Zavvi Description: Zavvi Exclusive Steelbook - Limited to 2000 copies.

Extras:

Technical Info: LPCM 5.1, AR 1.85:1, 25 GB Disc

Synopsis: Milla Jovovich (Resident Evil, The Fifth Element), Cameron Bright (X-Men 3), Nick Chinlund (The Legend of Zorro) and William Fichtner (The Longest Yard) star in ULTRAVIOLET. Set in the late 21st century, a subculture of humans has emerged who have been genetically modified by a vampire-like disease (Hemophagia), giving them enhanced speed, incredible stamina and acute intelligence. As they are set apart from "normal" and "healthy" humans, the world is pushed to the brink of worldwide civil war (between humans and hemophages) aimed at the destruction of the "diseased" population. In the middle of this crossfire is an infected woman, Ultraviolet, who finds herself protecting a nine-year-old boy who has been marked for death by the government as a threat to humans.

Comments: This quality release is listed as region free, previous versions have been as well.

Damn Josh, I wish you would write reviews like this here LOL
I actually want to see this movie now.

Not a fan of that Amelie steelbook, maybe too cartoony, not sure.
Deadpool looks generic, but the inside artwork is funny.
The only thing I like about The Mist is the coloring.
The UV steelbook does look good.

As it is common knowledge that Steelbooks are just recycled discs. I noted the review of UV says it is Mpeg2 encoded. Looking back at early Blu Ray releases, one would assume that is BAD. Mpeg2 itself isn't bad, but the releases from back in the day that had it sucked.

Street Date: March 7, 2016

Studio: Magnolia Pictures

Region: B

Zavvi Description: Limited to 2000 Copies

Extras: NA

Technical Info: DTS-HD MA 5.1, AR 2.35:1, 50Gb Disc

Synopsis: In the vein of Shaun of the Dead, TUCKER AND DALE VS. EVIL Dale is a wild, wonky tale of two hillbilly buddies trying to survive their vacation in the woods when they are mistaken for killers by a gang of college kids. Our heroes valiantly save one of the college girls from drowning but are accused of wrongdoing. The chase ensues, not treating the students too well, leaving us with a gory but hilarious tale of two hillbillies and their hearts of gold.

Comments: Although distributed by Sony, is a Magnolia release, of which they tend to region lock their discs

Zavvi Description: Limited to 2000 Copies

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

Synopsis: Danny Madigan, a young cinema fan, is crazy about his all-time great movie hero, L.A. cop Jack Slater. Having received a magic golden cinema ticket, Danny is able to cross into movieland and meet the real life hero as well as all the baddies. But when the movie characters cross into real life everybody's in for a big shock. Action-adventure superstar Arnold Schwarzenegger bursts through the screen as the larger-than-life movie hero in this non-stop adventure from acclaimed director John McTiernan (Predator, Die Hard).

Comments: Listed as region-free, as is a true-blue Sony Pictures release, it is in fact region-free
