Fingers crossed Kino. Not a fan of shout at moment.
It's between Kino and one of two other labels. A lot of people are assuming that one of those labels is Shout!, which is probably a strong assumption, but I don't think either label has been confirmed, as of yet.
Criterion is the third label and I can guarantee they're not interested in Superstition. Other than Shout I can't think of any other indy label with pockets deep enough to license from SC. I suppose Lionsgate could've chosen to renew their license but, let's be honest, they're only interested in padding their portfolio to look good to Wall Street. It's a long shot but maybe Vinegar Syndrome has built enough clout (and financial standing) to enable them to make deals with larger studios. Needless to say, that would be a BIG deal.
I think Arrow has a stronger chance than Vinegar Syndrome. I could also see MVD as a possibility.
I didn't factor Arrow - but wouldn't any Studiocanal titles they license be locked to Region B being that Arrow is based in the UK? Not that there's a problem for those of us with region-free players. Don't know about MVD. They're still wet behind the ears. I think of them as only slightly better than Mill Creek.
Arrow is bi-continental, so it would depend on whether they're licensing for the UK and/or North America.
Honestly, anybody not named Shout! Factory is probably a dark horse, but companies can always surprise us. Mill Creek worked out distribution licenses with Sony and Disney before Shout! Factory and Kino, respectively.

Nice, A few more Anchor Bay dvd's I can retire
Holy shit, Lets Kill Uncle! That’s one of Castle’s most obscure. I caught it on TCM sometime in the last decade but I don’t know if it’s ever aired again. I’ve actually worked with Pat Cardi some over the years. Very nice guy.
Yes to all of this
Coming Soon on DVD and Blu-ray!
Link (1986) Starring Elisabeth Shue and Terence Stamp - Cinematography by Mike Molloy (The Hit) - Music by Jerry Goldsmith (The Omen) - Produced and Directed by Richard Franklin (Patrick, Road Games, Psycho II, F/X 2).
LINK is awesome. I love the buildup to the exciting final showdown. Great camera work, too.
Good movie. I have the original DVD.
Have to say that ever since they got Rawhead Rex a couple years back, Kino’s acquisitions of long-requested new to Blu-ray titles is second to none. Their two Kolchak releases were some of the best discs of last year and I can’t wait to pick up Link.
Sorry, but Link sucks! (My personal opinion.)
Posted by KinoLorberInsider on the blu-ray.com forums:
I'm so down for this. Their first UHD release. And depending on how well this and another yet-unannounced UHD title that they have planned for the summer sells, they're gonna release Sergio Leone's Dollars Triogy in the fall.
I was not expecting that to happen by Kino, let alone come to 4K!
FYI, a DVD Edition will also be available:
