    I think Indicator is running out of SONY titles to acquire - they've confirmed to be releasing Ishtar. Bound to happen sooner or later - Sony's library isn't as vast as Warner's or MGM's. They've pretty much exhausted all of the obscure Columbia Westerns and dramas they were interested in so they're digging around at the bottom of the well. Someone should tell Indicator there are other studios out there :)

    By the way, I hate referring to Columbia Pictures as SONY Pictures.

    Indicator have released films licensed from studios other than Sony. The "bulk" of their catalog of releases are indeed licensed from Sony... but they've had some titles licensed from StudioCanal, Universal, Paramount, 20th Century Fox, and even some smaller labels like Euro London and Screenbound.

    Not much in the way of new Horror, but The Day of the Dolphin and Invincible are both excellent films. The Big Fix, I really can't even remember if I've ever seen before. Ishtar? Well... it's Ishtar.

    OUR JULY EDITIONS


    The offbeat and the oddball are the focus for INDICATOR this July, with an idiosyncratic quartet of films, all released on UK Blu-ray for the first time.

    On 19 July, we present Mike Nichols’ one-of-a-kind THE DAY OF THE DOLPHIN. Filmed in the Bahamas, this science-fiction thriller stars George C Scott (Hardcore) as a scientist teaching dolphins to speak who becomes embroiled in a shadowy plot to assassinate the US President.

    Also released on 19 July is Jeremy Paul Kagan’s THE BIG FIX. Produced by and starring Richard Dreyfuss, following his successes in Close Encounters of the Third Kind and The Goodbye Girl, this quirky comedy-thriller tracks the exploits of a sixties’ radical-turned-private eye as he investigates a case of election interference.

    19 July provides more comedy in the shape of Elaine May’s ISHTAR. In a nod to the Bob Hope and Bing Crosby Road to… movies, Warren Beatty (Mickey One) and Dustin Hoffman (Straw Dogs) star as brilliantly awful songwriters who find themselves mixed up in Cold War shenanigans whilst in Morocco. Much maligned for decades, this wonderful film is now increasingly, and rightfully, recognised as one of the unsung greats of eighties' American cinema.

    Finally on 19 July, celebrated director Werner Herzog’s INVINCIBLE arrives in a new 2K restoration. Upon its original release in 2001, this was the great German filmmaker’s first fictional work in a decade. Set during the rise of Nazism, this fictionalised account of the life of Jewish strongman Zishe Breitbart stars Tim Roth (Meantime) and Udo Kier (Exposé).

    Mastered from the finest available materials, each of these essential releases contains expertly encoded presentations, a range of new and archival extra features, English subtitles for the deaf and hard-of-hearing, and booklets with new essays, historical articles, contemporary reviews, and film credits.

    July’s releases are available to pre-order individually or in a time-limited bundle offer with a 10% discount. If you wish to take advantage of the offer, just add all of the new-release Limited Editions to your cart and enter the code BUNDLE at the checkout. Offer runs until the next new-release announcement.

    Kino dumped Day of the Dolphin onto Blu-ray without much fanfare but here is Indicator giving it the royal treatment. I always go for the royal treatment editions even if the film itself is mediocre - they look nicer on the shelves :)

    OUR AUGUST EDITIONS

    On 16 August, INDICATOR presents an eclectic mix of films, each featuring some of the world’s most celebrated and acclaimed acting talent.

    CORRUPTION finds the legendary Peter Cushing playing a murderous, high-class plastic surgeon in a grim updating of Eyes Without a Face. Directed by Robert Hartford-Davis (The Fiend, The Black Torment), and co-starring Sue Lloyd (The Ipcress File), Corruption pushed the envelope of gore in its era and is presented on home video for the first time in the UK, alongside a wealth of fascinating extras.

    THE PEOPLE NEXT DOOR stars Eli Wallach (Winter Kills) and Julie Harris (The Haunting) in an unflinching portrayal of a New York family ripped apart by drug abuse. Forcefully directed by David Greene (I Start Counting, Gray Lady Down), and beautifully shot by Gordon Willis (Little Murders, The Godfather), this gripping melodrama finally gets its long-overdue UK Blu-ray premiere.

    Based on the best-selling 1973 novel of the same name by William Brashler, THE BINGO LONG TRAVELING ALL-STARS & MOTOR KINGS is set amid the segregated African American baseball league of the 1930s. Directed by John Badham (Dracula), this feel-good comedy boasts a stellar cast, including a pre-Star Wars pairing of Billy Dee Williams and James Earl Jones, and comedy legend Richard Pryor (Blue Collar).

    The definitive 1980s erotic thriller, JAGGED EDGE stars Jeff Bridges (Fat City) as a newspaper publisher accused of murdering his wife, and Glenn Close (Fatal Attraction) as the attorney with whom he has an affair. Richard Marquand’s film features an ingenious script from Joe Eszterhas (Basic Instinct), and excellent supporting performances from Robert Loggia (The Garment Jungle, Scarface) and Peter Coyote (Bitter Moon).

    Mastered from the finest available materials, each of these essential releases contains expertly encoded presentations, a range of new and archival extra features, English subtitles for the deaf and hard-of-hearing, and booklets with new essays, historical articles, contemporary reviews, and film credits.

    August’s releases are available to pre-order individually or in a time-limited bundle offer with a 10% discount. If you wish to take advantage of the offer, just add all of the new-release Limited Editions to your cart and enter the code BUNDLE at the checkout. Offer runs until the next new-release announcement.

    They are also releasing all the Norman J Warren stuff separately. Looking forward to that. I will get Inseminoid and maybe Satan's Slave, I've already go Prey and not a fan of the other 2, Bloody New Year being one of the worst movies I've seen!

    Ishtar is an underrated film. I wouldn’t buy it, but it still isn’t nearly as bad as the hype purports it to be. I liked it well enough.

    I own the US Blu-ray which I got dirt cheap ... but I mean, it's not something I'd buy a nice Indicator edition of.

    I received the Hammer Volume Six: Night Shadows (along with 4 others) from them earlier today, and you gotta love the way they did the cases on this one.

    It uses a "double case" (same Scanavo HD Keepcase type they always use) for each of the four releases in the box, but the "2nd disc" holder in all 4 cases is just a paper coaster insert with a swirling note about a shortage of single-disc cases and no extra discs are missing. They just didn't want to delay the set due to the shortage.

    Would Shout Factory have done that? LOL, no... they just gave us cheap cut-out eco cases instead. o_O

    I just bought Revenge of Frankenstein through an independent seller on amazon uk. I would have preferred to buy direct from Powerhouse during a sale, but at a price of $19.89 shipping included I can live with that. It’s certainly less than what I’d be paying if this title had it been released by Scream Factory in the states.

    Some great deals there, as Indicator stuff normally doesn't go that cheap. I spend 70 quid and got free postage and packaging.
