I'd probably be all over the BB steelbook if it had this cover:

Well, judging by the fact that many of the other Zavvi preorder Steelbooks (Transformers The Movie, The Dark Tower, Game of Thrones S7, MIB Trilogy) seem to be identical to the Best Buy exclusive Steelbooks in the US, this seems far more likely :

I had no other option than to see this film in 3D when I saw it in a theatre and the 3D was rather distracting as the film is quite dark to begin with. Add the 3D sunglasses and it was really dull.

For me, even native 3D has the same issues of dull colors. No matter how much they turn-up the brightness for 3D, you're still getting a less vibrant color scheme than you would with 2D because there's no getting around the fact that you're wearing tinted glasses.

I don't do 3D, 4K, 5Z, whatever. I'm hoping for a nice Blu-ray SteelBook, or a DigiBook exclusive somewhere.

If the steelbook looks similar to this, I'd be cool with that.

You see the "Artwork TBC" disclaimer at the bottom, right? In my experience, that means the artwork will change before release. I can't think of a SteelBook initially announced with a "TBC" warning that wound up keeping the image through to release.

It'll probably be some hideous Pop Art thing, following recent trends.

Had zero problem with the theatrical 3D on this (which evidently varies from theater to theater), nor do I suspect I will with the disc (on a 3D set that I've never had to artificially brighten to get punchy colours). In the vast majority of 3D theatrical screenings -- in carefully selected theaters, naturally -- brightness and vivid colour palettes have been impacted so little as to be negligible, and on those handful of occasions (for me) where they were obviously too dull or grayed out, it's pretty obvious who was at fault.

Yeah, but if it's even similar, then I'd like that.


Also, I saw this in IMAX and actually enjoyed the expanded screen scenes. Is there any chance of those being included?

The movie did not have a variable ratio (meaning only selected scenes expanding in height). In IMAX theaters, the entire movie was presented open-matte at 1.9:1. Following the example of other movies that have done this (Skyfall, Oblivion, Prometheus, etc.), I expect that it was actually composed for 2.4:1 and will be framed that way on disc.

Yeah, even Deakins said that he composed it for 2.4:1. The alternate ratios are not legit.

I don't do 3D either but I'm curious as to you why you don't do 4K? Is it because you haven't upgraded yet?

It’s just a passing trend. DVD just has better resolution.

For whatever reason, until a Zavvi pre order goes live, the page will show the title as sold out. I'm not planning on getting the zavvi version so I don't know if its gone live yet, or if its actually sold out. But you should check the blu-ray.com boards.

So I was right. Or at least half-right.

Any chance of a release with both the original and 2049? Haven't upgraded my copy of the original to blu-ray yet.

Somewhat shocked that they could not get anyone to do a good job on the cover art. They've all been awful.

Agreed. That Blu-ray steelbook is especially egregious.

In my opinion, some variant of this poster would have been cool for a steelbook (spoilered for size):

4K steelbook looks good, how hard will that be to find at Best Buy on release day?

Hmm, nifty looking, but pass.


Was kinda hoping for a special release with that whiskey from the movie.

That model looks like it would be a bitch to assemble.
