    Default After Shock (2010)

    Chinese movie After Shock looks very interesting. HK release from Mega Star September 17th. Apparently there will also be a Mainland China release from HEC September 20th.

    Seems very interesting. I guess it's this one in IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1393746/.

    Mandarin language Chinese movies released by HEC have usually been good and with English subs, so I'll try to get this from China when it gets listed by Amazon there. With Cantonese language movies they often have only Mandarin dubs and may lack English subs...

    It's now up at Amazon China and release date is September 9th. It seems to be a limited edition. They say Dolby Digital only, wonder if that is really correct. Very interested to hear more about the movie and the disc if you order it.

    Thanks for the link, I tried to search for it at Amazon China yesterday but didn't find it then. I just placed an order for it, looking forward to receiving it in about 7-10 days. I hope it does include lossless audio like HEC releases have usually had.

    My order didn't ship yet, and Amazon China seems to have changed the release date to 29th of September.
    The package looks pretty nice:

    Thanks for the update, I think it's September 29th though. Yeah, the China edition looks like a very nice digipak. They say BD50 so hopefully they'll include a lossless audio track.

    I got mine (the mainland China HEC release) today, it seems the eventual release date was 11th of October and that's when mine shipped also. The package is really nice, a kind of a bookcase with a textile surface. My disc has a sticker noting "Global Limited 603/728" so I guess this is some kind of a numbered limited edition with rather small amount of copies.

    This is region free and they've pretty much maxed out the disc size.

    There are Dolby TrueHD 5.1 and DD 5.1 original audio tracks so lossless audio is included alright.
    Optional English and two types of Chinese subs. The back cover has a story synopsis in English too.

    I'll add more info soon.

    Summary for drive G: (AnyDVD 6.7.1.0)
    HL-DT-ST BD-REGGW-H20N XL05 [serial no removed]
    Drive (Hardware) Region: 2

    Media is a Blu-Ray disc.

    I watched the movie last night and it was a very good human drama, the 1976 Tangshan earthquake and the immediate aftermath was just a smallish part in the movie and most of the time was spent on following the separate lives of the family members after the earthquake and how the earthquake had greatly affected their lives. There were many excellent performances by the main actors. PQ and AQ were really good too.

    The extras include a behind the scenes documentary (no English subs) and a poster showcase (no text needed) and 2 trailers.

    Thanks for the pics/info, it looks very nice and very limited with only 728 copies.
    I'll try to make my first order from Amazon China soon. I assume they will have a standard edition of this movie, once the limited edition is sold out.
