As long as they don't sell out of pre orders then yes it will be. But Play.com steels tend to sell out fast, so it's hit or miss really.

So it's not cut and it has 7.1
That's the only way I would consider ordering this steelbook.

Last time I fell for a steelbook it wasn't fulfilling my needs

Just been on Ebay trying to pick up the last two definitive edition DVDs I need, and managed to find Moulin Rouge. Just checking the seller's other items to see if they had The Silence Of The Lambs (having a lot of trouble finding this one), and noticed the seller has the MI4 steelbook for 39.99 excluding postage. They have 4 copies

It is still available to pre-order for 17.99, and if you live overseas then surely you could find someone on these forums to get it for you. I would probably expect this price in a few months when it is sold out and hard to get hold of. I hope there is no-one who is so naive that they buy this

Some people have more money than sense.

Like still paying close to $100 for Avatar 3D even though the retail release is slated for this year

The film was passed with no cuts:

Quote:
The scenes of moderate action violence are loud and often accompanied by crunchy sound effects. However, because the action is very fast-paced, there is a lack of focus on the impact of the blows and kicks. The stronger moments include sight of two men being shot in the head inside a vehicle. Although there is brief sight of bloody detail, there is no dwelling on detail. In another scene, a man is shot in the back and we see small bullet exit holes on the back of his jacket. There are also various scenes showing brief neck, arm and leg breaks but these are implied by twists and accompanying sound effects only. The BBFC's Guidelines at '12A'/'12' state 'Moderate violence is allowed but should not dwell on detail. There should be no emphasis on injuries or blood, but occasional gory moments may be permitted if justified by the context'.

The film also contains two uses of mild language ('shit').

That is what I have read elsewhere.
It appears that the additional extras certified by the BBFC are only going to be on the Sainsbury's exclusive 2 disk DVD, so will only be SD.
They are unfortunately not doing a 2 disk BD.

I think this will still be 2 BD and DVD with a digital copy code. Never heard of Paramount omitting second BD. The only exception was G.I Joe where the US release had special features on DVD whereas the International release had all the special features on BD on HD but with the main feature encoded at a slightly lower bit rate. In the end, the International release was still superior as the bonus features were all on High Definition.

WHAT?

I didn't like the film that much but am a fan of Bird wanted to actually watch special features, we don't get a second disc? Where is the source?

There is no solid source. I think it is purely speculation. Same happened with Transformers 3D release. It would be stupid and atrocious to exclude Bonus Features BD and sticking an useless DVD / Digital Copy.

I'm thinking you're right.

Hungary has just been confirmed to be getting this steelbook and its got 2 discs.

http://www.xpress.hu/bluray/prod.asp...07587240240503

So I don't see why the Play exclusive won't have 2 discs too, just strange that they don't specify that it is 2 disc.

Whenever see Triple Play I always assume 1BD 1DVD 1DC. But I think we will get 2BD 1DVD w/DC

I think the problem is until someone has the disks no one knows are Paramount UK seem very loathe at giving out press releases with specs. Also they don't seem to give out review copies.

We should get this shipped the Wednesday before release and it should get to UK buyers at the weekend. Problem is like many Play.com exclusive steelbooks it may be sold out prior to release date. So a risk if you wait to see what others get.

I wish this was there on Amazon as well. Play charges a lot for international shipping. Why is it releasing so late in the UK?

I hope that's not true..UK doesn't have any store exclusives, right? For the bonus features that is.

I'm guessing they're gonna use it as leverage to make us double dip. This and the lossless tracks for the other three .
