Wonder if this will have the border that the Zavvi version has?

I have the Zavvi steel with the German mediabook theatrical version in so I'm pretty set

Hopefully no to both. The border is wasted space unless there is embossing, which I doubt. and imo slipcovers with the exact same art as the Steelbook are a waste of materials.
I agree with both points, although the title is at least embossed on the UK version.

I agree too, I wish the Zavvi version didnt have the border, the front art has so much blank space around it, the should have debossed the title and had the art fill the whole front

As you know the reason for a framing border is to allow embossed artwork & title or just the title to stand proud against a recessed central panel:-

Reason for slipcase art matching steelbook art on most of the steelbooks w/ slipcases collection?
Who can say . . . seems to be a distributor thingy with Paramount slips matching their steels and Universal not.

Anyway, considering the slips didn't add a penny to the cost I look upon them as 'freebies'.

Steel/slip art - Paramount the same . . . Universal different

A few people on Reddit are saying their preorders were cancelled today. Anyone else having that issue?

Edit: I just talked to fye and they said the release date is July 9th in their system. Website listing is for today; so it must’ve been bumped back and not updated.

I just checked my order and it says "Shipping Status: Complete".

Update: I just checked my email and sure enough I received a cancellation notice. (n)
