Same, was super excited for it, but given the amount of time that's passed, I think they may have abandoned it unfortunately.
All the steelbook love that Shane Black's The Predator is getting should be switched with The Nice Guys. The latter is a great film... while the former is not. Put the love where it belongs!!

Sadly it appears that now they're only focusing on underwhelming rehashes of movies they got the right to release and gave proper treatment back then -- "lately" The Lobster, Miss Sloane, and Loving Vincent 2nd eds. popped up. Putting them under their misguiding guise of "creative edition line". LOL. A bit of creativity was definitely included in the first 2-3 releases of this line, but after that they were all blatant milking-the-cow attempts.

It's a real pity since The Blu happened to show great approach and style (thinking e.g. of Memento or Whiplash steelbooks) but also their 1st ed. scanavo case + full slip were great (Attila Marcel, Inside Llewyn Davis, Room, Manchester by The Sea...). I really hope they will be soon back in the business with same power as before. I miss them

Other than the odd repackaging of previous releases, The Blu appears to be stuck in neutral. Certainly looks like they’re out of the Steelbook game, which is sad, their premiums are pretty classy.

It is a shame. They were genuinely my favourite steel editions/ premium company. They were special like PA. Then manta came along and took that mantle for me. I think if blu came back and PA were more productive with steels then they would both be above manta but for now. Nah

As far as I remember they have been working on a premium steelbook for the Suspiria remake. Perhaps this title is more challenging to deal with and takes much longer than usual.

The design company (4rest; IG handle is @4rest_design) that handled The Blu is also designing The On. So take that for whatever it’s worth - good or bad. It also appears that they had some hand in the recent Tully release for Art Crafts. They’re still producing stuff just under a different name. Perhaps KimchiDVD has priority on The On titles for now.
