Just wait until next month when they tease with an Arrow because that's the company releasing the films.

Maybe the Statue of Liberty clue related to both films, as Hold Back the Dawn is about emigration to the US?

Also C&P is a famous American novel and Peter Lorre was a gift to our country from France

Arrow UK sent me an email just now informing me that I'll be refunded for Ludwig which I ordered during the sale - looks like this one has gone OOP

Interesting that Arrow having been upgrading old Barrel Entertainment properties to Blu ray.

Never seen Darkness.

Kevin Lambert confirms on the most recent Arrow Video podcast that Jodorowsky has signed off on the 4K restorations of Fando y Lis, El Topo, and The Holy Mountain. All extras from the ABKCO releases will be carried forward, and new interviews with Jodorowsky and 'cast and crew' have been filmed. Sounds like it will be announced soon-ish.

Exciting news. It's a shame they don't have Santa Sangre as well

Thankfully Severin are currently giving that one a 4K restoration from the OCN, so it is also being seen to.

It would have been nice to see Arrow rescue Tusk though - if not them (and it looks like they're not going to), then I suspect it will never ever get a restoration and release.

Hint is "7 1/2". Obviously that looks like Fellini, but not sure what Fellini's 7.5th film would be. La dolce vita? La dolce vita would technically be number seven, which would encompass 7.5.

The clues are never what they seem to be. Last month was the Statue of Liberty for a Columbia Pictures release. Strange. So who knows what this means.

Completely random guess : Lav Diaz' Melancholia is 7.5 hour long.
EDIT : blu-ray.com's members guess is Being John Malkovich.

My first instinct was the movie that Fellini made directly before 8 1/2, but.

I doubt it's La Dolce Vita since that already got a release in the U.K from the 4K source (unless it's gone OOP).

Technically, yes:

½ Variety Lights
1½ The White Sheik
2½ I vitelloni
3 Agenzia matrimoniale
4 La strada
5 Il bidone
6 Nights of Cabiria
7 La dolce vita
7½ Le tentazioni del dottor Antonio
8½ 8½

Malkovich does make a lot of sense though, much more than Fellini

And it is the 20th anniversary of Malkovich, so I'm pretty sure its that.

I'm up for Being John Malkovich since the studio disc is pretty lacklustre - but I'd also love a UK Blu-ray for my favourite Kaufman/Jonze collaboration, Adaptation. I'm sure that's possible through Arrow's Sony deal, and far more their wheelhouse since it seems a little too modern/mainstream for MoC or Indicator. Fingers are crossed for both! :)
