    It may be a 4K restoration, but it's likely to be a standard blu-ray release. I don't think Kino is releasing 4K UHD discs unless I missed that announcement somewhere.

    They are releasing a 4K master, not an UHD disc of Hitch-Hiker. Its being given a 4K scan..

    For those who "Liked" the original post above, Warner Archive just announced on 11/2/18 they are releasing this mini-series on Blu-ray by year's end. Information is located in the new release announcements on Blu-ray.com home page. The label image displayed there indicates a run time of 180 min but I don't know if this was furnished by WAC or not. The Blu-ray.com description page uses the IMDB run time of 240 min. Either scenario will be an improvement over the drastically cut 2 hour movie that has been circulating in recent years. I hope I'm not too far out of line posting this update, but if so, I do apologize. Now back to reading all these great announcements from KL Insider...

    Any word yet on when the Kolchak movies will be shipping to the people who preordered them through the Kino site? It's approaching three months since I ordered it using paypal.

    I saw this film in the 60's at the Village Theater in Claremont, California. I was fully engaged, entertained and amazed. I look forward to seeing it again now to see if I still feel the same way.

    You should contact them. I ordered both Kolchak blu's from the Kino site on October 1, and had them in my hands a few days later.

    I have contacted them. I preordered the two Kolchaks and Trilogy during the sale in September. When the Kolchaks were released, and I didn't receive them, I emailed them. They said they were going to ship the Kolchak discs when Trilogy was ready to ship to save shipping. Weeks ago, when I received Trilogy the receipt was marked "OOS" on the Kolchaks. I contacted them and they said that the Kolchaks were out of stock and they would ship them when they had them back in stock again. I don't understand why they would take my money for a preorder and not reserve a copy for me. Last time I asked in this thread, they said they didn't know when the Kolchaks were going to be in stock again and I had to be patient. It's been almost three months now, and they have never sent me an email with updates on what's going on. Meanwhile the discs are on sale over at Amazon.

    KINO PLEASE GET ON THE BALL AND FILL THE ORDER I PAID FOR IN SEPTEMBER. If there is someone there I can speak to about it, please give me a contact. I got nowhere with the submission form on your site.

    Wonder if it has to do with the current replication woes that have hit a lot of labels.........my retailer can't get copies of LISBON and A MAN ALONE right now.

    But nevertheless a good reminder, Malcolm, that this thread is designated to be specifically about Kino release announcements/reax.

    I am looking for a release date for the Kolchak movies. I preordered them and they haven't been released to me yet.

    They aren't shipping in order of the order dates. They shipped copies of the Kolchak movies to people who ordered them after I did. The problem was that they held off shipping the Kolchaks until Trilogy was released, but they didn't reserve copies of the Kolchaks for people who ordered both. By the time Trilogy came out, they had run out of stock on the Kolchaks. They shipped off plenty of stock to retailers.

    In the past three months, I haven't received a single email from them apologizing and letting me know there was a delay, and even after I emailed them and asked, they still won't give any estimate about when my order will be filled. All I got was a receipt for Trilogy with OOS written next to the Kolchak titles.

    I understand that there is a problem with replication right now. But it feels to me like I am at the bottom of their priority list. I think they are pushing new titles through replication before fulfilling the orders that they have already taken and been paid for just because Halloween is over. They're leaving customers like me holding the bag. That isn't right.
