    I'm honestly not too fussed about 4k mate... yes it's better than blu-ray, but only slightly IMO, so for me it's not really worth the upgrade, especially as it's not a film I'd watch on a regular basis -- I haven't even watched my Futurepak blu-ray since buying it lol.

    Yeah, i think you're right about the upgrade from standard blu to 4k pq, in my expeience, too, it's hardly noticeable.........unless of course the previous release is diabolical. Still, Carrie is a favourite of mine so i'll dip again for it.

    It's still available to pre order with Amazon £22.99

    It is though a limited edition release that will be sold out with all retailers once they have sold out their allocation Arrow Films gave them
    It's sold out with Arrow Films as in no more stock available beside the already allocated stock given to retailers.
    Once the retailers sell out that stock it will be gone

    A standard edition though without the Slipbox and Poster and Booklet will be available sometime next year

    The MGM Blu-ray release picture quality is not that great and did need a decent remaster

    The Scream Factory and Arrow Video release it's a big difference in picture quality
    I have both the MGM and Scream Factory release the difference is huge improvement

    Arrow Video release is the same 4K remastered Scan as Scream Factory release with a new encode done by Arrow

    The extras are also lot better on both Scream Factory and Arrow Films release

    Especially not on my sad excuse of a TV lol. Haha nah, I opened it as soon as it arrived. ;)

    Exactly, it's nothing like the DVD to Blu-ray upgrade... the difference there is massive! Apparently you also need a big-ish TV to really notice the difference with 4K... my current TV isn't even 30" lol. :bag:

    4K Scan remastering is not the same thing as 4K UHD or 4K Video you don't need a 4K TV or big TV to notice the difference

    It's a huge improvement over the MGM Blu-ray you would notice the difference even on a 14" TV

    Amazon UK is Sold Out for now
    It looks like it's going in and out of stock at various stages likely due to order cancellations been made available

    If you not got this I expect this will also go sold out with Zavvi and HMV soon

    I already have this on pre order since it was first live to order in September I expect my order will be dispatched in next few days
    Most of my amazon orders where I pick free shipping have been dispatched after release date recently it don't affect delivery date as it's delivered in 1-2 days after dispatch

    4k is worth it if it's a film done totally on film but modern "films" are a let down because most are 2k or 3k so they are just upscales to 4k So you have a weird situation in which the 1950's Ben Hur will look amazing in 4k but a modern blockbuster like The Avengers Civil War will not benefit one jot. So in theory the likes of Carrie should look amazing in 4k.

    Got mine from HMV this morning, preeeeeeeeeeeetty damn happy with it.

    Also I think it's time to stop pre-ordering from Amazon, because HMV have been much more reliable every single time.

    Got mine today too (from amazon)
    The slipbox feels nice and sturdy & the poster is a nice addition. I've not checked out the picture quality of the disc yet though.

    Picture Quality is better than Scream Factory release
    Arrow Video did a new encode of the same remaster
