recently the $49.95, with the exception of Othello, has been for two films on two discs, not two disc sets

Silence of the Lambs's release is *probably* meant to mirror its original February release, though it's not an even anniversary year. I'd agree the two of them certainly seem like the week they'd do it but usually the February flash sale is a bit later!

Boyhood, Barry Lyndon, A Brighter Summer Day, and Rebecca are $40 MSRP 2-disc sets, too.

Definitely, once the clue was released I figured they would line it up with the Valentine's Day release date as best as possible. It's one of those films that is just iconic for when it was released so it's hard to read too much into its placement on the 13th. That said, I'd definitely wager the sale comes either the week of the 13th or the week after, as I'd imagine Criterion will want to strike when the iron is hot with two huge releases like Silence of the Lambs and Night of the Living Dead.

both Tom Jones and NOTLD have two versions, like Othello, NOTLD is even a 3 DVD release and commensurately priced at 39.95 for the DVD, rather than 29.95.

Silence of the Lambs may be more like a Rebecca case though where an excess of extras necessitates it.

Also, though it was 2 discs and pricier even before it appeared Othello did end up with an extra film in the end.

Funny, I never even look at the DVD specs anymore, so I didn't notice that NotLD is a 3-DVD set. Maybe given all the PD releases of NotLD, they've decided to go with the $40 MSRP instead of the usual $50 MSRP.

So with today's announcement of Tom Jones and Silence of the Lambs, Dead Man is the only outstanding Newsletter clue?

Wasn't Sixteen Candles a clue? Unless that turned out to be Barry Lyndon?

Wow! What a month. Here's that thing I do:

Night of the Living Dead - Janus tour

The Hero - On Filmstruck, part of their steady march of Satyajit Ray films (though I thought Devi was to be next). A surprise

An Actor's Revenge - Filmstruck, not hinted or rumored or even guessed, so a surprise!

Tom Jones - Aug newsletter clue + on Filmstruck

Elevator to the Gallows - A surprise upgrade, though it has been restored lately

Silence of the Lambs - Sep newsletter clue + upgrade (that's been LONG OOP)
============================================================
We're now down to 53 OOP titles. 265 upgrades remain. For those who always ask "which newsletter clues / new years clues, etc do we have left" .... thankfully our forum has a nice list of forthcoming titles that stays up to date and is maintained by a certain someone. And let's not go into the rat/possum debate every month! Criterion doesn't really do theme months (more than just maybe two), but they could've done an all Best Picture month, but I'm not complaining! Also 16 Candles has been confirmed, thus that's what the 16 candles in the New Years clue is.

Absolutely fantastic month, and can't wait for Night of the Living Dead + Tom Jones.
