Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer


Street Date: July 13, 2015

Studio: StudioCanal

Region: B*

Zavvi Description: Zavvi Exclusive Limited Edition Steelbook. Limited to 1000 Copies.

Extras: NA

Technical Info: Previous Release: LPCM 2.0, AR 1.33:1 (!!), 50GB Disc.

Synopsis: Released from prison following his mother's murder. Henry (Michael Rooker, JFK) supplements his job as an exterminator with a series of violent, indiscriminate murders. Crazed drug dealer and fellow jailbird Otis (Tom Towles) provides Henry with a willing accomplice in his grisly pursuits but as the depravity escalates and Henry begins to form a tentative bond with Otis' sister Becky (Tracy Arnold) events spiral towards a chilling and violent conclusion.

Based on the harrowing true story of convicted mass-murderer Henry Lee Lucas (portrayed with a dead-eye passivity by a magnetic rooker), John McNaughtonis (Mad Dog and Glory, Wild Things) Henry: Portrait Of A Serial Killer is one of the most remarkable films in the crowded serial killer genre. Impressively building to a disquieting and horrific climax, the film provides a sobering and nightmarish glimpse into a deranged and damaged mind.

A bona-fide cult classic that as well as being long unavailable is presented here for the first time in its entirety and as the director intended: it's a startling, morally complex and frequently uncompromising work of genuine daring and vision.

Comments: Region-Coding- Will likely be region locked as a large percentage of StudioCanal's releases are. OAR to this movie is 1.85:1, was it a Super-35 Movie? Click top photo to purchase.

Animal Kingdom


Street Date: July 20, 2015

Studio: StudioCanal

Region: B

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

Extras:
Interviews with David Michôd, Guy Pearce, Ben Mendelsohn, Joel Edgerton, Jacki Weaver, James Frecheville, Laura Wheelwright, Sullivan Stapleton and Luke Ford

Making Of
Trailer


Technical Info: Previous Release: DTS-HD MA 5.1, AR 2.35:1, 50GB Disc.

Synopsis: Following the death of his mother, the young ‘J’ Cody goes to live with his estranged gangster relatives. With conflict escalating between his family of criminals and the police’s armed robbery division, J finds himself at the centre of a cold-blooded vengeance plot. As he naively navigates his way through the criminal underworld, he is forced to question where his loyalties lie as he tries to decipher who he can trust and who can protect him as he struggles for his own survival.

Starring Guy Pearce (The King’s Speech, The Proposition, Memento) and Academy Award-nominee Jacki Weaver, Animal Kingdom is a stunning modern crime thriller of brooding and brutal intensity.

Comments: Region-Coding- Will likely be region locked as a large percentage of StudioCanal's releases are, and previous one is reported to be locked. Click top photo to purchase.

Good Will Hunting


Street Date: July 20,2015

Studio: Lionsgate

Region: B

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

Extras: NA

Technical Info: Previous Release: DTS-HD MA 5.1, AR 1.85:1, 50GB Region Locked Disc

Synopsis: The most brilliant mind at America's top university isn't a professor... he's the guy who cleans its floors, Will Hunting (Damon in an Oscar.-nominated role). But Will is also a headstrong, penniless guy failing the lessons of life and love with his wealthy girlfriend (Oscar nominee Minnie Driver). Facing a jail sentence after one too many run-ins with the law, Will's fate lies in the hands of his therapist (Williams), who might be the only man able to help him see his true potential. Also starring Ben Affleck ('Chasing Amy', 'Armageddon'), who co-wrote this Oscar winning original screenplay with Damon, 'Good Will Hunting' is the inspiring, emotionally charged film that has everyone talking!

Comments: Region Coding-Will likely be region locked as is Lionsgate and they tend to lock all their releases (assholes.) Click top photo to purchase

You're Next


Street Date: July 20, 2015

Studio: Lionsgate

Region: B

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

Extras: (??) UV Digital Copy (??)

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

Synopsis: A family reunion turns into a bloodbath in this home invasion horror thriller directed by Adam Wingard. After arriving at their idyllic country mansion, Paul and Aubrey Davison (Rob Moran and Barbara Crampton)'s family settle down for some rare quality time together.

But just as they begin to relax and unwind, the family find themselves targeted by a group of deranged killers wearing animal masks. As the desperate victims face a frenzied battle for survival, a family member's girlfriend, Erin (Sharni Vinson), ably demonstrates that she's more than capable of holding her own.

Comments: Region-Coding speculation: Will likely be region locked as is a Lionsgate release and they tend to lock all of theirs (assholes.) Click top photo to purchase. Previous release had a lame cover, hopefully this one stays like the USA one is.

Not for lack of caring but am not sure if the James Bond ones will be highlighted in this thread.
They're releasing seven different movies with artwork inspired by the opening sequence in each movie.

http://www.zavvi.com/offers/steelbooks/james-bond.list
Bundle pack also available of all the movies.
Includes:
Casino Royale
Diamonds Are Forever
For Your Eyes Only
From Russia With Love
On Her Majesty's Secret Service
Thunderball
You Only Live Twice

Turns out the USA is also getting the same lame cover art Steels. There are currently 9 that we know of-So Zavvi's exclusivity is not really a big deal unless you're in the UK.

Dobut I'll bother getting the James Bond steels myself. I already have all the movies on BD, as part of that large Multi-movie set.

A) Marvel is very popular in Europe
or
B) Zavvi can fuck off
or
C) Ebay scalpers can fuck off, which also means B)
??

Was up at around 5:30 this morning, received an email time-stamped 4:34AM advertising preorders for Any-Man 3D. Clicked on it... SOLD OUT

Has anyone here successfully ordered Marvel titles from Zavvi after an hour of the announcement?

I'm sure Best Buy both here in Canada and the US will get a 3D steelbook of it.
