The Wicker Man pre order up:

Seems its only the theatrical version (unless the specs change):

Maybe the DC will be included in SD?

Don't think the specs have been announced yet http://www.blu-ray.com/news/?id=10850 if you want the steelbook i'd pre-order now, Zavvi's recent Roger Rabbit steelbook sold out quickly and is now going for upwards of £30 already.

Thanks - ordered, though I'll be very surprised if its actually limited to 3000 as I read.
Theres no way the DC will look good in HD as it sadly only survives on 1" tape :(

Looks to be the same as the French release except for this addition: "The Making of a Thriller – A documentary on the making of Dressed to Kill featuring writer-director Brian De Palma, George Litto, stars Angie Dickinson, Nancy Allen, Dennis Franz and more!"

Arrow are VERY hit 'n' miss so I wouldn't rush out to pre-order an 'upgrade'.

I believe so. Doubt it's something I'd bother to watch again though.

Some posts on the forum are saying the transfer is taken from a scan used last year for cinema re-release I think.

Please don't start your sentences like that. For a second there I thought we lost Van Damage.

Decent actioner plays like DIE HARD in a hockey arena. Plenty action, though the stunt doubling is very poor. Don't think I'd bother to import this one. Might wait for a local release.

Hope so... but can't honestly see Universal bothering. I'll just be happy if it's the NC-17 version.
