Zavvi Description: Alex Ross Collection - Zavvi Exclusive Steelbook

Extras: Varies

Technical Info: DTS-HD MA, AR Varies, 7 BD-50 Discs

Synopsis:

Frankenstein: Alex Ross Collection

Boris Karloff stars as the screen’s most tragic and iconic monster in what many consider to be the greatest horror film ever made. Dr. Frankenstein (Colin Clive) dares to tamper with the essential nature of life and death by creating a human monster (Karloff) out of lifeless body parts. Digitally restored in stunning high definition, this adaption of Mary Shelley’s classic novel by director James Whale and the compassionate portrayal of a creature groping for identity by Boris Karloff makes Frankenstein a timeless masterpiece.

Dracula: Alex Ross Collection

Although there have been numerous screen versions of Bram Stoker’s classic tale, Dracula, none is more enduring than this 1931 movie. Towering ominously among the shadows of the Carpathian Mountains, Castle Dracula strikes fear in the hearts of the Transylvanian villagers below. With the superb Bela Lugosi starring as the screen’s most popular vampire Count Dracula, the film’s eerie and chilling mood is enhanced by specialist horror director Tod Browning. Dracula remains a masterpiece not only of the genre, but for all time.

The Wolfman: Alex Ross Collection

Originally released in 1941, The Wolf Man introduced the world to a new Universal movie monster and redefined the mythology of the werewolf forever. Featuring a heartbreaking performance by Lon Chaney Jr. and groundbreaking make-up by Jack Pierce, The Wolf Man is the saga of Larry Talbot, a cursed man who transforms into a deadly werewolf when the moon is full. The dreamlike atmospheres, elaborate settings and chilling musical score combine to make The Wolf Man a masterpiece of the genre that you can now enjoy in stunning high definition.

The Invisible Man: Alex Ross Collection

Claude Rains delivers an unforgettable performance in his screen debut as a mysterious doctor who discovers a serum that makes him invisible. Covered by bandages and dark glasses, Rains arrives in a small English village and attempts to hide his amazing discovery, but the drug’s side effects slowly drive him to commit acts of unspeakable terror. Based on H.G. Wells’ classic novel and directed by the master of macabre, James Whale, The Invisible Man fueled a host of sequels and features revolutionary special effects that can now be admired in stunning high definition.

Bride of Frankenstein: Alex Ross Collection

The acclaimed sequel to the original Frankenstein, one of the most popular horror classics in film history, has now been restored in stunning high definition. The legendary Boris Karloff reprises his role as the screen’s most misunderstood monster, now longing for a mate of his own. The last horror film directed by James Whale features a haunting musical score that helps make The Bride of Frankenstein one of the finest and most touching thrillers of its era.

The Mummy (1932): Alex Ross Collection

Horror icon Boris Karloff stars in the original 1932 version of The Mummy in which a team of British archaeologists accidentally revives a mummified high priest after 3,700 years. Alive again, he sets out on an obsessive and deadly quest to find his lost love.

Creature From the Black Lagoon: Alex Ross Collection

Captured and imprisoned for scientific study, a living “amphibious missing link” becomes enamored with the head researcher’s female assistant. When the creature escapes and kidnaps the object of his affection, a crusade is launched to rescue her and cast the terrifying monster back to the depths from which he came. Featuring legendary makeup artist Bud Westmore’s brilliantly designed monster, Creature from the Black Lagoon is an enduring tribute to the imaginative genius of its Hollywood creators that can now be admired in stunning high definition.

List price on the non SteelBook collection for Universal Monsters is £14.99 on Amazon UK. Is it worth it to you to have these in SteelBook? The artwork is tasteful so they are pretty cool, but that's a decision you will have to make.

Street Date: TBA 2018

Studio: 20th Century Fox

Region: NA

Zavvi Description: Zavvi Exclusive Limited Edition Steelbook Blu-ray

Extras: NA

Technical Info: NA. ??? DTS-HD MA 5.1, 7.1, Atmos??? AR? 1 BD-50 Disc.

Synopsis: Kenneth Branagh directs and leads an all-star cast, including Johnny Depp, Penélope Cruz, Willem Dafoe and Judi Dench, in this stylish, suspenseful and thrilling mystery based on the best-selling novel by Agatha Christie. Everyone’s a suspect when a murder is committed on a lavish train ride, and a brilliant detective must race against time to solve the puzzle before the killer strikes again.

Comments: Region Coding Unknown. 20th Century Fox is hit and miss with region coding. You may want to opt and wait to see if a retailer such as Best Buy will release this in a 4K Combo SteelBook. This movie will be in 4K so this might be a factor.

Zavvi Description: Zavvi Exclusive Limited Edition

Extras: NA

Technical Info: NA

Synopsis: In Lucasfilm’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the Skywalker saga continues as the heroes of the UK’s biggest film of all time, The Force Awakens join the galactic legends in an epic adventure that unlocks age-old mysteries of the Force and shocking revelations of the past

Comments: Region Coding - 4K is a given, region free. 3D BD + 2D BD -- Probably region free based upon previous releases. If looking for the 3D release, the UK release is likely your best bet. If looking for 4K in the USA or Canada, one would expect Best Buy to offer it as a SteelBook option. You could always preorder this and cancel later once you get better info.

I grabbed the Last Jedi 3D + Shirt combo, as it was about 10 pounds cheaper than the 4K version. If I really want it in 4K, I can get that easily enough in NA, which is much less likely to get the option for 3D.

Though I heard the movie itself was rather meh.

Zavvi Description: 4K Ultra HD (Includes HD Version) - Zavvi Exclusive Limited Edition Steelbook Blu-ray

Extras: NA

Technical Info: TBA

Synopsis: In the brand new adventure Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, the tables are turned as four teenagers in detention are sucked into the world of Jumanji. When they discover an old video game console with a game they’ve never heard of, they are immediately thrust into the game’s jungle setting, into the bodies of their avatars, played by Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart, and Karen Gillan. What they discover is that you don’t just play Jumanji – Jumanji plays you. They’ll have to go on the most dangerous adventure of their lives, or they’ll be stuck in the game forever…

Comments: As is a Sony Pictures release, the regular HD is likely to be region free. The 4K is region free by design. I would expect Best Buy to offer a similar package for North America.
Regular HD edition available H E R E but it is not listed as a "Zavvi Exclusive"
