Default Lucky Number Slevin is region free

I just received my copy of Lucky Number Slevin and can confirm that it is region free. It plays just fine on my Region A Playstation 3 even if the cover has the Region B symbol.

My guess is that most if not all releases from Entertainment in Video will be region free.

I ordered my copy from Sendit:

Other titles released by Entertainment in Video on Blu-ray are:

Gangs of New York
The Phantom of the Opera
Million Dollar Baby
Brokeback Mountain
The Departed
The Crow

I'll order some of these and keep you updated.

Sounds like it's the better Release than the US HD DVD.

Video:
HD DVD: MPEG4 - Blu-Ray: VC1

Sound:
HD DVD: DD+ - Blu-Ray: DTS HD MA

Does this one also include the Alternate Ending and Deleted Scenes? A 1:1 comparison of both would be great. Anyway, I already got the HD DVD Version, therefore this is a no buy for me.

I imported this from the UK to the US also. It does contain Alternate
Endings and Deleted Scenes, although the case doesn't say it does.
The case says only B, but it does play just fine on my Sony standalone.
I ordered from http://www.hmv.co.uk. About $35 if I remember
correctly.

You might, but this is the Blu-ray Software General Discussion area. It's more interesting to know that this title that previously has been labeled as region coded infact is region free. I have also provided specification information (VC-1 and DTS HD Master Audio) about the Blu-ray disc.

Shure and I appreciate those informations. In comparison to the hd dvd I also think that this is the better release. (As I've mentioned)
