They Live (UK) -- 9/5/11

Decided to see if it was coming out and found the page at amazon saying it'd come out this Tuesday but was discontinued. Any news on why or if it's coming out again?

I remember reading somewhere that they were having issues with the frame rate and audio synching. I know it's being rescheduled but I don't know to when.

Here's hoping Universal releases a US Mama Don't Like Tattletales Edition.

I'd rather see a "Put on the God Damned Glasses" Edition, complete with your own pair of glasses...

I have just started chewing some bubblegum in celebration. God help my co-workers when I run out.

The recalled previous disc was Region B, so this will almost certainly be the same. Region-free players are pretty cheap now though - Best Buy's Insignia player is around 90 bucks and can be made region-free with a remote hack, although apparently the new firmware disables region switching.

My Amazon UK pre-order was cancelled - looks like this is off again. Why am I somehow not surprised?

Yeah I got that notice too a couple of days ago. As much as I love this film I can't see spending $40 US for the Italian BD.

I could....

What's the scoop on the Italian BD? Region, specs, etc.

I noticed that the RB Italian disc is only 9,99 Euros from Amazon.it, but shipping is 14 euros, so the grand total would be around $28. I've seen the disc and was quite pleased with it. Here's DVD Beaver's review.

Re: They Live (UK) -- 9/5/11

I finally broke down and ordered it. If I saw it in a store for $28 I wouldn't hesitate so no reason to not order for $28 shipped.

Of course me doing this will spur the UK or a domestic release out of limbo so you're all welcome in advance.

A friend of mine purchased one too, so my second copy was only around 12 bucks.
