    Great!
    Can't wait for those deleted and extended scenes, specially Imperial cadet and the extended Mimban battle.
    It'll be released on october third here in Brazil.

    I quite like the main cover. I think the UK got the short straw, the title looks good in black, not sure why it has to be yellow and black.

    The trailer is much stronger than the ones we got. Move Solo back to December, make that the teaser and release it eight months before the film, build on it with the next two trailers by showing more of the stakes and introducing the villain and I think we'd be looking at a much stronger opening than what we got. I don't think it was ever going to reach Rogue One numbers but I think it could have done much better.

    I am pleased to see that the Steelbook will pack both the 3D and 2D versions. Seems Disney is learning their lesson, I hated what they did with TFA and R1 in Brazil, forcing us to pay for two separate releases.

    TLJ was the first one to pack both versions, and Solo will follow this good trend.

    Actually looks like a pretty good set of bonus features given everything that went on. Outside of a full length making of, seems to cover a lot. Although I still wish the new movies had some featurettes on sound design or scoring like the prequels had. Nowadays the sound design is mainly taken from digital libraries so I don't know how riveting that would be.

    Yeah, that's a longer list of bonus features and deleted scenes than I expected. Looking forward to adding this to the collection (the Blu-ray; I always get the physical release and use the digital codes it comes with as an extra).

    Certainly better marketing like that bumps it up a step but at best likely 484M then 384M WW.

    It was that in some markets like Brazil as referenced above. Russia and Spain as well. In China it translates to Ranger Solo. Not that many saw it there!.

    More like Stranger Solo!

    I'm very surprised we're getting deleted scenes. I would think that it's all from the Howard shoot, although the snowball fight strikes me as a Lord and Miller idea.

    I'll be getting it.

    Thanks, Ron Howard, for stepping in and making a fun Star Wars movie. I'd doff my stormtrooper helmet to you, had I a stormtrooper helmet to doff.

    Loved the movie, day one buy for me. Very happy with the cover art and bonus features. Can't wait to see those deleted scenes and the Director/Cast roundtable :D

    Love it! Definitely a day one purchase for me. Possibly even a VOD pre-order.

    I'm not a fan of the cover art. We had several cool looking retro style posters during the theatrical run, and instead we get the generic "characters walking towards you" cover.

    Nice to see all the content they're tossing in here, though.

    An easy Google Play purchase.
    I haven't bought a Bluray or DVD in ages.
    I'm not sure what I'd play it on.

    Haven't seen Solo yet but that trailer was strong. They should have had that one originally.

    Kinda reminds me of TLJ DVD trailer - told a different story than the film did imo. In this case, trailer seems to reflect a stronger film than the previous ones did.

    There isn't a 3D version, is there? It's not the Steelbook as someone said above, no, the Steelbook is 4K and Blu-ray at Best Buy only. With The Last Jedi I found a 3D copy on eBay that was region free months after release, decided to pick it up too. I guess I'll see what shows up in the way of a 3D release.

    For the brazilian market they chose to pack the BR 3D + BR 2D + Bonus disk on the steelbook, maybe because 4K BD-Player adoption is still too low in here. (as posted by @Giovs a little above this page)

    For the US market maybe they are going with the combo you mentioned, but I am not sure.

    The Capitol building leaned left at the time. It now leans right.
