KL Insider, I know it gets tiresome if we ask you incessant "Do you have...?" questions, but I'm hoping your Paramount deal remains in place and that the Paramount-owned Regal Productions are part of that... especially 1957's The Unknown Terror. These more obscure widescreen genre titles are ripe for the blu-ray pickings.

I thought that was with Fox, IMDB says they were a distributor. Maybe it is with Paramount. It probably falls into the minor B movies, like Devil Girl From Mars most of which I enjoy more than the Oscar Award Winning titles
I like the movie, fungus movies are awesome. Id love Blu-rays for SpaceMaster X7 and Mutiny in Outer Space. Id love for some company to release them. :)

At least some of the Regals reside in the Paramount library, I believe. She Devil (1957) for example was distributed thru Fox but was issued on blu ray by Olive Films I believe via Olive's Paramount deal. All part of the tangled web involving National Telefilm Associates (NTA), Republic and Paramount (space forbids getting into it all here).

Unknown Terror, Back from the Dead and Spacemaster X-7 were all distributed thru Fox. Spacemaster X-7 has been shown on Fox Movie Channel, so it may be under Fox ownership. Kronos of course has been issued on DVD (albeit not in proper aspect ratio) via Image Entertainment's deal with Wade Williams.

Unknown Terror had its last TV airing (of which I'm aware) back in the '90s on the old Sci-Fi Channel back when it was co-owned by Paramount and Universal and was airing movies from the Paramount library.

BTW, the best available DVDs (I know of) are as follows:

Kronos: the Italian DVD under the title "Kronos - Il Conquistatore Dell'Universo"

Spacemaster X-7: the German DVD under the title "Raum Rakete X-7"

Unknown Terror: ??? (I'm forced to satisfy myself with my old copy off the Sci-Fi Channel)

Back from the Dead: ?????

I have these two.
Kronos: the Italian DVD under the title "Kronos - Il Conquistatore Dell'Universo"
Spacemaster X-7: the German DVD under the title "Raum Rakete X-7"
I have some off-brand release of Unknown Terror , not sure where I got it exactly
I also have an Italian DVD of The Amazing Colossal Man

Coming September 29th!

The Milagro Beanfield War (1988)
• NEW Audio Commentary by Star Chick Vennera and Film Historian/Filmmaker Daniel Kremer
• Theatrical Trailer
• Dual-Layered BD50 Disc
• Optional English Subtitles

Color 117 Minutes 1.85:1 Rated R
From Robert Redford, the award-winning director of Ordinary People, A River Runs Through It, Quiz Show, The Horse Whisperer and The Legend of Bagger Vance, comes this absolutely delightful comedy of everyday people caught up in extraordinary circumstances. When Chicano handyman Joe Mondragon (Chick Vennera, Last Rites) from the Milagro Valley decides to irrigate his small beanfield by “borrowing” some water from a large and potentially destructive site, he unknowingly sets off a chain reaction that erupts into a humorous culture clash. The developers then try to stamp out the modest plantings, forcing the handyman’s friends to team up with the spirited “rebel” to protect and preserve their way of life. The stellar cast includes Rubén Blades (Color of Night), Sônia Braga (The Rookie), Melanie Griffith (A Stranger Among Us), John Heard (Deceived), Daniel Stern (Celtic Pride), Christopher Walken (King of New York), M. Emmet Walsh (Blood Simple) and music legend Freddy Fender. The Milagro Beanfield War won an Oscar for Best Original Score by the great Dave Grusin (Fuzz, Havana).

The rights are with Fox, some of the later Regal titles like this and the Charles Bronson film, Gang War were distributed by Fox and became their property. If and when we do another deal with Disney/Fox, I doubt this title would be on our radar.

The sales for similar titles have been poor, so I doubt we would take on any of these, unless we receive a restored master and the asking price is not too high.

Coming September 29th!

Havana (1990)
• Audio Commentary by Film Historian and Critic Sergio Mims
• Theatrical Trailer
• Dual-Layered BD50 Disc
• Optional English Subtitles

Color 144 Minutes 1.85:1 Rated R
A gambler who trusted no one… A woman who risked everything… And a passion that brought them together in the most dangerous city in the world! From Sydney Pollack, the outstanding director of They Shoot Horses, Don’t They?, The Yakuza, Three Days of the Condor, Absence of Malice, Tootsie and The Firm, comes this epic drama set in pre-Castro Cuba. High-rolling poker player Jack Weil (Robert Redford, The Natural) is trying to make one big score in 1958 Havana, a pleasure-seeker’s paradise on the verge of revolution. But his plan doesn’t include falling for Roberta (Lena Olin, Romeo Is Bleeding), the beautiful, enigmatic wife of revolutionary Arturo Duran (Raul Julia, The Addams Family). After Arturo is removed by the police, Jack is drawn closer to Roberta, who ignites a passion that threatens his last chance for the big score. The top-notch cast includes Alan Arkin (The In-Laws), Tomas Milian (The Big Gundown), Richard Farnsworth (The Grey Fox), Tony Plana (¡Three Amigos!), Mark Rydell (The Long Goodbye) and Dennis Farina (Manhunter). Havana received an Oscar nomination for Best Original Score by the great Dave Grusin (Fuzz, The Milagro Beanfield War).

I think you're barking up the wrong tree with The Devils (oh well, I have it on DVD, better than nothing), but...The Music Lovers. I believe now owned by MGM, I'd have thought it would have been licensed out by now, but nothing yet.

The Devils is with Warner last I heard, and is often rumored to be a Criterion release, but internet rumors are a dime a dozen
I saw a screening of The Devils with Guillermo del Toro speaking about it, and he said that someone with pull at Warner Bros. hates the film and does't want it released.
