Wow was expecting this classic! Not sure if it'll have forced French subtitles (not heard of the distributor Arcadès) so I'll be hanging off buying it until I hear.

[I realise this is a Steelbook but I think it's better in this part of the forum or nobody will ever read this thread]

For lovers of Soderbergh's Solaris there's a pretty impressive Germany Blu-ray (it's been released on 4 different editions) release review here I have the Futurepak steel case edition.


I can't see any evidence of Arcadès using forced subtitles so I'll take a chance on The Limey.

And just a reminder that his wonderful King of The Hill on Criterion has surely the best extra ever put on a Blu-ray: the almost forgotten The Underneath.

Yeah I got the first digibook release a while back and reviewed it here. Im pretty sure Cas reviewed it too.

Could do with a proper release to fix a couple of very slight transfer errors and a nice batch of extras would be welcome. A 4K transfer would be even more welcome!

Where's my fakin' Blu-ray you bastards?

Yeah, not sure what's happening was looking forward to it.

There's been a great transfer kicking around for a few years sourced from Canal+ in France I believe so I'm still hopeful we'll get a Blu-ray soon.

We're getting another chance of it at the end of the year from Germany:

Hopefully that's just an artist's dodgy photoshopping as mediabooks aren't normally so thick.

FInally picked the French Steelbook release up with the UHD:

Looks very nice although not sure about the colour scheme I'll see when I watch it in full.

The Steelbook actually flips over so you have English on one side but I made my own case anyway to house old discs which have other extras.
