Before everyone and their brother (no pun intended) tries to order the DVD off amazon.co.jp or some such place, I think a disclaimer is in order. Even if it does have English subtitles, the movie will not be Region 1 encoded (which some other posters have mentioned but not made an explicit point of). Just to clear the air for any who might not know, that means that most of us won't be able to play the DVD unless we shell out the money to get a region-free DVD player. Also, I remember hearing (but I don't remember where) that computers, specifically Dells I believe, can change region somehow, but only a limited number of times.
I agree with Ladymercury--I'll wait for the online sub and/or Region 1 version of the movie. Of course, if you have friends with access to illegally burned copies of DVDs, which are region code free, well...you have more options.
of course not. REGION 2 ALL THE WAY BABY!
hee hee, Japan has same regions as the UK, so not a prob, but i guess for u guys american releases for media is better and much simpler i suppose.... but there will be the subbed versions on this online so that'll tide you over, u can burn it to dvd then

Actually It only takes about $20 to make your Xbox & PS2 be able to play all region dvd's. Just need the DVD region X program.
I had an awful time finding a region coding disk or my Gamecube in the States (and ended up having a friend send me one from Korea), not that it can play DVDs. Hopefully the coding disks for Xboxes and PS2s are easier to find for everyone, but I honestly don't know anything about Xboxes and PS2s (obviously). It's fantastic if they can easily be converted. Xboxes do have a purpose....

you know once hong kong get their hands on it, it's black market central for christmas time... not a bad thing on you guys part if u want an 'offical' dvd in your hands pretty soon.
Hehehe, hohoho, bwahahaha!! (That's my evil laugh. ) And, about the region code thingy... I could be wrong, but if I'm correct, certain brands of DVD players sold in U.S., espicially the older models, play BOTH region 1 and region 2 DVDs. I think APEX is one of them.
