Rambo (UK BD) in June - Region Coding Update

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment have announced the UK Region B Blu-ray Disc release of Rambo on 23rd June 2008 priced at £24.99. Starring Sylvester Stallone, who also co-wrote and directed the film, this latest installment of the popular action series finds our hero John Rambo on a mission to save a group of Christian aid workers who have been kidnapped by Burmese soldiers.

Arriving day-and-date and coded for Region B*, the Blu-ray Disc features all of the DVD extras plus several exclusive extras including picture-in-picture commentary with Stallone and branching featurettes.

*Sony UK discs are usually coded for all regions, and the back cover artwork Sony have provided for Rambo indicates this to be the case. However, we have a disc in hand for Rambo and it is coded Region B only. Sony have provided official word on this confirming the Region B status and also suggesting some initial batches may incorrectly have the Region A, B and C icons on the packaging...

"To date the majority of SPHE UK Blu-ray titles have been coded 'All regions'. As SPHE only has limited rights to this title, on this occasion the title was coded 'Region B'. Unfortunately this title has been labelled incorrectly with the standard 'All region' logo rather than 'Region B' and moving forward this will be corrected."
