The Passion: Director's Edition
So imagine my dissapointment when I go to get this thinking it is a steelbook, judging by the recent matching "Definitive Editions" packaging, and find out it is only a slip cover Sad

Was it a Fox or MGM release?

I couldn't say Nic, However I did notice this pic on the Amazon website, which could have led me to believe the steelie

*edit* just noticed the MGM logo at the top on the spine - does this mean it wont be a steelie?

Aw nooo!!! Thanks for passing info on Nic, I wonder if they've pulled the steelbook before release and amazon have an out of date pic Sad

Has anyone actually seen this in steelbook form?

I ordered it from amazon and it should arrive soon (maybe even today) so I'm gonna report if it's steelbook or they have wrong picture on their website.

Tesco had the slip case too. Not looking good. If anyone is in HMV, can you have a peek for me?

***For some reason, this is editing my post, rather than replying...*****

Was in HMV myself yesterday, and it was a slipcase too.

The odds are against us and the situation is grim.

I was looking forward to that packaging, oh well, lets hope its a nice transfer Wink

NNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

According to Fox.co.uk only the Definitive Editions are in steel books and....Jebus the movie isn't one. It's just a Braveheart Cut.
