I'm more hopeful now knowing that "Rachel and the Stranger" which had similar issues as "The Big Sky" is coming out on Blu-ray with restored footage.
How much longer will we have to wait for Warner to release this Hawksian classic? Are the elements in such a bad shape as to rule out a blu-ray release? If a blu-ray is not possible, I'd be content with a dvd-only release, as they did for other top-tier titles like Fuller's Run of the Arrow or Ray's The Lusty Men...
Yes, it's a non essential business. I'm sure more warehouses shutting down will drastically cut down on mail order DVDs and blu rays. I did order some discs during the 4 for $44 sale before they shut down. They've already charged my credit card company. We'll see what happens.It appears WBShop may have shut down the sale due to Virus/Legal/Business issues. Obviously another casualty of the current world situation
Perhaps not, as some of those marketing people can work from home and I bet the transfer work for the discs are already done. I don't think the discs are manufactured in Cali, somebody correct me if I'm wrong. With that said, May's releases are definitely delayed.It could be a while before the next announcement.
Again, with all the important things going on in the world, this is a small matter. But still I pray that the closing will be as short as possible. P.S. Does anybody think the same thing will happen to the Kino Lorbo releases?Perhaps not, as some of those marketing people can work from home and I bet the transfer work for the discs are already done. I don't think the discs are manufactured in Cali, somebody correct me if I'm wrong. .
Volume 1 may have been three months ago, but they've been shut down for most of a month because of the pandemic (so who knows if they can do any restoration work currently). At this point, we don't know IF they will be releasing anything new for a while. I expect we'll still be getting re-releases of OOP WHV releases on both Blu-ray and DVD, and maybe, MAYBE some box sets of previously released stuff, but as far as any new-to-blu or new-to-DVD releases (well, apart from DVDs of titles that WAC debuted on Blu-ray without DVDs earlier this year, like Underwater!, Penelope, etc.), none of us know. After all, we've seen them announce stuff for the next month before, only to delay them a month (or, in the case of Dark Of The Sun, half a year), so it's not simply a case of having things ready a few months ahead.What will be released for May 2020 ? Still NO Announcements ? Tex Avery Vol.2 ? Vol.1 was 3 months ago. The Curse of Frankenstein ? ... Pretty Please ?
