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.

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.

Spoiler

Street Date: October 2, 2017

Studio: Disney

Region: NA

Zavvi Description: Zavvi Exclusive Limited Edition Steelbook

Extras: Includes 2D version

Technical Info: NA

Synopsis: Captain Jack Sparrow finds the winds of ill-fortune blowing even more strongly when deadly ghost pirates led by his old nemesis, the terrifying Captain Salazar, escape from the Devil's Triangle, determined to kill every pirate at sea...including him. Captain Jack's only hope of survival lies in seeking out the legendary Trident of Poseidon, a powerful artifact that bestows upon its possessor total control over the seas.

Comments: UK Titles appears to be "Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar's Revenge." As is a Disney release one should expect it to be region-free :yay:

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.
