The Fifth Element in 4K has dropped to $13.47 on Amazon US. Meaning you can get it delivered for £15.71 postage included which I think is a steal!

I've been keeping an eye on it as its one of my favourites but for some reason they have not released the 4K version in the UK yet. When they do eventually get round to doing so it will be a long while before it gets to a price like this. It is not subject to import tax because its under the thereshold. The 4K copy will be region free as will the Blu Ray [if they are using the old blu ray discs]. The Digital UV copy can only be redeemed in the US but there are ways around that if you have a quick google.

EDIT: See below. Looks like Blu Ray is region locked so will only play on Region 1 players.

Mustn't Google Blue opera singing alien
This 4K disc will be region free but the regular blu-ray disc that is included is region locked as it's the mastered in 4K disc that got released a while back.

tempting. The thing that holds me back is (potential) region locked Bluray and region locked UV. Couldn't care less about either myself as I only buy for the 4K discs but I normally eBay the standard bluray and uv codes to bring the cost of buying 4K films down a bit but will be very hard to when they are wrong region.

Still used to love this film back in the day....

The region locking is what holds me back as well otherwise I would have bought. Great film with a great transfer to 4K.

You need to take your welding goggles off and watch again, Riddick. It's a classic.

(As at least 2/3rds of the Riddick movies are.)
Threshold for import fees (VAT, plus courier's handling fee) is £15 inc shipping so not clear how a £15.71 item sidesteps the obligation, unless pre-paid?

Amazon always charge import fees when they think its payable. It's why I didn't buy it when it was a higher price as Amazon automatically added on £10 in import fees at checkout. So yea, fees are usually prepaid with amazon. It looks like in this case they don't think there is any that needs paying.

The £15 import limit is for item only, VAT for shipping costs only come into play when your item is over. October's limit is $20.35, so this is well under. If an item is on or around the limit, Amazon's pre-paid fees kicks in.

Informative post, thanks.
This movie is excellent in 4K. The benchmark for back cat titles imo
