I searched up "Oshima" on the website and 'Boy' (1969) shows up as a phantom page.

Didn't Janus tour the restoration of Boy around the time Death By Hanging was released on Blu-ray?

If you search for Fassbinder on the website you get these phantom pages:

Chinese Roulette
Effi Briest
Fear of Fear
Mother Küster Goes to Heaven
Querelle
Satan's Brew

There actually are quite a few of these pages, but most of them are films we already knew about from Filmstruck or other sources.

Everything else was which is why I qualified the statement with 'most'. There is one other film that I found that hasn't been previously mentioned by Wim Wenders called From the Family of Reptiles/The Island. They look like two episodes of a German TV series called A House for Us.

I wouldn’t be surprised if this rise in Phantom Pages is in preparation for the new streaming platform.

I hadn't seen any mention of this before, but I just found a page for Olivier Assayas' Irma Vep on the Janus site. And I don't know if it means anything, but it notes that it is available in Blu-ray.

Someone linked it in July, two pages back in this thread.

A poster named 'Scottie' over at Blu-ray.com has confirmed several Janus phantom pages for many Haneke films that we already knew were coming down the pipeline, including Haneke's first four feature films and The Castle.

I'm not sure if it has been mentioned anywhere but a search for 'Pasolini' reveals a phantom page for Teorema.

Again, a title many of us expected, but I wanted it to be noted that Janus has a page for it on the website.

Janus is hosting a Kiarostami retrospective later this year. I don't know how to post images on here, so I'm linking an imgur post: https://imgur.com/a/5OWu53i

I was snooping around on the Janus site and noticed there are many unreleased Wim Wenders films listed. Not sure how new these are, but some of the screencaps look very impressive -- Tokyo-Ga in particular. I wasn't a big fan of the first two Road Trilogy movies, but Kings of the Road won me over; hopefully, we'll get to see some of these put out on Blu-ray later this year.

Tokyo-Ga is included as a supplement on Criterion’s release of Ozu’s Late Spring.

They toured those Wenders' films about three years ago, and I'm sure they'll get around to them when they have the time/resources to get around to them. They're currently touring Wings of Desire and have been intermittently teasing Until the End of the World.

Janus is putting out Mark Cousins' The Eyes of Orson Welles on March 15 in New York (weirdly, what theater is unlisted).

Just a guess but I would think the IFC theater.

You would be correct.
