With the release of the A24 Shop edition of Lamb, they mention that this will be "the first in a new line of A24 Blu-rays."

Previously, they have released the director's cut of Midsommar (UHD or Blu), The Last Black Man in San Francisco (UHD or Blu), and Krisha. https://shop.a24films.com/collections/blu-rays

David Lowery has already mentioned a special edition of The Green Knight is forthcoming.

I think it is a nice idea for boutique distributors to do their own releases, though the prices are high. A lot of their releases through Lionsgate are barebones. Some titles never even got a physical release.

Does this mean the boutique production company is becoming its own boutique UDH/Blu-ray distribution center, too? It looks like this is the only place to get Lamb right now, or at least certainly that version of it. That's fine by me, though $35 is pretty high, for me, though I really liked the movie.

It would seem they are certainly transitioning to that... at least for some titles. They have a rabid enough following who will buy from them.

I would imagine they could potentially follow a model similar to Oscilloscope. https://store.oscilloscope.net/colle...lloscope-films

It's gorgeous. The Last Black Man in San Francisco looks amazing too.

That bodes well for their transfers. I wonder if they'll dip into their catalog?

I sure hope so. I would definitely double dip on a handful of titles.

Yeah, the 4K of Midsommer is great. Great movie and a great transfer. I may blind buy Lamb.

My copy of Lamb just arrived. I’m not sure why they put in the specs that it was 6x9. It is the same size as a standard Blu-ray… which is how it looked in the pictures.

I finally got tracking information today and my copy is in NJ with an delivery estimate of 1/31.

I still need to pick-up Lamb & Krisha.

Saw Krisha at a local Half Price Books a few weeks back but the packaging looked like it was put through a blender
