Yes, from what I read they're going to be releasing a LOT of catalogue releases next year, they have 14 Hammer titles from Sony lined up for release (don't know the films yet), & quite a few other Sony catalogue films. I was fearing that catalogue would start to dry-up, but thanks to a lot of small companies in Europe & America things are looking good for up old movie lovers (of old movies!).

British label Indicator/Powerhouse Films will add three new titles to its Blu-ray catalog in April: Orson Welles' The Lady From Shanghai, Paul Schrader's Hardcore, and Blake Edwards' Experiment in Terror.

The Lady from Shanghai

Synopsis: Baffling murders, fascinating plot twists and remarkable camera work all contribute to this spellbinding, time-honored film noir written and directed by and starring Orson Welles. Hired to work on a yacht belonging to the disabled husband of femme fatale Rita Hayworth, Welles plays an innocent man drawn into a dangerous web of intrigue and murder.

The subject of great controversy and scandal upon its initial release, The Lady From Shanghai shocked 1948 audiences by presenting Hayworth with her flaming red hair cut short and dyed champagne blonde. Fifty years later, The Lady From Shanghai is considered vintage Welles, his famous hall of mirrors climax hailed as one of the greatest scenes in cinematic history.

The Border

Synopsis: Jack Nicholson (The Last Detail, Wolf) gives one of his finest and most subtle performances as a hard-working but deeply disillusioned Mexican border-guard in this tough thriller from renowned British filmmaker Tony Richardson (Look Back in Anger, A Taste of Honey).

High Definition remaster
Original mono audio
Audio Commentary with critic and film historian Nick Pinkerton

The Fortune

Synopsis: This high-concept, big-budget screwball comedy directed by Mike Nichols (The Graduate, Wolf) stars Warren Beatty (Mickey One, Bonnie and Clyde) as a slick con man and Jack Nicholson (One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, The Border) as his dim-witted sidekick trying to get their hands on the fortune of a hapless young heiress played by Stockard Channing (Grease, The West Wing). A commercial failure on its initial release, this buoyant and beautifully staged madcap comedy is ripe for rediscovery and reappraisal.

Blue Collar

Synopsis: After writing Taxi Driver for Martin Scorsese, Paul Schrader made his directorial debut with this profane and profound drama about life on the factory floor of a Detroit car manufacturing plant. With explosive performances from the great Richard Pryor (Silver Streak, Stir Crazy), Harvey Keitel (The Border, Pulp Fiction) and Yaphet Kotto (Live and Let Die, Alien), Blue Collar presents one of the most authentic portraits of working-class life in all American cinema, and is one of the finest films of the 1970s.

Charley Varrick

Synopsis: Charley Varrick (Walter Matthau) is a former stunt-pilot who makes his living robbing small banks in the American Southwest. His latest heist sees him unwittingly steal from the local mafia, setting a psychotic hit-man on his trail and unleashing a maelstrom of violence and destruction. Directed by the great Don Siegel (Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Dirty Harry), Charley Varrick is one of the best thrillers of the 70s: action-packed, memorably lurid and gleefully unsentimental Special Features and Technical Specs:
High Definition remaster
