Snowden, Hitchcock/Truffaut, Lifeboat, Ben-Hur (2016) & Takashi Miike’s Black Society Trilogy https://t.co/pEsKDsfHQa
First of all, my apologies for missing last week’s Burnt Offerings. The column got swallowed up by the chaos that is San Diego Comic-Con. At this point, the event has turned into a giant black hole centered smack dab in the middle of July that consumes everything else in its wake.
Of course, I was down there to participate in The Bits’ annual Blu-ray Producers panel and, as usual, it was a fine discussion with some of the sharpest talents in the industry. Although they weren’t there as panelists, the team from Warner Archive was nice enough to attend in the audience and they confirmed that Peter Weir’s Fearless will indeed be one of their next Blu-ray titles. The movie features one of Jeff Bridges’ very best performances and if you like Bridges as much as we do, you know that’s high praise indeed. Keep your eyes peeled for an official announcement of this highly-anticipated title soon.
