Re: AVENGERS: Grade, Reviews, Discuss, DVD & Sequel **SPOILERS**

That, my fellow ladies and gentledudes, is why I never pre-order anything. I can wait a couple of months. Then there's going to be a release with more special features, maybe even a Director's Cut, and it's going to be cheaper anyways.


I'm actually waiting for that Avengers Box that has everything from Iron Man 1 to The Avengers. But it has been postponed and was never going to be available in Europe anyway?
I also don't want that giant suitcase or whatever. I just want a nice slipcase containing the blu rays, that's all.

^^^
Actually it was good from a marketing standpoint. There were a few overseas holiday's it coincided with, plus it only helped fuel the interest once those folks got on line and began praising the film. It likely is a key reason it opened so much stronger than initial estimates were thinking.

I don't know the exact timing(it was a few weeks later after the US open) but it was also timed to open in, I want to say the Philippines and/or India, where it coincided with a long holiday weekend again. Opening larger there than any film on that date before.

Well it did come out in cinemas a week earlier here too, so to DVD release time wise it's actually the same

It's just an odd concept to me that an American-made movie based on American characters comes out in another nation a full week earlier. It makes little sense to me but, shrug, whatever.

It it is any consolation, the US is one of the few countries to get the uncut version on video along more with bonus features, including Joss Whedon commentary.

UK fans are rightfully pissed that they are getting the inferior verion on video.

RE: the edited version of the film--
Disney UK reports that they removed the spear tip as it was deemed "inappropriate".,

What's weird is that the people that rated movies in the UK were fine that scene and gave it a 12 rating, the movie was shown in theaters no problem.

But for some reason Disney decided to censor it for the video release in the UK and several other countries, hoping no one would notice. They didn't realize certain fans saw the movie multiple times and would remember that important scene. Hmmmm.

Just be gald they didn't censor it in the US versions.

I think that sounds right


UK gets an edited version a week earlier than the US

US gets an unedited version a week later than the UK

Disney? An American company yes? The BBFC said it was fine the way it was, spear sticking out of Coulson's chest and all.
