Default American Gangster Blu Ray won't play

When I try to play American Gangster blu ray, it gets stuck on a "loading" screen and won't play. I have the Sony BDP-S300. Has anyone heard of that before? I've tried it with 2 copies, and neither plays.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

people seem to be having all kinds of problems lately with this player.
I have posted a thread in bd hardware for all of these type threads to reduce clutter.
sorry for your problem.
maybe you could repost this in that thread.

Odd. I wonder why. I just tried it again, and it worked no problem. So strange.

Ensure your firmware is up-to-date. Visit this website for further info:

I've updated my Sony BDP-S300 twice this week. Version 4.30 is the latest...

My Bluray of AMERICAN GANGSTER gets stuck at the LOADING screen, too. I have the Sony BDP-S500.

I just bought the disc last weekend because I realized I didnt yet own it, and went to play it an hour ago. It gets stuck!!!

So I did a GOOGLE SEARCH on "American Gangster Bluray Loading" - and it took me DIRECTLY in here, where I always go anyway and am already a memeber.

Is it a disc problem or player problem?

I think its a disc problem. I am playing it thru my PS3 and I've kept its firmware up to date. I've tried two copies thus far and both freeze up around the middle part of the film where it is showing Franks "businesses" collecting money.

I would simply get the HD DVD version but it doesn't have the extended cut in hd or HD audio!

I'm on my third copy from Amazon, I guess we'll keep trying...

I wonder if the new release of american gangster with the Public Enemies preview will be any better?
