You can now pre-order Paolo Sorrentino’s The Great Beauty from the Criterion Collection’s iTunes channel, with a release date of February 25th, 2014.
The March 2014 Criterion line-up should be announced soon, and with this pre-order going up now, it certainly seems like a Blu-ray for The Great Beauty is a strong possibility.
Earlier today the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn announced that The Great Beauty was nominated for Best Foreign Film (alongside Blue Is The Warmest Colour), and with the Oscars set to air on March 2nd, 2014, I’m sure Janus will be pushing as hard as they can to get everyone to see this film.

“We’re thrilled to report today that we are planning to release Brian DePalma’s classic 1974 film PHANTOM OF THE PARADISE sometime in the later half of the Summer!”
“This marks the first time the film will be on blu-ray for the first time in the U.S. and Canada. Expect this to be in the “Collector’s Edition” series with new extras but we have no other details to report at this time as our deal for this was literally just signed so stay tuned here in the Spring of next year for more info to emerge.”
