  1. Either way I hope to see it next Thursday, should have watch the last movie last night on TEN but I have the DVD so will watch it tonight.

    Actually I have the BluRay but still no BD player but it came with a digital copy so I’m set!

    Silly thing is it will cost me almost as much as a new DVD to see the movie when you add some snacks. A family outing to the cinemas must be a rare thing given the cost?

    Actually, it’s quite common now with blockbusters. With global releases occuring so closer together these days, the US is sometimes later as they are confined by tentpole dates etc. Many big films like Avengers, X-Men First Class, etc. are opening earlier than the US because they’re no longer bound by previous arrangement deals.
