Yesterday, Scream Factory announced the upcoming releases of three brand new steelbooks, in the same art style as the John Carpenter ones they released last year. Their first batch of steelbooks were beautiful and these new ones are no different. Army of Darkness, The Howling and Lifeforce will be released on August 14th, 2018.
From Scream Factory’s Facebook page :
**MORE LIMITED-EDITION STEELBOOKS THIS SUMMER**
Our past John Carpenter Steelbook® releases are still moving at a steady pace so we’ve decided to the test the waters further by offering up some non-Carpenter films this Summer! Best-selling fan favorites ARMY OF DARKNESS, THE HOWLING and LIFEFORCE are being reissued in limited-edition Steelbook packaging with only 10,000 of each being produced. Official Release Date for three are August 14th but they will ship two weeks early if you order directly from us.
– The artwork you see pictured on both come to us from by artist Laz Marquez. If you order directly from our site, your packaging will also include a 28.5” x 16.5” rolled lithograph of the illustrations. The litho will not be available through any other retailer and only 1,000 of them each are being made.
– Steelbooks will be shrinkwrapped. The Blu-rays included inside will have the same content (but with different disc label art) that is currently available in their respective Collector Edition releases. The exception to this is LIFEFORCE, which we’re pleased to announce that we’ve been the green-light to do brand-new 4K film transfers on both versions of the film!
– To our overseas fans, we regret to inform that we only have US & Canadian territory rights for these films so will be unable to ship internationally from our site unfortunately
