Region B Indicator Titles

#1 Post by MichaelB » Thu Jun 07, 2018 6:20 am

Although the vast majority of Indicator releases are region-free (and with both feature and extras encoded specifically so that they'll play on any player worldwide), a small handful of titles has unfortunately been locked to Region B as a contractual requirement stipulated by the rightsholder.

This is the current list of Region B-locked titles (up to and including September 2019 releases):

Bellman & True
Blonde Venus
Blue Collar
The Border
Charley Varrick
Charlie Bubbles
The Devil is a Woman
Dishonored
Dragonwyck
The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds
The Last Movie
Little Murders
The Lonely Passion of Judith Hearne
Ministry of Fear
Missing
The Missionary
Morocco
The St. Valentine's Day Massacre
The Scarlet Empress
Shanghai Express
The Snake Pit
Strait-Jacket
The Third Secret
Track 29
The Triple Echo

Can we assume that basically all Universal and Fox titles will be Region B locked ?

So far, every licensor that Powerhouse has dealt with who isn't Sony has required region-locking as a contractual condition.

They were up to January this year, but ever since they started licensing titles from rightsholders other than Sony region-locking has been compulsory for virtually all non-Sony acquisitions.

But Sony titles will remain region-free - and at present they still constitute a clear majority of upcoming titles over the next year or so.
