Powerhouse Indicator have posted this picture:

Masterpiece of a film and as I was looking through my 500 DVDs (and counting) recently and wondered when it was getting a release.

Hopefully they'll have the reverse cover with the US one sheet:

Definitely the most exciting UK distributor.

Topped up on some Powerhouse Indicator as they're only £10.49 on chili.com (use code: SPRING50 to get that price):

Age of Consent (never seen this but it looks interesting)
Missing (classic Costa Gavras -would love to see "Z" get a release on Blu-ray)

If it does get a release I'll get Birdy direct from PI and get some of those very hard to get Blu-ray cases.

Wow, it's like waiting on a bus for ages and then two come along at once :D

Will avoid the Mill Creek version if PI release theirs.

I can't find any evidence that US release was released last week it seems to have disappeared from most sites.

Oh, the innocence.

Bullmoose show stock in individual stores here and Rarewaves are still listing it.

Maybe it was incredibly popular and already OOP until they reduplicate another load in Mexico.

Review of the US disc here Looks solid.

Sadly, Indicator's release announcement yesterday did not include Birdy.

I'll just have to wait.

Call off the coastguard, we have evidence:

With this and Alan Parker's other 80s classic Angel Heart getting a UHD in Germany we're being spoiled!

:D
