where can I find out the release date for a film that isn't yet released only showing presently in the USA? I would like to know when can we expect to see it in Ireland? It was only released on 12th October in the USA. My other question is it possible to get it here asap? if not when is it being released on DVD? Thanks

Hi Clare,

the release date is decided by the distributor which owns the rights on a specific territory. So you could/should consult its website. But sometimes it is even difficult to find out which ditributor owns these rights...

What do you mean by "get it here"?

Regarding the DVD release, same thing as theatrical releases: rights are owned by a distributor (which might be different from the theatrical release...), which decides on the release dates, in compliance with local regulations (some countries impose a certain period of time between theatrical and DVD or VOD releases). My best advice would be to keep an eye on the relevant Amazon website (amazon.co.uk?)

By the way, it would help if you would share the movie title...!

Also note, if we have the release date for Ireland, and it is not already displayed near the top of the main title page, you should be able to find it by clicking on the date to reach the release dates sub-page, for example, https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1727824/releaseinfo
