New Mothra Bluray steelbook from Mill Creek, July 09, 2019

https://www.mediaplaynews.com/mothra...om-mill-creek/

This special edition release marks the North American Blu-ray debut of Mothra and includes both the U.S. theatrical cut as well as the original, extended Japanese version of the film. Special features include feature-length commentary with authors and Japanese sci-fi historians Steve Ryfle and Ed Godziszewski, trailers, and a photo gallery.

The film is presented in a 2.35:1 widescreen aspect ratio with DTS-HD Master Audio for both English and Japanese tracks and English subtitles on a dual-layered Blu-ray disc.
I'm wary of that commentary being announced. Toho has a less than stellar track record of allowing good extras like that to be put on US releases.

Bur I'm down for this either way, that's a great look steelbook.

Wow, Mill Creek seems to be stepping up their game. And that’s a very nice looking steelbook. I’ll pick it up.

Columbia owns the U.S. version and can do whatever they want. Commentary may be on U.S. version.

Only when it comes to superficial packaging.

The compression/encode of Sheena was a hot mess.

More effort was put into that retro VHS slipcase.

I wouldn't trust Mill Creek, but maybe the company is trying to change. Oh man I love abusive relationships. Moh-su-rah!

This has all the potential to be one of the best releases ever.

Don't fuck this up, MC!

Wow! I'll stick with Amazon just because I have gift cards to burn, but that Walmart price is killer, especially with free shipping. Thanks for pointing that out!

I just did a "
tell us about a lower price tell us about a lower price
?" on Amazon. I'm guessing they'll price match Walmart.

Great looking steelbook and slipcover. As originally posted, it does have both US and extended original Japanese versions. It also does have audio commentary on the English version only with Authors and Japanese Sci-Fi Historians Steve Ryfle and Ed Godziszewski, as well as teaser, trailer, and image gallery.

Amazon delivered. No dents and it is a wonderful looking steelbook with a cool plastic slipcover. I usually do not go out of my way to pick up steelbooks but this one is a winner.
