As above.

I haven't seen this film yet but I am itching to.

Before I by the DVD, is there any news on a HD release?

Thanks Jim.

I've not seen anything on a US release though and with it being Fox, I guess it will be region coded.

Don't worry the DVD hasn't even been announced in the US yet either.

Yeah, it was only released in the cinema in the US over the summer so I think it will be nearer Christmas for a US DVD/Blu-ray release is available.

SendIt are usually pretty good and hopefully this price for the UK release wll come down to the usual £17 price they have :)

Well just pre-ordered Sunshine on Blu-ray from Asda online for £17.97 delivered (also 28 weeks later same price as well). This is about the cheapest I've seen so far for either film. Would do the normal and pre-order off of Movietyme but since we're talking a Fox film it'll be the usual region locking and won't work in my player.

Play and Amazon are showing this as the 29th Oct now, a week later.

Still no news of the US BD yet.

I wouldn't be in so much of a hurry to watch we I thought it was absolutely appalling:eek: but thats my opinion.

Sure it would look good in hidef though:)

Almost enough to make me want to buy a PS3. Even in upscaled SD it looks stunning. The film itself was so close to being a classic, only let down by the last 30-40 minutes which were a bit disjointed.

I'm looking at getting this on Blu-ray from either Asda or The Hut. However my PS3 is a USA version - what are the chances of the UK release being region locked?

I heard that there was a Japanese release of this in September but I can't track it down anywhere - if I could get hold of one of these this would be ideal.

Can anyone point me to an on-line Japanese retailer who sells to the UK with this title in stock?

I've glanced at amazon.co.jp and yesasia, and neither seem to have this listed, let alone in stock. I did order the UK BD in the hope that it'd work on my US PS3, but I know it won't (****ing Fox!) so I've cancelled that.

Apparently the US BD of 28 Days Later has a specific BD trailer for Sunshine, so there's hope for a Region A release yet...

Mystery solved on the Japanese release - its slipped to the 21st December 07.

So no region A available at the moment - I might be tempted to watch it on Sky Box Office HD later this month (Starts 26/10) and then buy a Region A version sometime next year after its been released and the price has reduced.

I think this is the first time I have been really let down by region coding. I have a Jap PS3 and although Gangs of New York and Crow were Region B locked, the lack of positive reviews meant I wasnt too bothered, I would like to think that Fox have given this a good effort as I realy enjoyed the film.

Will keep my eye on a US release or cough up for the Jap one :(

I've just been moaning elsewhee that it's £22/£23 at Amazon UK & Sendit.

This is more like it!

Are Asda in-store prices the same, or more expensive?

Just enter 'Oct10' in the discount box! :thumbsup:

Commentary with Dr Brian Cox (Uni of Manchester) <- should be good, I've read interviews with him before where he talks about the actual science behind the story

Can't wait to watch it now! :D
