      1. US Blu-ray will be Region A locked.
      2. Will this contain the Bonus features Blu-ray?

      Cool but Braveheart is a Paramount Region A locked release and FOX is rest of the world. So I am wondering if FOX are releasing this outside the Americas.

      I wouldn't count on it. Fox currently remain very non-committal on catalogue releases unless there is a sequel/reboot to cash in on, and in Die Hard's case they are only now just starting to seize upon anniversary release opportunities. There's also the question of whether, if they were to do it, it would have the same a/v specs as the Paramount release.

      Great to know fox are prepping it, but for the few quid cheaper it'll cost £20 uk rrp vs the US price and the uncertain wait time, I'll still grab the paramount copy next month :D

      It will be, but honestly that rarely bothers me. Especially since this'll be going in the zavvi steelbook anyway :D

      Early review from TDB

      Braveheart was shot photochemically in 35mm using Panavision cameras and anamorphic lenses. It’s been scanned in full native 4K, graded for HDR10 and Dolby Vision, and the result is presented here on 4K Ultra HD at the correct 2.39:1 theatrical aspect ratio. The image is so gorgeous it brings a tear to the eye. Every tiny bit of the detail available in the original camera negative is apparent on screen, from subtle textures of dirt on faces and skin to wood, grass, straw, and stone. Detail is highly refined without being too edgy. The High Dynamic Range gives the gloomy overcast skies, flickering torch flames, and gleaming metal a bright but completely life-like intensity, and brings out extraordinary subtleties of color in the costumes and landscapes – seemingly every shade of green, brown, and blue-gray is there to dazzle the eye. Shadows are deep, nighttime scenes are dark but not so much that detail is lost. A light-moderate wash of grain remains to ensure a properly cinematic look. The whole image is just breathtaking. No matter how great a fan of this film you may be, you’ll see things here you’ve never noticed before. It’s a revelation.

      Looks like its a good un:thumbsup:

      Braveheart on a good day with the wind behind it (my fave movies change on a weekly basis) is my favourite movie of all time I’ve owned it on VHS, Laserdisc (US import uncut with gatefold sleeve), DVD, BD & now I’ve got the UHD PO’d this review has got me very excited, I can’t wait to check it out myself. I’m might cry watching it :rotfl:

      It'll be a long wait then. There's no US steel for it. There may be an EU one when fox eventually bring it out end of the year. Not worth waiting that long for imo, especially as it'll probably be the same steel that just came out with zavvi - boring.
