I hope the steelbook about to come out has that version, probably not though.

I`ll go nosey, might be.

Sounds great.

Best Mark.

PS just looked and it mentions the restoration so hopeful and pre ordered as only 1000 copies.

Hi all, it reads as if it is the new 4K remastered disc on the book and the blurb, but there is Rumour that it could be the older version.

I`ve asked Zavvi to check and they are getting back to me.

The tin or steelbook for Spartacus looks great, limited to 1000 copies as is the Blues Brothers one.

I`ll keep you all updated.

Best Mark.

Hi Paul I`d like to see the Jaws 4K remaster from 2012.

I wish they would do this with Oliver and Great Escape and various others on Blu Rays and drop the prices a bit to get the format going properly.

I think actual new 4K is muddying the waters really.

Spot on usual Blu Ray 1080p projected is absolutely all I would ever need.

But I do wish they would shoot 70mm real film and take that to Blu Ray. A perfect match.

Best Mark.

The one from Zavvi is apprently the right 4K transfer version, boring looking disc, but nice SB.

1000 in the UK and apprently selling fast.

ZVC5 code gets you 5% off at zavvi.

Best Mark.

Got a copy of the steel book Spartacus this morning in the post............£15.14 inc postage.
I thought it would have been more expensive than that though.

Sounds daft but I dont want to open it although I do.......might just order another copy for future investment......
