I believe that Lola is a StudioCanal title. So it probably isn't that.

Good guess. I reckon you're right.

Would also be consistent with Columbia titles released via the Academy line over the past year - Pickup Alley, Crime and Punishment, The Running Man, Nightfall, The Prisoner, My Name is Julia Ross, So Dark the Night, Born Yesterday, Bob and Carol and Ted and Alice, Gas Food Lodging. And as with the von Sternberg, Tourneur, Lewis and Mazursky titles, I'm slightly surprised Indicator didn't get this one.

I like the irony of their tweet referring to "cryptic clues" for The Limits of Control when Model Shop may have been the only Academy clue anyone actually guessed correctly.

More details :

The Oldboy LE got turned into the Vengeance Trilogy LE. This is what we who pre-ordered the original Oldboy limited edition will get.

This is the Vengeance Trilogy non-LE edition, ie the LE version minus the special packaging "featuring newly commissioned artwork by Matt Ryan Tobin", the 100-page hardbound book featuring new writing by Simon Abrams, Kat Ellinger, and archival articles and the double-sided fold-out poster. I however hope the LE packaging is relatively normal-sized.

I do wonder however, considering the LE just started shipping, why Arrow didn't put this in January, because some will probably cancel their LE to get the regular set.

Thank you for the clarification. I suppose I got confused due to how I'm used to only LEs getting large boxes.

It does look like this non-LE of the trilogy will just be the 3 movies in a big outer case, but nothing fancy at all that a LE. But yeah, with all the changes and delays, I understand it can become confusing at some point.

Exorcist III is such a strange beast to me. When it works, it really works. But when it doesn't it really, really drags down the whole production. There's a particular sequence inside the hospital involving a bedsheet that's one of the great horror scenes.

I think what happened was they announced Oldboy LE with the same extras from the Plain Archive release, plus their own, but then it turned out they didn't have rights to those (as they might have been promised by whoever they were licensing from; must have been some miscommunication somewhere along the way). So rather than backtrack on the initial release by either cancelling or rescheduling it, they licensed the other two films in the trilogy and added them to the Oldboy LE - with the Oldboy title intact, since that film is what was advertised (and much of the literature, and indeed the artwork, would have already been produced for this release).

Then, seeing that it sold so well, they have planned a standard reissue of the three films for December, but this time had the chance to produce fresh artwork to acknowledge the films as a trilogy rather than it be an Oldboy-centric package. So basically, the discs are going to be the same but each have different artwork, and the Oldboy LE has a thick booklet and poster added (and at this time of writing, is even £4-5 cheaper than getting The Vengeance Trilogy).

By the way, David Mackenzie reportedly encoded the discs so nothing to worry about on that front!

Another postcard announcement: Meliés' Le Voyage dans la Lune and the Bromberg doc about its restoration. Presumably it will also include the rest of the shorts on the Flicker Alley release?

Feels like it really should be an Academy release, no? Weird it’s included in Oldboy

I don't think postcards are only included in their respective branch's releases.
By the way, what's on the other side of these cards ? They usually have a patchwork of smaller artworks.

Tenia, I believe the smaller posters are not on this new batch of postcards.

Speaking of them, The Game is apparently the latest postcard found in the Oldboy limited edition.

Thanks for the answer. I thought I read something like this, but couldn't find the info again.

Recent postcards confirming upcoming titles:

The Game
Inglourious Basterds
The Wolf of Wall Street
Le voyage dans la Lune (presumably Arrow Academy)
The Exorcist III (since announced)
Southland Tales
Dream Demon
White Fire
The Passion of Darkly Noon (US-only)

Other titles confirmed by BBFC submissions:

The Last of the Mohicans
True Romance
Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves
Ace Ventura: Pet Detective / Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls (double bill?)

So it seems a lot of the recent 'big' titles are generally from Universal or Morgan Creek. I therefore wouldn't be surprised to see them announce things like Carlito's Way, The Blues Brothers, Casino, Traffic, Out of Sight, The Breakfast Club, Cape Fear, The Frighteners, Clockers, Miami Vice, Uncle Buck and probably an Edgar Wright box set (or even better, a Coen Brothers one; Barton Fink, The Hudsucker Proxy, The Man Who Wasn't There). At this rate too I'd even wonder if they were allowed some Hitchcock (Vertigo? Psycho?) or Spielberg (Duel!), but they might be harder to crack since they're big Universal properties; also unsure if Scarface would be a possibility due to the UHD being released (including the original film in the expensive collector's set).

I got a postcard for some Russian movie from 2018 called Why Don't You Just Die in my copy of The Prey.
