Criterion to Offer Blu-Ray Selections

The Criterion Collection has sent out an email newsletter (via Video Watchdog) announcing their rollout of high-definition discs for selected titles, starting with 13 films, including Francois Truffaut’s The 400 Blows, Wong Kar-Wai’s Chungking Express, and Wes Anderson’s (aforementioned) Bottle Rocket. Says Criterion, the new editions to be released in October “will feature glorious high-definition picture and sound, all the supplemental content of the DVD releases, and they will be priced to match our standard-def editions.”

Other titles to be released in this first wave of Blu-Ray: The Third Man, The Man Who Fell to Earth, The Last Emperor, El Norte, Gimme Shelter, The Complete Monterey Pop, Contempt, Walkabout, For All Mankind, The Wages of Fear. (via GreenCine Daily)
