It's out Monday but some etailers post it out early so you still get it on release date (or before). I suspect Sainsburys will not send out until Monday. I'm happy as they're a lot cheaper and they gave an extra 20% off for first time orders (which I discovered thanks to this forum).

I'm ok waiting but I'm not going to get until a week Saturday as It probably wont fit through the door.
Never used them before and find it strange that there is no activity with the order.

I can wait. Sainsburys have been very quick with my previous orders, but I knew that that wouldn't last. And for that price, I don't much care when I get it.

The offer's ended, sadly, wish I'd taken it.

I ordered it from work at 34.96, minus my discount, and got it for 29.72. Already put down a 2 quid deposit and gonna trade in my Mummy trilogy set and a couple other blu's. Hopefully only pay a few quid for it in the end. Happy with that!

Dont' hold your breath on getting it from Sainsburys. I'm still waiting for Spartacus BluRay which they have been claiming has been out of stock since the 22nd May.

It's on every DVD stockist shelf in town.

Yeah, just got my confirmation e-mail. £24 and may arrive on release date. Well pleased. WB have made a fortune out of me. This is the 5th time I've bought some of the films in this set.

Got the email from Sainsburys as well.

Realise that I haven't seen Superman II in something like 30 years since I first saw it, for the one and only time, in a double bill at the old ABC cinema in Edinburgh. Have never seen S:III in widescreen as I didnt go to the cinema to see that.

The DVD of Superman 2 in the DVD tin was awful quality so I'm really hoping the BD will be a ton better.

The actual transfer quality wasn't the worst, but I seem to remember that the compression for that one was absolutely diabolical.

Is it just me or.....

...Are AMAZON seriously going off the boil these days?

It is supposed to be out on Monday, I have had it ordered since March, I am a PRIME customer....

...and my order shows ZERO movement/processing and they cannot expect to get it to me any sooner than Tuesday? And knowing ROYAL MAIL these days, that means Wednesday at the earliest. Whereas on here, there are several members, ordering from other suppliers and they are already expecting theirs. Of course I do not begrudge them for their orders - fair play to them - but I just wonder why one of the largest suppliers around, seems to fail so consistantly, at something they have been doing well for years.

PS: Off topic side note...Likewise the Blu of PAUL. GRRRRRRRR!
