Default 'Almost Famous: The Extended Cut' Exclusive to Japan March 21?

According to bluray.com Japans getting a few exclusive releases in march.

Quote from bluray.com:

Retailers have updated their listings in Japan, and some surprising titles have made an appearance. On February 22nd, the Luc Besson films 'Unleashed' (HD DVD exclusive in the US) and 'Taxi 3' will be released, along with the already released Transporter films in a 2-pack. On March 5th, Sony Pictures will release 'Almost Famous: The Extended Cut' and on March 21st, 'Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind' (HD DVD exclusive in the US) will get released.

These titles have not be confirmed for any other country at this time, and may be regionally locked to Region A (same as the US). Being that 'Almost Famous' is a catalog film, it should not be regionally locked, and will most likely receive distribution in all regions this March. Keep an out for official confirmation soon.

Would love to have Almost Famous. Excellent film.

I would love to have

It's Columbia/DreamWorks movie. Not sure if Sony has the distributing rights for North-America. But you can import it from Japan.

Almost Famous is out on Bluray in the UK on Feb 11th.

Not sure if its Bootleg cut, but both versions on one disc would be nice.

Almost Famous (all versions) is distributed by Dreamworks in the U.S. so as we all know, it will be HD DVD exclusive here.

I sure hope this is coming to Japan. I want to get the Happy Feet import because it has PCM sound, but I'd like another title because shipping is so much. Almost Famous is a favorite homework movie of mine, for sure.

It also doesn't matter if any Japanese titles are region locked. US and Japan are in the same region for Blu-ray.

It's legit, Amazon.jp has it up already.

http://www.amazon.co.jp/%E3%81%82%E3...9342884&sr=8-1

Play-asia as well has it up for preorder.

Not to derail the thread, but since it's mentioned in the same article, Unleashed is also coming to Blu-ray courtesy of SPE over in Japan, except with its original title of Danny the Dog instead.

I read at Blu-ray.com that it was confirmed by paidgeek that the SPE released versions will have different transfers from whatever Universal would normally make.

I was just about to post that link. The Japanese title is "Special Editorial with Penny Lane That One Time"

Specs are not given on the page. It just says that special features include an interview with Lester Bangs himself and some backstage and rehearsal stuff.
