I predict a tomorrow announcement for a 1/28 release date.
As the voice of pessimism here, I predict a November announcement -- November of 2016.
Actually, what I really think is going to happen is that the whole thing will be cancelled at the last minute due to an unforeseen legal problem.
"Wait a minute! Are you knocking this country? Are you saying something against America?!!!"
I predict they announce next month for release in February.
I wonder what we are looking at disc wise? 1 blu-ray or 2? 2 DVD's or 3? And how much would a 5 disc set cost? Criterion swears that the dual format releases won't increase the retail price. But will this be massive enough to warrant a $50 SRP?I paid more than that for the laserdisc. And the B&N sale will cut the price in half. So I am not too worried in the great scheme of things.But regardless of price, this will be a day one purchase for me.
Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow,Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,To the last syllable of recorded time;And all our yesterdays have lighted foolsThe way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!Life's but a walking shadow, a poor playerThat struts and frets his hour upon the stageAnd then is heard no more. It is a taleTold by an idiot, full of sound and furySignifying nothing.
Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow. It empties today of its strength.
~ Corrie Ten Boom
I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it.

Just saw on dvd Stanley Kramer's 1969 movie "The Secret of Santa Vittoria" with Anthony Quinn and Anna Magnani -- a few of the 'Mad World' people worked on this picture, notably William Rose who co-wrote the screenplay.
Plenty of 'Mad World'-like one-liners (usually with a very exaggerated Italian accent) and situations in this picture. For those waiting on Criterion, check this movie out in the meantime if you haven't seen it -- no Anthony Quinn from the late 60s onward is complete without him launching into some kind of dance routine and he is in turbo-mode throughout this movie (but he's no Dick Shawn)
There's just a few more hours--
That's all the time we've got.
A few more hours--
Before we know wot's wot.
I like "Grouch" just as much as the next guy, but that's ridiculous. What if the "event" is something horribly tragic, like having your child murdered? Do you "choose" to be happy?
And yesterday is never dead. It's what we learn from so we don't make the same mistakes tomorrow, which, though it hasn't "arrived yet," has to be planned for.
I bet you Groucho Marx never said such a thing. How could he get the nickname Groucho with that Pollyanna attitude?
Let's stick to quoting "Mad World" around here.
Well, I just sold my old MGM Blu-Ray to Amoeba (with a slew of other stuff I traded in), so needless to say, this HAS to mean that we'll get an announcement tomorrow, right? Sadly, my gesture probably just doomed this release forever.
I am traveling today. Should be back home by the time Criterion
emails us their official press release.
I highly expect an announcement to be made later today.
Just wanted to put a placeholder thread on the forum so that I can
easily move your post-announcement discussions in this thread over
to the new one.
So, if and when the announcement is made, please share the specs
and talk about the pending release. I am going to try and migrate those
posts from here to the new thread. I should be able to figure it out.
Be patient -- I am learning this platform and am anticipating the move
of posts can be made.
You'll hear the news from the Criterion website or Facebook thread
prior to me. I'll be reading some of your comments as I land and will
post the official press release later today (if it is made, which I am expecting).
Keep your fingers crossed. It should be a big day today.
I can never remember exactly what time Criterion release their information, but I seem to remember it's when I'm abed.
Fingers crossed for that 15 disc award winning Polish experimental animation release.
And, of course, for IAMMMMW, which I know will make a lot of people very happy.
I suspect that, when it finally is announced, I'll hear the cheers on this side of the pond, so be a bunch of good chaps and try to keep the noise down.
I am starting to tingle all over.
woot! Now, lets make an Old Fashion, the Old Fashioned way!
The anticipation is worse than looking for a big W.
Still more annoyed we're not getting Scanners this year.
Joe ... perhaps it's time to go out in the sunlight for a while.
If they are going to include the General Release and some Extended Roadshow Cut, and they can't branch (which I would imagine is the case) then that means at least 2 Blu-ray Discs, and with extras 3 DVD discs.Criterion is all Dual-Format now, which means a 5 disc set.The price point for that is $50 MSRP.
The coming soon page is blank now, so they could be uploading the new titles.
