November's title have been announced at the HTF
ANTONY AND CLEOPATRA (1972)
I just noticed that Antony and Cleopatra was previously released on DVD by Warner Bros. Does this mark the first release of a WB film by Twilight Time, or have the rights changed hands?

They released Heaven & Earth, which is owned by WB, but only at the insistence of Oliver Stone IIRC. I don’t think they have an ongoing deal.

Charlton Heston's estate actually controls the rights, which were licensed to Warners and expired

The Demy and Quine have been discounted surprisingly quickly. I've been holding off in the hope of Indicator releases that will only be announced once I've succumbed to importing, and the accompanying ransom note I'll receive from the GPO to eventually free the discs into my possession, so I might as well jump onto that causality mobius strip now.

Very concerning news regarding The Iron Horse with larger implications about the Fox/Disney deal and its impact on boutique labels.

I'm not a lawyer, but since when do valid contracts get voided by something like this? Wouldn't any existent deal stand?

The license still exists, they have just decided to wait to see if it will be restored (it seems as if Disney may have indicated that funds may not be allocated to restorations, or perhaps a decrease in restoration funding).

A HD master already exists. It's certainly isnt brand new but it's suitable for a BD release. It has actually been released in France already a few years ago on BD. I'm thus not sure what TT is doing. If they have planned to release it already, surely, they know what is available or if they had to wait for new restoration work ?

They are not canceling though, just taking a wait and see we approach in case it does get restored?

"[W]e figured that just on the off-chance more work might be done on this title, we'll put our decision off for a while" seems like (marginally) good news, no?

I was really hoping Short Night would be a barebones release so I wouldn't feel tempted to buy it again.
