UPDATE: We've received word from Tartan that it's Spring Blu-ray titles are currently planned as U.K. releases only. No domestic release dates have yet been scheduled. We've updated our database accordingly.

Tartan Video has revealed their Blu-ray release schedule for this spring, a six-strong slate headlined by the acclaimed dramas 'Paranoid Park' and 'The Proposition.'

One of the format's leading distributors of indie and foreign titles, Tartan's spring Blu-ray line-up will include a diverse selection of six theatrical and catalog releases from such acclaimed filmmakers as Gus Van Sant and Park Chan-Wook.

The wave begins on April 14 with the Asian chiller 'A Tale of Two Sisters,' followed two weeks later on April 28 by Gus Van Sant's acclaimed teen drama 'Paranoid Park.'

A double-header from 'Oldboy' director Park Chan-Wook will follow on May 26, with separate stand-alone releases of his comedic-fantasy 'I'm a Cyborg,' and thriller 'Lady Vengeance.'

Finally, June 23 will see the release of rocker Nick Cave's critically-praised revisionist western 'The Proposition,' and the animated Korean cult favorite 'Sky Blue.'

Tartan has yet to issue full press releases for the six titles, so tech specs and supplement details remain TBA.

Suggested retail prices for each Blu-ray have been set at $34.95.

As we await full announcements, you'll find preliminary specs for all six titles linked from our Blu-ray Release Schedule, where they're indexed under their respective street dates.
