I was never interested in getting a 4k Player but this might sell the deal.

Noob question; I know 4k players and 4k discs are region free. However, are 4k players region free in playing regular Blu Rays, like region B discs?

The bonus disc is region B and I want to make sure I can play it.

Nope. You'd still need a region free BD player for that.

Which would still require a region free player.

Re: George A. Romero's DAWN OF THE DEAD -- 4K UHD (Theatrical, Cannes, Argento cuts) coming from Second S

It's gonna be a great release, and it looks to bring over most of the major features but just for the record it's not quite definitive (I'm not complaining BTW, just making notes). Here's what it looks like it's missing
  • Monroeville Mall commercial, Monroeville Mall tour and a bunch of galleries from the Ultimate Edition DVD. Also, not sure if the Super 8 mall footage is the same as the on-set home movies
  • Fan of the Dead and Tom Savini's Scream Greats from the Arrow set
  • In Conversation with George Romero at MIFF from the AU BD
  • Basically all of the stuff from the Italian Zombi 4K set
Also I'm not sure which cut of Document of the Dead is The New Cut, the 1989 video version or the 2012 Definitive version, or maybe another new version?

It's from Second Sight. The Blu-ray edition will also be Region B. This is still a foreign release.

Hmmm amazon.co.uk isn’t shipping to the US. Hopefully Diabolik gets this otherwise I’ll be paying three times the price on eBay.

Diabolikposted this on their facebook page yesterday
Is there really a need to ask if we are going to carry Dawn of the Dead? We are already working on trying to coordinate a preorder, but it will likely be a few weeks before it is all sorted.

Amazon says it is shipping to the US, but the shipping starts at about 10 pounds.

Sucks on cost, but that’s good news. I’ll probably bite the bullet and get it on amazon. I can’t risk waiting a few weeks. This thing is gonna sell out for sure.

I did sort of a temp order to get a bead on shipping. It seems like 10 pounds for one item, 15 for two, but three didn't cost much more than two.

? Did they stop again? Because just yesterday I got the dispatch notice for an order I placed about ten days earlier.

I'm looking forward to this set, but dreading the cost of it + shipping.

nope that was my fault. I tried to place an order a while back when they werenít. When the news of this preorder dropped I saw everyone bitching on Twitter. I shouldnít have assumed and checked for myself.

Pre-order direct from http://secondsightfilms.co.uk (UK shipping only) Tuesday May 26th Midday. Will also be available from all other online retailers shortly after

Should be up for PO on Amazon by Thursday- or next weekend at the latest by that tweet.

I'm going to wait and hope to get in on a pre-order when DiabolikDVD has theirs up.

I don't mind paying a little more to purchase from them due to how well they pack their items.

I’ve never had a problem with damaged sets from Amazon. Hell, even Flight of the Navigator from UK, didn’t have padding just sealed in a plastic envelope. No dents or bruises. And I’ve gotten many bigger sets...

Anything else interesting to order from Second Sight if getting Dawn of the Dead from them?
