The art has been updated matching the North American SteelBook. This is priced at $15 more than Best Buy Canada...sheesh!

finally watched this the other night and if I’m honest I really don’t understand the bad reviews and zero love. Was actually decent and pretty messed up in places for the x men world.
Much better than origins, apocalypse and dark Phoenix. Some may even say better than x men 3 too. But honestly no where as bad as some make it out to be.

I liked that although its connected to x men it feels like it’s own little world. I loved the tone and the more adult way it went. Shame we won’t see more into this small world

for The Americas in Alberta, Canada (Scanavo North America Ltd.)
for Europe in Denmark (Scanavo A/S)
and for the Far East in Kowloon, Hong Kong (Scanavo Manufacturing Hong Kong Ltd.)

Just seen an unboxing of the US copy of this. Flat and matte, possibly zero finish. Either way, doesn't look all that great. Front isn't a very high res image, but atleast it isn't bare metal. More of a dull dark grey than a silver in hand.

I'll likely cancel my zavvi preorder, may pick it up later down the line if this hits the bargain basket. Enjoyed the film more on a second watch though, so that's a plus.

Yeah, just watched this myself and I enjoyed it. Some cool sequences in it. I like the way the trailer didn't give too much away for a change.

I take it by your comment there's not going to be any follow up then?

Unfortunately with the Disney merger I'd say that trip has well and truely sailed. Honestly I was a little shocked it actually got a theatrical release.

Yeah I’m sure I’ve read that Fiege has said that’s it for that x men world now (from fox) since the merger and that they will be starting again with them over the next few years with the MCU and solo movies. There’s been a lot of talk for certain castings for Logan and cyclops etc

Finish on the FNAC release will be spot glossed according to Steelbook.com

I'm assuming this one will be the same for an EU release.

Although I'm struggling to see what they can actually spot gloss. Especially the front as it's all one image.

So that would leave just the 'X' on the back cover :rolleyes:

Apart from the Pink Floyd references (music from "The Wall" in the trailer, same print style title etc.) ...

Was it the hostel steelbook where just the tiny knife handle was spot glossed? Lol

This will probably have the marvel logo at the bottom of the back art spot glossed.

I so wish that first poster was the art. I like this art but finish wise I can’t see anything working
