    It was released in R1 in Canda only. Apparently it became too popular in the US so it was pulled for whatever legal reason.

    There was a couple of threads on this during the time they were pulled. It was available for only 2 months before Warner pulled the plug.

    I heard that it wasn't a finished print and they weren't satisfied with it.

    The other explanation was legal issues with material included on the disc.

    I don't think we ever got the up-and-up?

    I have a copy purchased from a Canadian online retailer prior to their disappearing.

    I was able to purchase the Canadian release at the last minute. Hopefully, it will get released in the U.S. for those who still don't have it.
