My wife loves The Princess Bride and I know back in Feb it was supposed to be released on blu-ray but got postponed and is still not yet released in the USA. I was wondering if this movie was available from another counrty that region coding still works in a USA PS3. I know other movies such as The Island are available from France or UK and still work in a USA PS3. I would love to get this movie for my wife for x-mas if available at all.
This and Labyrinth are two of my most wanted "80s" movies on BD. Hopefully the wait will be worth it with respectable PQ/AQ. As many times as this title's been re-issued on standard DVD I'm really hoping they don't drop the ball to encourage many future double/trip/quadruple dips.
The is one movie with a really tortured release history. The new 20th anniversary DVD apparently has the best transfer of all the versions out there, but all of the extras and commentaries from last year's Dread Pirate Edition and even the old 2001 Special Edition release are gone.
I hope we see a ton more of foriegn films(loved OLDBOY) but I just can't imagine we would get alot for awhile. I don't think OLDBOY sold well considering I couldn't find it on any retail shelves anywhere and had to oder it online. From what I heard OLDBOY was a test film for other releases.
WIKI says "The Blu-Ray Edition of the film is expected to release October 15, 2008 for it's 15 year Aniversary. It will contain all the features of the Platinum Edition and more features. It will be available by itself or in a Limited Edition Boxset with Simba's Pride and Lion King 1 1/2."
