UK sites always play safe when a product is on pre-order and, aside for the confirmation, there are no news about this release.

Better to pre-order it, it´s free to do so... when the official details are available, and if they´re not to your liking then you can cancel it.

Better to pre-order something with uncertainty, then to regret it when it´s sold out.

People are freaking out a bit here. There will be a regular release that isn't a steel book as well; It'll be limited to how ever many they can sell. ;)

For what it's worth, the blu-ray.com article does mention a standard Blu-Ray release in addition to the limited edition, Zavvi-exclusive steelbook. The steelbook is also limited to 4,000 copies per the zavvi.com link.

Technical specs and supplemental features to be included with this upcoming release are yet to be revealed, but the preliminary release date set by StudioCanal is October 14th.

Cult horror classic in which a devout Christian policeman (Woodward) is summoned to a remote Scottish island to investigate the disappearance of a child. While there he uncovers a bizarre pagan cult, led by Lord Summerisle (Lee). As preparations for a sinister ritual celebration reach fever pitch, the policeman begins to realise what role the islanders intend him to play. Britt Ekland and Ingrid Pitt co-star.

The steelbook looks amazing. There is no way I could settle for a standard release when I know the steelbook is out there. I also have the Wooden Box set for the dvd, still shrink wrapped, so clearly I have a weakness for such gimmicks.

I knew that, but my posts where made with the assumption the TheShape wanted the limited stuff.

I pre-ordered one of the SteelBooks earlier. I kind of doubt it'll sell out that fast, but it probably will sell out before the release date in October.
