    Please excuse me as I'm a bit of a R1 virgin! ;)

    How come this film is available now, when it hasn't even hit the UK cinemas? Does this often happen with R1 titles?

    BTW: anybody seen the film on R1 DVD? Any good?

    This happens from time to time - I remember getting Stir of Echoes on DVD R1 months before it even made the cinemas over here.

    I've ordered this movie up, but it hasn't arrived yet (just order it yesterday via Play247).

    That's the whole point of regional coding (from the studio's/distributers point of view). They can stagger cinema and DVD releases. such that you can't get hold of the DVD before the cinema release.

    Of course the lack of effectiveness of regional encoding bypasses this, leading frequently to this scenario.
