Forthcoming: Ghost Dog: The Way Of The Samurai

#3 Post by Never Cursed » Thu Jun 25, 2020 2:11 pm

Criterion is asking for fan-submitted questions to be answered by Jim Jarmusch on an upcoming release of Ghost Dog: The Way Of The Samurai. The release will be sourced from a 4K restoration of the film.

Is it just me, or are there now three different threads for this? Also how are non-mods starting threads?

It seems as though swo, soundchaser (in the Speculation thread), Ribs, and I all posted the same info within 4 minutes of each other. I don't remember a time when non-mods couldn't start threads, though I'm a relatively new user

While swo was clearly the victor, I wanted to respect the history of the losers by moving the other posts to this thread and keeping them standing as monuments to the Great Ghost Dog Thread War of 2020.

Thanks, yeah I tried to veer away from a threadsplit with an awful pun to tie us back to the less-awful film

Sorry if this has been covered elsewhere but will it be licensed from LionsGate or someone else?

I believe the rights reverted back to Jarmusch/his company and they're most likely licensing to Criterion/Janus similar to what they did when that happened with Dead Man.

Jarmusch has stated publicly that as the rights to his films revert back to him, he intends to give Criterion first dibs at re-releasing them on home video (I saw him at an event this past February in which he said as much, proclaiming his appreciation for the label).
