This morning, Criterion announced they are losing the rights to a number of StudioCanal films. According to the email, at the end of March over 20 films will no longer be offered on DVD or Blu-ray (if available). The rights are going to Lionsgate, so they’ll be on DVD in the future, just not on the Criterion label. Therefore, if you’re a Criterion collector, or just someone that wants to own a great edition of these films, you might want to buy them ASAP or you’ll have to pay a collector price.
But the best part of the email is Criterion saying, “we will be offering these titles at an additional $5 off on our website.” Hit the jump for the list of movies and more info:
