Criterion announces its first BluRay offerings

The Criterion Collection has announced the titles for the influential label’s first BluRay offerings in its newsletter:

Other than new editions of The Last Emperor and Walkabout, the new offerings only upgrade the existing standard-def editions’ high-definition picture and sound, with “all the supplemental content of the DVD releases, and they will be priced to match our standard-def editions” (emphasis added).

Bottle Rocket over Rushmore or The Royal Tenenbaums is somewhat surprising, but I’m glad to see The Third Man, Walkabout, and Chungking Express on the list. I’ll be interested in seeing what new supplements they’ll have for Walkabout, which is a favorite of mine.
