Paramount Steelbook Wave March 2018

[ Edited ]

A new Paramount Steelbook wave is available for pre-order in the U.S.

Release date South Side is March 06.

I did some research and found that place holders were set-up at the online retailer, and even though pure speculation on my part, it appears at this junction to be a retail wide release for Canada.

 

Titles are:

 

Aeon Flux

Arrival

Barbarella

Ghost in the Shell

Jack Reacher

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back (Not listed in the US, but listed in Canada)

Tomb Raider

Tomb Raider: The Craddle of Life

Shooter

Terminator Genisys

The Wolf of Wall Street

 

There could be some I missed for Canada, but we have to see if BB ends up carrying them, they did in the past anyway, @BBYTerence can try and get an answer. Smiley Wink

 

The artwork is a love/hate relationship, I don't find them awesome in any way, but I can live with them:

The Ghost in the Shell cover is what most people wanted for the original steelbook release minus the way the title takes up almost half of the cover.

 

This would have been a better collection of steelbooks without the large titles and the direction of the titles.

I would take both Tomb Raider (only for preparation for the new reboot... that's it... Smiley LOL) and also Ghost in the Shell (also for "research purpose"...)  Smiley Very Happy

What are you researching?  Scarlett Johansson? Smiley Happy

 

I don't like the art on any of these SteelBooks.  I'll still pick up the TOMB RAIDER titles + AEON FLUX because those titles haven't been released on SteelBook before.

If you're looking for research, might I suggest Under the Skin?

 

As for the steelbooks -- not a fan.

Is this similar to what the now defunct H*M*V Canada did awhile back; with there sale of Paramount Steelbooks? I do not care for the steelbook art but like many have stated I can live with them.  I know I would like to buy Aeon Flux, Arrival and Ghost in the Shell; I will think over the others. Smiley Happy

@bjmaxvin67

 

They had many,

Paramount has been releasing waves of Steelbooks for several years, I simply call it recycling, Legacy FS had a thread dedicated to these "waves", and for some reason it just died out in Canada.

Sony had their Pop Art waves, Warner, Alliance Films was also big in that department, but that came to an end when Entertainment One (eOne) bought them out in 2013.

 

I believe the Music store ones you are talking about were not Steelbooks, but cheap Star Metal Paks, I got them because they were basically giving them away at 3 for $20.
