Gangs of New York
[ATTACH=CONFIG]4637[/ATTACH]
PURCHASE


Street Date: May 18, 2015

Studio: Entertainment in Video

Region: NA

Zavvi Description: Zavvi Exclusive Limited Edition Steelbook. Limited to 2500 Copies.

Extras: NA

Technical Info: NA

Synopsis: Martin Scorsese's Gangs Of New York introduces today's world to the Five Points, a dark corner of the city known to New Yorkers of long ago as the centre of vice and chaos.
Into this frontier of extreme lawlessness arrives the young Amsterdam Vallon (Leonardo DiCaprio).
Amsterdam is the orphaned son of the slain Priest Vallon (Liam Neeson) - once chief warrior of the Dead Rabbits gang that rallied the Irish immigrants of the Five Points. Amsterdam has returned to the Five Points to hunt down his father's killer. His target is William Cutting AKA "Bill the Butcher" (Daniel Day-Lewis), who has since become the merciless new leader of the neighbourhood, a Nativist who detests the newly arrived immigrants and is determined to fend off all so-called "foreign invaders". Amsterdam works his way deep into the Butcher's inner circle, a world of alternating honour and cruelty from which he can only hope to escape.

Comments: Previous Release of this one is region B locked, which is likely as it is a Miramax Release (assholes) - Audio likely to be lossy as well (Miramax-assholes)

Purchase this with The Departed and pay £30

Leonardo DiCaprio die recently? Just not sure what the double-dips are all about.

Gangs of New York looks alright, but I like my Canadian Alliance version a bit better.

Default The Crow

The Crow

PURCHASE


Street Date: May 18, 2015

Studio: EIV

Region: N/A, Likely B (See Comments)

Zavvi Description: Zavvi Exclusive Limited Edition Steelbook. Ultra Limited Print Run. Limited to 2500 Copies. Includes Gloss Finish.

Extras:

Technical Info: If a re-release:

Codec: MPEG-2
Resolution: 1080/50i
Aspect ratio: 1.85:1
Original aspect ratio: 1.85:1
English: DTS 5.1
Subtitles: English SDH

50GB Blu-ray Disc
Single disc (1 BD)

Synopsis: Eric Draven (Brandon Lee) is killed with his fiancée on Devil's Night by a gang of dope-dealing thugs. A year after his death Draven is resurrected to wreak revenge on his killers in an awesomely athletic fashion. Star Brandon Lee was killed during the shooting of the film, which was completed using body doubles and state-of-the-art special effects.

Comments: Almost certainly region locked. The Previous UK release by the same Studio was B locked. A user on Blu-ray.com reported that the Extras were based on SD (576p) DVD extras. So unless this is a remaster instead of a re-release this disk likely won't be much of an upgrade to those that have the DVD, and only an upgrade in case to those that own the Deluxe Edition from the UK.

Into the Woods
[ATTACH=CONFIG]4738[/ATTACH]
PURCHASE


Street Date: May 18, 2015

Studio: Disney

Region: NA

Zavvi Description: Zavvi Exclusive Limited Edition Steelbook.

Extras: NA

Technical Info: NA - Disney usually provides the best Audio and Video options. Likely will be DTS-HD MA 7.1, OAR, 50GB Disc

Synopsis: Disney's Into the Woods is based on the Tony®-winning original musical by James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim. It is a modern day twist on the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales, intertwining the plots of a few choice stories. This humorous and heartfelt musical follows the classic tales of Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and The Beanstalk and Rapunzel - all tied together by an original story. It surrounds a baker and his wife's quest to break a witch's curse in order to start a family. Along the way, they encounter several well-known fairy tale characters and together they learn what happens after 'happily ever after'.

Comments: Likely Region-Free (Thanks Disney). Will likely sell out as quickly as Maleficent did. Artwork finalized.

^^^ Already ordered one. Have seen mixed reviews but if it's like your typical Disney produced musical it'll be awesome.

Sharon Stone is Catherine Tramell, a Stunning, enigmatic novelist with a talent for seduction and a History of relationships that end in death. As The only suspect in a controversial murder case that the detective is investigating, Catherine ignites Nick's suspicion and his passion, and he soon becomes involved in his most dangerous liaison yet. The chemistry between Douglas and Stone set the screen alight as the body count mounts and the stakes grown higher.

Comments: According to Blu-ray.com this release is a different studio from the Previous UK Release which was done by Optimum Home Entertainment (which locked it to B and A, leaving out C apparently). Studio Canal locks about 1/3rd of their releases according to These Statistics so the odds aren't too bad that it'll be region free.
