In other news, it looks like King Creole (1958) will be getting a "Limited Issue" (digibook?) release on 3/17/20, along with a reissue of Fatal Attraction (1987) as a "Limited Issue". As these are being listed two months out at retailers they are likely regular pressed releases, perhaps along the lines of the reissue digibook of The Ten Commandments (1923/1956) announced for 3/10/20.

Turns out King Creole (1958) and Fatal Attraction (1957) (confirmed new remaster) (now coming 4/21/20) are the kickoff to a new "Paramount Presents" line, which will also include To Catch a Thief (1955) (also 4/21). Future releases include "newly remastered editions" for Flashdance (1983), Airplane! (1980) and Ghost (1990), as well as first-time on Blu-ray releases of Pretty in Pink (1986), and The Golden Child (1986).

“The ‘Paramount Presents’ banner encompasses a wide array of films that are worth revisiting because they captured something unique that resonated with audiences. Whether you’re watching them for the first time or the hundredth, you will see why these films have stood the test of time.”

Oh good, another Paramount line that will evaporate after a handful of releases.

Probably. but at least there will be some releases before that. Additionally, my understanding is that a newer hire in their home video division that came from another studio is the one spearheading this, and was the individual responsible for cracking their licensing policy of "no licensing of titles Paramount itself has released on DVD" for the Shout Factory licensed titles. So perhaps minor reasons to hope there. EDIT: Supposedly the person (persons?) that were behind Lionsgate's Vestron line of releases.

Oh well, as long as it brings us Roman Holiday on blu-ray at last.
