Glad I got the previous Roger Rabbit Steelbook. The red looked a lot better than yellow.

Zavvi Description: Zavvi Exclusive Limited Edition Steelbook. Limited to 2000 Copies.

Extras: NA

Technical Info: Previous Release: Dolby Digital 5.1, 25GB region-free Disc, AR 1.85:1

Synopsis: One of the scariest films in years, Wolf Creek is an unforgettable, shocking and completely visceral experience from first-time director Greg McLean.

Three backpackers head into the beautiful and isolated Australian outback in a dilapidated car. After several days of driving, they finally arrive at their destination - Wolf Creek National Park, a mysterious area where a meteorite landed. After exploring the terrain, they discover that their watches don't work and their car won't start. As panic sets in and the trio prepare to spend the night in the middle of nowhere, they notice strange lights emerging from the darkness heading straight for them. So begins the group's encounter with one of the most terrifying madmen in the history of film.

Based on terrifying true events, Wolf Creek is a cinematic hand grenade guaranteed to have you on the edge of your seat.

Comments: Unless this film is getting a new disc, which they won't do just for a steelbook, expect it to be region free and with lossy audio. Release date is likely an error. Click top photo to purchase.

Zavvi Description: Zavvi Exclusive Limited Edition Steelbook - Limited to 2000 Copies.

Extras: NA

Technical Info: Previous Disc: (lossy) Dolby Digital 5.1, AR 2.39:1, 50GB Disc

Synopsis: Clint Eastwood's film Unforgiven is an exciting modern classic that rode off with four 1992 Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Director.

'The movie summarised everything I feel about a Western.' Eastwood told the Los Angeles Times. 'The morale is the concern with gun play.'

Eastwood and Morgan Freeman play retired, down-on-their-luck outlaws who pick up their guns one last time to collect a bounty offered by the vengeful prostitutes of the remote Wyoming town of Big Whiskey. Richard Harris is an ill-fated interloper, a colourful killer-for-hire called English Bob. And Best Supporting Actor Oscar Winner Gene Hackman is the sly and brutal local sheriff who's brand of law enforcement ranges from unconventional to ruthless. Big trouble if coming to Big Whiskey.

Comments: Region-Coding- As with most Warner titles, this will likely be region-free (Thanks Warner)

Really enjoyed Unforgiven, more of a suspense drama.

WTF: This title went from Pre-Order to SOLD OUT while I was typing up the above template. No huge loss though as the audio is lossy, no reason to replace other disc.

Street Date: October 7, 2013

Studio: Lionsgate

Region: B

Zavvi Description: Zavvi Exclusive Limited Edition Steelbook - 4000 Only.

Extras: NA

Technical Info: DTS-HD MA 5.1, AR 2.40:1, 50GB Disc

Synopsis: When a group of heavily armed and meticulously trained extremists launch a daring daylight ambush on the White House, the President (Aaron Eckhart, The Dark Knight) and his staff are taken hostage inside an impenetrable underground bunker.

But as the Oval office and its environs sustain an aerial and ground attack, a disgraced former U.S. Secret Service agent, Mike Banning (Gerard Butler,300), finds his way into the besieged building to do the job he has trained for all his life: to protect the president - at all costs.

With tension rising, the Acting President (Morgan Freeman, The Dark Knight Rises) and US national security team must rely on Banning to rescue the President before the terrorists can unleash their ultimate, terrifying plan.

Zavvi Description: Zavvi Exclusive Limited to 4000 copies.

Extras:
The Final Cut
Burnt Offering: The Cult of the Wicker Man documentary, written by Mark Kermode
Worshipping the Wicker Man
The Music of the Wicker Man featurette
Interview with Robin Hardy

Dvd Copy


Technical Info: LPCM 2.0, AR 1.85:1, 50GB Disc

Synopsis: Since its release in 1973, The Wicker Man has held an enduring fascination for audiences, commanding a devotion that most films can only dream of. A unique and bona fide horror masterpiece, the film can now be seen in its original theatrical version.

When a young girl mysteriously disappears, Police Sergeant Howie (Edward Woodward) travels to a remote Scottish island to investigate. But this pastoral community, led by the strange Lord Summerisle (Christopher Lee), is not what it seems as the devoutly religious detective soon uncovers a secret society of wanton lust and pagan blasphemy.

Brilliantly scripted by Anthony Shaffer (Sleuth, Frenzy) and featuring an astounding performance by the legendary Christopher Lee, director Robin Hardy's atmospheric use of location, unsettling imagery and haunting soundtrack gradually builds to one of the most terrifying and iconic climaxes in modern cinema.

Comments: Region-Coding - StudioCanal has locked this title (assholes.)

Zavvi Description: Zavvi Exclusive Limited Edition Steelbook. Limited to 2000 Copies.

Extras: NA

Technical Info: Previous Release: DTS-HD MA 7.1, AR 2.40:1, 25GB Disc

Synopsis: As a last hurrah after college, friends Jeff, Karen, Paul, Mercy and Bert embark on a vacation deep into the mountains. With the top down and the music up, they drive to a remote cabin to enjoy their last days of decadence before entering the working world. Then somebody gets sick.

Karen's skin starts to bubble and burn as something grows inside her, tunneling beneath her flesh. As they debate about how to save her, they look at one another and realize that any one of them could also have it. What began as a struggle against the disease soon turns into a battle against friends, as the fear of contagion drives them to turn on each other...

Comments: Region-Coding - Although Lionsgate is generally not too friendly regarding region coding, the previous release is region-free. Ordering will likely open up on 4/11 or 4/12.
