Do Lionsgate discs normally have trailers before the root menu?

    I’m trying to decide whether to buy all of the Saw films on Blu-Ray or iTunes. If Blu-Ray, I can either buy individually or in the Legacy box set. One thing I tire of with traditional Blu-Ray discs though, is the unskippable trailers that studios insist on putting on before you even get to the main root menu. Can anybody confirm if Lionsgate, or even these films specifically, are guilty of this?

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    Not sure about lionsgate off the top of my head, but I've never had trailers that couldn't be skipped on any disc. Just press next chapter to skip (must be done for every ad indivudually though).

    Lionsgate maybe one of the companies that are guilty of this. Certainly I've bought quite a few of their titles from Poundland and a lot of their discs have that problem. I'll check it out as soon as I can.

    I've just checked 3 discs and none of them had pre menu trailers. I think it's Signature or Entertainment In Video that do the unskipable spoilers.

    Thanks for all the replies guys! I know it probably seems a petty little thing to quibble over, but as I’m constantly trying to decide now whether to buy a film on iTunes or physical, trailers are a small negative that can help swing towards digital. If anybody can check any of the Saw films to be 100%, that would be even more amazing!

    Unskipable trailers are a pain. I understand.

    I’m even getting impatient with the normal, skippable trailers to be honest! iTunes has spoilt me for getting straight to the film, and easy convenience, but not as good quality as Blu-Ray yet. Seems there’s never a perfect option! As Saw is one of my favourite horror franchises, I’m taking my time in deciding what format to get it on in HD (already own the first seven on DVD).

    Same here. Some discs have so much rubbish before you get to the menu not just the trailers. To be fair the Lionsgate discs I looked at yesterday got to the menu pretty quickly. I had no complaints. I haven't seen any of the Saw films though.
