Default The Pianist 11/10/09

I did a search and came up empty, so sorry if a thread exists.

Best Buy has a preorder up for The pianist dated for 11/10/09 and Amazon has nothing.

Another exclusive?

Also the 2005 Ellen Page movie Hard Candy () seems to be the same date and an exclusive as well.

Great films.

Because Calamari Marionette Ph.D sounded pompous, that's why.

Yep...French and UK. But over the past weeks we have seen a bunch on unannounced and "exclusive" releases. I hope these are true because I would love to have the Pianist.

They're showing this with a $39.98 list price, which is insane and doesn't make any sense. The sku number starts with 1, which means if it does come out, it's online only. I'll let everyone else pay $34.99 to own it.

There was a Canadian release back in April, but it apears to be yet another 1080i, DD, bare bones release; I know you're thinking Alliance, but this time the offender is Maple/TVA(?).

I'll wait for a proper US release.

Mr. White, you're thinking of The Piano. The Pianist is the film by Roman Polanski.

Unless you were joking, and it went over my head?

Once the exclusive expires, we will see good prices.

I dropped a question in The Digital Bits thread. Let's see what Jeff can tell us.

They had exclusives on Hot Fuzz and Shaun of the Dead and were selling both of those for $19.99.

Yep! Never seen The Pianist. Might have to see it sometime since Adrian Brody is a good actor and Roman Polanski is a good director.

I own this movie on DVD and it is one of my favorites. Would love to add it to my Blu-ray collection. I hate exclusive releases, but I might have to bite on this one.
My most anticipated release of 2018:

Zatoichi: Darkness Is His Ally Blu-ray

The Pianist, what a fantastic movie. One of the best (if not the best) films directed by Polanski. So moving and so sad at the same time. This would be a day 1 buy for me.

^Yeah look for them to be placed on "backorder" on the release day. It's what has happened with other "imports" on their site.

"Studio-unknown" should of gave it away.
