It's probably not a Sony title, just distributed by them in the USA. We all know Sony distributes worldwide.

Dredd 3D


Street Date: August 10, 2015

Studio: EIV

Region: B

Zavvi Description: Zavvi Exclusive Limited Edition Steelbook - Limited to 2,500

Extras:
- Includes ZBOX Exclusive Limited Edition Numbered ZBOX Keychain.
- Includes 2D version.

Technical Info: Previously: DTS-HD MA 5.1, AR 2.40:1, 2x50GB Discs

Synopsis: The future America is an irradiated waste land. On its East Coast, running from Boston to Washington DC, lies Mega City One--a vast, violent metropolis where criminals rule the chaotic streets. The only force of order lies with the urban cops called “Judges” who possess the combined powers of judge, jury and instant executioner. Known and feared throughout the city, Dredd (Karl Urban, The Lord of the Rings, Star Trek) is the ultimate Judge, challenged with ridding the city of its latest scourge--a dangerous drug epidemic that has users of “Slo-Mo” experiencing reality at a fraction of its normal speed.

During a routine day on the job, Dredd is assigned to train and evaluate Cassandra Anderson (Olivia Thirlby, Juno), a rookie with powerful psychic abilities thanks to a genetic mutation. A heinous crime calls them to a neighbourhood where fellow Judges rarely dare to venture--a 200 story vertical slum controlled by prostitute turned drug lord Ma-Ma (Lena Headey, Game of Thrones, 300) and her ruthless clan. When they capture one of the clan’s inner circle, Ma-Ma overtakes the compound’s control centre and wages a dirty, vicious war against the Judges that proves she will stop at nothing to protect her empire. With the body count climbing and no way out, Dredd and Anderson must confront the odds and engage in the relentless battle for their survival.

Comments: As with pretty much every EIV release, will be region-B locked. Methinks EIV and Lionsgate are the same entity which would explain it. Zavvi is playing their Sold Out game, if you want this movie by itself good luck on this difficult (but not impossible) task. They will gladly sell you their Z-Box and this movie together, which will likely be in stock til release date. Zbox bundle Here

Street Date: July 13, 2015

Studio: Arrow

Region: B*

Zavvi Description: Zavvi Exclusive Steelbook - Limited to 2000 Units

Extras: NA

Technical Info: DTS-HD MA 5.1, NA, NA

Synopsis: Jerry (Ryan Reynolds) is an affable singleton who works on the factory floor at a bathtub factory, ever eager to get along with his co-workers, especially Fiona (Gemma Arterton) and Lisa (Anna Kendrick) from accounts. After work Jerry goes home to his pet cat, Mr. Whiskers, and loyal dog Bosco, where the three of them hang out, watch TV and discuss the day’s events. When one night he accidentally kills Fiona, Jerry hastily covers his tracks, under the strict advice of the subversive Mr. Whiskers. But Jerry is already beyond the reach of his well-meaning psychiatrist Dr. Warren (Jacki Weaver) and things are also looking bad for Lisa, who has taken a shine to Jerry. Despite Bosco trying to keep Jerry on the straight and narrow, Mr. Whiskers seems to be the loudest voice in Jerry’s head and soon events have spiraled and salvation is all Jerry can hope for.

Directed by the award-winning Marjane Satrapi (Persepolis), THE VOICES stars Ryan Reynolds (The Proposal, X Men Origins: Wolverine) as Jerry and the voices of Mr. Whiskers and Bosco. Anna Kendrick (Pitch Perfect, Into The Woods) and Gemma Arterton (Byzantium, The Duchess Of Malfi) also star alongside Jacki Weaver (The Silver Linings Playbook, Animal Kingdom).

Comments: Region Coding - Most likely will be region locked (Arrow Video)

Wolfcop


Street Date: September 28, 2015

Studio: StudioCanal

Region: B*

Zavvi Description: Zavvi Exclusive Gloss Finish Steelbook - Limited to Copies

Extras: NA

Technical Info: NA

Synopsis: Small town cop Lou Garou drinks too much, and when bad things happen he tends to look the other way.

One night, acting out of character, Lou follows up on a disturbance call in a remote area, but shortly after he arrives on the scene, he blacks out. When he wakes up, he can’t remember anything, his senses are heightened, and his hair is growing at a rapid rate. That night, Lou’s transformation from man into rage-fuelled werewolf takes shape.

During the day, Lou struggles to remain in control while working to uncover the mystery of who did this to him. The only question is will Lou be able to make things right before his inner monster takes control again?

Comments: Region-Coding - Highly likely it will be region B locked as is a StudioCanal release. Click top image to purchase.
