Anybody recognize this film? It's the clue for this month:

Reminds me of the ending of Le Professionnel, but that's a French movie and we know Indicator doesn't do those. And though he's not in La Profesionnel, the dude on the floor looks like Yves Montand and the shot has gross French restoration written all over it, so like every guess I have for this is already wrong

It does look like Yves Montand. Since there has been a few Losey films announced by Indicator recently it could be Les Route du Sud (1978).

Well, there's a first time for everything re Indicator doing non-English language films. Assuming it is Montand there (and I've seen precious few of his films but I'd agree it looks like him), I see Losey directed The Roads to the South, a sequel to Resnais' La Guerre Est Finie. Based on the poster image on IMDB, it could be that (however unlikely) - maybe a box set of both films?

Apparently an ad in Little White Lies run by Indicator showed one new title: Paul Greengrass' Resurrected.

Powerhouse also submitted two titles to the BBFC, The Mad Magician (link) and The Pirates of Blood River (link).

The latter should confirm that Hammer Vol. 5 is on the way and a user on blu-ray speculated it could include that title plus Sword of Sherwood Forest, Passport to China, and Creatures the World Forgot.

Well Mad Magician sets an awful precedent of giving into terrorists' demands

It would probably make more sense to save Sword of Sherwood Forest for a Robin Hood set. Similarly Creates The World Forgot for the other prehistoric films, if possible. I would assume that If they are doing The Pirates of Blood River, there could be an opportunity to do an entire period pirate themed Hammer set with The Crimson Blade (also directed by John Gilling) and Captain Clegg (aka Night Creatures in the US).

The best known piracy/seafaring title of course being The Devil-Ship Pirates.

The latest Indicator newsletter contains the following tantalising tidbits:

As we look to the new year, it gives us great pleasure to confirm not only that there will be many more world premieres, but also that a great many of them will be brand new restorations.

In addition, 2020 will see us revealing details of a number of fresh licensing deals, and the launch of a new Powerhouse Films label, Anti-Worlds, dedicated to showcasing some of the most powerful, uncompromising, and brilliant new films from around the world.

There's another picture clue - which I can't currently access - which is apparently for the same film as the previous picture. It looks like a 60s Spy / SF film - my first thought was The Forbin Project (before it was announced as being the same film as the picture above) as I hadn't realised it was already out in the UK.

Somebody on blu-ray.com identifies this as Winter Kills (1979).

Should indicate that one of the new deals Indicator hyped up in the newsletter is with StudioCanal!

I hope they reissue The Reckoning with a new restoration one day. It’s an astonishing film, featuring one of the most compelling performances I’ve seen in a British film, and the current release might be a great package, but the master’s barely good enough for HD.
