    I can't tell if they're genuine or not but there are promo copies of the following "Superbit" titles from a Russian seller on ebay:-

    Joan of Arc
    Leon Director's Cut
    League of Extraordinary Gentlemen
    Mummy Returns
    Pearl Harbor
    The Rock
    Ronin
    Seven
    Swordfish
    Tears of Sun
    Transporter
    Van Helsing Directors Cut
    Revolver
    Batman Begins
    Pirates of Caribbean
    Hitch
    Black Hawk Down
    Dracula 3 Legacy
    Kingdom of Heaven

    I'm not sure if the same studios distribute these titles in Russia as they do in the USA but I wasn't aware all these studios were releasing Superbit titles.

    One title that made me question these was Guy Ritchie's Revolver which they just sold for around $70, it's only been at cinemas here in the UK for a couple of months & doesn't open theatrically in the US until next year.

    Has anyone any idea if these titles are likely to be officially released in Superbit as there are a few I'd like?

    Superbit is a Sony trademark, so only Sony/Columbia/Tristar titles are released in Superbit in Region 1, although they do distribute films for other studios in other regions, so there are a few legitimate titles in other regions from other studios, but I don't know what all the movies are.

    ...although it would be awesome to have Luc Besson's Joan of Arc as SuperBit. And Kingdom of Heaven? Maybe it was released by Columbia/TriStar internationally, meaning the States will never get a SuperBit (it's 20th Century Fox, here).

    I agree, I think this is fake. And why? Dracula III: Legacy. 'nuff said. [​IMG]

    By the way, it looks like the (real) Region 1 Mad Max SuperBit might have been cancelled. My distributor put it on moratorium before street, which means it's either been indefinately postponed or cancelled. Confirmations, anyone?

    here's what he said to someone asking about it's authenticity of Revolver:-

    it does sound fantastic but it is true. this dvd is 100% legal and original. this one is a promotional release - i got it free from a friend in germany, got 4 dvds from him. but the regular release is anyways out already and being sold at 2 local biggest hifi store chains - hastings and soyuz!

    now I don't know what hastings or soyuz are but I searched the net to see if it's out in those stores if that's what they are but couldn't find anything.
