Ubiquitous as always, there’s a whole lot more of Werner Herzog coming our way over the next few months. The upcoming 16-film Blu-ray set, arriving at the end of this month, would normally be plenty, but there's also his first narrative feature since 2009: "Queen of the Desert."

Ubiquitous as always, there’s a whole lot more of Werner Herzog coming our way over the next few months. The upcoming 16-film Blu-ray set, arriving at the end of this month, would normally be plenty, but there's also his first narrative feature since 2009: "Queen of the Desert." After years of development, casting, re-casting, and production, his biopic, following the influential cartographer Gertrude Bell — and starring Nicole Kidman, Robert Pattinson, Damian Lewis, and James Franco — is prepping for the fall festival circuit. In advance, the first still has arrived and can be seen below, courtesy of The Film Stage.

For a look back at the rich, eclectic Herzog canon check out Fandor, which is streaming the 16 titles featured in that aforementioned Blu-ray set. Also worth examining is their reprint of a 1998 interview/profile he did at the time of "Little Dieter Needs to Fly." Fitting that one of his greatest documentaries would yield one of his more illuminating profiles; between it and the streaming collection, you’ll have your Herzog fill for days and weeks to come.
