The earth of 2150 AD is a desolate and hostile ruin of a planet, crumbling at the edge of civilisation, slowly disappearing into the darkness of space. For the future of planet earth now belongs The Daleks, a destructive army of alien invaders who have turned the human race into cowering slaves.

A man of mystery, a man of time and space, a man known only as... The Doctor.

'71
[ATTACH=CONFIG]4596[/ATTACH]
PURCHASE


Street Date: March 20, 2015

Studio: StudioCanal

Region: NA

Zavvi Description: Zavvi Exclusive Limited Edition Steelbook. Limited to 2000 Copies.

Extras: NA

Technical Info: NA

Synopsis: Jack O’Connell (Starred Up) is Gary Hook, a young British soldier accidentally abandoned by his unit following a riot on the streets of Belfast in 1971. Unable to tell friend from foe, and increasingly wary of his own comrades, the raw recruit must survive the night alone and find his way to safety through a disorientating, alien and deadly landscape.

Comments: As with most StudioCanal releases, roll the dice to guess if it is going to be region locked to B. Possibly same film as 71: Into The Fire by Cine-Asia ?

Monty Python's The Meaning of Life
[ATTACH=CONFIG]4600[/ATTACH]
PURCHASE


Street Date: February 16, 2015

Studio: Universal

Region: NA

Zavvi Description: Limited to 2500 Units.

Extras:
Hour long newly created HD featurette with Producer John Goldstone in conversation with the cast
Eric Idle Introduction
Feature Commentary from Terry Jones and Terry Gilham
The Snipped Bits: 7 Deleted Scenes
Singalong
The School of Life
Song and Dance
Songs Unsung
Selling The Meaning of Life
Fish: The School of Life
Soundtrack for the Lonely


Technical Info: Previous Release: DTS-HD MA 5.1, 50GB Disc, AR 1.81:1

Synopsis: It took God six days to create the heavens and the earth... and Monty Python 90 minutes to screw it up. John Cleese, Graham Chapman, Terry Jones, Eric Idle, Terry Gilliam and Michael Palin have returned to explain The Meaning of Life (again - this time on Blu-ray). The Python crew offer the usual tasteful sketches involving favourite bodily parts and functions, the wonders of war, the miracle of birth and a special preview of what's waiting for us in Heaven. Nothing is too sacred for the probing Pythons. After seeing them in action, you'll never look at life in quite the same way again!

Comments: Universal release - likely region-free (Thank You Uni!) - Last release is region-free.

Received How to Train Your Dragon - Updated page. Region-Free release (Thank You Fox/Dreamworks)

I still have not located this item anywhere but Zavvi. Amazon UK has it listed but is via a 3RD Party inflated price.

Comments: Universal Release has a very high probability of being region-free (thanks Uni) - Most recent release has a claim to be locked to region B, maybe it's a David Lynch thing (??) or maybe that source is wrong.
The UK Blu-ray of Wild at Heart is reviewed here:

http://bluray.highdefdigest.com/7526...theart_uk.html

The disc is Region B locked, has screwed-up audio, and is inferior to the domestic release from Twilight Time.
