    I’d say this will be for the upcoming sequel rather than the original

    HMVs exclusives have been horrible this year, so I'm not exactly hopeful about this one.

    Man that would be misleading considering the picture shows the board game from the original movie. The new 'Jumanji' movie doesn't even include a magical board game. They replaced it with a gameconsole.

    If this is for the remake / reimagining :vomit: , easy pass. Haven't seen the movie, but the trailer was more than enough to put me off. Looks awful

    ‘Something special’ would be the original in my opinion. Not the new one.

    I’ve never known HMV to advertise a steelbook before the film is even released in the cinema either...

    I love the original release. But if this turns out to be 4K then i will jump on it.

    For £14.99 I might as well pay pretty much the same price and get the 4K Best Buy steelbook

    Looks great and is more accurate to the actual board game design, but the original steel is good enough for me.

    This works out great. My original Jumanji steelbook is pretty scratched on the back (due to me not looking after it) and I do really like this design. Pre-ordered!

    US version looks perfect so hopefully HMV can confirm if its embossed like the US version.

    Haven't got a 4k set up so being HMV is better for me.

    It is embossed and glossy. I already saw first hand pictures of the spanish steelbook, which will be identical to the the rest of Europe. SONY is doing an awesome job with their steelbooks.
