BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE!

As you may have deduced from that New Year’s greeting – yes, we’re releasing a Limited Edition Stereo Widescreen VHS!

This is of course the preferred home video alternative for this movie. But we recognize that some of you still prefer more modern formats, so we bundle each VHS with a Blu-Ray disc. This also means you don’t have to buy the movie twice.

So how do you get one? These puppies will be exclusively sold by Platekompaniet here in Norway. They are not listed at their website yet, but we’ll let you know once they are.

Again, check out the amazing alternate artwork for this thing! As always, graphic design by Alen Grujic and with photos by Ellen Ugelstad:

IN CLOSING

An important note for our international friends:

The description above is for the Norwegian home video release of the movie by Euforia Film and Paramount Home Entertainment, to be released on January 12.

As the movie gets released in other territories, the region codes, extras and subtitles will vary. Ultimately it will be up to the local distributor to decide the final content.

Rights have so far been sold for the Nordic countries, The UK, Canada, Germany, Austria and Switzerland. We’ll let you know once release dates are set for these countries, as well as keep you posted on further countries that will see release, be it theatrically, on DVD/Blu-Ray or on VOD. Or even VHS.

Hm… the only thing we’re missing now is the Laserdisc…
