    I'm sure it's the 2002 version with Naomi Watts. I don't think Best Buy would have much interest in making the Japanese version an exclusive. Also, if you look at the studio, it lists Paramount--and Paramount now distributes the back catalog of DreamWorks.

    If that's the case I can wait until a wide release.

    I'm fairly confident that it is the American version. I've read that the Ringu trilogy is rumoured to be coming out in Japan this year as well on Blu, hopefully region free.

    It's not a rumor anymore, all 4 japanese 'Ring' movies will get a Blu-ray release in Japan on 28th April, just in time for the new movie 'Sadako 3D'.

    This is really the only J-horror American remake that I enjoyed - Ill probably pick this one up if they do a good job on the picture and audio quality.

    Region A locked, Why the fuck would Paramount do this, They own it Worldwide don't they?

    Why lock a 10 year old Movie....Ah shit.....Good job I'm region free but it will piss off quite a few peeps :confused:

    This is already out. It's got a cool lenticular cover but I still prefer the Japanese version.

    It's out in stores already then? I'll have to check the local store.

    If it has a Slip Cover though, I'm not doing a store pick-up again. The last time the idiots put thick tape all over it which ripped it up when removed. :mad:

    Oh well, they are offering free shipping from the website at least.

    I picked it up at my local Best Buy last night. The picture quality is amazing, and the all of the extras from the Walmart exclusive Rings DVD have been ported over....in HD. The entire "video" is still an easter egg complete with the ringing of a phone afterward. You can find it by going into "Extras", highlight "Don't Watch This", and hit left (nothing will be highlighted), than enter. Enjoy. :)

    I hope my local Best Buy put this out early as well. Will pick it up today if they do. One of the few remakes that I enjoy watching.

    I'm wondering if Canadian Best Buys will be getting this. I see it's on the US website, but not the CDN.

    Remember seeing this one in the theater after seeing the original a year or two earlier.
    What was scary and creepy as hell in the original was kinda toned down in the remake.
    Plus, as usual, they have to over explain everything in Hollywood, making it even LESS scary. It´s okay, but I much rather have the original on BD.

    Btw, I actually found Rachel´s psychokid of a son to be FAR more creepy than the ghost ;)

    I'm all over this. Blu-ray.com gave it a stellar review, and they're usually pretty accurate.
