Region: Free

Zavvi Description: Zavvi Exclusive Limited Edition Steelbook Blu-ray

Extras: UV Digital Copy

Technical Info: DTS-HD MA 5.1, AR 1.85:1, 1 BD-50 Disc

Synopsis: There is more to karate than fighting. This is the lesson that Daniel (Macchio), a San Fernando Valley teenager, is about to learn from a most unexpected teacher: Mr. Miyagi (Morita), an elderly handyman who also happens to be a master of martial arts. So when he rescues Daniel from the Cobra Kai, a vicious gang of karate school bullies, Miyagi instills in his young friend the importance of honour and confidence as well as skills in self-defence, vital lessons that will be called into play when a hopelessly outclassed Daniel faces Johnny, the sadistic leader of the Cobra Kai, in a no-holds-barred karate tournament for the championship of the Valley.

Comments: Region Coding - Previous release is a region-free Sony Release and the listing also indicates it. No doubt this release is timed right to coincide with the new Cobra Kai movie coming out.

Technical Info: LPCM 5.1 48/16, AR 2.35:1, 1 BD-25 Disc

Synopsis:

Comments: Although the UK version was not tested region-free or not, other international versions were. No reason to believe Sony would break protocol and have the UK version region locked. NOTE: This is the 1990 version of this movie.

4K Steelbook Megalaunch (Five Titles) - 'Extremely Limited Stock'

So yeah, Zavvi has 5 titles in 4K/UHD Steelbook. They're all rather generic covers, just the main character posing on generally plain backgrounds though the artwork is 'subject to change' (I doubt they'll make it more interesting though, if they change it at all). Still, 4K and steelbook casing so it's not the worst. The titles are; Lara Croft Tomb Raider, Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life, Ghost in the Shell (The Live action), Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, and XXX: The Return of Xander Cage.

Just how limited their stock is, is questionable. Seems a bit hyperbolic.

These are the same SteelBooks that were just released in the U.S. but with only regular Blu-rays in them. The cases themselves are identical.

All movies worth only seeing once and not worth having steelbooks for IMO

Street Date: June 4, 2018

Studio: Marvel/Disney

Region: NA

Zavvi Description: Zavvi Exclusive Limited Edition Steelbook Blu-ray

Extras: NA

Technical Info: Speculated: DTS-HD MA 5.1, AR 16:9, 4 BD-50 Discs

Synopsis:

One man's battle against a legendary enemy ignites an epic saga of mysticism, betrayal and bone-crushing action in Marvel's Iron Fist: The Complete First Season.

Fifteen years after a plane crash kills his parents, presumed-dead lone surviver Danny Rand returns home to New York City. He hopes to fulfil his destiny as the Immortal Iron Fist, claim his birthright and reunite with the childhood friends who now run Rand Enterprises. But the company has been infiltrated by ""The Hand"", a criminal empire whose greed and bloodlust are part of a vast conspiracy to corrupt Danny's powers and destroy him by turning even his closest allies against him.


Comments: Region Coding Unknown - In general Disney titles are region free, but tv series might be a different story.
