Fox is rereleasing all the Die Hards again, this time inside the Nakatomi Plaza

However, as dumb as this, allegedly the set will finally contain the Unrated version of Live Free or Die Hard on Blu for the first time

Not that anyone cares because it is terrible, but isn't that a little spoiler for the fifth movie's villain?

The card for the fifth movie's villain should be a picture of whoever greenlit the film

Per MifuneFan on blu-ray.com, some of the Regency re-issues are starting to show up at foxconnect.com.

EDIT: Also Breaking Up, Carpool, Dangerous Beauty, Goodbye Lover, Made in America, Second Best, the Sunchaser, and That Night. Fox just doubled their yearly back catalog output in one release day!
Anyone know what the deal is with this slate of titles? I preordered The New Age from Amazon, which was supposed to finally be shipping this week, and it seems like it's been delayed again indefinitely, relegated to the limbo of "currently unavailable" without having yet been officially canceled or rescheduled.

I suspect a lot of these were simply Fox re-issues of DVDs incorrectly listed as BDs.

James Cameron confirmed work on a new wet-gate 4K scan of The Abyss, and a possible release on Blu-ray early next year.

Wednesday Disney officially takes over 20th Century Fox. It'll be interesting to see what direction the Fox catalogue goes in, but I don't have confidence that Disney will be cinephile friendly. The catalogue will end up on the Disney streaming service, but can't see anymore than that.

Disney has licensed titles to Kino (and more selectively to Criterion), so maybe they'll be okay with Fox titles continuing to be licensed to Twilight Time, Shout Factory and perhaps a new batch to Kino.

I don't know if all of the Fox catalogue goes to the new service, they are aiming to be family-friendly. I am guessing the more non-family movies would go to Hulu, where they might wind up taking over first-run TV rights from HBO.

But what it means for physical media who knows. Disney let Criterion put out the three movies Wes Anderson directed for them on Blu-ray, so maybe they could have the same leeway for Fox.

How will Disney handle Fox Archive for repertory bookings... This needs to be watched going forward, as this could be an indicaation of what's to come for the Fox catalogue
