    Well, this will narrow the missing-in-action Harryhausen titles a bit, down to the final 1/3:

    First Men In the Moon (likely future TT title)
    Three Worlds Of Gulliver (likely future TT title)
    Valley Of Gwangi (Now that Harryhausen's gone, maybe WB will give us this one)
    Mighty Joe Young (ditto)
    One Million Years B.C. - hopefully the 100-minute cut. (How about it, Fox? Give it to TT!)

    And also The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms.

    Warner Bros could give us three of these as a tribute to the late great. And maybe Fox will finally concede to giving TT its longer version of B.C.

    Press Release 12/01/2013​
    Twilight Time in continuing its proud tradition of honoring RAY HARRYHAUSEN, the Grand Master of Special Effects, announces the first time availability of one of the most eagerly anticipated BLU-RAY releases of the season!​
    “THE GOLDEN VOYAGE OF SINBAD”
    Limited Edition BLU-RAY Release​
    Only 3,000 units available at​
    www.screenarchives.com / TCMSHOP.com​
    Once they are gone – they are gone!​
    RELEASE DATE: TUESDAY, DECEMBER 10TH, 2013
    “Horror film director [Gordon] Hessler and special effects man Ray Harryhausen combine brilliantly to trace Sinbad’s mystical voyage. The effects aren’t simply fascinating for their own sake—they genuinely convey a sense of the magical and otherworldly.”
    Time Out London
    “Great fun…Fast-paced and exciting, the film features some of Harryhausen’s best stop-motion animation work. Tom (television’s Dr. Who) Baker makes a marvelous villain.” TV Guide
    In The Golden Voyage of Sinbad (1973), animation/special effects genius Ray Harryhausen gives us another installment in the adventures of Sinbad (John Phillip Law), the swashbuckling sailor here pitted against the nefarious master of the black arts, Koura (Tom Baker). As the two race to find a magical treasure trove, Sinbad must confront a host of astonishing creatures, including a wee winged homunculus, a one-eyed centaur, and a six-armed, scimitar-wielding deity, the dreaded Kali. Featuring a spectacular score by the inimitable Miklos Rozsa (Ben-Hur), available on this Twilight Time release as an isolated track.

    Press Release 12/01/2013​
    Twilight Time is delighted to bring to BLU-RAY for the very first time, Director Richard Lester’s madcap romp through Victorian England, with that irascible blade – the one and only, Malcolm McDowell!​
    “ROYAL FLASH”
    Limited Edition BLU-RAY Release​
    Only 3,000 units available at​
    www.screenarchives.com / TCMSHOP.com​
    Once they are gone – they are gone!​
    RELEASE DATE: TUESDAY, DECEMBER 10TH, 2013
    “Harry Flashman is good comic company, and Royal Flash is good comic fun…Mr. Lester throws away more gags in Royal Flash than some comedy directors think up in an entire career…he is profligate with his talents.” —Vincent Canby, The New York Times
    “The director’s visual style is as strong and witty as ever…some kind of riotous comic strip of Victorian England.” Time Out London
    “If you liked Richard Lester’s The Three (and Four) Musketeers, you’ll like this…The same subtle detailing and unsubtle slapstick that made The Three Musketeers so much fun are here in full force.”
    Chicago Reader
    Adapted by George MacDonald Fraser from his novel (the second in the popular 12-book series, “The Flashman Papers”), Royal Flash (1975) gives us that energetic cad, Harry Flashman (Malcolm McDowell), taking reluctant if opportunistic part in 19th-century history. Here, he’s inveigled into a plot engineered by the fearsome Otto von Bismarck (Oliver Reed) and must utilize all his wily talents to emerge unscathed. Directed by Richard Lester (A Hard Day’s Night, Petulia), and also starring Alan Bates, Florinda Balkan, Britt Ekland, and a host of superb British character actors: Tom Bell, Joss Ackland, Christopher Cazenove, Lionel Jeffries, Alastair Sim, Michael Hordern, Bob Hoskins, and David Jason.

    RELEASE DATE: TUESDAY, DECEMBER 10TH, 2013
    “The creations of animation expert Ray Harryhausen…have given this series something of a cult following…No child could ask for much more.” The New York Times
    “The film is, in fact, the most lavish looking of the animator’s career…Harryhausen’s creations are more like characters than the usual monsters our heroes poke sticks at.” DVD Talk
    The third in special effects genius Ray Harryhausen’s trilogy of films about the legendary sailor (played here by Patrick Wayne), Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger (1977) tells the tale of Sinbad’s quest to return the brother of his beloved Princess Farah (Jane Seymour) to manhood after an evil witch (Margaret Whiting) turns him into a chess-playing, sad-faced baboon. Along for the ride are a magician (Patrick Troughton, the second Doctor Who) and his beauteous daughter (Taryn Power), caught up in a journey that features encounters with a panoply of astonishing Harryhausen creatures, including a trio of ghouls, a gigantic troglodyte, and a fearsome mechanical minotaur.

    Since Fox doesn't seem interested, what are the odds of FLIGHT OF THE PHOENIX coming out thru TT? I don't remember the film's soundtrack being particularly impressive so I hope that alone isn't a deterrent for TT to pass on the film but it really needs to be on Blu-ray. Maybe as an extra they'll include the remake on there (just kidding).

    Is there any chance of TT releasing Soldier of Fortune during 2014?

    Royal Flash has me intrigued, and The Golden Voyage of Sinbad is very tempting.

    I also notice that they are limiting orders to 3 per person. That should limit the people who are buying them to sell at higher prices later.

    I noticed the 3 limit as well - a little higher than the recent 2 limit but I got my order in for both Sinbad movies so I am "good to go"!

    Regards

    Orders for both Sinbad releases ARE limited to 2 copies per customer. Am I missing something?

    It was 3 copies when first announced but is now 2 copies. Presumably they are selling well but I'd be surprised if they turn out to be a quick sell out.

    Whew! Glad I got my pre-order for both Sinbad films. I think you're right, they will probably be gone very soon.
