Imagine the shock if one had ordered the old version and received the new version instead The remake was quite a disaster... Still quite curious about how the old one will look in HD though.

Anyone know if it's going region free? Too early?

way, WAY too early. no one will have it in hand for quite some time to test it, and most online preorder listings are wrong on region coding, just assumptions.

Most Optimum titles are locked to Region B so it is a pretty good bet that this will be too.

Rumour has it that Optimum wanted more time on the restoration process. Be even better if they found Roger Corman's missing 35mm reel of the footage that is on the extended version though.

...... and of course it's quite likely that this film on blu-ray will never see the light of day! Play.com still has this listed as "coming soon"!
Here we are in January 2011 and any and all NEW news items have now dried up.
Play.com have made mistakes in the past with putting place holders on their websites for films which are just rumoured to be released, but never materialise. Other news sources see this from Play.com and think there must be some truth in it and sometimes take it as gospel.

Hence why you often see, "rubbish" type snippets of news on certain websites. These are only really repeating news of the rumours that Play.com and places like it, started in the first place.

Don't get me wrong, I'll be one of the first in the queue to order this if it ever gets released, but the way things are right now, I am beginning to wonder.

Even the new film "The Wicker Tree" has suffered delays and setbacks, with no definite release date. The latest is that it will be Spring 2011, but I expect that date will change once we get there (Oh ye of little faith haha)! It's all part of the mystery that is .... The Wicker Man!
