Acclaimed war drama “1917” is getting a Zavvi exclusive 4K Steelbook release
Talk about this release on Slack
1917, an epic ‘single shot’ drama from director Sam Mendes, is picking up lots of well-deserved praise.
Zavvi are bringing us the UK exclusive 4K steelbook release, and pre-orders are live right now.
Sam Mendes, the Oscar®-winning director of Skyfall, Spectre and American Beauty, brings his singular vision to his World War I epic, 1917.
At the height of the First World War, two young British soldiers, Schofield (George MacKay) and Blake (Dean-Charles Chapman) are given a seemingly impossible mission. In a race against time, they must cross enemy territory and deliver a message that will stop a deadly attack on hundreds of soldiers—Blake’s own brother among them.
Excited to see the film – but NOT impressed with this £29.99 price tag Zavvi seem to be instilling on all their new 4K Steelbooks. I finally got to see Ad Astra last week, and thank f*** I didnt waste my hard earned £29.99 on that pre-order!
Really puzzled why 4K discs are £10 dearer. They don’t cost any more to produce than a basic Blu-Ray. Also, as it’s an exclusive, how can the “reduced” price be less than a recommended retail price when the product will never be sold for anything more?
