    Hi,

    Does anyone know if the UK versions of these films will be re-submitted and released uncut.

    I would prefer to get the UK releases as in my opinion they have better artwork on the boxes and also appear to be more reasonably priced.

    It does not look that way my friend.
    As of this moment in time it would seem that batman returns and batman forever will be the cut versions in the uk boxset :(


    Art work for the region 1 discs can bee seen here......http://www.avforums.com/forums/showpost.php?p=1869877&postcount=1

    Does any site have the R1 version for preorder yet? Only play.com have any listings for them, and that's only R2 Single versions, no box set.

    I've just noticed that CD Wow will be selling the R3 version of this. Does anyone have any info on which is the best to get yet? This seems to be getting very close with very little information on a potentially huge-selling title. :confused:

    The Region 1/2/3/4 releases should all be the same (apart from the UK releases maybe cut) so I have gone for the Region 4 releases of Batman and Batman Returns as I dont want the last two.
    The price for the two Region 4 releases is less than £17 delivered which beats the £14.99 each that most places want for the UK releases lol

    I think I'll go for the R3 boxed set then. I'm a completist and think there are plenty of merits to Batman Forever that are too frequently overlooked. :)

    I actually ended up cancelling my orders for the R4 releases and bought the Region 3 Anthology Boxset, dont ask me why as I didnt think Forever was that good and have never seen B&R but I saw it on DVDfromKorea and thought why not :thumbsup:

    I've had the R1 on pre-order from Loaded247 as they had a good price, but it's not arrived yet. I queried this with Loaded247 and they said the Studio has had production issues, so they've delayed the release. I've noticed posts from people getting the R2 version, but not seen posts from any R1 owners. Does anyone know if what Loaded247 has told me is true?

    Not interested in the R2 version due to lack of commentry track on Batman Returns.

    Just noticed the review for the R1 Batman SE disc which was supplied by Movietyme. Checked the Movietyme site and the Anthology appears to be available for a slightly higher price.

    Has anyone received the R1 Anthology set from Movietyme?

    There is no Region 2 Anthology Boxset? unless you mean the Japanese Boxset. Personally I got the Korean R3 Boxset, cost just over £34 delivered and have had it for about 2 weeks now.

    Isn't there? must have got confused then. But there have been posts of people who received the R2 SE's. Not that it really matters to me as it's the R1 I've ordered.

    Does anyone know if the R1 boxset has been released? Just want to make sure Loaded247 aren't telling me fibs to keep my order.

    Just noticed that CrispyXUK appears to have received the R1 boxset from Movietyme. This is my 1st order order with Loaded247, so if Movietyme are indeed shipping the boxset, I will be most disappointed that Loaded247 have lied to me.

    I also have the region 1 batman anthology on order from loaded247. I pre-ordered with them and I'm still waiting for it to be delivered. I emailed them and their response was that the item is out of stock and on order.

    I wished I had ordered elsewhere now, as I have a friend who got his on the day of release 18/10 from a different supplier.

    The response I got from Loaded247 was

    The Region 1 Anthology Boxset is definitely available as Movietyme were shipping it the week before release and I have seen pics on another forum.

    I got mine last week from DVDImport. Somebody else posted on another forum about the delay on Loaded.

    I posted some photos on there too:

    Done a search with google and found that another excuse for Loaded247 not shipping the R1 boxset is due to the discs having been recalled due to missing commentry tracks. The only commentry track problem I've seen reported is with the R2 Batman Returns.

    Can those who've received the R1 boxset confirm that the commentry tracks are present on all the films.

    I was in HMV last week and noticed that there was a brand new boxing of each individual DVD’s original 4 films but noticed that the box set I saw looked to have the original DVD’s cases.

    Is the new anthology just repackaging the old 4:3 DVD’s or does it contain the new proper aspect ratio fils that were in the new individual cases. Also that new individual cases were twin DVD,s does the box sets contain the extra disc?

    The HMV anthology isn't the new releases (or at least the one I've seen in HMV) - just stick to getting the seperate titles or grabbing the R1/3/4 boxset, although there is a R2 Japan box as noted (and I'm hoping it's very nice too!)

    Well, after the guy on another forum asked me to check my set for the commentaries, I obliged and every one is present and correct. There is no track missing.

    So Loaded247 are telling a load of lies to people :rolleyes: If they are having supply problems I wish they would just admit it, certainly won't use these bunch of cowboys again.

    I do remember seeing a lot of Americans on the Superherohype boards saying they struggles to get the boxset in American shops, so it looks like they have struggled to get stock and have either lied, or got in a muddle over the R2 Batman Returns fiasco.
