"limited" to 10k copies.. Man, I wish this is how limited the copies would be for any Blufans releases

10k is small in the USA but in reality its at least big enough to know the movies wont sell out immediately. (least barring Disney/Marvel) Which is kinda nice as you can at least wait for the first price drop.

This one looks classy.

Awesome one of the few movies I haven’t upgraded from DVD. Too bad there is no new extras but new remaster with the cover art is an insta-purchase.

Strange how it's up on amazon already but can't seem to find any mention of it at all on Shout Factorys own site?
It's a Shout Factory release from Shout/MGM
It's not a scream factory or shout select release

Shout announced the release on the Shout Factory Facebook page with the purchase link to Amazon

Previous other release from Shout/MGM was Fargo Steelbook

I'm sure at some stage it will be listed on the shout factory website

I assume its the same release, but Best Buy has a Platoon steelbook releasing the same day for $19.99. But their listing doesn't mention 4k

This steelbook is a Blu-ray
It's a 4K scan restoration
Shout Factory releases are available from all USA retailers
Some list for sale after release date

Best Buy listing has Studio Shout Factory
