Hong Kong
Release date: Late September 2018 (TBC)
Price: TBA
Note: The special empty box is available only when you buy Box set and 1/4 Slip together.
Group buy: One Click + 1/4 slip COMPLETE PACKAGE
ONE CLICK - DOUBLE LENTICULAR - SINGLE LENTICULAR - FULL SLIP - QUARTER SLIP (Storage box NOT included)

Important Group Buy update
Official update for all group buy participants -

The licensing agreement for Black Panther, for unknown reasons, still has not been resolved and because of this Infinity War will now be being released first (roughly early December time). The licensing agreement for Black Panther is looking to be completed around November time but because of the other releases (infinity War, Greatest Showman, Three Billboards), Black Panther will not ship until January 2019 at the earliest.

Infinity War will ship with the same editions (1/4 slip + Box, One Click, DL, SL and full slip)

Group Buy members, we have a couple of options for you -

1. Transfer
Your Black Panther request will automatically be transferred to the same edition to that of Avengers: Infinity War. You will then be guaranteed a spot for Black Panther, which will be charged for again later on in the year (or potentially January 2019)

2. Refund
You can cancel your Black Panther request and be refunded. Please note that should you change your mind afterwards we cannot allow you to repurchase Black Panther. At this time there will not be a further GB for it (however this may change although not guaranteed)

3. Wait it out
Wait for Black Panther to be released. If you decide to wait it out, as a thank you we will enter you into a HDN sponsored prize draw.

The official GB for Avengers: Infinity War won't be live until November.

I will be sending this as a PM to all participants tomorrow too with the relevant instructions.

I don't even buy premium editions for Marvel movies, and yet I always look forward to seeing what BF come up with for them. :)

Since their Thor Ragnarok steelbook ended up being the exact same as my concept, I wonder what the chances are that we share the same taste in design for this one too...

Love it, would not be surprised if the artwork used is very close to yours.

There’s been a few reviews coming out of China that have been less than flattering.
Must be referring to the Chinese equivalent of IMDb scoring the film 6.7 and to these comments:-
"... not used to a film full of black people. Black Panther is black, all the major characters are black, a lot of scenes are black, the car-chasing scene is black — the blackness has really made me drowsy."

"When I entered the theater, a bunch of black people were fighting in the night… I’ve never been in a theater so dark that I couldn’t find my seat."

"The film is filled with black actors and actresses. Also, because the film’s colors are a bit dark, it’s nearly a torture for the eyes to watch the film’s 3D version in the theater."

"Even if the screen with the highest brightness is selected, the movie still looks dark."

Not helping that these recent films - with one thing in common - were not even granted a mainland release in China:-
Get Out, All Eyez On Me, Girls Trip, The Dark Tower, Marshall, Ride Along 2, Hidden Figures, The Best Man Wedding, Barbershop: The Next Cut, Suicide Squad, Central Intelligence

Many Chinese of course have historical and traditional attitudes towards race . . .
. . . and a modern example of eyebrow raising advertising can be seen here . . . although in reality just an inverse rip of the Italian ad.:-

As for the artwork: this one's been voted above others in a poll . . . with maybe something like this for back art:-

As for the WWA steelbook/poster: echoes of this style:-

This movie received universal acclaim, and the IMDB score is no doubt significantly tainted by racist trolls. This movie received amazing reviews.
Both its IMDb score and audience score on Rotten Tomatoes were affected by alt-right/anti-Disney basement dwellers. Same happened to A Wrinkle in Time, although Black Panther still did well enough to keep its scores relatively high. Wrinkle has it rough.

China kind of hates black people and we shouldn't even bat an eyelid in their direction, honestly.

Notice how the Asian posters all have T'Challa alone, and masked, while the American/everywhere else posters have the entire cast on display, unmasked.

Not the first time they've done something like that, either.

Bloody ridiculous that race still plays a part in cinema nowadays, especially in such a blockbuster franchise with superheroes.

Anyway, I'll join the queue for this with everybody else. Surely going to be a stunning set as usual.

I'm a big DC fan too.. but this 2nd infinity war trailer is better than whole Justice League movie. :D I'm sure infinity war will gross at least 2 billion $ worldwide.

You bet'cha! Infinity War will rake it in.
It looks absolutely amazing and I am already salivating over the inevitable variety of Premiums that will be offered for it. A Thanos lenti edition for example!
