Spy thriller “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit” get a UK Steelbook with an Entertainment Store exclusive release in June
The latest attempt to reboot the Jack Ryan franchise only met with moderate box office and critical success, but with Star Trek’s Chris Pine in the lead role and Kenneth Branagh performing double duties as both director and on-screen bad guy, Jack Ryan: Shadow recruit is still a decent action thriller.
June 2nd sees the movie’s UK Blu-ray release, and Entertainment Store have picked up the exclusive Steelbook release, with a 1000 copy limited edtion.
Unfortunately this is a pretty expensive release, and seems to show that Paramount are continuing their trend – following orld War Z and Anchorman 2 – of charging frankly silly money for the steelbook premium. Yes it’s Entertainment Store setting the retail price, but the studio’s cost price is undoubtedly a factor. Paramount are in danger of ‘doing a Dsiney’ as far as their steelbooks go, which is a shame.
