Del Toro's Cronos Criterion Blu-ray Coming Soon

Posted June 25, 2010 05:45 AM by Juan Calonge

CriterionYesterday, director Guillermo del Toro attended the 36th Annual Saturn Awards and gave a 20-minute impromptu interview backstage. After the interview finished, Del Toro revealed off-camera to Collider's Steve Weintraub that the Criterion Collection is going to release a Blu-ray of his feature debut, Cronos.

No edition details are available at this time, But Del Toro said that the BD will include a 15-minute documentary on his now-famous Man Cave.

The whole interview is highly recommended for any fans of this filmmaker, or of fantasy and horror cinema in general.

Guillermo del Toro Talks THE HOBBIT, HELLBOY 3, FRANKENSTEIN, AT THE MOUNTAINS OF MADNESS, SATURN AND THE END OF DAYS from ColliderVideos on Vimeo.

@dead: What makes this a "real movie"? Criterion has some pretty obscure titles in their collection, but are movies like Walkabout, M, Ride with the Devil, Stagecoach, etc. not "real movies"?

Nice! Del Toro had mentioned awhile back that Cronos was being prepared for blu, but I had no idea it was going to be a Criterion release. They've yet to let me down. This made my day.

Love this movie. I have been recommending it to friends for years. I'm glad to get a Criterion release of it on Blu-ray.

This was announced by Crit a while back in one of their newsletters. I'm still wondering if it will be this year....

Pretty much one of my favorite Del Toro films, up there with Pan's Labyrinth easily.

Excellent news, can't wait to get this title, Cronos, is a wonderful movie. Thank you Criterion!

Now what about releasing on Blu-ray "El espinazo del diablo" (The Devil's Backbone) and the Director's Cut of "Mimic". I am not sure about who owns the rights for "Mimic" if Disney or The Weinstein's, since it was released by Dimension Films, probably The Weinstein's (not a good thing, I guess). The rights for "The Devil's Backbone" belongs to Sony as far as I know.

Finally some more word on this! This is one of my most anticipated releases and one of my favourites. I sold my Lions Gate DVD a long time ago when it was going for silly money, expecting a re-release somewhere and it looks like it'll be worth the wait, especially as that release was pretty poor with it's HoH subs only.

A severely underrated film! An anticipated upgrade over my cropped-to-1.33:1 old laserdisc. Happy to see more unique arthouse outings like this, Summer Hours and Ride With the Devil making its way into the Criterion Blu catalogue.
