The first 4K Steelbook!
Too bad such a historic moment is marred by a mediocre movie!
Nice! I'm getting my UHD player delivered today so I will definitely pick this up. I hope the trend of adding the 4k disc to steelbooks continues.
I've not seen it yet, I'm hoping it's decent!
It is, if you don't expect much at all
would rather have 3D than 4K
I really don't consider this a 4K Steelbook. It's a WWA Steelbook and they are just adding a 4K disc in the case with the blu-ray.
As long as they distinguish the Steelbook when it has no data card unsealed then I will get interested.
Isn't that like requiring every steelbook that comes with a 3D disc in it to say "3D" on the steelbook somewhere? I highly doubt that they will design another steelbook just for the 4k release. The 4k disc is the attraction. If you throw away the j-card, then I guess you have to open up the steelbook to see which disc is inside.
I may easily be wrong; maybe they will do something different. But considering how little interest/money this movie gathered, I doubt it.
The pricing makes it a no brainier for those collecting 4K UHD Blu-ray movies. Day 1 purchase for me too
I think it's the closest you will get for a while. I can't see them designing a Steelbook just for 4K yet as the market isn't that big. All 4K Blu-ray's come with a Blu-ray anyway so I still class this as the first 4K Steelbook.
Well I hope they at least put 4K on the spine.
The problem I have with this is if somone has an opened one, there is no way to ever tell if it was the 4K steelbook. At least with the first Blu-ray steelbook there was no ifs ands or butts. So until we actually get a true steelbook 4K this is not even worth hyping IMO.
I think there's a good chance they will. Surely they will want to let people know that there is an UHD in there. It may be just written on the data sheet though. We will see!
First 4K steelbook? It would've been nice if it was Deadpool or BvS...oh well
At least we got Emily Blunt
Same as the WWA release?
Seeing there is also another exclusive SteelBook release for the regular blu-ray edition from Best Buy, it is very likely going to be different whether in artwork, title, stickers, slip or any combo
They better not dare writing **** all over my steels!
I would prefer to have a steel with both 4k and 3d bluray. The full package.
It doesn't look like it's going to happen. Most of the studios are selling 3D and 4K discs seperately.
