Or CD-Wow, which is where I'm getting it. Watched it again in the cinema last night, really only because the film I wanted to see wasn't showing. First Bond film I've ever bought, primarily because they made it more like The Bourne Identity (less gadgets, more realistic etc).

Yeah, I ordered the R3 from CD-WOW too. The problem with R3's is they quite often get pushed back at the last minute. Hopefully that won't be the case with Casino Royale though - would be nice getting it a month earlier than anywhere else!

Aye. Luckily the major releases tend to be pretty much identical to the R1 stuff, so progressive and decent packaging. That's always been the case with Sony and Warner stuff.

Yep, the Superman Returns 2-disc was identical and even came with a kind of "Introduction to the Superman comics" book.  Seems a bit odd that this stuff comes out in R3 earlier than R1 and R2.  The studios must know that a ton of this stuff is just going to get shipped to Europe and the US.  Not that I'm complaining of course!

If they don't release it sooner than other territories they'll get ripped off even more than they already do in Asia. Does kinda piss me off that Fox etc recently started selling new releases for the equivalent of around in China £2 though...

Anybody know what the extras are on this version?

Have you not been listening? It's practically the same as the Region 1. Just different distributor, that's all - ERA Entertainment from Hong Kong.

And Tom, I wouldn''t worry about this release getting pushed back at the last minute, because my DVD retailer in Sydney says he's getting some R3 editions this Saturday. So, you will get yours in time.

Looks like you're right, Nic Mall.

In the cd-wow website, it confirms that Region 3 has DTS. Damn!

I think I'll pass. I don't really like the Chinese writings on the back of the DVD, and the DVD menu.

The menus are usually in English. Don't think I've ever had a R3 DVD with chinese writing.

Yeah but DTS is the emperor's new clothes of marketing gimmicks. Loses out on some of the better extras as well.

It's quite a nice set. Can' see that anything has been added to that torture scene mind you, so it looks like the person who told me it was longer was talking b*****ks.

My retailer has told me that he's expecting his Hong Kong R3 shipment today, Saturday. He's also expecting some other R3 stuff like "Curse of The Golden Flower". I'll keep you guys posted if he gets the "Casiono Royale" DVD. I told him to call me if and when he gets it, Hopefully not too late in the afternoon. I'm celebrating Chinese New Year with my family tonight.

Do you guys in the UK get mail in the weekend? I know Australia doesn't. Customs are closed on the weekends.

Dunno, haven't really watched it. Saw it in the cinema last week so not that inclined to see it again so soon. Video looks okay though.

Why don't you just name the shop you get them from? Calling them "my retailer" sounds like you think we're going to think they're some big boss, with his secret shop that only "special" customers get to goto.

Why would you care? You're on the other side of the world, anyway. It's Top 10 Sound and Movies. He also sells records, Super Audio CD's, etc. I'm actually going to pick it up now. Woo-hoo! It has arrived at the store!

The DTS is really, really good!!! I've just spent last week new speaker wires that are nice and thick. You've got 4 different coloured wires instead of the usual two - Red, Green, Black and White. Now my Movie Theater at home sounds just as good as my local Cinema, and I'm very happy about that. Funny, that the menus are exactly the same, when I compare with the R1 update. Basically, the whole DVD's been copied off the R1 master! At the beginning, you get the U.S. trailers - Stranger Than Fiction, The Pursuit of Happyness and Spider-man 3! Interestingly, this DVD could double as Region 1, except for that cool DTS!  

Hey! According to www.dvdaficionado, the Region 1 is DTS??

Casino Royale - DTS (2006)
+ Becoming Bond (Documentary) (2006)
+ James Bond: for Real (Documentary) (2006)
+ Bond Girls Are Forever (Documentary) (2002)
+ Chris Cornell - You Know My Name (Music Video)

Release date: Mar-13-2007

I'll let you know if it is true. Damn. If that is correct, then I should not have bought the R3!
