    Where's the best place to order some of these USA exclusives like Sphere, Supergirl, Eraser, Running Man etc.

    Ordering one at a time and changing shipping country to a diiferent country and switching back seems to clear the 20% charge as posted by another forum member.

    The Running Man isn't USA exclusive - its been on Australian BD for ages which is region B of course. Might be out in other countries too come to that. A must for Captain Freedom alone!

    I think the Australian one is only 25GB and has a lower bit rate.
    I ended up getting the Canadian one which has the same transfer as the US one (50GB). There’s newer releases (which have poorer reviews) but you want the blue with green text US/Canadian release.

    Before you buy region A discs, are you sure your Blu-Ray player is Multi-Region with Blu-Rays, as most Multi-Region mods are just for the DVD side. (Most Multi-Region Blu-Ray require a hardware upgrade to get it to work)

    FYI depending on the title it won't be region locked anyway, Supergirl certainly won't be as its from Warner.
