In a world of streaming and digital downloads, it’s comforting to know that there are still plenty of people out there who can appreciate the importance of owning a physical item. This is especially true for film enthusiasts – the personal connections we hold with movies are something to be celebrated and cherished.

While simply owning a standard DVD, Blu-ray or 4K UHD of a beloved film is good enough for many, there are those, ourselves included, who can’t help but want more – and that ‘more’ is available, thankfully, in the form of some incredible Steelbooks.

Steelbooks come in all shapes and sizes. Some editions are simple, like the Amazon exclusives – a Blu-ray or 4K UHD disc wrapped in a metal case, emblazoned with some beautiful artwork. Though, even these can be diverse, with special editions, like the collaborations between Zavvi and arthouse Mondo, rethinking iconic movie artwork in all-new ways.

Some Steelbooks strive to please true collectors and film enthusiasts. Arrow Videos can always be relied on to deliver a stunning cult classic, with a case featuring stunning artwork and discs loaded with bonus material.

Likewise, Titans Of Cult specialise in creating true celebrations of some of cinema’s greatest achievements, offering pretty-as-hell Steelbooks alongside grin-inducing collectable and limited edition memorabilia.

To help you build up an incredible movie library, we’ve collected up some of our favourite Steelbook editions from around the web. It’s a list of both released and upcoming movie editions - don’t forget to check back regularly, as we’ll be updating the list as more special, limited and collectable editions are released.
