    UK steel looked better. The title font seemed off.

    Agreed... although this will be a Capelight Pictures release, so it should at least have a great finish.

    And no English subs.

    That's usually down to the licensor rather than Capelight, as you'll find some of their releases do actually have English subs.

    You feel comfortable generalizing about the SteelBook finish but don't like my generalization about their subtitle history? Whatevs.

    Um, OK... not sure what your problem is. I was simply providing information that was passed on to me from Capelight themselves in regards to subs.

    Examples of Capelight releases with English subtitles: Mojin - The Lost Legend, Hardcore, The Boondock Saints, Der Babadook, The Signal, Enemy, Re-Animator I + II, ..., Chained, Monsters, Infestation.

    True, not all of their releases come with English subtitles, e.g., Attraction, Infini, and I'm sure there are more that I don't know about (in both categories).

    If I were to generalize based on Capelight's past releases, I couldn't say that this release won't include English subtitles.

    But until we know for sure, it's all idle speculation, anyway :)

    Looks like a blend of embossing on the character and rocks, with debossing to the title. Very nice! :hungry:

    Is this actually confirmed or just something Amazon says on the website? Because what Amazon lists is not necesarily final.

    No subs, as predicted. Sad as it includes the 3D version, which I really wanted. Ordered it anyway, because I like the Steel.
