Ferris Bueller or Grand Budapest Hotel. Definitely one or two major studio titles, in time for the B&N sale and the holidays.

The magic flute

I half wonder if they’re going to put out the Bergman individual titles all at once they mentioned in the press release, the upgraded box set and magic flute and a spine number for shame. But that seems somewhat preposterous.

Given that we know Wanda and My Brilliant Career are coming, I wonder if whatever month they come out will be all female directors-- Varda and Denis already have likely future releases, prob wouldn't be hard to do

Do those folks guessing boxsets actually think Criterion is announcing another box for November after the Bergman box?

Be nice if they could include an Ida Lupino film if there was something that interested them.

Bergman box aside (I'm setting it aside because it doesn't have a spine number), there have been an equal number of rereleases and new titles over the last two months. I feel that they'll have to tip over to more new titles given their apparent backlog.

I typically predict stuff to be right, but now I'll just pick stuff I want...

4 Months, 3 Weeks, and 2 Days
Do the Right Thing (I'm still dying for this even though the Universal blu-ray is great)
In the Heat of the Night
Raging Bull (since MGM is shelling out major titles, why not?)
All the Presidents Men, Cool Hand Luke, Dog Day Afternoon and all the other great titles that'll never happen...

My wish list:

Eric Rohmer's Six Moral Tales
Wong Kar Wai's 2046
Grand Budapest Hotel
Wenders' Until the End of the World
Claire Denis' Let the Sunshine In
Assayas' Irma Vep (which I love) and/or Boarding Gate (which I've never seen, but want to)

Something by WKW... heck, let's say Days of Being Wild

Long shot: 24 Frames is Criterion's first UHD title
Longer shot: As a result of dealing with Shout Factory for Smithereens, Criterion also somehow re-negotiates the rights to Dead Ringers

Those I'd bet on, but I'd hope they would also release Come and See and something relating to WKW (but I understand if they won't considering the Bergman boxset)
