Anyone gotten sny feedback from studiocanal?
Studiocanal UK so far as I know not yet replied to customers who contacted them by email or those that used Twitter

The German and France Steeelbook discs has the new extras

UK release is meant to also have same discs content as it's advertised to be included in Studiocanal own press release for UK/France/Germany and listed on back of Slip in each country.

Studiocanal UK are going to eventually reply or just ignore customers
There will likely be a UK standard amaray release in 2023 with corrected discs

Also a possible Box Set of all Rambo films in 2023 in UK from StudioCanal

There will be a new Box Set of all 5 rambo films from Lionsgate USA in 2023 with first 3 films remastered with Dolby Vision and other new extras that Studiocanal don't have

I have the original first 4K slipcover release for this from studio canal in uk and it looks great. Are these new releases containing a new transfer? We’ve just had the zavvi EB and now this. Just thought it was the same transfer. If it is new, what have they done to the film because I thought it was as good as it could look. I know the main issue here is the new content but the film itself is more important to me personally and I want to own the best version.

Just had this back from studiocanal, there will be a disc replacement programme;

"Dear Sam,

Many thanks for your email. We are aware there was a production error on the Rambo 40th Anniversary Steelbook and that the 2 new extras were not included on the UHD disc:

A LONG ROAD: 40 YEARS OF FIRST BLOOD

THE HUNTER AND THE HUNTED: SCORING FIRST BLOOD

We will be implementing a disc replacement service early 2023.

Please be assured as soon as we have full details we will get back to you directly.

Kindest regards,

Studiocanal"

Undetermined. I haven't spoken to anyone who has the german/french copies to confirm if the transfer is different, just the extras. Tbh I expect it to be the same transfer though. SC are usually quite vocal about things like that in their press releases and they didn't mention anything.

The transfer should be the same, and DV logo is there by error.
The only difference are the extras.
I guess if rumors of a new US Boxset are true, these, and more bonus materials, will be there, even if I won't be able to get a replacement disc for these.
Arrow was great about that with their 12 Monkeys replacement discs, got both, one in US, one in UK.
