Well, I got some information on new and upcoming Blu-ray SteelBooks that I thought many would be interested in (not sure if this should go here or the HD forum). Some are international, but figured one thread was enough.

Now, I am not a next-generation adopter myself so I would like to rely on those of you to help me out as well. I can keep posting upcoming and related, but if someone wouldn't mind compiling a list I would certainly appreciate it. I can then post in the this first post and update accordingly.

SteelBook<SUP>TM</SUP> US & Canada Blu-ray:

I Am Legend (Future Shop Exclusive)
Iron Man (2-disc, Future Shop Exclusive)...release date 9/30/08
Daft Punks: Electroma (NA)



SteelBook<SUP>TM</SUP> International Blu-ray:

10,000 BC (1-disc, Intl)
Death Proof (1-disc, Intl)
Ghost in the Shell: Innocence (Absolute Edition, Japan)
Iron Man (Dutch, Spain)...release date TBD

Are we sure that this is a Steelbook?

Pictures that I have seen, suggest a metalpak. The spine was definitely not a Steelbook brand.

The SE of Devil May Cry 4 for PS3 is in a steelbook. I don't now if this qualifies, but it looks pretty and it's blu-ray sized like all PS3 games.

is it really THAT hard to release a R1 Blu-ray steelbook?

Morphine1680
07-20-08, 06:51 PM
It has to do with licensing, I heard no one in US has the license to release steelbooks for bluray, at least for now. Scanavo.com grants license, an European company :(

The American DVD buying public has never been much interested in discs with fancy packaging. When movies are released in otherwise identical editions, one in normal packaging and one in a special case or box, the normal case typically outsells the fancy one by an order of magnitude.

Things are different in other countries, where elaborate packaging holds more appeal for the local consumers.

True as that may or may not be, we still see R1 DVD Steelbooks.... i think its about time we get a R1 Blu-ray, thats all. I'm not talking one every month... but a couple a year would be great, for now anyway.

Ah well, in due time.

Are HD steelbook more collectible than the Blu Ray Steelbook?

My mindset here is that HD-DVD was a discontinued system and gone.. so no chance of any new re-release out there for such?

Actually, the license or copyright, are held by the studios. Scanavo will produce what ever cover art, that is approved by the studios. I have yet to hear of Scanavo turning down any studio business.

The first Blu-ray SteelBook (I Am Legend), was released in Canada. US and Canadian movie release are two different entities. For one reason or another, the Canadian arm of WB gave their approval of the Blu-ray SteelBook.

The Iron Man 2-Disc Ultimate Edition Blu-ray SteelBook was authorized for release in Canada by Paramount.

I believe that the Shawshank Redemption HD SteelBook is readily available from Amazon.de. I will order it with my next batch of SteelBooks from them as shipping charges are more acceptable when placing large orders with them.

I will post on the site that I sent you, when I have it.

I do not know when I will place my next order but I will try to remember.

While I have had great success with both Amazon.co.uk and HMV.co.uk, I prefer the shipping rates with Amazon.co.uk. They charge a flat rate + pieces and ship in a heavy cardboard mailer. HMV charges you 4.50 per DVD and use an OK cardboard mailer. The prices are sometimes cheaper with Amazon.co.uk.

Compare the prices with the Cinema Reserve SteelBooks from both sites and you will see what I mean.
