David Cronenberg's 'Naked Lunch' -- the film 'The Simpsons' mocked when Bart and his friends snuck into it and Nelson Muntz came out saying "I can think of at least two things wrong with that title" -- is getting the Criterion Collection Blu-ray treatment this April, alongside cult classic 'Repo Man' and more.
The Criterion Collection is ending the year with one of the best months of new announcements in quite some time. For March, we're getting two Blu-ray upgrades, and four new releases of titles by Terrence Malick, Fritz Lang, Charlie Chaplin and Robert Bresson. If you love movies, there's going to be a couple here to excite you.
Criterion rumored a release of Romany Polanski's 1968 classic 'Rosemary's Baby' earlier this year, so it's great to know it's hitting the collection just before Halloween. Also in the mix, a Blu-ray upgrade for Wong Kar-Wai's 'In the Mood for Love' and more.
Because David Fincher's 'The Game' was made for the long-defunct Polygram Filmed Entertainment, its home video rights have been rocky. The studio released it on DVD at the format's inception, while Universal released the film on HD-DVD, but has yet to release a Blu-ray. Criterion - who put the film out on Laserdisc - has now set the film for a DVD and Blu-ray release. That and more are coming from the boutique company in September.
