    Would have purchased this and atomic blonde but due to the constant lack of title and atomic s appalling artwork it's a no go for me

    Same here. The only bright side is that I've saved so much money by not buying poor UK and WWA steelbooks this year - that I can then put towards far superior Asian and FAC releases.

    Total number of steels I own without title spine = 0
    Total number of steels I will EVER own without title spine = 0

    Not the worst Steelbook. Quality zero finish with spot gloss on Cruise, the moneybag/money and the plane on the front. Just a pity about no title :(

    PQ on the 4K UHD is reportedly superior over the 1080p feature.

    As a person who has seen the film ....... can anyone explain the design on this? My only guess is is not what you see in the red and more so the white, ie. supposed to be coke lines?

    I haven't seen the movie but I'm guessing coke lines in the american flag.

    Similar to this image for a steelbook with "American" as the first word in the title like so many before.
    I don't know if coke plays a role in this. Haven't seen this one either.

    not all 4K discs would always look better than blu-rays, actually a lot of titles are worse than blu-rays... there're a lot of factors, mostly about the sources, you can film the movie and end up with 4K sources but studios always did VFX in 2K (cause it's cheaper) so the disc may ended up in 2Ki ... my point is it's just (mostly) hit or miss (for now) for 4K...

    Wow! Never knew that.

    Not owning a 4K TV myself, I just assumed it was meant to be the next step in PQ. Especially after splashing out on expensive high-end kit to play it on!

    I guess it's like lazy studios not properly mastering Blu Rays in the early days. Some were only marginally better than their DVD counterpart.........

    Well then I hope that 4K Blade Runner 2049 disc you're eager to watch turns out great! :)

    I find things a little worrying that we now have to resort to buying custom spines when these used to become as standard on a Steelbook

    many premium retailers include them now as a bonus. you aren't "buying" them technically as they are normally even called a gift

    But yes if you want you can buy from individuals who make them as well
