Same here! Sounds like a great package :evil:
another review, some good pics showing how good some scenes look compared to how bad the added footage still looks
certainly more positive than the other reviews posted
the price is kind of discouraging though, think it will go down ?
Would you believe I've never seen this? I'm thinking about blind buying it.
I certainly hope so. I just placed a good sized order from Amazon.uk with this in the cart. I saw its price and removed it from the cart before finalizing the order. I appreciate and understand the cost with all that went into this bd, but it's a tad too pricey right now. Speaking of bd prices, if the studios want people to buy 3d bd's, can they lower the damn prices? I don't need the regular bd, DVD, digital disc, digital code and Ultraviolet. Just offer the damn 3d bd at a reasonable price. Rant over.
Read nothing about it. It is a great film to go in blind. And do not watch a trailer first!
I pre-ordered it at Amazon UK for much less, but the price has apparently gone way up. It shipped the other day for just £15.47
I'd watch it first, it's a little slow and pretty dated. It definitely has its moments, but I've always found it overrated.
I sold my AB wood box edition long ago, then the regular 2-disc went for a nice price as well, so I don't mind paying a fair price--I just hope it gets a similar release in the states.
Apparently this will be coming to the US on 01/07/2014. Wal-Mart has put up a preorder.
That's a great price, but it just doesn't have the value that the U.K. Studio Canal 3 disc bd has. Still waiting for the price to get a little bit cheaper before I buy that though.
Amazon pre-order for the US release!:
I have a bad feeling that the US release is getting shafted somehow.
UK MSRP (2 BD, 1 CD): £44.99
US MSRP (? BD, ? CD): $19.99
I share your feelings. It's Lionsgate, after all. Can't wait to see what they come up with for artwork
Lionsgate? Screw that. Being region-free is a necessity these days. I'd rather have the UK set...which should arrive to me any day now.
The Lionsgate edition will be inferior, it's as definite as death and taxes. They're just a step down from Anchor Bay anymore.
It may not be season for the Harvest, but Lord Summerisle invites you to partake in the domestic blu debut of Robin Hardy's THE WICKER MAN (1973)! Receiving a letter detailing the disappearance of a young girl, mainland cop Sgt. Howie makes his way to the secluded island of Summerisle, an obscure place known mainly for its produce export. Upon his arrival, he's confused by the nature of the locals, who not only offer no help, but claim no knowledge of the missing girl at all! His devout Christian background at constant odds with their free-willed pagan heritage, he's convinced there's a terrifying secret to this town -- but what exactly is it?
Often imitated, frequently ripped off, and eventually even remade, the original WICKER MAN is a true genre classic that still remains a potent viewing experience after 40 years. Scripted by famed writer Anthony Shaffer (SLEUTH, FRENZY), the film carefully peels back its layers until the truth of Summerisle is revealed -- one that's probably less shocking now thanks to the proliferation of Nicholas Cage Youtube compilations. The cast is uniformly excellent, with television star Edward Woodward giving his all as a man determined to unravel the mystery handed to him no matter the cost, and Hammer star Christopher Lee branching out from his Dracula / Fu Manchu image and practically stealing the show. And who can forget Britt Ekland's famous dance...
No details have emerged yet on Lionsgate's upcoming release, but being part of their Studio Canal collection I imagine it should duplicate the Region B import pretty closely. "Come. It is time to keep your appointment with the Wicker Man."
