The UK will be getting a few Batman steels on June 3rd , including the Batman Begins steel that was available in Japan and goes for $200 on ebay. Batman and Batman Returns are being released in the US too as mentioned earlier in the thread.

Currently available for pre-order at Zavvi, but it's not exclusive to them (i.e. it'll be up on Amazon UK eventually):


Batman Begins
The Dark Knight

Okay, so despite the fact that Zavvi has that white artwork up, Amazon just put up their listings for those two, and Rises, and they look like this:

Batman Begins
The Dark Knight
The Dark Knight Rises

Yeah I was just gonna post about that. The artwork has changed on Amazon.UK but Zavvi still has it up.



Funny story cause I just bought the Batman Begins and Dark Knight Japan steels last week, then this week I see them with the same artwork. I thought I just blew my money (even though I think I got a pretty good deal on them).Ill still be getting Begins and Dark Knight for collecting but I liked the Begins Japan even more than the one with color.These new ones I dont like as much.

It has been a LONG while since I have seen Begins, but I don't remember Batman letting the girl die until the next movie...

Still looks better than the other two. TDK is just lazy.

I actually like TDK steel here. Better than the steel I bought at Best Buy.

And I'm pretty sure he's carrying Katie Holmes after she gets sprayed with the toxin.

My problem is that it is literally the same art as the regular DVD version. Didn't even remove the actor lineup (I hate it when they put them on steels).

Personally, I think the best steel art would be the DVD Trilogy art separated. The Bat logo on the sunset (Begins), burning (Dark Knight), and breaking (Rises). Not only would it look cooler, it would continue the theme with the OG Batman movies.

IMO, the best steelbooks have a central image, the movie title, and maybe a frame or border. The simpler, the better.

And I'm pretty sure he's carrying Katie Holmes after she gets sprayed with the toxin.

Still looks like she is dead, which is supposed to be the big twist for the second movie (although nowadays it is about as much of a spoiler as who Vader is).

Zavvi updated the artwork for Begins and TDK. Now for the American releases to confirm the same artwork.

Meh. I was hoping they stick with the white style. Was curious to see what they would do with TDKR.

It was weird though cause the Begins just had his mouth colored, yet TDK had the same exact JP cover. Then an image pops up with just his mouth red on TDK.

Honestly, I didnt like the Batman Begins one with color. And thats not because I just bought the JP steelbooks.

Yeah, I didn't even realize there was a difference between the ones Zavvi posted and the JP ones, but I agree that it looks better in black and white, than in color. I still prefer those over the new covers though. The image of him holding a lifeless Rachel just doesn't fit the movie at all.

I do like the cover for Dark Knight Rises though. I might consider getting that one as I still haven't picked up the movie on BD yet.

I was hoping it would just be Agrabah at sunset or the Cave of Wonders or something, not just generic coverart.

Anyone receive your Hobbit Steelbook from Amazon.UK yet? Mine shipped and is scheduled for delivery on the 15th. Just curious if anyone got it yet.

Edit: So funny. Literally 20-minutes after I posted this question my mailman dropped mine off. It looks fantastic!

We've gotten a ton this year already. So much more in the US too. I say by June we'll be having Steelbook fatigue :D

I agree. With so many coming out so close together I have to pick and choose which ones I really like.

Yeah I just got my Japan steelbooks in yesterday and they look very awesome. I dont like him carrying Rachel either but atleast its Katie Holmes and shes looks good as hell dangling there.


I grabbed a bundle off a guy on eBay for Begins JP, TDK JP, and the Singapore TDKR (comes with film cell). I thought I paid way to much especially after seeing the coverart for the new steels coming out were the exact same. Glad the JP ones hold the uniqueness.

I have preordered Finding Nemo, bought Predator 2 and Hellboy thru Zavvi. Dredd and Star Trek preordered through Amazon.jp, and grabbed Scarface and Pitch Black through Amazon.co.uk. I have spent way to much money on steelbooks lately.

Anyone have the list of the older movies thats got the steelbooks ( Street Car Named Desire, Casablanca.... etc etc)

First, how can you claim prior non-existance to devalue a movement? I am sure the civil rights movement would love that. "Well, there was no movement to free the slaves before, so why is it relavent now?"

I wouldnt wait on it.

From the previous Upgrade and Save, can you preorder then do a return/rebuy with the coupon to get $5 off? I want to preorder a couple steels so I know I get it, but would like to use the upgrade and save. IDK.

It's region free, just like 99% of all Disney releases in the UK. Though not always correct, the page at Amazon UK for the regular edition also says Region Free in the title.
