Warners delays 4K Mad Max titles and Middle-earth Ultimate Collector’s Edition

Another casualty of the current the of the globe, Warner Bros has delayed its revisiting of both the Mad Max and Lord of the Rings universes.

Breaking chain

Last year’s cavalcade of nightmares hasn’t exactly ended just yet. In some very important ways things are much better, and that’s a very good thing. But while that’s true, some of the aftereffects of the pandemic have proved to be a continuing headache.

That includes a term that you’ve no doubt heard a dozen times of more by now. I’m talking about ‘supply chain disruptions’. Something that’s affected almost everything at this point, the worldwide supply chain is still very much in disarray.

Cargo ships are piling up at US ports, and getting product to store shelves has been a challenge. The latest victims of that are a few eagerly anticipated products from Warner Bros.

We told you recently about the Middle-earth Ultimate Collector’s Edition, and the new Mad Max 4K editions. And while the delay isn’t all that long, all of those products will be a little longer in getting to retail.

So how much of a delay are we talking about? Well, about two weeks worth. The Mad Max films were set to arrive on November 2nd, but will hit on the 16th instead. The same goes for that big Middle-earth box set.

If you were targeting these for yourself, yeah that’s a little bit of a drag. But if you were picking them up for Christmas gifts, well then it’s really just a little longer to save up for ’em.

In the meantime too, you can always read a little more about both new launches. Our coverage of Mad Max is right here, and Middle-earth is right here.
