I hope the boutique labels' trend of having a box of useless trash ends. Unfortunately, everyone now copies Arrow so the space-wasting box, book and tiny poster (if you can something that small a poster) is now requisite but a tape too? I get it, Hackman records people on tape in the movie but stop needlessly driving up the price.

Totally agree. However, I believe all the boutique labels issue "Standard Edition" 4K HDR discs, after the Limited Edition. StudioCanal typically allows a year interval between the "Limited Edition" and the "Standard Edition" releases. The most honest way to go about things, would be to go the Second Sight or Umbrella Entertainment route, where both "Limited Edition" and "Standard Edition" releases are offered on the same date. Doesn't seem to hurt their "Limited Edition" sales at all.

In general, I don't dislike swag, unless it's something goofy like a cassette tape that I would need to obtain special equipment in order to play. I offloaded my last working cassette deck years ago.
I still have a 30ish year old Denon one. Last time I checked, it still works.

Cassette Tape? I'd be happy to have soundtrack cd that I can rip but the cassette is useless. Why not put it on reel to reel?

It’s not useless to me.

I’m happy this is region free, now I can buy it!

I hope these UK labels start releasing stuff on 4k like, oh, DARLING, HAMLET, RUGGLES OF RED GAP, that have been released on Blu in the UK but not here so I can finally get them.

Any tips on where to best order this?
For many years i used to order UK discs from Amazon UK until they started charging a ton of money for shipping and now i shop at other websites like Ebay, Zavvi, Diabolik and other sites. Currently if i were to order this at Amazon UK it will be a total of $79.13.

My old stereo (including cassette player) is hooked up to my computer, so I can theoretically transfer this. Although, really, what they should do is give you a digital download code with the cassette.
