Geek Peek: Avatar SteelBook UK Blu-ray

Posted March 2, 2010 02:12 PM by Juan Calonge

20th Century FoxAvatar still hasn't an official Blu-ray date, but British retailers already have received cover art images for the upcoming BD edition. The image posted indicates that the UK branch of 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment will release James Cameron's megablockbuster in a SteelBook release with artcards and a printed "Activist Survival Guide."



The second disc is a DVD.

No other release details are available at the moment.

Thanks to forum member "che84".

Not sure I like the cover of this one...it's framed a fair bit tighter than the one-sheet posters that were out in theatres.

Everything else looks great.

Hmmm I really do wonder how many blu-ray editions of this movie will come out. I understand companies want to earn money but somehow I got a feeling they will release 4-5 versions of this before releases a complete final definitive version.

@ Malibu (or anyone who would like to answer) - I have seen other people mention that they buy multiple versions of the same film. I understand if the original was substandard or something like that. But to plan on buying multiple versions of the same file is beyond my decidedly novice comprehension. (I'm rather new to Blu)

Would someone mind explaining? It seems like a waste of money to me...?

This looks like a BD and DVD set (on separate discs).

I'm sure in the US we will likely get:
1) Store specific steelbook
2) Single disc
3) Single BD + DVD
4) Single BD + DVD + Digital copy
5) Four disc (2DB +DVD + digital copy)
6) Collector's set (Four discs + useless cards)
7) Ultimate Collectors set (same as #6 but in a big box and costing $30 more)
And that's just the 2D releases
In 2011, after people have had the chance to get 3D gear over the holidays, Fox will come out with multiple 3D editions

What's up with the UK getting all the steelbooks? Are the U.S. gonna get these?

Can't say I'm a big fan of steelbooks. They are too common now for me to consider them as special or collector's editions. The cards and 'activist survival guide' just screams of 'cheap ploy'. But the greatest reason is that after years of DVD collecting, shelf space is far more valuable than gimmicky packaging. Unless an SE has custom packaging that appeals to me (e.g. the 'batpod' Dark Knight CE), I would much rather standard sized packaging. I even go so far as to import US releases as the covers are half the thickness of those sold here in Australia (and usually has cover art that isn't tarnished by hideously large classification ratings!)

I really don't think many will have 3D in 2011. Still the majority have DVD and still hasn't even gotten bluray yet (shame on them). This 3D thing will not take off so soon like the studio thinks

@ Jason_Gladstone, some people like to collect the different versions because the cover art is slightly different. I don't do this, but some do.

US and Canada wont have a SteelBook until 4th Quarter, if then. Supposedly Camerons doesnt want any special editions, etc.

I love the film but i've never liked that close up image of Neytiri on the cover and on the film posters.It dosen't even look like her and dosen't give a good impression of the movie if you don't know much about it.I've already got the survival guide book and its great but i reckon this will be just a sample of it.I'm not a big fan of steelbooks but i reckon it would be nice to have Avatar in one seeing i haven't got any but who knows what exclusives the different sites will hand out.
