This has been listed for pre-order in several places (Amazon, Blu-ray.com, highdefdiscnews.com), so I guess it's looking good to go for July 6. Looks like it is the only additional Harryhausen title to be scheduled at this point, probably to cash in on the mythological momentum from CLASH OF THE TITANS. No special features have yet been announced. I still have a DVD-R of the Harryhausen commentary track from the Criterion laser disc, so I am hoping it will be ported over, and that the two night scenes have been corrected to look like night, as Criterion also did).  Anyway, great news!

Hell yes!

"And now the reprimand, from an American critic. He reproaches me for using film as a sacred & lasting medium, like a painting or a book. He does not believe that filmmaking is an inferior art, but he believes, and quite rightly, that a reel goes quickly, that the public are looking above all for relaxation, that film is fragile and that it is pretentious to express the power of one's soul by such ephemeral and delicate means, that Charlie Chaplin's or Buster Keaton's first films can only be seen on very rare and badly spoiled prints. I add that the cinema is making daily progress and that eventually films that we consider marvelous today will soon be forgotten because of new dimensions & colour. This is true. But for 4 weeks this film [The Blood of a Poet] has been shown to audiences that have been so attentive, so eager & so warm, that I wonder after all there is not an anonymous public who are looking for more than relaxation in the cinema." - Jean Cocteau, 1932

Exactly what I was thinking
