Significantly cheaper PRE ORDER price - the next cheapest seems to be Amazon at £35.97. I realise that you can buy the cut down film versions for a lot cheaper, but as a lover of the films and books, I thought this would be of interest to others! From what I gather, each story is about an hour longer, with many of the missing sub-plots reinstated.

Thanks
Exactly what I've been waiting for, thanks!
Sorry cold from me as you can pick them up individually for about the same. If you had got Dragon Tattoo and Fire from ASDA for £5 each like I did and then with the Hornets nest coming in at about £12 you would saved about £8 on this deal!

These are the extended 'full' versions. The non-edited for Cinema versions.

It's all in the description - I realise it's not for everyone, but those who want to see them as they were intended, it may be of interest. If it was the edited film versions, then I would be voting cold too!!!
There is a detailed and very spoiler-ful comparison between the editions of the first film here - schnittberichte.com/rep…139
Hmm, that's annoying. I knew these existed but hadn't heard they were coming out over here or I'd of held off on buying the others. Might try flogging my 3 on eBay now, haven't even watched Hornet's nest yet as I haven't finished the book.

For anyone interested the red band trailer of David Fincher's remake has leaked online, looks awesome imo:

Cheers for posting that! Under anyone elses direction I'd be worried, but Fincher is the man!!! Mad Led Zep cover too! I don't normally have any time for English language remakes of decent films the 'masses' can't be assed to read, but I'll definitely check this one out!
Yep, I know how you feel. When the remake was announced I knew it was coming but I still groaned, then when I heard Fincher and Craig were attached I became interested, and that trailer looks like they're going to deliver a decent film.
Yeah, it's the same kind of feeling I get with Prometheus - with a quality cast and great director, the worst it could be is 'good'! I hope!!!!
Ridley Scott returning to the universe he created? Bring. It. On. It's not as if he's got much to live up to either; aside from Aliens there wasn't another great Alien film, thanks to Fox the best even Fincher could manage was an OK Alien flick, and while I'm one of the few who prefer Resurrection to 3 even that wasn't that good. And let's just try and forget the Predator crossovers lol.
Hopefully Ridley is going to go for it with this one - he's spent far too much time dithering with mediocre genre films since Gladiator. They're mostly entertaining at best, but no classics. He needs his Oscar soon!
I read in an Empire feature a couple months back that Prometheus is no longer an Alien prequel. Apparently they don't want to tie to the franchise anymore, should still be good though.

Heat added for best price for the extended versions, not for me really, didn't like the first book or film that much. Looking forward to the remakes, but just because it's a Fincher project, supposedly with another Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross soundtrack
It's not a strict Alien prequel, but it's still connected, sort of. We won't know for sure how until it comes out as Ridley's being a bit cryptic about the whole thing;
"While Alien was indeed the jumping-off point for this project, out of the creative process evolved a new, grand mythology and universe in which this original story takes place. The keen fan will recognize strands of Alien's DNA, so to speak, but the ideas tackled in this film are unique, large and provocative."
Enjoyed the first film so much that I thought I'd pick up the next books. What a disappointment.
tempting offer but along time away to pressume this will be the lowest pre order price
Ah these movies again. Massively overrated by people who watch one subtitled movie a year at most then go on about how a remake is sacrilege and for "idiots" who can't read subtitles, forgetting the irony that the Swedish movie is for idiots who can't be bothered to read a book.

Fincher's adaptation will be so far superior to the "original", I can safely say now without even seeing the trailer.
I hope you're right. Have total faith in Fincher, but it all hangs on whether Rooney can equal or surpass Noomi!

Dont even know where to start with your comments, they are so laughable....

So by your own assertion, anybody who watches a film adaptation of a book without reading the book, is 'stupid'...? Interesting notion. You might want to look up the meaning of the word 'ironic' - Watching a Swedish movie with subtitles is for people who cant be bothered to read the book?? I dont need to explain how much of a fool you look like spouting rubbish like that.

And I suppose you know that everybody who watched this film, had not read the book - just how precisely....? Every single person I know who has watched these films (probably 15-20 people in total) has read the books beforehand, without exception....A fair cross section I would say, and in any event, what the hell difference does it make if somebody watches a film without reading the book beforehand? Your arrogance to suggest it makes you any worse if you do that, is astounding.

I had to laugh at the 'watch one subtitled movie a year' comment (after cringing of course) - Once again, you speak for the whole population, and your omnipotence is overwhelming! You then fail to see the irony (and yes, I know the meaning of the word and am using it correctly, unlike you), when you go on to say definitively that the Fincher adaptation will be 'so far superior' to this version - You know this, how precisely?? Through your crystal ball? Because he can do no wrong (Alien 3 - Ouch!)?? The truth is you have no idea what it will be like, so to show your stupidity with such a blanket statement like that, after having criticised people who condemn potential English language remakes without subtitles for the same reason, is highly amusing - Irony, indeed.

I rest my case.

By the way - Thanks to the OP, for posting a deal on three very good films, for those who like them and don't come onto threads trolling for no apparent reason. I will reserve my judgement on the English language versions until they have actually been released however....

Yes, I agree to a point. Although I do wonder as to WHY somebody comes onto a thread about a product they clearly don't like. If you were a Vegetarian would you wander into a Butchers just for the sheer hell of it, then spout off about 'meat is murder', etc, etc..? (Actually, bad example, because I bet there are one or two Vegetarians who would do precisely that - But I think you get my general point here...) oO

Giving people another point of view is helpful. An articulate opinion on why something is or isn't hot is far more valuable.

The first movie is excellent. The second movie borders on laughable. The second book was about as bad, hard to judge which was less enjoyable. I'll probably watch the third, just out of curiosity - I wont be expecting much.

You are entitled to your opinion, clearly, and it is valid - I happen to disagree with it, but that is down to taste: I don't suggest that you are wrong, any more than I suggest I am right, as clearly it is a subjective issue - One mans meat, is another mans poison... . But to sell it as fact, and purport to know about events as yet to even happen, loses one credibility, which was my issue with the initial posting. If only the original poster had showed the same restraint and understanding on matters of taste...

I agree with your view on whether something is 'hot' or not, is what this should be about - But to see a posting about something you don't even like, and express a view on the quality of the film, is not helpful in any way, or indeed the purpose of the site - Its trolling, by any definition: This is is Hot UK Deals - Unless I missed something it is not a film critique site for amateurs. I also think one should present a view with intellect - If a person doesn't have the wit or intelligence to back up a sweeping comment, or broad generalisation, they should keep their mouth shut (or fingers off the keyboard, as was the case here).

I think the original comment, and the responses since, speak for themselves - so I will leave it there.

But thanks for your input on this, and at least you show more respect than 'master chief'.

Surely the quality of the film, whilst subjective, is inherent to its perceived value. Good film; worth more - Bad film; worth less (pun). That's how I see it anyway, I would think many others would want to hear an opinion on whether the movie is going to be enjoyable or not.
Clearly have a point in regards opinions formed before watching a given movie - but to dismiss film quality in a discussion about the products worth seems...silly.

Sorry - Been off having a life elsewhere, not running scared as Master Chief seems to think - I had to give myself time to stop laughing after seeing the sad man had trawled through my previous posts to take the heat off his original comments...Anyway, back to the thread, and time to lay this to rest I think.

I do still hold with my original point, and that the value of the deal - hot or cold - is based on the item (in this case a Blu Ray - the title of which is irrelevant), and whether it is a fair price to pay for that item (ie, a Blu Ray disc). In every single case, somebody will have a view on whether a film is good or bad, so debates on the quality of the film are largely futile, and pretty unproductive: They do not establish whether £X.XX is a fair price to pay for BD that you want - thats the key thing. If you dont like the film, its always going to be too much money for you to spend - And if you want informed critical opinion on the quality of the film, you will be most likely to head over to IMDB or similar, not trawl the threads here (sorry folks, but thats just logical).

Oh most certainly not caught out (sorry Master Chief!!). Lets relate this back to where it all started, and something that our learned friend has singularly failed to respond to in any of his well-informed responses so far. He:

1) Called people 'idiots' for not reading the book version of a film, before watching the film itself
2) Implied that these films are for people who only watch one subtitled film a year
3) Implied that the purpose of the original films was for people who cannot be bothered to read the book
4) Issued a sweeping generalisation about how fans of these films would be the kind of people who criticise English language remakes
5) Proclaimed that the (so far) unfinished remakes 'will' be 'far superior' to these, without having any possible insight into whether that could be true, and without having even seen a trailer (not that seeing the trailer would have made the comment any more credible).

Any one of those alone would have been laughable, but when you combine them all, the mentality speaks for itself. And his response was 'ha ha classic', and he criticises ME for my reply! Enough said. And to date, he hasnt responded to the original post because - I would submit - he cant. Sorry - I forgot there was some slightly disturbing post about masturbation, but I didnt want to even entertain the logic/motivation of that particular remark....

So, not caught out, running scared, or anything else. I think one should show respect on these forums, and that is the etiquette most obey - This kind of 'bullying' is inexcusable, and has no place on here. I do however respect your input into this debate, and hope we can lay this to rest now. Cheers.
I see that Sainsbury's Pre-order price for Bluray is now £27.99 and DVD is £22.99

Do they honour the lower price for existing Pre-orders, does anyone know?
