One of the most prestigious honors a film can receive is to be added to the Criterion Collection, which solidifies a movie's status as an important piece of cinema. At long last the honor has been bestowed upon David Lynch's Eraserhead, and we've got all the release details on tap for ya today!
Ever since it was announced that the original 1954 version of Godzilla is being released onto Criterion Blu-ray and DVD, we've been salivating at the possibilities. And now ... we have all of the details for you right here!
You see now, news like this? You cannot imagine how happy it makes us to share it with you. For years the Criterion Collection has been the gold standard in home video releases. The true mark of excellence. Now not only is Godzilla getting the royal Criterion treatment, but a rare print has been discovered that will be the icing on the cake!
Oh, how we love when a new Criterion Collection Blu-ray release comes our way. Simply put, these discs are the gold standard in home video releases, and two true classics are set to make their debut this October. First on October 18th we'll see Kaneto Shindo's Kuroneko. Synopsis
Mark December 7th down on your calendars, kids! That's the date that the long talked about Criterion Collection Blu-ray/DVD release of Guillermo del Toro's classic tale Cronos is finally coming home in grand fashion! Talk about a holiday miracle! Check out the specs and artwork below! DIRECTOR-APPROVED SPECIAL EDITION:
Remember that cruel April Fool's Day joke from last April? You know, the one about a director's cut of Mimic coming to DVD? Bingo. I'll never forget the confusion shown by Andrew Kasch when it seemed to be a prank, as he said he watched as people worked on it. Relax Andrew ... your sanity is saved. It's coming all right, along with Cronos, courtesy of Criterion.
It was reported over at Twitch Film that fans of Guillermo del Toro’s earlier films will have something to relish in the very near future.
