Step 1: Live outside the US!

Step 2: Order your DVD from a great place like Movietyme.com

Step 3: Enjoyeeeee! :)

The reason for this is that retailers in their native country have to sign an agreement that stock released on a certain day is released on that day - and NOT BEFORE! Even though they get the stock in a few days (sometimes a week) before the actual date...

The reason for this is so the release coincides with the marketing campaign/charts/reviews etc... and doesn't miss them. A retailer caught dishing out goods before the agreed release date will be, to put it politely, utterly butt-fucked by the distributor.

For orders outside of the US these rules don't apply (or if they do, then some places don't abide by them -- there is no marketing campaign etc for it to coinicide with you see! so no-one is really losing out...)

And there you have it.

Sorry you people in the US, but it isn't long now! Only a few more days!!
