Zavvi Birthday Weekend 2022: Your Guide To Launches And Deals

It’s our favourite time of year – Zavvi birthday weekend is here!

Starting from today (Friday 19th August), we have four days of awesome gifts for you, from exclusive collectables to new steelbooks of your favourite movies that you won’t find anywhere else.

We’ll have plenty more announcements over the weekend, so stay tuned to Zavvi’s social media pages for the latest news. Until then, here are some of our first exclusive launches and deals you can expect.

Middle-earth Collector’s Edition

The holy grail for Tolkien fans, this 31-disc collector’s set brings together Peter Jackson’s Lord Of The Rings and Hobbit trilogies on 4K Ultra HD (in both their extended and theatrical versions) for the first time.

In addition to the remastered films there are brand new bonus features, seven art cards, and a 64-page booklet about the groundbreaking cinematic saga.

Launch time: midnight 19th August.

The Thing Steelbook

Can you believe the John Carpenter classic is 40 years old? This ice-cold monster movie is getting the steelbook treatment courtesy of our friends at Titans Of Cult. In addition to the remastered 4K movie, it comes with some stunning collectables.

These are a USNSI Station employee pin and a “man is the warmest place to hide” iron-on patch. Channel your inner Kurt Russell and get your hands on this now.

And this is just the first of many steelbook launches coming up over the weekend. We can’t reveal what the rest are just yet, but we can tease that they include a modern sci-fi classic, a Best Picture winner, an iconic monster movie, and two films from a beloved franchise.
