    Anybody know a release date for City of God? I'm getting a little impatient.

    City of God finally has a street date in Region 1: December 16th. It's up for preorder at DVD Planet and Deep Discount DVD.

    No specs or artwork yet, but the SRP is $29.95.

    Here is a look at the Region 2 release, which streets next week in the UK. I would expect it to be identical to the R1 release.

    IT was announced a little while ago that in Brazil, they will see an extended version in form of a 4 part mini series. Wonder if any of that will make it's way our way?

    I guess I can wait another couple months.

    Maybe it's time for me to change my sig?

    Just watched this on Friday night. An awesome film with a beautiful anamorphic transfer and nice DTS audio. The subtitles were very well done as well. Not bad for $8.59 + shipping!

    City Of God NTSC Anamorphic DTS, Region 3

    Yes! Yes! Yes! Finally. It's about time. I've been waiting since March when I saw City of God twice back to back to own this on DVD.

    If it is true that Brazilians get a 4 part mini series, hopefully, it'll be released in Region 1.

    Decemeber 16th can't get here fast enough. Although I won't be able to watch it that day cause I'll be seeing all three LOTR movies on that day. [​IMG]

    Hey, whatever happened to that rerelease Miramax was talking about last January? You know, to boost oscar awareness?

    Either they gave up on getting the movie a BP nomination, which it deserves, and focus on Cold Mountain, or they're going to use the DVD release to push it. Who knows with Miramax.

    I saw an ad for a theatrical opening this Friday. Not a wide release, just a limited engagement.

    This DVD is supposed to be released in less than 1 month, and I have not heard an official announcement.

    Does anyone know anything about this release?

    Specs?

    Why is the best film of 2003 getting ignored?

    Marc,
    You'll probably be pissed but the DVD is now due Feb 17, 2004. [​IMG]

    IGN is saying it contains the following:

    Thanks for the info Nick.

    Normally I wouldn't go nuts over waiting an extra 2 months, but this film (as you stated) was released almost a year ago in US theatres.

    Seems like it's always my favorite films that keep getting delayed.

    Looks like it's identical to the R2 release then.

    The hour long documentary (News From A Personal War) is excellent, but has nothing to do with the film itself.

    Netflix shows this as a "Feb '04" release, but I wouldn't trust that info.
