JUDEX BLU

New Release: Judex (1916) coming to Blu-ray! Spy Vibers who love the thriller serials of Louis Feuillade like Fantomas and Les Vampires will be psyched to hear that Gaumont is giving Judex the hi-res treatment at last! Feuillade’s 1916 project focussed on a mysterious caped avenger, a master of disguise, who operated from a secret lair with an array of cool gadgets a la Bruce Wayne. His name: Judex! From what I can glean from the Gaumont website, the new Blu-ray edition will include English subtitles (I hope that's right!) and a 17-min featurette. Viewers will probably need an all-region or region B player. Releasing on December 8th on Blu-ray and DVD. More info (and restoration demo video) at Gaumont. You can also order via Amazon France. Gaumont is also releasing a Blu-ray and DVD restoration of Feuillade's crime/espionage serial, Tih-Minh (1918), with subtitles and a 15-min featurette (Amazon). I haven't seen any mention about these transfers being distributed in other regions yet, but I would assume Kino Lorber might handle distribution in the States at some point, as they have the other serials in their catalog. In the meantime, fans can order from Amazon or Gaumont. Great news! I sure wish my late-friend, Richard Sala, could be here for this. I know he would have enjoyed seeing these classics get the attention they deserve. I can't wait to see them. Cover art below. Enjoy!

NO TIME TO DIE BLU

New release: The new James Bond film, No Time to Die, will be released on Blu-ray in December. So far it looks like set options in the US will include a Blu-ray/DVD, 4K Blu-ray, and a deluxe 4K/Blu-ray box set with cards and die-cast Aston Martin. Best Buy and Target will also have their own exclusives, steelbook, etc. Features include a Dolby Atmos track, 45-min doc about Daniel Craig's 007 years, and docs about design, locations, action, and more! Details at Blu-ray. Spy Vibers around the world can select their area in the upper-right corner of the site to see region-specific info. I have not ventured again into public theaters, so I look forward to finally seeing it! In other news, I have been working hard on the upcoming Spy Vibe book. Still so much to do, but we're hoping we can announce more details soon.
