    Does anyone know if there are to be any 'cuts' to the region 2 dvd in comparison to the region 1 version of Revenge of the Sith? (as there were with the Attack of the Clones dvd)

    Any info much appreciated
    Thanks

    As far as I know because of the higher cinema certification the film will remain uncut on DVD on region 2.

    4% PAL speed-up on R2, if that bothers you?!

    Don't really notice it myself

    Kinda pulled.. Warner decided to halt production mid way on the 2 Disc - maybe something to do with cost of the comic book or something.. not sure what. But they didnt tell Distributors so when first stocks arrived this Monday, Distributors were suprised to hear they would not be getting anymore. This set was never pre booked as a Limited Edition only Deluxe... hence many places now running or have run out.

    Thanks to a 000's phone calls Tuesday night, we have plenty in stock...

    dare I ask, would it be worth the savings of a pound to get the R3 instead of R1 ?

    That's a shame. Normally I order from Play, but given the reputation the Movietyme guys have here for despatching new releases early, I joined up and placed my order for ROTS.

    Hopefully next week means Monday.

    Doesnt usually stop them though, they were shipping the Star Wars Trilogy Boxset last year 2 or 3 weeks before release but I guess this time Fox want to make sure no one has a copy early and have taken steps.

    Won't the R2 look better than the R1? PAL vs NTSC? 576 vs 480? How did AOTC compare one region to the other PQ-wise?

    :) d

    Just saw this on HMV website if anyone is remotely interested.

    To celebrate the launch of Star Wars - Revenge of The Sith on DVD, actor Anthony Daniels (aka C-3PO) will be meeting fans and signing copies of the DVD at HMV, 150 Oxford Street on Monday, 31st October. The event will start at 12.00pm with a photo call and Anthony talking to fans about the film, followed by a signing session starting at 12.30pm.

    Please note that due to time constraints, we will only be able to allow 180 fans access to the queue to meet Anthony. Wristbands will be issued to fans on a first come first served basis from 9.00am on the day of the event. Only the Revenge Of The Sith DVDs will be signed, and there is a limit of only one item per person.

    Yeah! I had an email, yesterday, saying they had it in stock and were now shipping it.

    But their website says that they will ship as soon as they recieve stocks.
    I think they are doing a dirty on Fox and are sneakily shipping. :rolleyes:
