    Hi G,

    It should be due out in a small amount of UK cinemas later this year! Don't expect to see a UK DVD release, however, until very early next year, unless we don't get a cinema release at all, in which case "Steamboy" will come direct to DVD towards the end of 2005!

    Cheers Pooch, was hoping I would be able to see it in one of the local multiplex but more than likely it will be an independent cinima that picks it up.

    I'm really ****** off that since I moved to the UK, nothing ever gets released over here, or not properly ><;

    In France we get all these great anime movies just afew months after the original JP release!!! Take Howl no ugoku shiro, it was released in France in January, and steamboy back in November...

    I suspect the R2UK DVD to be the same as the R2 French DVD which is due to release next month... or is already released, I forgot, but without any english I suspect.

    Cd-wow are a great company to buy from, their customer service is really good too.

    Razor, please let us know what you think of the film, when you've watched it.

    Watched the DVD but for some reason when I select English DTS it only shows up as DD on the control screen on my system, and it starts off with the DD intro instead of a DTS intro.
    Anyone else ?

    I got the same, I thought it was because I was using my pc and one of settings weren't correct. I will try it out on my dvd player to see if I get the same. :rolleyes:

    Did not notice any dts problems, apart from being bloody loud.

    Sorry i wanted to like the film, but i was left bored. 10 years in the making, and most expensive :( :(

    Not a patch on appleseed. Sorry. And where was the superbit picture?, maybe it was for sound only. The PQ was nothing special. At times murky and noisy, fitting for the victorian era maybe.

    Although I havent watched it yet, I skimmed though it looking a picture quality and I have to agree it was nothing special.

    I got the dts intro 'the dvd cd image' and all the dts sound fx, 'this theatre features dts' intro all in dts

    It then went to dd for the copyright text stuff for a few secs, and then back to dts when the film started.

    The DTS on mine is fine, I've not had chance to watch it yet though.

    Did anybody like the film?
