According to the French media publication Ecran total, Studio Canal will release its third wave of Blu-ray titles in early 2010, which includes some acclaimed movies by major filmmakers: 'Mulholland Drive' (David Lynch, 2001), 'Peeping Tom' (Michael Powell, 1960), 'That Obscure Object of Desire' (Luis Bu˝uel, 1977), and 'Grand Illusion' (Jean Renoir, 1937).
Going from recent history with previous Studio Canal titles, most of these will be released in the UK by Optimum Home Entertainment around the same time, and possibly even in the US by Lionsgate a few months later.
Studio Canal will also release in France 'The Third Man', whose Blu-ray edition by the Criterion Collection was recently discontinued.
Mulholland Drive was a weird one that's for sure, it's one of those "WTF" movies. Would like to see it again. Always heard about Peeping Tom, but never saw it. Seeing it for the first time on blu will be a treat.
Wow, I didn't realize Mulholland Drive was under Studio Canal but should be interesting to see a Lynch movie in HD. Are there any Lynch movies already available on HD in the US? (Would like to get a copy of Dune from France as well).
Even Bunuel would be iinteresting to see what they do to clean up prints on older films like Una Mujer Sin Amor, or better yet, L'Age d'Or.
I really hope that Studio Canal does a good work with Mulholland Drive. The Pan Vision release was not good on any levels.
There was 0 extras and the picture (as Pan Vision said them self) was from the DVD release. DVD on BD disc.
"Mulholland Drive" will most likely be the exact same HD DVD version which was released by StudioCanal in France.
the recent Nordic release is said to be much worse, so even though people thought the HD DVD could be a lot better, at least we know the blu-ray will be better than the Scandinavian versions.
