Saturday's reveal was for Perfect Blue
http://www.zavvi.com/blu-ray/perfect.../11274761.html

Am assuming it is Anime based on the cover art but you know what they say...?
Apparently there are going to be a series of these.

Yeah, it's anime. Kind of a psychological horror/thriller movie. I haven't actually seen Black Swan, but from what I've seen in the trailers to that movie, they'd probably fall into the same category. Wouldn't be surprised at all if Perfect Blue inspired Black Swan, actually.

Black Swan? As in the ballet movie w/ Natalie Portman?

Yeah. With Portman apparently hallucinating an alter ego or something right?

Perfect Blue is a direct influence on Black Swan. Darren Aronofsky is a fan and even made a reference to the film in his earlier Requiem for a Dream.

Both movies are about performers (a pop star in the anime, a ballet dancer in Black Swan) who have nervous breakdowns and are overcome by paranoia and hallucinations.

I haven't seen Perfect Blue or Black Swan, but both I would like to see. I like that Perfect Blue steelbook artwork.

Re: Perfect Blu (and others) One would figure in this day and age where UHD BD is up and coming that they would relax the region locking rules a bit for regular BD.

While poking around on Film Arena I noticed a different cover art so I looked at Zavvi.
Cover Art for Zootropolis has been updated as well as release date.
It's kind of likable.

At least the previous temp art had the movie's title written on a street sign. This one does away with that, which means it will be another Disney SteelBook with no indication of the movie's title anywhere on it.
