No slipcover by the looks of it. Don't understand why Arrow seen to have ditched collectible packaging on most of their releases.

Great movie. The original blu-ray release of this is pretty poor and a remaster is long overdue. I don't buy many discs these days, but this is a pre-order.

I’m not sure its a deal or not, but this title is £21.99 on Amazon, HMV et all.

I think it was previous £25 (Could be wrong though :laugh:)
HMV/Zavvi was £21.99 when went live to pre order on December 17th

Amazon was £29.99 when went live and as usual later price match HMV £21.99

It's the Zavvi exclusive steelbook that is £24.99
