Does anyone know?
I just searched Ebay and came up with a whole page full of possibilities.
It's out in the UK next month. No word yet on specs.
All those ebay ones are bootlegs. ANyone know when this is coming for real to R1?
Given that the film is still in theaters, I'd say 5-7 months from now is a pretty safe bet. Look for it in the September-October time frame, maybe sooner. -bf-
Apparently the R1 release date is August 5.
I take it you need english subs, otherwise I can only recommend the french SE or the dutch barebones (with DTS)
The Brit R2 is said to be uncut, if this of interest.
The UK disc is uncut and also Region 0. The disc is to feature: 'Making Of' documentary Alternative scenes Film notes Star and director filmographies 'Special Effects' featurette World Cinema trailer reel Original trailer Interactive menu Scene access Due 26 of this month in the UK. We have a great release in France already but there's no English subtitles (in fact there's not even subtitles for the French). If you appreciated the great Seul contre tous (French disc USA disc) you might like Irreversible too!
Nicholas, do you have a website that confirms that the UK edition will be R0? Per amazon.co.uk , the UK edition is R2 and PAL (although Amazon is not the most reliable source for prerelease info). Jussi, Where have you been able to find info (and additional, if possible) on the R1 release?
As I understand it, the R2 release will be R0, and also it's sound will be in Dolby Digital 2.0. (I could have sworn the theatrical release format was multichannel. I saw a Dolby Digital trailer before the film started.) from the play.com pages. * 'Making Of' documentary * Alternative scenes * Film notes * Star and director filmographies * 'Special Effects' featurette * World Cinema trailer reel * Original trailer * Interactive menu * Scene access * Region 0 and Screen Widescreen 2.35:1 Anamorphic Languages French - Dolby Digital (2.0) Stereo I'll wait and see. Tartan UK haven't published a good disc on their own.. ever. (Their second release of In the Mood for Love was a duplicate of the R2 French disc in content and features)
the tartan UKR2 will be R0 as every other Tartan release in the UK. Dont' ask why they put their DVDs as R0 but they do. The film itself surely is multichannel as the french and dutch DVDs are all 5.1. but Tartan have only once given us 5.1 and that was with Battle Royale.
As mentioned above -Tartan release all their DVDs as Region 0. I'm sure they will do a very good job of this disc too -their discs in the past few months have been impressive -that's more to do with the people supplying them the excellent transfers than Tartan doing the work themselves, alas. www.tartanvideo.com www.tartanvideo.com/shwin.asp
Tartan's website says all their DVDs are Region 0 and PAL. Unclear on the PAL option, will that play on standard Region 1 DVD players or not? Sorry for the dumb question
You'll need a DVD player that can convert the PAL signal to NTSC or a PAL DVD player and a PAL TV. I'm sure your PC would play any disc. You'll find lots of info on video standards if you search in the Regional Forum (what a terrible name!) All my Tartan discs (more than 10) are Region 0.
I was under the impression that most DVD players (even in the U.S.) could do PAL-to-NTSC -- doing it correctly was the problem. Is there a master list somewhere of players that can and can't do it?
well i'll have to wait for a r1 release.. but i'm curious now as to what the added scenes might be? if the uk release is uncut.... what was added?
I don't think Noé would want anyone releasing a cut or changed version of his films -the additional/extended scenes will be available from the menu only and not part of the film. I'd be very surprised to see different.
