I am still waiting for restock. Damn I need to change the delivery address but ZAVVI doesn't allow it, so had to cancel the preorder.

Didn't realise I had this sitting in my basket. Still let me order it. Taken a chance with the Reddit code and currently 'awaiting dispatch' though it says dispatch date 12th July.... If it turns up it turns up!

I was expecting I would get delivery today since it was dispatched early Wednesday morning
A lot of my Zavvi orders shipped on a Wed/Thur arrive on release date

Maybe I will get delivery Tuesday or Wednesday

I did though get delivery of the Collector's Edition from Amazon this morning


Steelbook looks fantastic looking forward to having it in my collection

The new extra An unending story - Scoring Basic Instinct is good
Jerry Goldsmith is one of my favourite film composers I have most of his film scores on CD or Vinyl

Hi Paul,

If I recall correctly, you have a region free Blu-ray player. Are you able to determine if the Blu-ray disc is region free?

Thank you.

Thank you.
Both Blu-ray Discs are Region B Locked

4K UHD Disc region free as usual
The extras that are on the Blu-ray disc are also on the UHD disc so you not missing anything if you have a UHD player

StudioCanal Blu-ray Discs majority are Region B as they only distribute their releases in UK/Europe/Australia

All other countries they licence out their films to other labels

If USA/Canada doing a release at some stage of the StudioCanal 4K remastered scan it will be from Lionsgate
As in Lionsgate licence the transfer from StudioCanal

Assume the bonus features on the 2nd blu-ray disc aren't also on the 4k are they paul? Just the ones from the feature disc?

hi and thanks.
The posted details cleary state region for this release as:
A
B
C
in fact the Blu Ray discs are both locked to region B. uhd 4k discs are not region locked (as everybody knows), so it was assumed this information referred to the 2 blu ray discs.

how do you expect your customers to make an informed decision on purchases when the website has incorrect information?

i am extremely dissatisfied with zavvi regarding this and am writing to let you know.

i would like to know how you would propose to remedy this situation, and would ask that you be a lot more careful with listing release details in the future.

sincerely,
