    Mirimax is releasing the widescreen CITY OF GOD DVD in the UK on Sept. 22, but no announcement about this incredibly powerful film for Stateside issue. What's up with that, Disney?

    I believe it was mentioned in another thread that City of God will be getting a theatrical re-release to try and help it's Oscar chances.

    It's eligable for Best Picture, and IMO it deserves a nomination at the very least - and I don't think a better film will be out this year.

    As you can tell from my signature, I'm anxious for this DVD also.

    It's not unusual for films to be released first to DVD in regions other than region 1. Note that the theatrical release was earlier in the U.K. than in the U.S.

    It has also been released in Hong Kong for HK$60. Bare bones I would imagine, but it does have DTS audio.

    Just pre ordered the R2, have heard nothing but good about this film.

    It seems R2 has been getting the odd release first here and there and also occasionally additional extras, this would have been unheard of two years ago. Deer Hunter SE has been out a while on R2.
