    Happy St. Patrick's Day, RoundUppers!

    Mary Poppins Returns for me. And, I'm fascinated by the idea of Becoming Astrid. So I may spring for that someday as well.

    Hope there's something for you this week!

    As always, thank you for your work, Mike!

    Big week for me.

    Into the Spider-Verse and -- finally -- Far From Heaven are on the way from Amazon, and I'll get Mary Poppins Returns from Target.

    Becoming Astrid had a really brief run at my arthouse and looked potentially interesting but I wasn't able to get to it. I'll look for that whenever it hits a streaming platform.

    Some prices from Best Buy web site:

    Mary Poppins Returns

    4K Steelbook $34.99
    4K $29.99
    Blu $24.99
    DVD (not available? I also checked walmart.com and deepdiscount.com, no one shows a DVD only release)

    Mary Poppins (1964)
    Blu Steelbook $19.99

    Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse
    4K $27.99 (corrected)
    Blu Steelbook $27.99
    Blu $22.99
    DVD $19.99

    I have Spider-Man 3D pre-ordered from Amazon Germany. If anyone wants to look for it there, note that the title is slightly different: Spider-Man: A New Universe. Region coding is not yet verified, though it's expected to be all region/region-free as with Sony's other releases.

    Thanks, Mike! Just Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse on UHD for me.

    It's frustrating how foreign films and movies from small indie distributors are increasingly DVD only. It feels like we're sliding backwards.

    Where are you seeing that $24.99 price for Into the Spider-Verse 4K? The Best Buy website has a preorder price of $27.99.

    Sorry, my mistake. It is $27.99. Corrected above in my list.

    Now I can see why this gives Mike a headache, and I only listed a couple titles. ;)

    I didn't know Best Buy was doing a steelbook for the original. Cool.

    If I didn't already have the original on Blu-ray, I'd probably try for both of them in steelbook form, as I like the artwork on the Returns steelbook way better than the regular release artwork. However, since I do have the original already, I'll just get the basic edition for uniformity's sake. It would be weird to have one keepcase and one steelbook next to each other for the same series of films. Besides, I don't really need to be paying more for steelbooks this week anyway given the sheer volume of new titles I want.

    But the original's steelbook does look cool.

    Thanks, as always, Mike. Somewhere down the road when a sale occurs, I will pick up Spider-verse and Detour.

    Thanks for pointing that out, Jeff! :thumbsup:

    Ron posted the link in the MPR 4k release thread a couple days ago and I thought I had added it to thi week's WRU, but I must have lost it in a copy/past error.

    It has now been added.

    I pre-ordered it from Amazon as soon as I saw Ron's post...so I'll be a guinea pig. If it doesn't ship, I don't think it'll be too hard to find a copy elsewhere.

    Good luck with that. The standard Blu-ray edition had a listing at full price for a while and then disappeared. Regardless of the status of the listings, I've just gotten to the point where I don't trust Amazon with a Disney title. I don't even bother anymore.

    That's exactly my situation as well. I found the link initially in Ron's post and pre-ordered it thinking why not? If I don't get a shipping notice by Tuesday then I'll cancel it and go to the store.

    Mary Poppins and Spider-Man at some point; I'm just not entirely sure when. Thanks Mike!
