just got Vol 2
I think Indicator is running out of SONY titles to acquire - they've confirmed to be releasing Ishtar. Bound to happen sooner or later - Sony's library isn't as vast as Warner's or MGM's. They've pretty much exhausted all of the obscure Columbia Westerns and dramas they were interested in so they're digging around at the bottom of the well. Someone should tell Indicator there are other studios out there
By the way, I hate referring to Columbia Pictures as SONY Pictures.
Indicator have released films licensed from studios other than Sony. The "bulk" of their catalog of releases are indeed licensed from Sony... but they've had some titles licensed from StudioCanal, Universal, Paramount, 20th Century Fox, and even some smaller labels like Euro London and Screenbound.
Not much in the way of new Horror, but The Day of the Dolphin and Invincible are both excellent films. The Big Fix, I really can't even remember if I've ever seen before. Ishtar? Well... it's Ishtar.
OUR JULY EDITIONS
The offbeat and the oddball are the focus for INDICATOR this July, with an idiosyncratic quartet of films, all released on UK Blu-ray for the first time.
On 19 July, we present Mike Nichols’ one-of-a-kind THE DAY OF THE DOLPHIN. Filmed in the Bahamas, this science-fiction thriller stars George C Scott (Hardcore) as a scientist teaching dolphins to speak who becomes embroiled in a shadowy plot to assassinate the US President.
Also released on 19 July is Jeremy Paul Kagan’s THE BIG FIX. Produced by and starring Richard Dreyfuss, following his successes in Close Encounters of the Third Kind and The Goodbye Girl, this quirky comedy-thriller tracks the exploits of a sixties’ radical-turned-private eye as he investigates a case of election interference.
19 July provides more comedy in the shape of Elaine May’s ISHTAR. In a nod to the Bob Hope and Bing Crosby Road to… movies, Warren Beatty (Mickey One) and Dustin Hoffman (Straw Dogs) star as brilliantly awful songwriters who find themselves mixed up in Cold War shenanigans whilst in Morocco. Much maligned for decades, this wonderful film is now increasingly, and rightfully, recognised as one of the unsung greats of eighties' American cinema.
Finally on 19 July, celebrated director Werner Herzog’s INVINCIBLE arrives in a new 2K restoration. Upon its original release in 2001, this was the great German filmmaker’s first fictional work in a decade. Set during the rise of Nazism, this fictionalised account of the life of Jewish strongman Zishe Breitbart stars Tim Roth (Meantime) and Udo Kier (Exposé).
Mastered from the finest available materials, each of these essential releases contains expertly encoded presentations, a range of new and archival extra features, English subtitles for the deaf and hard-of-hearing, and booklets with new essays, historical articles, contemporary reviews, and film credits.
July’s releases are available to pre-order individually or in a time-limited bundle offer with a 10% discount. If you wish to take advantage of the offer, just add all of the new-release Limited Editions to your cart and enter the code BUNDLE at the checkout.

Kino dumped Day of the Dolphin onto Blu-ray without much fanfare but here is Indicator giving it the royal treatment. I always go for the royal treatment editions even if the film itself is mediocre - they look nicer on the shelves
