Absent Minded Professor has been announced, but not date has been set. There was a flyer about it in the finding nemo blu-ray release as a 2-movie collection, with Son of Flubber included. Some sites say it's coming sometime in 2013.

Adams Family 1 & 2 (Late 2013, Paramount via Warner Distribution)
as good as it gets (Twilight Time exclusive in US, available now, 3 year exclusive)
the birds (Already available)
Blob (remake) (Coming from Twilight Time in 2014, 3 year exclusive)
High Plains Drifter (Supposedly in the works, but nothing official)
Jeepers Creepers 2 (stand alone) 2 disc coming but already have JC-1 (Not likely to be an individual release)
Mary Poppins (Likely 2014 to from cross promotion with Saving Mr Banks)
Nightbreed (Cabal Cut from Shout Factory in 2014, theatrical cut un-likely since it would be WB and it was only an Archive Collection release.)
Real Genius (Likely a limited release from Twilight Time)
Superman 2 (Theatrical cut) (Only available in Anthology Set... Not likely for an individual release)
True lies (2014)
Vampires (John Carpenter) (Probably a Twilight Time, if ever.)
The Wall (pink Floyd) (Sony Music controls this... Un-known, but took forever on DVD)
white chicks (GOD WHY?)
There's a ton of Paramount in you list that is pretty much un-known, but since they signed a distribution deal with Warner, there's a better chance of them happening. (Hopefully a box set of the Bad News Bears... Crocodile Dundee, etc.)

I'm not sure if it's possible to get a theatrical cut of Amadeus, though I'm not sure why you'd want to. The extended cut adds some useful depth to Salieri.
As Good As It Gets was a Twilight Time exclusive... it might be a little hard to get ahold of it.
The Birds is available in the Hitchcock collection, but I don't think a standalone release has been announced.
And the theatrical version of Superman II is available...in the "Superman Motion Picture Anthology" box set, currently going for about $117.

It would be nice to see Real Genius released. And I'd like to see Vampires too.

Thanks for the great info.

On the Amadeus bluray: I really enjoy the directors cut, but prefer the theatrical. Amadeus may be my favorite film. As far as fiptrod wondering about White Chicks...it is just one of those movies that I thought was really funny. I missed the limited release of As good as it gets...The blurays for sale now of this film are really pricey because of this. I was also interested in the 1990 Night of the living dead, but this was also a Twilight Time and now out out print. This release did not get the best reviews on PQ, so I passed. I wish I would have picked it up.

Some great titles, with some little known (Breakdown and The Hidden) gems in there. While you're at it, what about:

Bad Day at Black Rock (announced some time ago but never released)
Big Wednesday
Breakheart Pass (Bronson)
Capricorn 1
The Contender (Jeff Bridges)
Fail Safe
For Love of the Game (Costner)
Gunfight at the OK Corral (Burt Lancaster/Kirk Douglas)
Last Train From Gun Hill (Douglas again)
The Late Show (Art Carney)
Never So Few (Frank Sinatra/Steve McQueen)
Open Range (Costner)
Run Silent Run Deep
Seven Days in May
Shoot to Kill (Poitier)
Thirteen Days (Costner)
Victor Victoria
Warlock (Henry Fonda, Richard Widmark)
The Wind and the Lion

Also hoping for solo releases of Hitchcock's Rear Window and Vertigo (which are in the collection).

On the pre-widscreen front, I hope to see Red River at some point.

Thanks Fitprod. I checked and you are right, AGAIG is still available for 29.99 + shipping etc.

Dommie- Some great titles you posted. I forgot about Shoot to Kill with Sidney Poitier and Tom Berringer! Great film! I have not seen a lot of the films on your post. I have seen Shoot to kill; Victor Victoria; Open Range, Capricorn 1 and Big Wednesday, but none of the others.

All Twilight Time releases are distributed exclusively through screenarchives.com. Even though they’re limited to 3,000 copies, very few Twilight Time discs have ever actually sold out. (Of course, that doesn’t stop people from trying to speculate on them with jacked-up prices on eBay.)

Yeah, unless it's a horror film, it takes a while to sell out. Even then it's questionable.
