They will (albeit in their sporadically watered down Palisades Tartan guise).

Kino Lorber are apparently issuing some Tartan US titles on BD in the future too.

Yeah, I've ordered from Amazon UK, Zavvi and The Hut countless times and this is the longest it's ever taken so that's what makes me worry. Although we did have a severe winter storm impact our east coast pretty severely a few weeks ago which is most likely the cause of the delay. They are also using a new carrier called Asendia where previously they always used Royal Mail.

Visitor Q would be a very welcome addition. On another note, I emailed a suggestion to Arrow for Judgement Night (1993) which is with Universal so it could be a possibility for a dual territory release. I love the soundtrack to that film.
