Synopsis: Who is the man who hides his scarred face behind a mask? Hero or madman? Liberator or oppressor? Who is V – and who will join him in his daring plot to destroy the totalitarian regime that dominates his nation? From the creators of The Matrix Trilogy comes V For Vendetta,an arresting and uncompromising vision of the future based on the powerfully subversive graphic novel. Natalie Portman stars as Evey, a working-class girl who must determine if her hero has become the very menace heʼs fighting against. Hugo Weaving plays V – a bold, charismatic freedom fighter driven to exact revenge on those who disfigured him. And Stephen Rea portrays the detective leading a desperate quest to capture V before he ignites a revolution. The stakes rise. The tension electrifies. The action explodes. Whose side are you on? In Vʼs world, there is no middle ground.

Comments: As this title has been released multiple times in the past, all of which have been region-free, it is pretty much a guarantee it will be the exact disc already in circulation.

Street Date: January 16, 2017

Studio: StudioCanal

Region: B (locked)

Zavvi Description: Zavvi Exclusive Limited Edition Steelbook Blu-ray (2000 Copies)

Extras: NA

Technical Info: UNKNOWN but likely: DTS-HD MA 2.0 mono, DTS-HD MA 5.1, AR 1.85:1, 1 BD-50 Disc

Synopsis: Released in 1966, Hammer classic, ONE MILLION YEARS B.C is the spectacular prehistoric adventure of tumak, a caveman and the son of the leader of the rock tribe.

Technical Info: English + Spanish LPCM 5.1, AR 1.85:1, 1 BD-50 disc

Synopsis: Born in the flames of hell and brought to Earth as an infant to perpetrate evil, Hellboy was rescued from sinister forces by the benevolent Dr. Broom, who raised him to be a hero. In Dr. Broom's secret Bureau of Paranormal Research and Defense, Hellboy creates an unlikely family consisting of the telepathic "Mer-Man" Abe Sapien and Liz Sherman, the woman he loves who can control fire. Hidden from the very society that they protect, they stand as the key line of defense against an evil madman who seeks to reclaim Hellboy to the dark side and use his powers to destroy mankind.

Amazon.de is also offering a version of this December 5th and apparently at a lower price;
