Nice, will be happy to have a 4K edition of this great movie— which I rewatched in March 2020, like a few people :D

I only have the French steelbook: G1 + printed banner = (good) old days :LOL:

Though I wish this 4K edition would reuse that art instead: indeed it feels a bit empty to just have city names on the front— that's back art material. For the front I expected something more.

Could turn out better in hand considering that finish. Might have to go for this
 
This might be 2 Discs release UHD and Blu-ray going by the SteelBook mock up inside artwork

TBC when released and in hand with customers if dual format

It was more akin to Ebola Virus.
Could you be thinking of Outbreak with Dustin Hoffman/ Morgan Freeman? That was an Ebola outbreak if I recall correctly. Contagion kicked off in a wet market in Macau I think? Outbreak was a big Hollywood disaster movie type thing, whilst Contagion was more of a stark procedural (been a while so might need to rewatch to be sure). :thumbs:

Nope, you're right. A lot of it was similar to COVID and how it spread. Good film to watch post 2020.

Nothing like that for DVD collectors.

Exactly what I was thinking. This French steelbook actually has that on the back, only no inner art.

Is this the season of "dead Gwyneth Paltrow" movies?! :hilarious:

But that's how most vriuses spread.
At the time of the making of the film- bird flu and ebola were the viruses in the news, and the ones they would be aping.
(the symptoms of the virus in the film were much more like ebola- with hemorraging from orafices)

Ah fair enough. I guess the way the film portrayed the speed of the virus spreading was eerily similar to how COVID quickly spreaded (across the world).
