Indicator announces its January and February Blu-ray & DVD titles

18 November 2016

After successfully launching in October with critically acclaimed editions of John Carpenter's Christine and Brian De Palma's Body Double, Indicator begins the new year by publishing more unmissable films in expertly encoded Limited Dual Format Editions (all UK premiere Blu-rays, packaged with a DVD and a collector's booklet).

Released on 23 January, Indicator presents two more stylish films from the great John Carpenter: Vampires (1998), which sees James Woods lead a team of vampire-hunters in a bloody battle with the undead, and the sci-fi chiller Ghosts of Mars (2001), starring Natasha Henstridge, Pam Grier and Jason Statham.

Also released on 23 January is Richard Fleischer’s hard-hitting, yet criminally long-unseen police drama The New Centurions (1972), starring George C. Scott and Stacy Keach.

Hal Ashby’s foul-mouthed The Last Detail (1973), starring Jack Nicholson and Randy Quaid, will be released on 20 February. Also released in February is Otto Preminger’s tense kidnap drama Bunny Lake is Missing (1965), starring Laurence Olivier and Kier Dullea, and Sidney Lumet’s ingenious heist thriller The Anderson Tapes (1971), starring Sean Connery and featuring music by Quincy Jones.

Mastered from the finest available materials, Indicator releases contain lovingly assembled extra features and include new and improved English subtitles for the deaf and hard-of-hearing. These Limited Edition Dual Format Editions will all contain exclusive, full- colour booklets containing full credits, newly commissioned essays and archive material.
