I don't believe any of the films have been released in HD before but judging by the only one I've seen (Shanghai Express) they should look stunning.

The Tree of Life coming to Criterion with 50 minutes of new footage.
And there was much rejoicing.

Any word on the why, how and who of this new cut?

A thing I just noticed about Criterion. For the first-time (I think) they have simultaneously released a blu-ray in Europe and the US. Scorsese' 'The Age of Innocence' (Both versions are region locked). I hope they do more of this.
so just recieved my wild at heart blu ray
sadly the deleted/extended scenes are the exact same quality
that was on the Lime Green box set years ago, they havent been cleaned up, color corrected
at all., its just standard dvd quality.
It looks like SPACE BATTLESHIP YAMATO 2199 is getting a North American release this July...

Now if only they would re-release the original series!

Yay! Francis Ford Coppola's little-seen 1988 Lucasfilm production 'Tucker: The Man and His Dream' is coming to HD/Blu-Ray for the first time in August. I imported the NTSC DVD years ago and it's one of his best films IMO. Apparently it will include all supplements from that release plus new deleted scenes. Might only be a Region A release?

I might get my rare OOP DVD onto ebay while the getting is good Wink .

39 Ingmar Bergman films in one "home film festival" blu-ray boxset from Criterion in November. $240 is only $6 a film (when they might retail individually for $20-30) but it's still a lot. Not sure I could justify that one to my wallet sadly.

Also Kino Lorber are finally releasing the Gene Hackman/Danny Glover movie 'BAT 21' on blu-ray for the first time in September. This Vietnam movie was on hard rotation in my VHS player back in the day but I've been waiting for a blu-ray release for years to reacquaint myself with it.

I don't know if this counts, being in the "Movies" section, but this thread seemed the most appropriate place to post.

Fans have been asking for a blu ray release of Avatar: The Last Airbender for years - not just to see it in HD, but also because the DVD's looked awful even for SD. I pretty much gave up hope when it was stated that the creators had no intention of releasing it in HD. 

I heard there was a digital only HD release some time ago, but it wasn't meant to be much different from the DVD. This is thankfully a different transfer.

The blu-ray came out last month, but I've only just stumbled across it. I've also had fanedit ideas for it for a while, so I'm glad I delayed moving forward with them. 

Apparently the US and UK versions are exactly the same (discs are region free) with the exception of packaging. The US version apparently has a thinner case, as well as alternate inner art:

From what I've read, bonus features are carried over from the DVD. Audio is lossless, but is only available in stereo. Picture apparently isn't perfect, but is still a massive step up from the DVD.

I'd never have thought this lost gem would land 4K restoration and Blu-ray.

it'll look amazing!
