Was wondering when and where this Steel would turn up which was showcased in the FilmArena King Kong a lil while ago. Its starting to grow on me even with the missing title but not completely sold on it just yet as I do really like my original glossy Zavvi Steelbook.

Nice art. Think I prefer it to the one released a few years ago.

I also assume this is the one EB will use

I actually think the last release was one of those rare occasions where they really nailed it already - crisp, colourful art and a nice gloss finish. With that in mind a re-release seems pretty pointless to me when there are so many titles with "meh" art or no steelbook at all. As for the 4K disc, I really couldn't give a fig - but if I did I'd just pop a separate 4k purchase into the original steelbook.

That's what I've already done, so no interest in this release at all. The 4K Amaray release also came with the bonus blu-ray disc, which I see IS being included this time. So I got that as well and passed on the 4K Amaray with just the spare blu-ray copy of the film in it. My one-disc blu-ray Steelbook now contains 3 discs - the 4K, blu-ray and bonus disc! :)

Does anyone know if this 4k disc will have Romanian subs? I own the US 4K already.

OK, so it was one of the original posters ...

but still seems to me more suited to the back cover and together with the unnecessarily b&w inside art - the great (symbolic) sunset image looking so much better in colour ...

... consequently don't find this steelbook as desirable as it could/should have been.

Used as a cover on an Amazon exclusive DVD back in 2006 (where you can see the space left for the title)... if an artist is told to leave space I think they should put a title on, if it is meant as a plain 'arty' cover with no title tell the artist so they don't leave space... however I must admit I like it!
