    So far only one full cover has been posted, but others should follow soon, I'm sure:

    This is great News! I wish Criterion would confirm these titles on their site!

    Excellent news! Harakiri is a great overlooked film which I'll be adding to my collection.

    Derek, these covers ARE from Criterion's official site, if you look at where the pictures are linked from.

    301 - ?
    302 - The Flowers of St Francis (Rossellini)
    303 - Harakiri (Kobayashi)
    304 - ?
    305 - Boudu Saved From Drowning (Renoir)

    Any info or speculation on the missing numbers?

    Nope, other than that Criterion routinely skip around a little on the numbers - they seem to be assigned fairly early in their internal production cycle.

    And Au Revoir Les Enfants is a goodish bet for 301

    Actually, it's now looking as though it's like this:

    293 - The Flowers of St Francis (Rossellini)

    301 - ?
    302 - Harakiri (Kobayashi)
    303 - ?
    304 - ?
    305 - Boudu Saved From Drowning (Renoir)

    Naturally I just bought the R2 DVD of Boudu Saved from Drowning. Good movie, but not good enough to rebuy.

    So it looks like Au Revoir Les Enfants has slipped again, at least until September...

    303 49th Parallel?
    304 A Canturbury Tale?

    Only guessing.
    Criterion is aparently working on these titles and I would expect them to be released side by side. I would love to see more Powell and Pressburger soon. Not to mention John Ford!
