I’ll defo be in for this when it hits U.K.

Don’t care about the other 2 films and this looks better than the Mexico trilogy box set
 
Release dates are August for the new Arrow announcements fyi
 
God please.:happy:
All the announcements are supposed to be tomorrow 3pm U.K. time but this, the Mexico trilogy, clash & wrath of the titans and The Woman seemed to be leaked early. The picture Arrow used is a reference to silence of the lambs though

Yep. I saw the green fava beans. Fingers crossed it's a UK 4k finally. I don't mind if it's not a Steelbook to be honest, a UHD will do.

I love this Steel as well. Desperado is a fun film and better than the other two. Down for this.

USA releases get leaked by the Arrow Video Canada Distributor Unobstructed View on Thursdays
August releases actual dates will have later tonight.

UK releases will be announced on Friday at 3pm
 
Other two parts of Mexico trilogy are old scans so that sux. Don't see point of triligy announcment since it's old scan. Though having those in 4K was no go from start...
 
Note this might be USA/Canada only

Arrow have a licencing deal with Sony in USA but so far not yet in UK that is why previous sony films that got arrow releases was USA/Canada only

Sony releases in UK is handled by Elevation Sales it will depend if Sony UK have plans to do a 4K release themselves.
James Flower from arrow said a few months ago because Sony have shut down their home entertainment division in the UK they now have nobody to negotiate UK licensing with
So unless this has changed it will be USA/Canada only.

If it's USA/Canada only you will be able to order from Arrow Video USA store
