Back in August we reported on distributor Eureka Entertainment and their plans to bring Osamu Tezuka's Metropolis back to the UK in Blu-ray edition form, and today the company has further elaborated upon their plans via Twitter.
It's now been revealed that the film will be released as a Limited Edition DVD/Blu-ray combo pack Steelbook, due to hit the UK on Monday, 16th January 2017. This Steelbook release (pictured above) will be limited to 2,000 units.
If the prospect of a Steelbook edition of the film does't appeal, a Standard Edition DVD/Blu-ray combo pack in standard Amaray packaging will follow on Monday, 13th March 2017.
This 2001 Madhouse film is a notable anime movie based loosely on a 1949 manga by Osamu Tezuka, which was in turn inspired by Fritz Lang's legendary film. The film boasts a script penned by Katsuhiro Otomo and direction from Rintaro.
