    Zavvi's description on the Twitter feed says it includes Covenant.

    HMV is listing an Exclusive Steelbook for Covenant - unsure if that means they have their own or if that means they have the UK exclusive rights to one.

    I have the link for the 4K one, but not the regular BD. They might have consolidated it as a 4K combo. Their Twitter feed indicated otherwise a few days ago.

    Yeah, this morning I got an email from Zavvi stating that Covenant was the sixth movie. Seems weird to me to do it this way, but I'm not buying it regardless.

    New artwork for the Alien collection has been posted. Not much better than the other one.

    Amadeus
    Purchase


    Street Date: June 26, 2017

    Studio: Warner Bros

    Region: Free

    Zavvi Description: Zavvi Exclusive Limited Edition Steelbook (Limited to 1000 Copies) Blu-ray

    Extras: NA

    Technical Info: Dolby TrueHD 5.1, AR 2.41:1, 1 BD-50 Disc

    Synopsis: Now seen in a Director’s Cut including 20 minutes of scenes not seen in its original release, Amadeus remains a screen triumph: as sumptuous period epic, as soaring celebration of the music of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and as the winner of 8 Academy Awards®**, including Best Picture (produced by Saul Zaentz), Actor (F. Murray Abraham), Director (Milos Forman) and Adapted Screenplay (Peter Shaffer, from his play). In 1781 Vienna, court composer Antonio Salieri (Abraham) is maddened with envy after discovering that the divine musical gifts he desires for himself have been bestowed on the bawdy, impish Mozart (Tom Hulce), whom he plots to destroy by any means necessary. And by means of cinematic craft and sublime music, we watch spellbound.

    Comments: Previous Releases are region-free, no reason to doubt this will be the same available disc.

    Zavvi has 'Alex Ross Universal Monsters' collection of 7 steels up. Basically, the classic black and white monster movies. Each is limited to 1000 copies, so I expect they'll disappear pretty fast.

    The Wolfman
    Frankenstein
    Bride of Frankenstein
    The Invisible Man
    Creature from the Black Lagoon
    The Mummy
    Dracula

    Each is currently going for $28.62 Canadian.

    Also Krawk, they have a new(?) shipping option. The standard one, which is under $2 CAN, and a free tracked delivery option. I went with the standard shipping option for safety, but I wonder if the tracked option might not be better? Maybe the packaging is worse, or it's slower, or something.
    Current Computer Rig; 6850k (OCed to 4.0GHz), MSI GTX 1080 Twin Frozr VI, Asus X99-A, 32GB 3200MHz Ram, 2x 500GB 850 EVOs SSDs (OS/Programs | High Priority Games), 1x6TB WD Black (Media), 1x4TB WD Black (Games). Bunch of externals.

    DIRECTOR-APPROVED LIMITED EDITION CONTENTS:

    Newly remastered 2K digital transfer of the film, approved by director Brian Yuzna
    High Definition Blu-ray (1080p)
    Original Stereo 2.0 audio (uncompressed PCM on the Blu-ray)

    Synopsis: IT IS A MATTER OF GOOD BREEDING. REALLY.

    Spot Gloss On The Title Treatment

    After producing Stuart Gordon’s hit Re-Animator, Brian Yuzna (Bride of Re-Animator, Return of the Living Dead III) turned his hand to directing with 1989’s Society, and gave birth to one of the ickiest, most original body horror shockers of all time.

    Teenager Bill Whitney (Billy Warlock) has always felt like the odd one out in his wealthy, upper-class Beverly Hills family. For some reason, he just doesn’t seem to fit in. But his sense of alienation takes a sinister turn when he hears an audio recording of his sister’s coming-out party, which seems to implicate his family and others in a bizarre, ritualistic orgy. And then there are the strange things he’s been seeing – glimpses of people with their bodies contorted impossibly out of shape… Is Bill going mad or is there something seriously amiss in his neighborhood?

    Packing stomach-churning grue and thought-provoking social commentary in equal measure, Society is a biting horror satire which culminates in one of the most gag-inducing “climaxes”’ in all of horror history.

    Comments: Is the same disc as from 2015 so it is region free.

    Transformers 5: The Last Knight
    Purchase


    Street Date: NA

    Studio: Paramount

    Region: NA

    Zavvi Description: 4K Ultra HD - Zavvi Exclusive Limited Edition Steelbook Blu-ray

    Extras: This Steebook Also Includes The Standard Blu-ray Version

    Technical Info: NA

    Synopsis: The Last Knight shatters the core myths of the Transformers franchise, and redefines what it means to be a hero. Humans and Transformers are at war, Optimus Prime is gone. The key to saving our future lies buried in the secrets of the past, in the hidden history of Transformers on Earth. Saving our world falls upon the shoulders of an unlikely alliance: Cade Yeager (Mark Wahlberg); Bumblebee; an English Lord (Sir Anthony Hopkins); and an Oxford Professor (Laura Haddock). There comes a moment in everyone’s life when we are called upon to make a difference. In Transformers: The Last Knight, the hunted will become heroes. Heroes will become villains. Only one world will survive: theirs, or ours.

    Comments: Region Coding - 4K = region free (of course,) regular BD likely AB or free. Apparently people in the UK pounce all over this franchise as it sold out almost instantly. Expect them to open up a limited amount as release date gets closer.

    Synopsis: Joss Whedon, the Oscar®* and Emmy®-nominated writer/director behind Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel, now applies his trademark wit in this breathtaking epic. Captain Malcolm Reynolds, a hardened veteran (on the losing side) of a galactic civil war, now ekes out a living aboard his ship, Serenity. He leads a small, eclectic crew, but when Mal takes on two new passengers - a young doctor and his telepathic sister - he gets much more than he bargained for. The pair are fugitives from the coalition dominating the universe, and so Serenity finds itself caught between the unstoppable military force of the Alliance, the horrific, cannibalistic fury of the Reavers - and another danger lurking at the very heart of the spaceship...

    Comments: Previous releases are region free, no reason to believe Universal (a region-free friendly company) would release a different disc just to region lock it.
