No. It shows steelbook, but when trying to go for preorder it returns you to home page.
So it looks like it's still avaliable just for RC members.
It was live initially only for Red Carpet then went live for everyone about 15 min later

It's still live if you are using zavvi Ireland website

It's zavvi UK website that is locked to Red carpet until 9 AM
Check zavvi UK website about 10-15 min before 9am

Typical I asked when it goes on sale and it's out next day to preorder... It's nice that they've matched the other steel books, but, it's a terrible cover I've gone for the collectors edition instead.

Last time I bought both editions from them, but this time only the CE, as the steelbook isn't that good, same background front and back, and looks too much like Escape from NY.
Maybe better than Best Buy exclusive...

If this was drawn by Joe Bloggs instead of Matt Ferguson we would all be slating this artwork

The art had made a lot of people unhappy in here


it will be glossy - guaranteed to match the Studio Canal ones. We worked closely with both SC and Matt on this one

You should of chose Matts other Thing artworks. Such better pieces with more detail. Major fail

Happy with my Arrow slipbox/steel combo, but the fact they're continuing this line of Carpenter's films has me hoping for an In the Mouth of Madness release down the line. Never had a Blu-ray release in the UK but it deserves one.

To be fair, it's not entirely Matts fault, his hands were tied here, with obviously clear instructions to follow the designs of the previous Studio Canal artworks and that's what he has done, so fair play, i'm not that impressed with the art either, my Arrow steel from a few years ago is all I need. I've no need for this.....and overpriced as well.

I fully hold the studio responsible for this. I like matts minimal art. But this and the other 4 are too samey. Especially when he’s created those lovely slip version artworks for the same films. This is on the studio. They just love sh!tting on steel collectors. Universal are so poor with finishes nowadays too
