Called into Sainsbury's earlier and spotted a substantial amount of stock of arrow video movies on bluray.

In my nearest store they had all of the stock in the picture provided. I'll post it in the comments in case it can't be seen.

Happy hunting!

Great price for Arrow releases, the transfer quality is always top notch. I just hope that those clear plastic cases are for display only but I'm a bit concerned that they're not as that's how they appear on the advertising poster. If they're the usual editions then they're worth about £20-30 each so this is a real bargain, but somehow they look like budget versions.

£8 for the remastered Donnie Darko!!! Bargain!

That deadwood at £12 seems a better deal

be aware they dont have any extras, got a couple and found out they are bare bone releases no booklets or second extras discs

if you scroll down they tell you this on their facebook page

There are still extras on the first disc for all of these. Confirmed these are 'stripped down' editions, so just the main disc and no booklet - Donnie Darko, The Hills Have Eyes and Hellraiser haven't been available separately outside of a limited edition version or box set until now.

This version of Donnie Darko is the Theatrical Cut disc only, and no booklet. The one available from other retailers for about £13-15 includes the Director's Cut disc as well as a booklet and slipcover.

I might go for Videodrome or Hellraiser myself next time I pop down, and use up some of my Nectar points in the process. That said, the newly restored Blu-ray of Michael Mann's Heat is out in a couple of weeks and Sainsbury's will probably stock it so I might wait for that instead...

Again, these all have on-disc extras on the disc (though very few on Battle Royale, so you're better off getting the 2-disc version of that). I went to my local yesterday and had a look at the back of them to check.

Btw, if anyone's considering getting John Carpenter's Christine from Sainsbury's, you'd be better off tracking down the Limited Dual Format Edition instead (Indicator Series). This cheaper supermarket version has literally no extras, nor a booklet or DVD copy. The Limited Edition is apparently about to sell out so worth getting from HMV (2 for £25) or elsewhere.

However, £10 for Carpenter's Assault on Precinct 13 is a good deal as that's a brand new disc from Second Sight and I watched it recently (excellent film, one of his best). Looks great and has a tonne of decent extras too, many newly recorded. There's a Limited Edition version still available elsewhere but it's £15-20 (includes soundtrack CD, art cards).

Some great prices there. Thanks for that OP.:)

gonna pop down to my local sainsburys and see what's about will post any pics later to help clarify things with extras

this is awesome, my local already stocks a few so hopefully they will have more now.

Yes, it's the first disc only. If you want the second disc as well - which contains the Director's Cut and several more extras - you'll have to buy the 2-disc version (with booklet and slipcover). There was also a 4-disc limited edition version which is now sold out from most places (though you may be lucky and find a copy in HMV or elsewhere).

been to sainsburys and it's a 1 disc version of donnie darko no slip cover or book and just the theatrical version so a bare bones release for £8

Glad I bought the proper version now from hmv

Not with it's audio issues.

Some of these titles might be in the HMV 5 FOR £30, they normally have some ARROW titles among the selection!, if anyone is interested.

The Tarantino box set for £15 looks like an ok deal as well. Your saving a few quid on it there too, think I'll pop in on Saturday morning to see what my local has. Head added too

One of the best genre labels out there. The Criterion of cult films, in a way. So yes, a label to get excited about IMO.

Never thought i'd see a blu ray of thief on sale at sainsburys in 2017. very weird.

anyone who picked up thief know if its the two disc version? i cant get into town for a couple of days.

There was a 2-disc version when it was first released (with slipcover and booklet) but it sold out fairly quickly. It's not available anymore, so this is the only Blu-ray edition of Thief still on the market (in the UK, at least).

As some have already posted, all these in Sainsbury's are 1-disc with no bonus discs or booklets. That said, the copies of The Delta Force I saw in my local mentioned a booklet on the back (could be misprint though) and at least one person found a booklet in their copy of Thief, so you never know.
