Oh man, I'll have to get this for the sequel. Don't much care for Mariachi, and Desperado is getting its own steelbook release.
 
If you already own last two movies of trilogy buying this one is pointless especially since thise are old scans. Just get UHD of Desperado on its own.
 
What are the chances of this coming to UK? 100% in if it does!
Might be USA/Canada only
Have to wait until tomorrow to find out if UK also

Arrow Films UK August release will be officially be announced on Friday from 3PM UK time
I might post details about 10 to 15 min before arrow announce on Friday as listings sometimes show on arrow UK website before 3pm

It's likely Silence of the Lambs 4K will be a UK release but that's still to be confirmed

Just remembered it's actually quite cheap to order from their US site anyway (I did so with Warriors), so no real biggie if it doesn't turn up here.

Shows how out of the loop I am nowadays... had no idea they were doing SOTL :OMG:

Last time i was trying to order a restock of warriors the p&p had gone up considerably to uk, that combined with dubious packing was a dealbreaker

I just checked and standard delivery is still fairly cheap for me... I tested it with a couple different editions and the shipping rate varied between about $6-$8. Even with a couple items in my basket it was never more than $8. Can't remember exactly how long it took for my Warriors order to arrive, but it was certainly quicker than I expected IIRC. I also don't recall what the packaging was like unfortunately (most likely the same Zavvi/Arrow UK type stuff), but I know my copy is thankfully mint!
