Yes, indeed, and you got me thinking about steelbook releases of films that have already been released here - films that are amongst the first BD releases in the U.K. (i.e. before 2008) with this one released on the 3/12/07 with the SB coming on the 21/3/16.Wow an old'n that I don't already have, could be up for this after the inevitable price drop.

Basically another in a LONG LINE of re-releases . . . which is no bad thing and I ain't complainin' (see re-release titles below if interested - if not interested just ignore and skip this post.
Makes me wonder if all these old discs being re-packaged in shiny or not so shiny new packaging have been lying around in warehouses around the country since whenever and in some cases for up to nine years . . . LOL.
