    It depends on where you order it from. You can an online currency converter to see the approx. cost in US dollars. I usually just use XE to see current conversions.

    Wow, I got not one, but BOTH my pre orders from Amazon.uk today. One was due on the 13th(or later) and the other was due on the 21st(or later) of February. Both arrived early which were purchased on January 5th 2017.

    First time ordering from Amazon.uk I'm impressed.

    How were they packaged?? I heard they are way better than the U.S. in terms of packing their movies, The U.S. is terrible at packing shit like the don't give a shit anymore which is too bad because I used to order quite a bit through them.

    Arrived(same time) in 2 packages. The single movie was in one of those cardboard slim mailers, basically a little bit bigger than the Blu-ray itself. And the other order had three Blu's in it. That was a large box, with the dimensions of a shoe box but longer. It was stuffed with that butcher type brown paper. The box had no noise when I shook it, so it was packed pretty tight. At first , I was like what the hell is this? Even with the return label saying Amazon, I was confused on what was to be inside.

    It's amazing that Amazon UK has way better customer service and packaging. Amazon's a US company for Christ's sake, Unbelievable :confused:.

    PSA Warning: Look beyond the scores and read the review.

    The scores on the new release suggest a massive upgrade...

    2017 Indicator Blu-Ray (Dr. Svet Atanasov):
    Movie: 2.0
    Video: 4.0
    Audio: 4.5
    Extras: 4.0

    Overall: 2.5

    2009 Sony Blu-Ray (Greg Maltz):
    Movie: 2.5
    Video: 2.5
    Audio: 2.0
    Extras: 2.0

    Overall: 2.5

    ...but the review, itself, suggests only a relatively minor upgrade.

    You have to wonder how useful these reviews are if it is indeed the same transfer.

    "In 2017, UK label Indicator revisited the film for an expanded special edition complete with an improved encoding of the main feature that notches up in terms of film grain definition and image depth thanks to nearly seven years of technological improvements in video compression. It isn’t a night and day difference, but the upgrade value is definitely there especially if you have a larger screen."
