      Greg, Todd - No, "Mysterious Object at Noon" is just TOO groaning a Criterion pun. I give them that one.

    Could the window be Murnau's Sunrise? I don't think anyone has mentioned that one yet.

    Does anyone else notice the one little stem coming off of the clock, maybe a sign of A Clockwork Orange? And if the candles do single out Sixteen Candles, I would like to see some John Hughes in the collection, some blu rays of his work have really low quality transfers.

    I wonder if those letters mean Goodbye to Language as a criterion release... Would be odd, since there already is a blue ray -- but then they surprised me with Certified Copy... Greg

    Yes, Jeanne Dielman on Blu-ray! I also see Sixteen Candles, and Ghost World. Anyone know what the musical notes are?

      they seem to be around the Cuban flags, so probably "Buena Vista Social Club" - considering how much Wenders Criterion has, that makes sense. I was hoping the flags mean "Soy Cuba," but "Buena Vista" is cool

      Jesse E., where do you see Grand Budapest Hotel? I'm most excited for that release, but don't see it in the picture. Or has it already been confirmed somewhere?

    - The window could be Murnau's "Sunrise" ? (Would love to see more silent cinema on Criterion wit the same care afforded to "Phantom Carriage", etc.) - " Hail Caesar" - Roman statue - Criterion's handling of Llewyn Davis is first carbin. - Cuban flags possibly "I am Cuba"? BV Social Club makes more sense, though "I am Cuba" would be a terrific Criterion title. - Altman's "A Wedding" - yes!!! Please dear, Lord!! One of Mr. Altman's most under-appreciated gems. Lillian Gish, Geraldine Chaplin, Mia Farrow and Carol Burnet all in the same film ?! What more can you want! Plus the core Altman stock company and a great premise. If you don't know the film I hope you get the chance with Criterion. (My Criterion Altman wish-list: Images, Long Goodbye, Brewster McCloud, California Split *CS with the theatrical usage of the period songs and music licensed* - second tier: Brewster McCloud, A Perfect Couple.) - "Sixteen Candles" likely correct... but why o' why? I mean no offense, Hughes fans. I respect the generational cultural impact of his work. I worked with him on a show that didn't get made and he was a nice fellow. I'd think 'Breakfast Club' to be a better tribute title if Criterion is going to cover him.)

    Isn't the clock simply BEFORE MIDNIGHT?

    "Sixteen Candles" - surprised by this..."Something Wild" is one thing, but this one seems too light/commercial "Ghost World" - cool "They Live By Night" - another Ray, that's cool "Soy Cuba" - i'm hoping two Cuban flags means that, would be amazing "Jeanne Dielman" on Blu-Ray, that's cool don't know about the rest...

    Given the titles that recently turned up on FilmStruck, could the nice sunny horizon outside the window be a Clear Day, on which you can See Forever?

    The cube with the question mark has to be Super Mario Bros. Right?

    "I AM CUBA" = the flags? It would be a great Criterion title. BV Social Club is a more accurate guess though. "SUNRISE"by F.W. Murnau's = the window? Again, other guesses more likely correct, but what a great addition SUNRISE would make to the Collection. And a real longshot...The bride and groom = "BEETLEJUICE"?.

    Cuban flags with song notes: BUENAVENTURA VISTA SOCIAL CLUB. Alexander The Great with Fanny pack, FANNY & ALEXANDER blu-ray. SIXTEEN CANDLES is a very odd choice, but so was THE BIG CHILL.

    Could it be Sunset Blvd. The sun appears to be setting and there is a road next to it.

      No hyperbole...If Criterion announced a release of Sunset Blvd. it would be in the top 3 days of my life!

    Sixteen Candles clearly is evident. Criterion really needs some John Hughes films.

    Please let the winged figure be a reference to Nilsson's "La Casa del Angel".
