Not really worth pre-ordering at this stage if the Zoom code doesn't apply (I know it does if you use PayPal but don't want to pay for it now).

Will be a 100% purchase though.

Seeing the film tonight - can't wait!

It's gone back to having no date again now, but for one day last week Amazon UK had this as a November 11 release date over here.

Mayge not the best place to ask but might as well. Amazon US costs £45 inc import fees. Amazon CA costs £40 (where I pre ordered from) but they don't mention any import fees. Is it worth the extra £5 to buy from Amazon US?

Yes. You will almost definitely get hit by import fees separately, which will end up costing you about £15 more.

Thanks.

Just to add, the Spider-Man Homecoming & Far From Home boxset 4K is still down as November 11th over here, so I'd assume that's when the single one is out.

Yes mate, thats the date that popped up. It's not "official official" but you'll be looking 1st half of nov.

I know it always happens with the MCU films but that seems like a very long time between the US & UK release dates. A full 6 weeks. The film was released at the cinema at the same time, both sides of the Atlantic.

Won't that affect sales in the UK? The type of of people who are buying and watching 4K UHD discs are generally film enthusiasts and will be fully aware of those release dates and might decide to import.

Seems a bit naive on the part of the distributor to have such a significant delay to the UK disc's release.

£45 vs £25 though...so there would be some, but not too many that are going to pay almost double the price to get it a few weeks early.

Agreed. Not a bloody chance. There was a time when I'd have paid £30/35 from wowhd for new releases (before they charged vat) back in the first year or so of UHD, but that time has definitely passed :rotfl:

Nice looking disc, this and Homecoming definitely two of the nicest looking MCU films in 4K. Surprise surprise they're the ones handled by Sony and not Disney :rotfl:

After reading this review from Blu ray I think I’d rather have the Blu, the sound is more important to me & the BD will still look great!
Anyone watched their disc yet & have any opinions on this?

I was specifically referring to the audio ?
how did you find it? Lacking in dynamics? Weak LFE? Etc. ?

Ah sorry I thought you were asking about the picture. I dont have an Atmos setup :( but I know all to well about the volume adjustment needed for some of the earlier MCU releases and no had non of that trouble with Far from Home. I normally play films between 55-60 and this was on 55 IIRC when I watched it Tuesday night

Still not sure that answers what you're asking but hopefully it helps lol :rotfl:

I think it’s a Sony release, and sure the first one was too.
Can only assume Disney have got involved somewhere with this, maybe supplying Sony with an inferior soundtrack. Maybe it’s revenge for not giving them a bigger share of the profits?
