Did you find this info on Kanopy?
Yep! I use Justwatch to tell me what's been recently added to a bunch of streaming services, and it seems every Kanopy update includes a few new Kino Studio Canal picks.

Interesting, I guess this means that the "other company" got 'Le Trou'. Also surprised that KL Insider didn't brag about getting 'Leon Morin'.

Coming June 11th on DVD and Blu-ray!

Pursuit (1972 TV Movie) with optional English subtitles
• Brand New 2K Master
• Audio Commentary by Film Historian Lee Gambin and Comic Artist/Writer Tristan Jones

Color 74 Minutes 1.33:1 Not Rated
The Ultimate Weapon is about to be Unleashed! What begins as a routine investigation quickly escalates into a heart-stopping race to save millions from certain death in this taut and gripping thriller from the creator of Westworld, Coma and Jurassic Park. Michael Crichton (The Great Train Robbery, Looker, Runaway) makes an impressive directorial debut in this deadly cat-and-mouse game in which the stakes couldn’t get any higher. When government agent Steven Graves (Ben Gazzara, The Neptune Factor) investigates political extremist James Wright (E.G. Marshall, Nixon), he uncovers a diabolical plot to blast lethal nerve gas into San Diego during the Republican Convention. What’s worse, a computer hacker (Martin Sheen, Loophole) has provided Wright with a psychological profile to help him outwit Graves. Can Graves find a way to stop Wright before the ultimate nightmare begins? Co-starring Joseph Wiseman (Dr. No) and William Windom (The Detective).

We were not ready to announce many of these, but our other department made this deal with Kanopy, so titles are being confirmed before our initial announcements. We have all the ones mentioned on the previous page.

This is a terrific, exciting film and has never been officially released on DVD or Blu in this country as far as I know. (There's an Optimum DVD, and I think even the initial pressing of that was cropped.)

I’m most excited for Buffet froid, but lots of good stuff to look forward to here. Presumably Camille Claudel will be the uncut version

They're streaming a really high quality print too. It was a lot of fun.

Wow, it’s going to be a great year for Blu-Ray upgrades! Nice to see those Sautet titles which I believe are previously unannounced. Also feeling pretty great about selling my Anchor Bay DVD of Baby Blood for $60 a few years back

Good to have confirmation that the KL release will have both cuts of Blackmail. That should be a stellar release. Despite my Hitchcock obsession I've still yet to see the silent version.

Wow, both Un Coeur en Hiver and Nelly and Mr Arnaud. And Lucky Luciano. And some of the 80s Godards. Terrific lineup of films to come from KL.

I’ve heard good things about Outcast of the Islands, so I’ll be excited to pick that one up; it’s never had an HD release, correct?

Baby Blood has been on my most wanted horror films to arrive on blu for awhile. I hope it includes the English dub version just to have Gary Oldman as the voice of the baby

Real talk: Kino Lorber has somehow become the best boutique label in terms of getting movies out, just look at these lists. Even discarding the junk, there’s a ridiculous amount of good titles here and the sheer volume is so heartening, as opposed to the slow trickle from the usual boutiques

The pace of releases is incredible. Plus a pretty good balance between arthouse and cult/kitsch stuff.

Hasn't that always been the case with the only question being quality such as with a lack of subs on some releases?

KIDNAPPED (1971) with optional English subtitles
• Theatrical Trailer

Color 107 Minutes 2.35:1 Rated G
In this Robert Louis Stevenson (Treasure Island) adventure story, the battlefield of Culloden is awash with the blood of Scottish Highlanders making their last stand against the Hanoverian forces. Against this wartorn backdrop of the Jacobite Rebellion, the young orphan David Balfour seeks to claim his inheritance from his uncle Ebenezer (Donald Pleasence, The Great Escape), who in turn shanghais David into slavery. A prisoner at sea, David finds a swashbuckling companion in fugitive Jacobite rebel Alan Breck (played with panache by Michael Caine, The Black Windmill). Veteran Hollywood filmmaker Delbert Mann (Marty, Separate Tables) directed this old-fashioned classic adventure yarn co-starring Trevor Howard (Von Ryan’s Express) and Jack Hawkins (The Bridge on the River Kwai).

Coming June 18th on DVD and Blu-ray!

The Silent Partner (1978) with optional English subtitles
• NEW Interview with star Elliott Gould
• NEW Audio Commentary by Film Historians Howard S. Berger, Steve Mitchell and Nathaniel Thompson
• Theatrical Trailer
• Radio Spot

Color 106 Minutes 1.85:1 Rated R
A masterpiece of cunning and suspense… Miles Cullen (Elliott Gould, The Long Goodbye, Busting) discovers how interesting life can be when he is transformed from mild-mannered bank teller into daring, ingenious bank robber in a matter of seconds. Held up at the bank by the criminal Reikle (Christopher Plummer, Ordeal by Innocence), Miles manages to stash most of the money in a deposit box first. When Reikle realizes he’s been shortchanged, he plans to take revenge—and a great battle of wits ensues. To keep the money, Miles reaches new heights of courage, seducing the robber’s girlfriend (Céline Lomez, Plague) and his boss’s mistress (Susannah York, The Killing of Sister George). Filled with equal parts intrigue, romance and unexpected twists, this chilling psychological thriller also features comedy legend John Candy (Delirious) in an early film role. The screenplay by future filmmaker extraordinaire Curtis Hanson (L.A. Confidential) was based on the book Think of a Number by Anders Bodelsen. Wonderfully directed by Daryl Duke (Payday).

Coming June 18th on DVD and Blu-ray!

Slayground (1984) with optional English subtitles
• NEW Interview with star Peter Coyote
• Theatrical Trailer

Color 89 Minutes 1.85:1 Rated R
From Donald E. Westlake, the creator of Point Blank, The Outfit and The Grifters! It should have been a quick and easy heist for Stone (Peter Coyote, Bitter Moon, Heart of Midnight), a cold cash hit on an armored car. But things turn ugly when a young girl is accidentally killed during the getaway and the child’s grieving father hires a sadistic assassin to avenge her death. Now Stone is on the run from a relentless killing machine, a chase that will lead them to a run-down amusement park on the bleak British coast where death is the final contract and vengeance is the ultimate ride. Billie Whitelaw (Frenzy, The Krays) and comedy legend Mel Smith (Brain Donors) co-star in this violent action-thriller with a screenplay by Trevor Preston (I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead, The Sweeney) and top-notch direction by veteran cameraman Terry Bedford (Jabberwocky).

Tim Lucas on FB made this announcement for upcoming commentaries.

"I've been given the green light to share with you the titles of the Kino Lorber releases I've been working on most recently, and those I'll be working on this month. Already turned in are my tracks for the classic British horror anthology DEAD OF NIGHT (1946) and the last film of Jess Franco's black-and-white period, ATTACK OF THE ROBOTS (CARTES SUR TABLE, 1965), starring Eddie Constantine. There's the other major title I just turned in, but it's not been properly announced - so holding off on that. Next up for me are two absolute dream projects, two of my favorite films in all the world: Jean-Luc Godard's ALPHAVILLE (1965), also starring Eddie Constantine; and that sublime collaboration of Alain Resnais and Alain Robbe-Grillet, LAST YEAR AT MARIENBAD (L'ANNÉE DERNIÈR À MARIENBAD, 1961)! Others have been announced that I'll also be doing, but I prefer to wait to mention those till I'm closer to actually doing them."

EDIT: Alphaville will include the English dub.

The Border (1982) with optional English subtitles
• NEW Audio Commentary by Film Critic and Author Simon Abrams
• Theatrical Trailer

Color 108 Minutes 2.35:1 Rated R
At the edge of risk… on the other side of reason! Screen legend Jack Nicholson (The Shining, Prizzi’s Honor, Chinatown) stars in this gripping story of a man torn between his career and his conscience. As a border guard involved in drug smuggling along the Rio Grande, Charlie Smith (Nicholson) has crossed the line many times. But when he decides to clean up his act and help unite an “illegal” woman with her baby, he runs afoul of his corrupt department, his greedy wife (Valerie Perrine, Superman: The Movie) and a ruthless neighbor (Harvey Keitel, Blue Collar) in this action-packed suspense-thriller. Veteran filmmaker Tony Richardson (Tom Jones, The Hotel New Hampshire) directed this tension-filled crime-drama co-starring the great Warren Oates (The Brink’s Job).
