    I know but it means we could possibly see it coming to R1 Blu.

    Oh man am I glad I popped into this thread. I'm all over the UK discs if they turn out to be region-free.

    Wow, the blu-ray stills really do jump out at you. The night scenes look much better as well, a lot more detail to be seen. Impressive.

    ^ That's what I'm gathering. Same thing with the Aussie DVD, which has more features than the U.S. edition. I may have to get the UK BD for the extras and the R1 for the 3-D.

    Agreed. This review has me excited for the release. Those stills are a MAJOR improvement over previous releases.

    Yeah, those stills do look beautiful. Grainy, but natural looking, and with that same sense of depth that makes the format so nice. I can't wait for this, and Paramount tells me my screeners are already shipped out. :banana:

    I sure as shit hope the UK blu-rays are region-free. I've already pre-ordered them. I just couldn't wait lol. But Friday the 13th, Part 2 on blu? (Hell, it's better than Part 1!) It BETTER be region-free!!!

    I was thinking about getting the UK blu-rays, but then as I was reading about the original Batman series being announced for an R1 release right around when I was considering getting the UK discs, I decided that they'll get released eventually here, and will probably be cheaper in the long run for me so I'll wait. Those screens for Part 1 looked sweet though. I will have that on release day.

    Review #2 is up!

    And apparently it's region A. I guess because Warner owns the foreign distribution rights. I still doubt Parts 2 and 3 will be region-locked, as Paramount owns the rights to those internationally.

    I am going to set my LG 200 to Region B today so I'll check if F13 BD plays in it (I have it already).

    I hope this is region free as my order is in :eek1:

    Paramount haven't used region coding to my knowledge so far, Lets hope this won't start a trend.

    Ok, Panic over, Just noticed the reviewer has also reviewed other Paramount and Universal discs and stated them as region A.

    Fingers crossed.

    Confirmed as region free.

    That's awesome! Are you pre-ordering Parts 2 and 3 as well? If you are, can you check if those blu-rays are also region-free? :D
