Here is a list of titles expected to be forthcoming from Criterion according to various forms of communication through announcements, including newsletters, emails, blogs, websites, social networks, and non-official sources with valuable creditability. Please see Criterion's own site for titles already announced, but not yet released.

Criterion announces new titles at their website, on the 15th of every month, unless that date falls on a weekend, holiday, or there is just a delay.

Even if a film is listed below, this list is not an indicator that the film will be announced immediately. Criterion releases are often held up by a multitude of factors: restorations, director approval, supplements, cover art, etc. Expecting or demanding that a certain film be announced at a certain time is a fruitless endeavor. It is better to wait and enjoy the titles that have been announced, so that the film you are hoping for can receive the best edition possible. You should not see this list as 100% confirmation of anything, as things can and do change, even when a film has already been announced officially (see Contempt + Ran blu-rays).

This forthcoming list is grouped by the source of information. Generally, the list trends downwards (separated by "-------") in terms of strength of information source and immediacy / expectation of announcement.

If you have any information regarding a film addition to the list, corrections, broken links, please send me a private message.
