It seems every label in the UK is going crazy about Sergio Sollima. :-\
After the announcement of Blu-Ray releases for Revolver (Eureka Entertainment), and Violent City (88 Films), The Big Gundown is next.

There's not many details available at the moment, but Indicator (Powerhouse) has announced a UK BD release of The Big Gundown.

While there's already some great, English-friendly BD releases of the film in the US and Germany, Indicator usually does some great work in everything they touch, from the actual transfer, the special features, and even the packaging/booklets, so I have no doubt this upcoming UK BD will be worth the wait.  8)

Umbrella Entertainment released a massive boxset in their Drive-In Delirium series, compiling the previous 6 individual volumes into a gargantuan set with 35+ hours of trailers (excluding extras).

If you like trailer compilations and don't own the previous releases, this one is a must have.

Has anybody seen The Making of Too Beautiful to Die? Apparently it's on a Colourbox VHS.

Sorry for the year old "bump", Marc, but considering this isn't listed in the specs for your upcoming release of Too Beautiful to Die, I assume you didn't manage to find it and/or include it, right?

I wish you would be able to get it, or even better, if you managed to license the latest film in this (sort of) series, Sotto il vestito niente - L'ultima sfilata, to make it a trilogy boxset, because I always pick up your releases, but in this case I have the Vinegar Syndrome set already, and both releases appear to almost identical...  :o

Blood of the Vampire, on the other hand, will be a sure buy.  8)

9 year "bump" ;D, but it seems I'll be retiring my Italian BD soon.

Violent City is getting new US and UK BD releases soon, with multiple cuts included.

In the US, Kino Lorber is releasing Violent City on May 17 as a 2 BD set, with the following specs:

DISC ONE:
*NEW 2K RESTORATION of Violent City (In English & Italian with Optional English Subtitles)
*NEW Audio Commentary by Film Historian Paul Talbot, the author of the BRONSON'S LOOSE! Books
*Shooting VIOLENT CITY: Interview with Co-Writer/Director Sergio Sollima
*Theatrical Trailers for VIOLENT CITY and THE FAMILY
*TV Spot for THE FAMILY

DISC TWO:
*NEW 4K Restoration of Città violenta (In Italian with Optional English Subtitles)
*Master of The Family – 2K Scan of a 35mm Print (In English with Optional English Subtitles)
*Charles Bronson Theatrical Trailers



---

In the UK, 88 Films is releasing it on May 16, also as a 2 BD set.
While the final specs are yet to be announced, the contents are probably going to be very similar to the US release, since when they first announced this release, they confirmed the following inclusions:

*3 Cuts of the Film: 4K transfer of Violent City, 2K tranfer of the Italian Cut, The Family Version
*Audio Commentary by Paul Talbot
*Trailer

I picked this up, great release - as well as their Blu release of Escalation, 1968. Pity no English option but grabbed it anyway in case it's the only HD release we will ever see of it.

Sorry for "cheating" a bit, since it's technically not a soundtrack release (but it's an album by a soundtrack composer, so I guess it's close ;D), but I was unaware that, after years of re-recording the same soundtrack compositions over and over again, Claudio Simonetti has actually released an album of original material last year, The Devil is Back, released with his latest band, Claudio Simonetti's Goblin. And, it's pretty good!

One of the tracks has a really cool video, featuring some claymation use:

The cut scene is indeed later in the film between the park guard and Von Blanc.  All of her nudity is preserved in the US cut.  What is missing are a couple nude shots of the guard on top of her intercut with the close-ups of the tomb painting before the shot in the US version of the guard rolling off of her.  Note the abrupt music cut at roughly 75 minutes just after Cord's character emerges from the tomb after his confrontation with Marley.

Does the German BD present that scene fully intact, or is it cut like the US BD?

thanks  :D
