A Blu-ray only release also includes a slipcover


As usual with StudioCanal after the 4K collector's edition sells out they will do a standard 4K/Blu-ray amaray release

Zavvi has listed that the 3 discs are 4K, Blu-ray and DVD. Odd since the images show 2 Blu-ray discs and a 4K disc.

Curious about the 3rd disc since the SteelBook only contains 2 discs. Also I personally find it odd that the price of this CE is the same price as the True Romance CE but True Romance had a SteelBook when this doesn't.

Is there a Howling collection?
I lost count on how many Howling movies there are, 8 or 9?

Anyone know of a nice box set of the entire franchise?

Collector edition it might be
4K UHD
Blu-ray
DVD

Amazon posted the mockup image first Zavvi and HMV just copied it
It's likely meant to show UHD/Blu-ray/DVD discs and not UHD and 2 Blu-ray discs
Disc with Artwork TBC is likely the DVD

As the Steelbook is only 2 discs then the third disc in collector's edition must be a DVD
If the extras was on a separate Blu-ray and Film on seperate Blu-ray then Steelbook would have to be 3 Discs

The info on Amazon/Zavvi/HMV websites mention includes DVD

So what might your guess be as to what is on the DVD?
