Looks very similar to those 4K Carpenter editions StudioCanal did, so hopefully the steelbook will also tie in with their steels too and use the same silhouette style art.

The John Carpenter 4K UHD Collector's editions (The Fog/They Live/Escape from New York/Prince of Darkness) are getting a re-release likely in September

Yes it matches the studiocanal releases this was done on purpose so they do match the previous collector's editions

Oh that’s a downer if the steelbook matches those other 4. I do like like that style (I don’t have those 4 but I do have his 4 MCU in the same style) but I’d prefer something meatier. Like that art he did for the German mediabook. Or even this slip art

Amazon Zavvi HMV etc links will show up at some stage

I think this was not meant to be announced until next week

Matt Ferguson announced he has done artwork for a steelbook for UK release
He will be revealing it next week

This release wast not meant to be revealed until next week
This why Amazon/Zavvi/HMV not live yet

Listing on Entertainment store has been pulled

This release was not meant to be revealed until next Week

Matt Ferguson will be revealing details on Monday

They should not be listing it yet

It's not officially going to be announced until next week
Then you will have listings with Amazon/Zavvi/HMV etc

Pulled again from Entertainment Store :rofl:

Edit and relisted again

It will be pulled again as it's not meant to be listed yet

oh no @paulboland is caught in an infinite loop, we need a loop counter pronto


:LOL::rofl:

Just a question about Studio Canal’s re-releases in September:- Does anybody know if the 4k disc of “The Fog” will be cleaned up? Has that issue been rectified for the re-release? If i remember correctly, there were alot of complaints about the image quality of that 4k transfer, particularly the darker scenes…..of which there are many.

Can anyone here assist me in getting one of these? Zavvi appears to have sold out, and HMV and EE won't ship to the USA.

nevermind, picked one up from ebay.
