Default Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon UK BD steelbook July 6th

Well here is a UK exclusive steelbook that will be a Day One purchase for yours truly. Simply one of the finest films to ever come out of the Martial Arts genre, and as such will be a great addition to anyone's steelbook collection. Amazon and HMV are not advertising this as a steelbook, so maybe it is exclusive to Play.com?

And it's 11 if you buy any more in the 2 for 22 offer (which I did with 5 discs for 55 oddly).

they don't ship to US, so we need a UK member for a group buy.

Yes I have taken advantage of this deal myself. I am buying one for someone in the US in addition to my own.
The good news though is that this BD steelbook is looking as though it is Region free.

Nice, I hope this isn't exclusive to Play.com since their packaging sucks and I just hate dents in my steelbooks!

Well, Amazon originally had the picture of a Steelbook on their listing, but last week they changed it to a plastic case. So it doesn't look like Amazon will be offering a Steelbook. HMV is still showing the plastic case too.

I ordered mine from BlahDVD. I don't really care if it's steelbook or not, just the movie in high-def will be good enough

It seems to come out in Japan too as a Sony release on 24th of July.

Yeah, agreed

Anyway, I got the UK version on the way as it was already shipped by BlahDVD today from Switzerland Should hopefully receive it around Monday. Don't know if it's a steelbook or not but I'll see it when I get it.
