This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Without a doubt one of the best films ever made. Remastered in 4k but only normal blu rays from the negative. Also includes blu rays of Sympathy for Lady Vengeance, and Sympathy for Mr Vengeance. The film won't suit everyone as it's in Korean. It also has a VERY uncomfortable scene, (that I can't get into without a major spoiler), that might not sit well with some people.
But if you don't mind watching a film with subtitles, and love a good thriller. You would seriously struggle to find a better film.
You can pick it up on normal blu ray fairly cheaply. But if you're a fan of this film, you might be seriously interested in this.
It has already sold out on zavvi, despite being a fiver more expensive.
Go on....treat yourself.

The product description is a little misleading so I think it's best to point out: There is NOT a 4K UHD presentation of the film in this set. The 4K refers to the restoration only, it's a Blu-ray set.

Also sold out on the Arrow Official site

not a 4k ? missed that.
The proper 4K print will be in cinemas from 2nd August - if you want a sneak preview it’s showing at Bristol’s Watershed ahead of nationwide release on Saturday afternoon at 15:45. (This will be the best version ever shown in the UK)

As pointed out, this is only a blu-ray of the restoration - will be better than the Tartan print but disappointing that none of these boutique labels like Arrow, Criterion or Eureka are bothering to step-up to putting out 4K discs yet, which seems ludicrous if they’re so concerned with being the cinephile’s optimum format.

I misunderstood that too then. I'll be cancelling my order. Thought perhaps not. As it's only Oldboy I've got on blu ray. Not the other two vengeance ones. Only have them on DVD

I really enjoyed this and the remake to be honest. Have some heat.

Except that your release doesn't include Sympathy for Mr Vengeance and Lady Vengeance, and it doesn't come with a 100-page book.

Plus it's sealed. Seriously, man, please open it.

I avoided the remake, purely due to my own snobbery.

They're probably hoping to make money twice, by selling it to mugs like me that had oldboy on DVD, then blu ray, then this slightly better blu ray. Before finally releasing a proper 4k version on disc, that I'll have to pay for all over again. They might also get money from people for the 4k digital version.

I updated the description to reflect this. Cheers for pointing it out. I'd been fooled. I'm still buying it though.
This and I Saw the Devil are amazing Korean films
Probably worth mentioning the other films that come with the package as £24 for just oldboy seems steep

Cool. It's in the description but I'll add it to the title
"Without a doubt" nope, there's plenty of doubt, a terrible film

Well, it's always subjective, but the aggregate reviews on various sites would disagree.
Just watched the remake and enjoyed it. Not seen the original though (yet).

What are the other two films in this set like?

All three films are brilliant. I don't understand why Oldboy gets all the attention, because the other two Vengeance films are on a par with it.

Although they're known as the vengeance "trilogy", they were never planned, as far as I'm aware, as a trilogy. They just have very similar themes. I can't remember much of Mr Vengeance as I have not seen it in well over 10 years. But they're all well worth watching. I've not seen the remake, but from what I've heard from those who have seen both (they all saw the original first), the original is much better. The remake also misses out some of the more disturbing themes. Though I believe they were not in the Manga graphic novels/comics, that the film was based on. I own the first couple, but have never read them (waiting until I can get the rest at a reasonable price).

Yeah it's a great bargain, already had it pre-ordered at the same price elsewhere though! HMV are a lot more reliable than the likes of Amazon on pre-orders as well.
Heat from me. Love Oldboy, and i can finally get around to the other vengeance films.

Is this true? I'd love to see Oldboy in the cinema!! Big fan of the other films, Lady Vengeance is my favourite of the three (and I did see that in the cinema when it came out).

Yes. Why would I lie???

I’ve even done some work based on your username.
Assuming you’re in Cardiff - one screening at the Cineworld Cardiff 20:00 next Monday night.
