Zavvi Description: Zavvi Exclusive Ultra Limited Edition 2000 Copies

Extras: NA

Synopsis: IMDB SAYS: Nearly a year after a botched job, a hitman takes a new assignment with the promise of a big payoff for three killings. What starts off as an easy task soon unravels, sending the killer into the heart of darkness.

Comments: According to one source, Previous release is region locked. StudioCanal is not consistent though with releases. This one lost tons of money so why would they want to region lock this? :doh2:

Nothing new with Life of Pi - Has previously received a Steelbook as seen on Amazon UK

It is cheaper on Zavvi though so it still might be viable for anyone looking. Not sure what makes this one a "zavvi exclusive" with the abovementioned release.

You may have the release that was released countrywide, not a "zavvi exclusive." The Amazon link is not an Amazon exclusive.

So that answers my question as to why Amazon's cover art looks so art ... it's a lenticular cover (??)

Wonder what's up with all the Fox titles lately?
Tell you what I would buy in 2.5 seconds .... some of the Dreamworks animated titles. How to Train Your Dragon, Kung Fu Panda, Shrek, Monsters vs Aliens.

^+++++++

I'd adore some good Dreamworks steels. How to Train your Dragon for example.

From This List I'd probably choose (for a top 5 to have as steels):

How to Train your Dragon
How to Train your Dragon 2
The Croods
Road to El Dorado
Prince of Egypt

Though I could easily add in others, like Monsters versus Aliens, Rise of the Guardians, Puss in Boots, etc.

Doesn't look like it's Lenticular. Seems like it's a Matte Finish. So it seems like the Zavvi exclusive is the same design as the UK-wide release, but minus the lenticular cover.

Zavvi is having a Flash Sale. Everything included (28 steels) is going for £9.99 each. Some of them are older, though a number of them are only a few months old I think.
