re: The One and Only Kino Lorber Blu-ray Thread

For those so inclined, Kino just tweeted they'll be releasing Ridley Scott's 1492: CONQUEST OF PARADISE on Blu-Ray and DVD. I assume there's some kind of involved ownership history behind this one? I remember Paramount releasing it to theatres, but don't recall seeing or hearing much about it since then . . .

Interesting because I think you're right, the ownership rights were strange. I think Ridley Scott owns a direct piece of the movie.

I really hope the 1492 release has a good set of extras. I've been waiting for this for years and resorted to buying the French and German releases (in addition to the letterbox VHS and laserdisc). Still holding out hope the teaser with the Enigma music will finally see the light of day.

I have that trailer on 35mm- it was traditionally at the start of my "random crap reel" I kept adding and subtracting other trailers from- since it's hard-matted it made sure I got the framing right.

Ha! So do I! It's one of my favorite "banned" teasers I kept, along with the Jurassic Park teaser and that 20 minute reel of The Program where those kids were laying on the road in the middle of traffic. I think I gathered 10 reels of teasers over the 12 years I worked in theaters and festivals.

Paramount still has the rights. Kino Lorber struck a licensing deal, and this title is the first of many. Can't speak to why we haven't seen much of it between then and now, though.

Over at the BD forum, there are several hints of a lot of golden age 3D coming due to this licensing deal! Very sweet!

Any hints? I skimmed the last four or five pages of what I thought was the relevant thread there (maybe not?) and all I saw was constant and repetitive begging for titles their "insider" already told them weren't part of the deal because they were previously released, tied up with WB, could've been Googled, etc. What a slog . . .

How was that 1492 trailer "banned"? My theater played it a lot, but never actually got the movie. We already stopped showing "The Program" before they replaced the reel with the freeway scene, but there's a few seconds of that in the trailer. I have nearly every trailer from 1991 til 2001, and a few random defective reels (fading to black or color shifting.) One of the last trailers I got was the Spider-Man World Trade Center teaser, oddly I'd put in my 2 weeks' notice to essentially leave the theater business on September 8th that year.

Paramount sent a cease and desist letter to all of the theaters asking for it to be removed and destroyed ASAP. I kept it because I thought it was funny. I guess it got resolved or whatever because the trailer I posted from YouTube was posted by Paramount.

I forgot about that teaser for Spider-Man, but I do still have the poster for it.

The whole thing started with the 3D Film Archive on Facebook.



The strongest speculation seems to be:



Golden Age 3D, so no Friday the 13th Part III. Hondo isn't owned by Paramount, so that's not in the running either. The Popeye cartoon mentioned above has been shot down.

Edit: or what Spiderbite posted.

re: The One and Only Kino Lorber Blu-ray Thread

Kino Lorber is launching a new imprint: Kino Lorber Repertory. The idea is that they're going to release somewhere around a movie a month in theaters, and then those films (a mix of cult and classics) will make their way to VOD and Blu-ray.

1981's The Pit is first to bat, hitting theaters next month and arriving on Blu-ray in October. Following that are The Wanderers, seven Lina Wertmuller films, Godard's La Chinoise and Le Gai Savoir, new restorations of yet-to-be-announced Buster Keaton films, Andrey Zvyagintsev's The Return and The Banishment, and Josef von Sternberg's Anatahan.

Oh, that's welcome news. That means Kino/Lorber has acquired the Paramount titles previously released as double features by Legend Films. Hopefully each film in those Double Features will see individual releases. I was about to order "The Man Who Could Cheat Death" and The Skull." Hopefully, these will be of superior quality because the Legend disc was far less desirable than the Eureka version. Legend also released a Tony Curtis double feature of "Those Daring Young Men in Their Jaunty Jalopies" and "Houdini." Evidently "Houdini" will also be released soon. This is really good news.

I just wanna hear that the best title in the Amicus library (in my humble opinion), "Asylum" is released in short order.

A tweet from Kino today announced that the upcoming Blu-Ray of FATHOM has been "cancelled indefinitely." No details, sadly . . .

Anyone get Grandview U.S.A.? This seems like a perfect 80's movie that I like. Great cast. The price tag @ $20 is a little steep though with no extras. Does it have replay value?

I love 80s teen movies. The cast is good. But the movie is lame as hell. I bought the DVD a while back, watched it once, and sold it immediately after. Definitely do not pay full price for this. Wait for a sale if you need to see/own it.

Kino announced they would release Seven Beauties at the end of this year, but there doesn't appear to be an announcement. Does anyone know what happened to it?

They are supposedly doing a 2K restoration and are also working on Swept Away. Probably taking longer than they expected. Looking forward to those.
