Wild at Heart seems more like an Arrow Video film than Academy.

Could well be the case but Lynch straddles Cult and artfilm.

I wouldn't have put Children of Men down as Academy either.

My initial thought was films featuring Snake Plissken, but since Escape from New York would be very unlikely in the light of the new and upcoming Blu-ray and 4K UHD releases and Escape from L.A. isn't exactly the most highly regarded or loved of films, Wild at Heart (and hopefully more David Lynch films after that) makes perfect sense for an Arrow Video or Arrow Academy release.

NEW UK TITLE: Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice (Blu-ray)

A classic comedy that hilariously probes the complicated relationship dynamics of the sexually liberated 1960s.

Release date: 10th December

CONSIDER THE POSSIBILITIES...

"From the hugely talented actor, writer and director Paul Mazursky (The Tempest, Harry and Tonto) comes Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice, a classic comedy that hilariously probes the complicated relationship dynamics of the sexually liberated 1960s.

Mazursky's sharp satire tells of Bob (Columbo regular Robert Culp) and Carol (Natalie Wood: West Side Story, Brainstorm), an affluent and hip Californian couple who return from a free-thinking, free-love retreat, intent on having an open relationship. The more conservative Ted (Elliot Gould: MASH, The Long Goodbye) and Alice (Dyan Cannon, Heaven Can Wait) enjoy hearing about their friends’ amorous adventures, but the cat is set amongst the pigeons when they are invited to join-in... in bed!

A film that truly evokes the spirit of its age, Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice was a huge hit with audiences and critics alike upon its original theatrical release. Benefitting from superb ensemble acting from its main players and a sublime score courtesy of Quincy Jones, it is no wonder that Mazursky’s film was nominated for four Academy Awards.

SPECIAL EDITION CONTENTS:

• New restoration from original film elements by Sony Pictures
• High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) presentation
• Uncompressed Mono 1.0 PCM audio soundtrack
• Optional English subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing
• Audio commentary by director/co-writer Paul Mazursky, actors Robert Culp, Elliott Gould, and Dyan Cannon
• New Audio commentary by the film scholar Adrian Martin
• Bob & Natalie & Elliot & Dyan... & Paul, a new video essay exploring the film’s themes by filmmaker and critic David Cairns
• Tales of Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice, an archival interview with Paul Mazursky revisiting the film’s production and release
• Reversible sleeve featuring original and newly commissioned artwork by Matthew Griffin

FIRST PRESSING ONLY: Illustrated collector's booklet featuring new writing on the film by author Michael Atkinson and original reviews"

NEW UK/US/CA TITLE: The Serpent's Egg (Blu-ray)

One of Bergman’s darkest – and most unlikely – films, The Serpent’s Egg is a hypnotic, Kafkaesque tale of paranoia in a poisoned city.

Release dates: 3 December (UK), 4th December (US, CAN)

HOW DO YOU MEASURE YOUR OWN SANITY IN A WORLD GONE MAD?

"In 1977, legendary Swedish filmmaker Ingmar Bergman (The Seventh Seal, Persona) teamed up with the equally legendary Italian producer Dino De Laurentiis (La strada, Danger: Diabolik) for what would be the director’s one and only Hollywood feature.

Berlin, 1923. Out-of-work circus performer Abel Rosenberg (David Carradine, Bound in Glory, Kill Bill) is living in poverty. When his brother commits suicide, he moves into the apartment of his cabaret singer sister-in-law (Liv Ullmann, The Emigrants, Scenes from a Marriage), but the pair soon attract the attentions of both the police and a professor with a terrifying area of research when they start to make enquiries about his mysterious death.

One of Bergman’s darkest – and most unlikely – films, The Serpent’s Egg is a hypnotic, Kafkaesque tale of paranoia in a poisoned city.

• High Definition Blu-ray (1080p) presentation
• Original English mono audio (uncompressed LPCM)
• Optional English subtitles for the deaf and hard-of-hearing
• Audio Commentary by actor David Carradine
• Bergman’s Egg – a newly filmed appreciation by critic and author Barry Forshaw
• Away From Home, archival featurette including interviews with David Carradine and Liv Ullman
• German Expressionism, archival interview with Author Marc Gervais
• Stills gallery
• Theatrical trailer
• Reversible sleeve featuring two artwork choices

FIRST PRESSING ONLY: Illustrated collector's booklet featuring new writing on the film by author Geoffrey Macnab"

I’ll be getting both. The Serpent’s Egg hasn’t got a great reputation, but I like it.

i'm semi interested in The Serpent's Egg. The kafkaesque description makes it sound strange and not by any means a conventional thriller. has anyone seen it and able to describe the tone and basic plot so forth?

Just be thankful it's not Snakes on a Plane!
