Warner to Release Malick, Hawks, and McLaglen Films in January

Posted October 23, 2013 05:33 AM by Webmaster

Warner 90th AnniversaryThe French branch of Warner Brothers has revealed that it plans to add three classic films to its Blu-ray catalog in January: Terrence Malick's Badlands (1973), Howard Hawks' The Big Sleep (1946), and Andrew V. McLaglen's Chisum (1970). All three releases will be available for purchase in France on January 8th.

Badlands

A garbage collector (Martin Sheen) and his impressionable girlfriend (Sissy Spacek) kill her father when he disapproves of their relationship, and embark on a homicidal trail of destruction across the Midwestern United States. Based on the true case of Starkweather and Fugate in the 1950s, Terrence Malick's directorial debut has influenced many subsequent writers and directors - notably Quentin Tarantino whose screenplays for True Romance and Natural Born Killers owe Badlands an obvious debt.

The Big Sleep

A classic 'noir' adaptation of Raymond Chandler's much-filmed novel. Private detective Philip Marlowe (Humphrey Bogart) agrees to rid a wealthy family of a blackmailer who is threatening the younger daughter, but the man is killed before he can act. Drawn nevertheless into the Sternwood family's problems (not least because of his attraction to the elder sister, played by Lauren Bacall), Marlowe uncovers drugs, murder and more blackmail.

Chisum

This late John Wayne Western casts 'The Duke' as real-life ranch owner John Chisum, battling to save his land from a ruthless developer (Forrest Tucker). Based on the events of New Mexico's 1878 Lincoln County War, which saw Chisum enlisting the help of Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid to protect what was rightfully his.

Was kind of surprised to see Badlands since it has been released by Criterion, but then I realized this is the French branch.

We need Badlands in the U.K, pronto!

I just hope they don't put forced subs on like most French releases. If all is good, i will import this one.

I hope we'll eventually see a Blu-ray of The Big Sleep with both versions of the film, like the DVD.

I got excited for a second then noticed this was for France. But since this is Warner they will probably make it over here eventually, The Big Sleep for sure. Another John Wayne only available in Europe to add to the list, for now at least. Strange that France of all places gets John Wayne blu rays that we don't.

Chisum looks very nice in hi-def on WB streaming service, the BD should look great.

These should be region free for anyone who can't wait for a Region A release, and I've never had forced French subs on a major studio title, only on some of the indie labels. The only one here I'd be interested in is the Big Sleep (already have Badlands from Criterion) but I'm curious if, like the DVD, it will have the two alternate versions of the film.

It's truly remarkable how behind the times WB is at releasing their own classic films like "The Big Sleep" on blu-ray in the U.S.

Even worse in the UK, we haven't even had Outland or Logan's Run yet, and we've only just had Little Shop Of Horrors and What Ever Happened To Baby Jane!

We need releases of Soylent Green and Westworld in the UK as well. I've just imported Logan's Run, fed up with waiting for it.

Someone on another forum mentioned there were over 50 Warner titles released in Australia that aren't yet available in the UK, why are we being shafted!!!!

Also Warner have been deleting UK titles, 2010, The Omega Man & THX-1138, what's up with that!!!!

Sure wish Chisum would be announced stateside. I never get tired of watching it. Probably one of my favorite John Wayne films.
