It says region 2 on the Amazon site, but aren't Blu-ray's distinguished by letters not numbers?
No, they should work. Paramount never region codes their blu-rays. (Neither do Universal or Warner).
I'm pretty sure Poltergeist is region coded though.
Nope. It's region-free. (If it's a North American release that has like a million subtitle options (like Poltergeist does) it's a pretty tell-tale sign that it's region-free)
Amazon is quite confusing then.
Never trust amazon for shit like that. Sure the discs are meant for Region 'A', but that doesn't necessarily mean they're region coded for Region 'A'.
According to Blu-ray.com, Friday 2&3 are region B.
It's definitely Region-free coded. I just bought it the other night, and it looks damn amazing in hi-def. I though the recent DVD looked really nice, but this just blows me away.
Makes me wish I had a Blu-ray player.
That's only because they aren't completely certain that it's going to be region-free. When it's released, its region status will change.
I can't wait to see the movie FINALLY Uncut and looking all great in Hi-Def.
Nice to know there's still hope. Hopefully those discs get reviewed.
I'd say right now there's about a 99.9% chance these'll be region-free. (Hell, I'd even say 100%) Paramount doesn't code their discs, and I don't see why Friday the 13th parts 2 and 3 should break the trend. Paramount owns them outright everywhere in the world. No reason to code them.
When you put it that way it makes sense. If they do own rights all over the world then region coding would be stupid.
Is the part 3 import blu-ray in 3D? I see no mention on that cover art...
Why the hell wouldn't they release these in the US? I remember when they first released the Fridays onto DVD they did two per year.
I enjoy the first couple but to me Jason doesn't really become Jason until Part 3 and above; those are really the ones I want.
I'd love to know that also. I can't find anything else about it on the net. Something tells me it won't be in 3D though.
Well Dread Central did post this article a while back: http://www.dreadcentral.com/story/exclusive-friday-13th-3-d-blu-ray
I've seen that before, but it mentions nothing about the R2 blu-ray release.
