    I don't know where to post this question, so I'm putting it here in the movies section.

    Does anyone know the answer?

    Image Entertainment and other various industry publications publish notices from the studios that a title is going OOP

    When someone says so in an ebay auction description. [​IMG]
    More seriously, what Jeff said, or just cruise boards like these. Almost every title has enough fans that some discussion will be generated. If it's older, just search the forums.

    after a check on their site i found these recent releases are discontinued...
    1776
    20 million miles to earth
    3 worlds of gulliver
    ali
    all in the family . first season
    animal, the
    black hawk down
    bram stoker's dracula super bit version
    cheap detective
    crouching tiger, hiden dragon superbit
    day the world ended (august release)
    the search function is almost useless. i typed in ali and ali doesnt show up just 18 pages of titles with the letters ali in it.
    all in the family gets a zero from the search.
    so what i am trying to get at is that image, advanced search, discontinued...is useless because it has too many titles on it that are still in print but with a dif price.
    this is just to the start of the d's.
    there is 155 pages of disontinued titles, there is about 23 titles on each page.
    these titles i listed may be re-issued at a lower price. i don't know.
    it is hard to tell from that web site because it lists everything that has been discontinued even those that are re-issed lower price.
    those titles i listed are all released in the last year and some only 2 or 3 months ago.
    so it seems odd that they are oop already.

    that link to dvdreview seems to be a bit more accurrate because it doesnt list every one that just had a price change.

    Image is getting out of the distro business after the year turns, and is already de-listing titles from their database. So the Adv. Search feature is already useless for what you want. See the other thread on this subject here at HTF.

    As for alternate ways to find out if a title's OOP: :shrug:
