If it is just the Showa series and Criterion includes the original, it'll be 14 or 15 films depending on if Universal licenses King Kong vs Godzilla to them.

I was expecting it to come out closer to the holiday season, much like the Bergman set, but there's no harm in having it out sooner. With that in mind, I can have at least one guess correct:

Citizen Kane (if this announced, then The Other Side of the Wind or The Eyes of Orson Welles)
The Grand Budapest Hotel
The Devils
Bamboozled
Godzilla box set

The Bergman set was announced in mid-July but didn't come out til November, and as I recall the Olympic set also was revealed outside of the regular announcements. I imagine it will get a separate announcement like those did, apart from the usual 15th of the month announces

Sorry to derail the guessing but is there some credible evidence I’ve missed that’s leading to all these guesses for The Devils? That would be huge.

I think some of the basis is that it'll be spine number 999.

I feel like it's only because we're likely getting Spine #999 and people feel like it's going to be devil/Satan related like #666 was. It's possible they'll do nothing for it. #888 for Stalker could have been deliberate because it looks like the infinity symbol, but that could just be a coincidence. They could have done something Vegas or gambling related for #777 but didn't. Anyway for #999, If I'm being realistic, I'd prefer a film that uses devil imagery like Post Tenebras Lux.

Re: The Devils

Peter Becker has said on multiple occasions that it is one of his favorite films and a priority for them. It has also been made known that there are more Russell titles in the pipeline. Criterion’s relationship with WB has so far produced a number of titles that would have previously seemed extremely unlikely. WB also licensed the film out to both Shudder and Filmstruck in the past year and a half so it seems like their wild aversion to it has wained.

We all lnow how important and vital a film like the Devils is and how big of a deal it would be if Criterion were able to put it out in full. And with spine 999 landing in the October slate at a high point of WB licensed films...I think it’s a pretty likely possibilitiy.

Or how about it is The Omen (1976).

Obviously 999 is End of Days.

(You’d only get that joke if you’ve seen End of Days, which I don’t recommend)

Had no idea.… Just did a quick search, a whole deluxe edition! Not bad.… I really would’ve loved a Criterion release of it, like the one they did with the Roeg’s Don’t Look Now. (Yes, I have an obsession with Criterion releases.)

In that case it would be great if they released The VVitch with that spine number. (Or how I would love Under the Skin!) But that’s probably not happening either because they haven’t released any A24 films yet.

Is there a reason Star 80 is popping up in multiple lists? Was there a hint or tease I missed or is it just wishing and hoping?
Wishful thinking on my part. Don’t know about anyone else.
Same with me.
