    I pre-ordered it at AB Sound, but now their website states the release is cancelled (check here)!! [​IMG]
    Does this only apply to Canada, or is the American release cancelled/rescheduled too?

    I know this is an old post, but now that DUEL is coming out August 17th, 2004, is it just a US release? I noticed it wasn't available to order on amazon.ca. or futureshop.ca....etc.

    anyone know anything about a Canadian release?

    Mark, all I can do is wish you the best of luck. Universal has treated the DVD of Duel like SUCH an ugly stepchild, it isn't even funny.

    By the way, anyone having any luck getting this DVD in early? I WANT this puppy BEFORE Tuesday, if I can get it!

    Duel will be out on the 17th, according to the HMV "coming soon" poster.

    Some chains are treating it as a special order (A&B for example).
    A&B on-line specs

    Well that's strange because I work for a video wholesale company and we don't even have it in our computers and we supply to some pretty major video stores.

    Hi,

    just got the Canadian disc, so no problems with availability it seems. The packaging isn't even bilingual since the DVD doesn't contain a French track. There's an easily removable sticker with the Canadian rating on the slip cover.

    Interestingly enough the DVD itself is not a disc that's been lying around since the last recall because the files on it show the date of June 04, 2004!

    Chris
