    ADDITIONAL INFORMATION FROM SCREAM FACTORY

    Even being as detailed as we could here, we anticipate that there are questions you may still have about the cuts of the film. Our Blu-ray producer has provided a couple of Q&As that we felt might come up and that some may be curious about:

    Q: Is the U.S. Theatrical version a new transfer?
    A: Unfortunately, we were not able to do a new transfer of the theatrical cut (which was
    provided by our partners at Universal). However, we did do additional color correction.

    Q: Why is the International version a 4K transfer and not the Director's Cut?
    A: Our original intention was to do a new 4K scan on the director's cut, so we started with
    elements that were available in the MGM vault. Unfortunately, we could not find all of the
    additional footage (film and audio) for the 96 minute Director's Cut.

    It was just to give an idea of what the slip will look like. The pic is from the Amazon listing.

    In fairness all they have to do is change the 2 to a 3 on the spine. Artwork is the same as the Amaray otherwise.

    I would wait until Scream Factory release the slipcover artwork
    Looks like either BD copied amazon or amazon copied BD for the image :LOL:


    The original poster artwork of Army of Darkness will be on the reverse sleeve in the Blu-ray Case

    They've changed the Amaray art to that of the UK steelbook.

    Slipcover looks to be unchanged (apart from the '2 disc' on the spine)

    That's the reverse amaray art (original poster artwork) which was always included. The flip side of it will be the same as the new commissioned slipcase art

    I went ahead and asked for them. I have not even watched the discs yet. What was the problem?

    Is the German Koch Media release better? I watched the Director's cut of that set and remember it looking greatly improved over the Dvd versions I'd seen before, so is the DC on this new release an improvement?
