I'll grab this if it includes the Ulysses Cut.
Ulysses Cut is exclusive to the Arrow Video releases both Standard and the Limited edition
Arrow licensed the Ulysses Cut from Universal

The Universal 4K UHD Steelbook has same content as the existing UK 4K UHD Amaray release.
DISC ONE (4K UHD)
* The Film - Theatrical Cut (2160p)
* The Film - US TV Cut (1080p)

DISC TWO (Blu-ray)
* The Film - Theatrical Cut

No extras on Universal release apart from trailer

Arrow Video Limited Edition release is the best as that has all 3 cuts of the film and lot of extras

If you want Ulysses Cut get either of the Arrow Video Limited or Standard releases
Limited Edition

Standard Edition

Slightly less minimalist than these images which admittedly on a mug look neat ...

In terms of the different cuts of the film am I right in thinking the following:

Theatrical cut - standard cinema release
TV cut - about an extra 40 minutes of footage compared to the theatrical cut but has some language and violence removed
Ulysses cut - as the TV cut but with the language and violence restored.

Correct. The UC is essentially the US TV (or extended, same thing) cut with a few swear words and flecks of blood etc.. restored from the original European theatrical cut of the film.
Honestly there is very little difference between this cut and the UC, which unless you're a uberfan of the film or someone pointed bits out to you scene by scene, would you likely realise.

The US TV cut is included on the UHD bluray in 1080p, and imo it is great quality and very similar to the arrow copy, HOWEVER.. the audio is lossy DTS, which to me is just not acceptable :vomit:

Ordered with code earlier too. Cex are offering 13quid (which is all it cost me initially anyway) for the standard 4k, so a net £9 buy. Happy with that :D

Just for my sanity, I tested out the extended cut on the UHD earlier vs the arrow Ulysses cut. Unsurprisingly the PQ/SQ on arrow's is considerably better. So I'll be hanging onto that one to pop in here :thumbs:
