Was hoping they would announce the next Columbia Noir set.
Got the first & still working my way through it (I'm addicted to The Lineup! Amazing film!), recommended to anyone with even a slight interest in the genre. 6 (admittedly mixed, but mostly very good) films on blu for £50, it's a steal! Plus the mountains of extras, very, VERY impressive!
Sorry, this turned into a review! Lol! 10/10

Just as a follow-up on this I was perusing the Hammer on Bluray FB page when someone mentioned there was no blu for Incense of the Damned to which Kim Newman (25 weeks ago btw) replied:

"Due in a Robert Hartford-Davis box set from Indicator next year."

He went on to say he'd recorded an audio commentary for The Black Torment for the set (previously a Screenbound release)

Therefore pretty sure Corruption will be the third.

Sorry if this is old news I've missed

EDIT: I wonder if they'll include The Fiend?

"Limited Edition Blu-ray (UK Blu-ray premiere)

After exploring the science-fiction and fantasy worlds of Alien, Blade Runner and Legend, famed British director Ridley Scott turned to modern-day New York for Someone to Watch Over Me, one of a number of adult-orientated erotic thrillers, including Fatal Attraction, Black Widow and Jagged Edge, to appear in the late eighties.

Tom Berenger (Platoon, Inception) plays a blue-collar NYPD detective assigned to protect a wealthy murder witness (Mimi Rogers, The Rapture). Soon, the relationship becomes an affair, threatening Berenger’s marriage to Lorraine Bracco (Goodfellas, The Sopranos), and the killer is still on the loose…

"***IRREVERSIBLE UPDATE***

As you may be aware, during the past month or so there have been some problems with the Amazon listing for our forthcoming IRREVERSIBLE Limited Edition. We're extremely pleased to announce that these issues have now been completely resolved and that orders can finally be placed on Amazon UK

Additionally, some news on the restoration: following conversations with Gaspar Noé and Studiocanal, we have confirmation that the feature presentation is not from a 4K restoration, as was previously announced, but rather a 2K one. The film was originally post-produced at 2K (meaning a true 4K version will never be possible). The restorations of both cuts of the film were prepared in 2019, with Noé himself overseeing all aspects.

Final specs for IRREVERSIBLE will be announced very soon, including a number of exciting new additions. We are extremely proud of the work that has gone into making this release as good as it possibly can be, and we can't wait for you to see the results."
