The penultimate Fox X-Men movie “Dark Phoenix” is getting a UK 4K Steelbook release
Talk about this release on Slack
With the takeover of Fox by Disney finally complete, the X-Men (along with the Fantastic Four and few other assorted, related characters), are back home at Marvel Studios. With much of Phase 4 planned out already, it’s likely to be a while before they make a significant impact on the MCU, but luckily for fans, Fox still have a couple of movies left to release.
While the horror-tinged New Mutants has been pushed back till next year, Dark Phoenix is out now. Picking up after the events of the truly awful X-Men: Apocalypse, the film brings to a close the timeline that began with the excellent First Class, with a re-telling of the Dark Phoenix saga, which was previously attempted by the far from excellent X-Men: The Last Stand.
The film will be picking a UK 4K steelbook release, that will also include the a Blu-ray disc.
Final art and release date are still TBC, but pre-orders are live now.
Big thanks to reader Ian G for the heads up!

This is the story of one of the X-Men’s most beloved characters, Jean Grey, as she evolves into the iconic DARK PHOENIX. During a life-threatening rescue mission in space, Jean is hit by a cosmic force that transforms her into one of the most powerful mutants of all. Wrestling with this increasingly unstable power as well as her own personal demons, Jean spirals out of control, tearing the X-Men family apart and threatening to destroy the very fabric of our planet. The film is the most intense and emotional X-Men movie ever made. It is the culmination of 20 years of X-Men movies, as the family of mutants that we’ve come to know and love must face their most devastating enemy yet — one of their own.
Gonna get it for my collection as got everything else. But my god this film sucks
Shane Dale worse than Apocalypse?
Noel Williams on a par
The train sequence is bad ass. The rest of the film is just bad.
Sept. 17 release date in America.
Wait for price drop to $14.99???
Chun Leung Ka, price drops wont happen over here
Doesn’t say exclusive to Amazon on their website or blu-ray.com so think other retailers will get this?
Andy Davies hoping Zavvi will get the 2D/ 3D version
Andy Davies it really listed as an exclusive this morning when I posted this, but they’ve updated the listing since.
I’ve edited the post and will add more links if anyone else gets it

Anyone but amazon, really don’t like them. They keep adding prime randomly and I don’t notice for months on end and have to call them and get it refunded. Very annoying (and no, it’s not me choosing the option, they added it randomly even though I never ordered for months).
What about 3D?
