PROGRAM DESCRIPTION
Vengeance has no boundaries in the crime-drama, The Limey, which arrives on 4K Ultra HD™ + Blu-ray™ + Digital SteelBook October 11 from Lionsgate. Starring Oscar® nominees Terence Stamp (1962, Actor in a Supporting Role, Billy Budd), Lesley Ann Warren (1982, Actress in a Supporting Role, Victor/Victoria), and Peter Fonda (1997, Actor in a Leading Role, Ulee’s Gold), The Limey follows a British ex-con searching for the truth about his daughter’s “accidental” death. Directed by Steven Soderbergh (Out of Sight and Sex, Lies, and Videotape), The Limey will be available for the suggested retail price of $27.99.

OFFICIAL SYNOPSIS
Oscar® nominees Terence Stamp (Billy Budd), Lesley Ann Warren (Victor/Victoria), and Peter Fonda (Ulee’s Gold) team up with the director of Out of Sight and Sex, Lies, and Videotape for this critically acclaimed thriller that Newsday called “a lean and mean treat for savvy action lovers.” British ex-con Wilson (Terence Stamp) arrives in Los Angeles to investigate the mystery of his daughter’s “accidental” death. His prime suspect, the wealthy, heavily guarded music promoter Terry Valentine (Peter Fonda), is no easy target. Propelled into an increasingly brutal search for truth, Wilson, with single-mindedness and terrifying precision, moves unstoppably toward revenge.

Excellent - I've been dithering whether to buy the French 4K UHD, released a year and a half ago, but won't have to now. Only snag is: Best Buy to do not ship to Europe. Purchasing from re-sellers on eBay is horribly expensive. Of course, one can always wait patiently another year or so, until the normal retail version is made available.

Cool.

On a related note for Terence Stamp fans, he was awesome in The Art of the Steal which is a great heist/sting movie with a fantastic cast and tons of rewatchability.

Unfortunately for Canadians, these Best Buy exclusives never make it to Best Buy Canada and Best Buy USA won't ship to Canada. Hope someone in the UK releases this 4K. Shipping from the UK to Canada is a third of the shipping costs from getting discs from our neighbour across the boarder. Terrific movie. Wish Paramount would restore and release "The Lawyer", another Barry Newman movie. Very underrated actor. Terence Stamp and the entire cast are top notch in the Limey.

Keep an eye on Sunrise Records; they do pick up some of these Best Buy exclusive Steelbooks for the Canadian market.

Zavvi has been getting in most of the Best Buy exclusives (Cabin in the Woods and American Psycho for example), though sometimes it takes a few months.

I saw The Limey on Prime about a year ago and was impressed with the picture quality. I just received the Region B Limey Blu-ray and it's even better than the stream. A standout disc that, unfortunately, doesn't have any extras.
