All studioCanal releases are region specific for blu-ray and Shout factory in the USA have the rights for the Howling.. Easy order. Knew this would be on the cards. Did not think it would be so soon.

Scream Factory release of The Howling is licenced from StudioCanal

The John Carpenter scream factory releases The Fog/Escape From New York/They Live/Prince of Darkness are also licenced from StudioCanal
This is why the StudioCanal logo is on those USA releases

It's possibe Scream will do a 4K UHD release also but that is TBC

OG poster art as hoped (just with a deep red). Hopefully some debossing on the scratches like the Basic Instinct release.

Preordered along with the CE :thumbs:
Good memory, very good. :thumbs: I needed to check it out after reading your post. Actually, It is a pity that they did not keep the original color because that red does not fit so well. Anyway, I also like it and it will be GREAT if they make the debossing that you mention. We will see...

StudioCanal films Shout get the rights unless that deal expires
At the moment that deal is still operating
A lot of the hammer releases scream factory did for example was also licenced from StudioCanal

StudioCanal distribute home media releases themselves in UK/France/Germany/Australia

Other countries they licence out to other labels to distribute their releases

A lot of the criteron collection in usa is licenced from StudioCanal

Until very recent StudioCanal had the rights to Miramax catalouge for films made between 2011 to 2020 before that changed to Paramount

There is a lot of films that are StudioCanal produced but are distributed by others
Example if you not aware Hot Fuzz is StudioCanal production but distributed by Universal
