    It's a little early perhaps to start a 2018 thread, however this news just surfaced today. I love the film Dead Man & have not purchased it yet on Blu-ray, so this will be a very welcome release!

    Internet consensus seems to be that the "Films Truck" is advertising Filmstruck Criterion's streaming site:
    Double feature Friday
    Tuesday film + short film
    T-bone Steak with Camera = MEAT the Filmmakers
    Every Frame a Painting / Observations in Film Art
    cow in 'V' = Moo-V

    Highly Likely:
    Olive bottle runners = The Virgin Suicides
    Rear of HOPE sign = The Other Side of Hope
    Red 'M'-in-press = Scarlet Empress
    dog biting hat = The Awful Truth
    bowling ball with cartridges = Bowling for Columbine

    The only one I could have guessed was Bowling for Columbine, but that just wasn't on my mind.

    I think the one in the middle to the right of Moo-V might be Full Metal Jacket.

    I'd put my money on The Virgin Spring, though it looks like they've already hinted at The Virgin Suicides. Another double hint, like last year's They Live at Night / Night of the Living Dead hint?

    Would be great, and I can see with Warner's recent licenses to Criterion squeezing out a few extra bucks from their Kubrick collection before the inevitable UHD releases, but it's an 'L' wearing the armor. Doesn't quiet seem to fit. But that one's got a LOT of people scratching their heads.

    It's possible, but Sofia Coppola has confirmed that Criterion is working on The Virgin Suicides. I believe Ferris Bueller's Day Off is in the cards as well.

    I'm thinking The Tree of Life and maybe Monty Python and the Holy Grail based on the suit of armor? Or maybe Warhol/Morrisey's L'Amour from 76? I always get these wrong but I always find out about new movies I hadn't thought of before so its a blast.

    Are those missiles/bullets indicative of The Day After?

    Not sure if it's in the clues, but it was revealed they are working on No Country For Old Men.

    Well it looks like almost half the clues are the upcoming April releases:
    The Awful Truth (1937)
    The Color of Pomegranates (1968)
    Dead Man (1995)
    Eclipse Series: Ingrid Bergman's Swedish Years [explains the moon too]
    - The Count of the Old Town
    - Walpurgis Night
    - Intermezzo
    - Dollar
    - A Woman's Face June Night
    The Virgin Suicides (1999)

    Which is kinda bullshit. Why bother putting together a "year" of hints if you're going to blow half of them in fifteen days? At this rate the other 6 will be announced this time next month for May release.

    I am really looking forward to both Dead Man and The Virgin Suicides!
