New Steelbook releases for w/c 26th November, including The Amazing Spider-Man and Ted
Here’s the first of a (hopefully) regular feature, highlighting some new steelbook releases for the week ahead. We won’t try to cover ALL steelbook releases, as there will be far too many, but we hope to offer a selection we think you’ll be interested in.
This week, we have a mix of new and catalogue releases.
For new releases, the big two this week are comic book reboot The Amazing Spider-Man and comedy Ted.
While many questioned the need for a reboot of Spider-Man so soon after Sam Raimi’s trilogy, Marc Webb’s movie managed to convince, with a clever re-imagining of web-head’s origin, and great performances from the cast, especially the two new leads, Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone.
