Release Schedule (SUBJECT TO APPROVALS!) - We would like to let you know our direction over the next few releases and as stated above, these are subject to approvals. We are taking on board suggestions of movies without steelbook releases but we need some sort of foot in the market before doing so. However, some of those titles have already been brought up in a meeting today, so hopefully we can progress further with those soon.

This schedule is planned to have full Exclusive SteelBook designs (Not just flipped artwork exclusivity). All would feature the same setup as Shaun of the Dead; Full Slip, Lenticular & Blu Box.

Casino EE 002
Hot Fuzz EE 003
Oblivion EE 004
The Worlds End 005

Thank you to everyone supporting us, please let us know you thoughts on the titles above!!

This art



is still by far the best IMO, only reason I don't own it is because horizontal steelbooks are evil. Honestly would've been OK with this same thing flipped over like Shaun of the Dead's. EB's isn't too bad, although I do think it feels slightly weird with just Simon Pegg on the cover.
 
The very first release hasn't even got a fixed release date...And we are supposed to chat about the "MAYBE" next 4?
Exactly.

What really annoyed me about them was the sheer arrogance as they told me they were "better placed with the studios than HMV"; yet couldn't even confirm they had all the Cornettos, and want payment up front for something that hasn't even got a release date :(

Woah, Title is WAAAAY TOO CLOSE to the top of the steelbook. It all looks very cramped and amateurish :(

Can we see the spine? If it doesn't match Sean of the Dead's spine I may cancel too, No point if these don't look like a set (like your Mummy steelbooks)

EDIT: I agree with @virkia a vertical version of the Horizontal release is INFINITELY more preferable to this. You did it with Sean of the Dead why not with this? Very seriously considering cancelling if not too late?

Just realised this says exclusive no.3 In the title

If Shaun is no.1 and mummy is blu pick what's no.2?

It seems like your gettin ahead of yourselves EB, planning too much which could be the actual reason for the delay on Shaun. You've already commented on releasing a certain amount each year is not sustainable and to me looks like you might be biting off more than you can chew, hope I'm wrong

Just saying
Hello,

All releases are possibles/pending. therefore the collection number of the release can change. This is why we have said before that posting pending artwork is not effecting Shaun of The Dead. Shaun of The Dead is at a completely different stage. EverythingBlu is a small team but different people deal with different stages of the releases. Therefore we can either show the community pending art and our ideas and members must realise it is not the reason Shaun is delayed or effecting it in anyway OR we don't show what we are doing in the background at all. We thought it would be good to show the community so they can have their say, like in finishes etc. So we can hopefully bring you a product that the majority of you had input with.

Kind Regards
EverythingBlu

Hello,

Please could you show us where this comment was made by EverythingBlu? As i myself am not aware of this being said. Referring to "better placed with studios than HMV".

Also, Shaun of the Dead had a release date at pre-order. It was not TBA.

Thanks.

Cancelled first one. Will wait for the inevitable Cornetto trilogy box
Hello,

We plan to create our Blu Box Edition for each of them (pending approval) The Shaun of The Dead Blu Box is now down to only 10 in stock. This is how we would put the trilogy together.

Thanks

I assume the Blu Box be of similar design so they all look similar on the shelf, such as how FAC do their hardboxes and Zeta's etc? What irritates me more is when they all look different. Such as how Kimchi did their tall skinny and fat slips

@EverythingBlu - EB when SOD project is out of the way, when do you approximately plan to have these ready for pre-orders? June, August?
Hello,

Our priority is Shaun right now. We can't give a guess at when Hot Fuzz would go live for pre-orders due to yet being approved. We will make the best judgement as to when it should go live, to make sure we avoid any delays with the release.

Thanks
EverythingBlu

Take as long as you need.
You won't be saying that when your PayPal protection goes over > they can take as long as they want, that's cool, but don't take money upfront. if there's another delay next month that will be nearly 6 months with my money.

All is forgiven on this release as its their first etc and they will hopefully learn from mistakes but I won't be buying the next one In the cornetto trilogy until we have proper dates.
More delays with this or with other releases will only affect their reputation

Hello,

Yes this will be plan. The overall design will follow a similar template. We understand that in reality, 99% of the time, it's the spine that is seen the most.

Thanks

Okay, thanks for that

Well Aslong as its all for feedback then cool.

I agree about the title needs to be lower, debossed will most likely work better. And personally I don't mind the 2 different arts on the front and back of the steel. Not every steel has to join on from the front art.
Infact some of the best don't at all - many of the zavvi Disney animation steels are like that and work very well (with from art and then back art like a scene form the film with a different colour scheme)

@EverythingBlu Is this design final? It's horrendous. As others have said the title is far too close to the top.

Will the spine of the steelbook its self align with Sean of the Dead's? As in will the universal and BuRay logos be the same same position and alignment?

The art looks like a really bad photoshop.

I don't care about the Sean of the Dead delay (although I do think announcing a 3 week delay the day before "release" is bullshit. You couldn't have announced it earlier?) but if this is the final art I'm going to have to cancel. I can't overstate how amateurish this product looks

EDIT: A quick look at the official posters for the film reinforces how bad this photoshop is. Why the hell is it only Simon on the cover? The official posters are infinitely better. When will we know if this is final? Hopefully before Sean ships
