The above image was released by the Criterion Collection on New Year’s Day as an artful hint helping Criterion fans guess at what might be released from the home video studio in 2010. The use of blue was specifically seen as nods to Blu-ray candidates (how many blue leopards have you seen?) and helped inspire me to put together ths following list of confirmed and rumored catalog Blu-ray releases for 2010. However, I wasn’t able to do this on my own. I needed help from, Hi-Def Junkies and The Digital Bits to put the following list together.

I started with a list of confirmed 2010 releases followed by rumored 2010 releases. I have included links to any of the titles already added to the RopeofSilicon database.
