Thread already exist and it's a Arrow Academy release not arrow video

Ah, you beat me to it.

Do you have any word on what's happening with the blu-ray release of Cinema Paradiso from Arrow? Seems like the 4K has released just fine but the blu-ray doesn't seem to have dispatched yet. Amazon still has it as releasing in 2039, Zavvi has it as OOS and Arrow haven't dispatched yet.

Amazon doesn't usually take this long, especially for pre-orders, do they?

I had an order with Zavvi and never got charged for the item when I checked my account the bar had turned blue and the item was listed as OOS. I waited until release date but still noithing so I decided I'd order directly from Arrow as Zavvi CS is terrible and I'd rather not deal with them. 4 days later and I haven't had a dispatch from Arrow either.

Another great looking set! I already own Brute Force, but still haven't got around to watching it yet. And of course I also want to check out Naked City at some point too, so this is pretty tempting.
