Blu-ray.com lists Romero's Night of the Living Dead (1968) coming from Mill Creek.

Could this be a Let's-Cash-in-on-Romero's-Death Edition, which, due to the public domain status, is probably being released in spite of and in addition to the rumored forthcoming Criterion edition?

Its a terribly smart business decision from Mill Creek. About everyone knows of the still forthcoming Criterion edition now, but then it gets delayed, so they have the October / idiot market wrapped up nicely.

In case anyone wanted to know what kind of company Mill Creek was, here's their tribute to Romero when he died:

Oh good lord, you know you’ve hit the bottom of the barrel when you’re releasing Reb Brown movies.

With an exclusive Reb Brown commentary no less!

(I have never seen this movie but I am in the bag day 1 for all Italian postapocalyptic trash.)

You mean *now* they hit bottom? =D (This is the same company where their massive collection of sci-fi films includes one of the bafflingly worst films ever [R.O.T.O.R.])

I've not seen it but according to one of the commentators on one of the volumes of that 42nd Street Forever trailer compilation set this film apparently inspired the ultimate pithy negative review: "Up Yors!"

Is this the theatrical version, or the four part television mini-series version that has only been previously shown in Italy?

Seeing as Sony's UK DVD of Age of Consent now appears to be OOP, I wonder if it is forthcoming from Indicator? This seems to be the pattern, and other Mill Creek Sony releases have done the same (namely some of Sony's Hammer titles).

Eyes Of Laura Mars has a nice UK release from Indicator. Region-free, even, and with some good extras.

And if those are too high brow for you, don't worry, they're also releasing Jury Duty! And Opportunity Knocks, Excess Baggage, and Double Team-- finally, a Blu-ray lineup fitting of a Tuesday afternoon of HBO2 programming circa 1999

Worth noting that Opportunity Knocks is licensed from Universal. They had released The Rundown (2003) and Barb Wire in February from Universal licensing, but both had been on Blu-ray before, while Opportunity Knocks is new to Blu-ray. While unlikely, perhaps this deal with Universal will ultimately result in a worthwhile catalog title coming to BD for the first time.

Unfortunately any Universal title I can think of wanting on Blu is unlikely to fit the perimeters of Mill Creek’s usual post-70s output. Still, who knows anymore, so maybe

Three more June double features:

Brainscan (1994) / Mindwarp (1992) - via Sony
Stepmom (1998) / The Deep End of the Ocean (1999) - via Sony
The Trigger Effect (1996) / Body Count (1998) - via Universal

Brainscan has a Scream Factory release that is barely 7 months old, while the Twilight Time 2013 release of Mindwarp is OOP.

Sounds pretty impressive for a Mill Creek release. And the art is very nice.

August titles:

The New Kids (1985) - via Sony
Roxanne (1987) - via Sony (Sony's 2009 release is OOP)
True Believer (1989) - via Sony
The Ugly American (1963) - via Universal
White Line Fever (1975) - via Sony (Previously releases as a Triple Feature with Blind Fury (1989) and Silent Rage (1982); Silent Rage got its own individual reissue recently, so Blind Fury's is probably around the corner)
