    I think it's happened a couple times, but not often. Most often you see people getting their R1 imports in the UK 2-4 weeks early because they ship them direct from the factory to the UK.
    I know Battle Royal (Japanese film) came out on legit Hong Kong VCD a full month before the Japanese DVD

    Mainly TV series:
    Friends (Complete seasons), Buffy, Angel (ETA: end-2001, early-2002), The Prisonner (released last November),...
    or movies released by "local" distributors (as opposed to European branches of US studios): Citizen Kane, King Kong, Heavenly Creatures, Jackie Brown,The Magnificent Ambersons (2001/11/29), ...

    I believe The Cheap Detective was released in Region 3 before Region 1. I'm not sure if this DVD is already out in Region 1.
