    From Amazon.uk:
    SYNOPSIS: With the etching onto glass of a single word "MABUSE" Berlin reawakens into a nightmare. Fritz Lang's electrifying Das Testament des Dr. Mabuse [The Testament of Dr. Mabuse] is the astonishing second instalment in the German master's legendary Mabuse series, a film that puts image and sound into an hypnotic arrangement unlike anything seen or heard in the cinema before or since.

    It's been eleven years since the downfall of arch-criminal and master-of-disguise Dr. Mabuse (Rudolf Klein-Rogge), now sequestered in an asylum under the watchful eye of one Professor Baum (Oskar Beregi). Mabuse exists in a state of "catatonic graphomania", his only action the irrepressible scribbling of blueprints that would realise a seemingly theoretical "Empire of Crime". But when a series of violent events courses through the city, police and populace alike start asking themselves with increasing panic: "Who is behind all this?!" The answer borders on the realm of the impossible...

    Not only a follow-up to Lang's earlier Dr. Mabuse, der Spieler. [Dr. Mabuse: The Gambler], but also, with the presence of Otto Wernicke's Police Commissioner Lohmann, a semi-sequel to Lang's immortal masterpiece M, Das Testament des Dr. Mabuse is itself considered by many to be Lang s greatest achievement a work of terrible and practically supernatural power that seems to have prophesied the implications of the Nazi scourge. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present Das Testament des Dr. Mabuse for the very first time on Blu-ray, in a Dual Format (Blu-ray + DVD) edition and limited edition SteelBook.

    SPECIAL DUAL FORMAT (BLU-RAY + DVD) EDITION FEATURES:
    • HD transfer of the film presented in its original aspect ratio, in 1080p on the Blu-ray
    • Original German-language intertitles with optional English-language subtitles
    • Feature-length audio commentary by film scholar and Fritz Lang expert David Kalat
    • Lavish booklet featuring the words of Fritz Lang, rare archival imagery, and more...

    Gotta get this! News of this steelbook has just made me dig out my Propaganda CD (A Secret Wish) and play this track: (sings)He's devoted to the devil/fascinated by crime/A glamorous death is his destination/Eternal passion his gain(/sings).

    You probably have to be a child of the 80s to know what i'm on about.

    You can also probably tell I'm quite excited about this getting the SB treatment. Absolutely awesome news and a day 1 purchase!

    I'm guessing artwork will be as carllencs post but clean artwork without banner. I'm hoping anyway, love that cover!

    I wouldn't be so sure. They are using different art for Island of Lost Souls and Cleopatra. And it's the only release from yesterday's announcements that doesn't have artwork so they must be still working on it.

    I'm sure the artwork is going to be great - especially if the other releases are anything to go by. Pre-ordered mine anyway!

    "The TESTAMENT SteelBook will look similar to the regular edition, but no logotype. We'll post the image shortly."
