Are the Bluray Extended Editions Region Free? Can't Post

I've been holding off to order the Amazon Special Extended Edition with WETA Statue until I find out, but I still haven't got a conclusive answer! Are the Blurays Region Free?

Yes. [In reply to] Can't Post

At least in theory anyway. I haven't tested the theory though.

According to this: http://www.bluraysforeveryone.com/region-code. And this is probably the key bit:
Determining If A Movie Will Be Region Free
In determining if a pre-order will be region free here is a small guideline to help predict the future. I don't list any region code of a movie on my site until it has been confirmed, but you can cheat a little by using these guidelines.

Warner: All discs are region free.

According to this site... [In reply to] Can't Post


the answer is hopefully yes:


Note that not all Blu-ray movies are region coded. Movies from Warner Bros., and upcoming releases from Paramount and Universal will most likely all be region-free. Disney and Sony's catalogue title releases are usually region-free as well, and only their new movie releases are region coded. All Fox Blu-ray titles are region coded, even catalogue titles.

Thanks! [In reply to] Can't Post

I hope it will be, but I'm not willing to bet $70 plus shipping until I know for sure!
