A Lego version though? Where did that come from?
This 'Lego Version' is a fan film that some teenager in the U.K. did in his spare time. He took certain scenes from the movie, bought that LEGO Film Studio set and made those certain scenes all with lego, including the LEGO men dancing/talking and signing. I've seen it and it's hilarious. It can be seen over at LEGO.com. It's done really well. The team thought it was so good they actually paid the guy and they put it on the Collector's Edition DVD
Added the 3 Disc Special Edition of Black Hawk Down and Die Another Day Special Edition to my DVD Collection today
The regional code is simple. How many times they can make money from the same film in every different region of the world.
Which btw is seen as anti competitive by ours and others law courts as well various consumer organisations.
Matrix Reloaded will be out October 14, or there abouts, according to ezydvd. No special features announced as yet, and I expect the release date to change, but not by much.

Don't think so, they will probably wait until everyone has the standard version like they did last time.
