Artwork TBC

The Criterion Collection and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment have confirmed their two Blu-ray releases for January 2018.

3:10 TO YUMA

A Film By Delmer Daves

Release Date: 8 January, 2017

In this beautifully shot and acted, psychologically complex western, Van Heflin is a mild-mannered cattle rancher who takes on the task of shepherding a captured outlaw, played with cucumber-cool charisma by Glenn Ford, to the train that will take him to prison.

This apparently simple plan turns into a nerve-racking cat-and-mouse game that will test each man’s particular brand of honour.

Based on a story by Elmore Leonard, 3:10 to Yuma is a thrilling, humane action movie, directed by the supremely talented studio filmmaker Delmer Daves with intense feeling and precision.

Special Features:

New high-definition digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack

Alternate 5.1 surround soundtrack, presented in DTS-HD Master Audio

New interviews with author Elmore Leonard and Glenn Ford’s son and biographer, Peter Ford

PLUS: A booklet featuring an essay by critic Kent Jones


A Film By Andrei Tarkovsky

Release Date: 8 January, 2017

The debut feature by the great Andrei Tarkovsky (Andrei Rublev), Ivan’s Childhood is a poetic journey through the shards and shadows of one boy’s war-ravaged youth.

Moving back and forth between the traumatic realities of World War II and serene moments of family life before the conflict began, Tarkovsky’s film remains one of the most jarring and unforgettable depictions of the impact of war on children.

Special Features:

High-definition digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack

Appreciation of filmmaker Andrei Tarkovsky and Ivan’s Childhood featuring Vida T. Johnson, co-author of The Films of Andrei Tarkovsky: A Visual Fugue

Interviews with cinematographer Vadim Yusov and actor Nikolai Burlyaev

PLUS: A booklet featuring an essay by film scholar Dina Iordanova; “Between Two Films,” Tarkovsky’s essay on Ivan’s Childhood; and “Ivan’s Willow,” a poem by the director’s father, Arseny Tarkovsky
