Je vais poster ça ici parce que je suis sur le téléphone mais à priori y’a quelques sujets à créer
we had a longer pause for time reasons and now we bring you up-to-date information.
Magicbox (a new local Universal distributor) has taken on all its opportunities and the first standard releases have already come out. We believe that soon the individual processes will settle down in the right ways.
1) Today we are launching pre-orders for a limited edition with the numbered statuette VENOM vs RIOT, which is limited to 1750 pieces for the whole world. Each piece is numbered on its pedestal. The statuette is packed with an exclusive 4-disc VENOM SteeBook in the 4K + 3D + 2D + Blu-ray Bonus configuration. First of all, pre-orders will be created for all those who have signed up on the reservation list by clicking on the button I WANT TO BUY. If some pieces are left, they will be offered for free sale, which we will inform you about in our feeds. The limited editions will arrive at our warehouse next week and we would like to start dispatching them by Friday.
2) In the following hours, we will go public with beauty shots of FAC #111 THE EQUALIZER 2. There are 3 XL FullSlip editions and one MANIACS BOX. We've played with them long, all 3 will be evenly balanced and packed with the quality you're used to. We will start shipping completed editions THE EQUALIZER 2 as soon as T2 pre-orders are dispatched.
Now for more updates.
It took a long time to finish all the four T2 master discs. Checking individual discs needed a longer time, then the authoring studio had to overcome the compatibility verification of the data transferred to the production. On Friday 8, 2019, they successfully passed the verification of the 2D and 3D master discs, on Wednesday 13, 2019 we have gone through the UHD disc verification. All of them are now in production. T2 now waits for discs, lenticulars, and boxes. The currently set release dates should match delivery times and subsequent completion if nothing else happens.
FIRST MAN, HALLOWEEN, SCHINDLER'S LIST, KING KONG, and other Universal SteelBooks
FIRST MAN and HALLOWEEN are the first to be on the list. As j-cards were delivered today, we would like to start the expedition of both usual j-card SteelBook titles next week, each with two mutations, one with UHD and the other without. The FAC editions are on hold because we are still waiting for materials from the studio. Schindler's List is in approval, FIRST MAN is still waiting for materials, just like HALLOWEEN and others behind him. At the same time, our distributor sets up individual processes to get the communication and approval process more efficient. Kindly expect to wait longer, but it pays to wait. In the order, there are also waiting SteelBooks PITCH BLACK and CASINO, which is being prepared for September.
Under the approval, we have the romantic superstar hit A STAR IS BORN, which besides great equipment also offers the option to add a UHD disc to a basic Blu-ray disc. We are working on CREED II, where we offer two SteelBook versions. Those who order both FAC editions will get a Hardbox as a gift. At Aquaman, it's going to be a richer one, because we've managed to get a total of 3 versions of SteelBook for you. We are waiting for approval with the publication of all three SteelBook mock-ups, each offering a specific configuration (3D + 2D, UHD + 2D and 2D single slot). With Warner Bros., we are also preparing THE MULE classic with the ageless Clive Eastwood.
We are very close to finishing the titles ALLIED and GHOST IN THE SHELL, then is under the approval MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE FALLOUT, where two editions are planned, each with different SteelBook and those who buy both editions will be getting a gift Hardbox. The boys from Black Barons are trying to finalize BB #7 13 HOURS Secret Soldiers of Benghází.
As far as the FOX studio is concerned, we are approaching BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY, where we are preparing a luxury XL edition with a two-disc generic WWA SteelBook. FAC edition BR will be released in two-disc UHD + BD configuration. ALITA BATTLE ANGEL, which was produced by James Cameron and is not only visually beautifully processed, is worth mentioning. Here you will find WWA generic three-disc SteelBook in the UHD + 3D + BD configuration, which will be available in FAC featuring XL Lenticular 3D FullSlip. We think it's going to be one of the last 3Ds that FOX will release. We work on THE PREDATOR exclusive editions and we are nearing finishing. Then we would like to go under the approving with ALIEN exclusive SteelBook, followed by the first PREDATOR with Arnold.
THOR RAGNAROK editions are approved and will be presented at the earliest opportunity. Under the approving process are BLACK PANTHER editions and then the other titles (DOCTOR STRANGE, CAPTAIN AMERICA) will follow. It is likely that among the latest DISNEY/MARVEL releases will be added a single edition of RALPH BREAKS THE INTERNET, by which we wanted to support SteelBook release in our region.
After FAC #111 THE EQUALIZER 2, we are planning to finish VENOM exclusive editions and then one of the best animation pictures of last year and one of the best comic adaptations which have ever been made - SPIDER-MAN INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE. Beautiful colors and original visuals gave us a perfect deal of space. You can look forward to seeing it.
Enjoy the weekend 🙂
