I️ like the despicable me movies but that artwork is bland af.

If there wasn’t a John wick chapter 3 coming out I’d bite on that release, dog the artwork.
If you are concerned about paying for 4K discs just sell them individually to offset your total cost. Someone on the forums here or over at Blu-ray is always looking to buy them.

So many dumb Popart and other steelbooks in the later part of this year.   This thread has slowed down massively.  It has been really nice actually;  I haven't felt the need to buy very many steels lately.

 

Honestly I think we're in a large lull of BD movie buying for most people.   I have noticed the slowdown in traffic at my BB stores and from talking to employees.  The regulars haven't been coming in to buy and media revenue is down overall.  Personally, I think its because things cost too much and 4K UHD needs to get cheaper.  The big publishers need to start doing a better job. 

 

That said, my BB store just put up a new steelbook panel today.  It's located right before the television series section.  A bunch of old steels came back for $9.99-$14.99.   I only bought Gods of Egypt today since I had nearly everything else.  Bad movie but the art is very nice.

It's just a novelty VHS case, not a steelbook though right?

 

Yes, it's just a novelty VHS cassette shaped case, but figured I'd note it here.  I think the Target exclusive Cars 3 with the booklet will also be $10...not sure on any other black Friday 4K/blu/DVDs that would be of note or interest or a great deal, whether at Target, Walmart, Best Buy, or amazon.


SPLASH!

I love that Gods of Egypt steelbook design and the movie is kind of dumb fun.  $14.99 for it is a no brainer especially when you consider it includes a 3D disc as well.

Agreed.  If you're bitching about a steelbook with a 3D disc for $14.99, you're really doing it wrong.

I guess I haven't been tracking as closely as I needed to lately.  While browsing the BB BF ad and jumping to BB.com, there seems to be updated cartoony/alternate artwork steels (ala Wonder Woman but more life like in some cases) of the previously released DC movies for $15 (on sale currently).

Can't decide if I should pass on these or just get the $4 BvS ulitimate which is the one I haven't seen in ultimate format.  Yes, I know most people were critical of the movie but stepping back and not comparing to the DK Miller series, it was not as bad as everyone made it out to be (other than ZuckerLuthor, that was horribly done).  So I'm curious to watch the extended/ultimate editiona nd for $4, what the heck.

 

Edit:  Oh, looks like the JL: New Frontier steel is on sale for $15 if anyone missed it or to get a price adjustment.

Those comic style DC steels came out a couple weeks ago. Don’t think they got mentioned here because they’re fugly. I️ think most of us rely on the Bluray.com forums for our steelbook news.

Speaking of there are pics of the Ragnarok steel and it’s awesome looking. Also pics of the Kingsmen steelbooks which are more comic style garbage. I️ got last years Kingsmen steel from Best Buy and probably would’ve picked up golden circle had it matched that release but am gonna have to pass now, also due to golden circle not being particularly good.

4K + 3D is definitely the exception and not the rule.

Literally every Best Buy steelbook going back to Thor: The Dark World has had 3D in it, so 3D being in their steelbooks has been the rule and not the exception. Only Doctor Strange and GOTG Vol.2 have had steelbook options without 3D, but they DID have one with. This is the first to not offer it at all, unless they add another listing down the line or this one gets changed.

I was talking about movies in general, not just MCU movies.  Is it the distributor that determines what discs do in a bundle or the retailer?

You mean the thick ugly tin two sets of hinges?

 

Also, Best Buy messed up my order. I canceled Atomic Blonde and Valerian, and they sent me both. Atomic Blonde arrived with no email notice at all, and so far no charges on my credit card either.

You will get it for free. Same situation occurred with my cancelled West World.

Got Kill Bill Vol I steelbook for $8.99 on Amazon.

I saw this and Volume II in store at Best Buy recently.  Don't recall the price but they very well may have been $8.99 each.

Ahh thanks for the tip, had no idea these were being sold in stores too and amazon doesn’t have the Vol II steel online. I checked and the Best Buy’s by me do have it for $7.99

Yea, I saw them under steelbooks for the holidays. It has other ones like the Deadpool reprint with a Christmas themed j-card (Deadpool wearing a santa hat). Alien Covenant was part of it, and I can't remember what else. It's like 20ish steelbooks, all for $7.99 (or was it $9.99 when I saw it...)

Justice League (4K) without 3D.  It'll be double dip and possible New Director Cut coming soon!  I pass on Justice league.  Hope THOR include 3D version

3D isn't a huge draw for Justice League, according to CinemaBlend:

I found a crapload of steelbooks coming out on the 5th, most of them re-dos of past stuff, from Best Buy.  Let me go through the site and find them all.
