The Tenant is getting a Blu-ray release from Shock in Australia in August, though I don't know how that impacts your genitals

Well, I just found a bullet-pen in my Grindhouse disc of The Tough Ones. Maybe Criterion will include that extra gential set in their Tenant, if it happens.

Considering how many Polanski films are in the collection and how much Chinatown has been in the cultural conversation since the Epstein arrest, I'm not so sure he's "cancelled" in the sort of way that would make Criterion stay away. If there's a restoration of The Tenant that's available to them, I'd be shocked if they'd pass on it.

Those already have a Blu release. Peeping Tom on the other hand needs to be redone.

I know, I have both of them. Just saying they will be announced as returning to the collection. But my post was more tongue in cheek

People are putting all this thought into 1,000....999 is the real question. And if its anything other than the Devils I’m gonna be disappointed.

Is there a reason Star 80 is popping up in multiple lists? Was there a hint or tease I missed or is it just wishing and hoping?

Wishful thinking on my part. Don’t know about anyone else.

They’ll drop 999 and announce they’re pulling an oppo on physical media.

If it is just the Showa series and Criterion includes the original, it'll be 14 or 15 films depending on if Universal licenses King Kong vs Godzilla to them.

I was expecting it to come out closer to the holiday season, much like the Bergman set, but there's no harm in having it out sooner. With that in mind, I can have at least one guess correct:

Citizen Kane (if this announced, then The Other Side of the Wind or The Eyes of Orson Welles)
The Grand Budapest Hotel
The Devils
Bamboozled
Godzilla box set

The Bergman set was announced in mid-July but didn't come out til November, and as I recall the Olympic set also was revealed outside of the regular announcements. I imagine it will get a separate announcement like those did, apart from the usual 15th of the month announces
