Paramount Pictures & R5′s

I would just like to take a moment to share some information I have gathered. From my research, Paramount Pictures have never released an ‘R5′ of any of their productions. Please do correct me if I have missed something.

logo

A little bit about R5′s… what we know as an ‘R5′ tagged release from the scene is a studio-produced unmastered telecine, put out quickly and cheaply to compete against telecine piracy in Russia. Mostly they are released with Russian audio only, so scene groups have to source direct English audio. Not all studios are on board for this and so do not release them, Paramount is one of them. DVD region 5 actually covers a lot of countrys and not just Russia, see here. I will be refering to ‘R5′ as the studio-produced telecines put out in Russia and not the retail region 5 DVD releases.

Please take the time to look through Paramount’s list of productions and you will see that none of the productions have had an ‘R5′ released before the retail release, See list here.

The list includes ‘Indiana Jones 4‘, ‘The Love Guru‘, ‘Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging‘. Also, Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk may very well fall under this too as Paramount are distributors for them, however Marvel would have the most leverage over releasing R5′s for their movies and I don’t think any of their previous productions have had any R5′s releases. There is no Russian distributor listed for Iron Man although Universal is listed for The Incredible Hulk.

Whenever you see ‘estimated’ R5 dates, they are just that… guesses, please try not to take them literally.

This is just my opinion based on my research, so, you *may* still see an R5 of the before mentioned movies, but its doubtful in my opinion.

Edit: As pointed out in the comments, rightly so, Disney also does not release R5′s.

    So which is it, do they not release R5s at all, or do they just release R5′s *after the R1/2 release*? ‘cos if it’s the latter, then “I’ll wait for the R5″ is a perfectly valid, if a little perplexing, choice.

    at last someone who actually understands what a r5 is what a telecine is and who releases them well done it needed saying because most people who comment on this site dont really understand and as for a telesync being better than a screener as someone commented on indy 4 get your eyes tested mate screener is a direct source telesync is a cam no competition

    August 6th, 2008 | 20:57

    @6 you are right!!!!

    Also, most of these get screeners anyways

    Just like The Love Guru, which had a dvd screener in its 2nd week in the theatre

    cheers for the info but no need to get snotty about people posting about r5 release dates there is new people getting into downloading films every day so you are always going to have “”noobs”" asking questions like this,get used to it if it wasnt for “”noobs”" from a couple of years ago we would have no seeds when downloading movies so think of the future seeds we will have if the “”noobs”" are fully aware of what they are doing just tought i would post this cause i have seen a lot of antinoob comments coming from people on this site

    I can’t believe that I’ll probably have to wait till December for a good quality Dark Knight rip. I don’t have the money to see it in theaters and the only thing I have is the PreVail release (which is still decent quality but nowhere near as good as a dvdrip/R5/Screener.

    If TDK R5 or Screener is released within the next week, I swear I will download it and then stop being a pirate forever as TDK is the only thing I want right now.

  13. August 6th, 2008 | 21:17

    thanks for the info :D well done

    August 6th, 2008 | 21:18

    you’re technically wrong. when it goes retail in russia, it will be in PAL and sold as a DVD with R5 protection, thus an R5 DVD, but cleaned and mastered. But by that time, there will be an R1 retail pred in the scene, so it won’t matter to all the kidz at rlslog. i know a nitpick, but you should strive for accuracy. and why hire another lame editor who just copies and pastes? a space monkey can do that.

  15. Durrrr
    August 6th, 2008 | 21:18

    Ummmmm DVDScr still come out, so we can just say we’ll wait for R5/DvDScr. I can’t speak for everyone here but personally I don’t give a rats ass which company makes the movie I want to see so I don’t bother to check to see if it’s Paramount or Universal or whatever.

    after looking around the net found this..

    http://www.comingsoon.net/dvd/?year=2008&month=9

    on 30th of september it does say there is a retail dvd of ironman plus forgetting sarah marshall in a 3 dvd collectors edition i always check that site only because it lists for months on end for releases and also comes in handy for other things.

  25. hank hill
    August 6th, 2008 | 21:46

    Article is right. The assumption that everything will just automatically released in R5 is crazy. Lucas has never been a big fan of screeners. Iron man comes out in R1 on Sept 30, which means it will hit the scene Sept. 15 or sooner..

    The joker you must be pretty pathetic if you can’t cough up $8 to go see the dark knight at the theatres. Your internet connection probably costs atleast double that. Pathetic people.

    of course… allways look for release dates in amazon or dvd news sites… some movies worth the price (cool packages, gift sets, etc) and TDK or similar are to be wacht in movie theathers… just donwload those crappy ones (romantic comedies, etc)…

    @The Joker

    Stop being a cheap ass bro, the movie has been out in theatres for a couple of weeks now. Pay $8 to see the film the way its MEANT to be seen.

    I truly feel sorry for you if you fail to follow the above.

  30. The Joker
    August 6th, 2008 | 22:03

    I have much more things to worry about than going to a theater. Like, you know, paying for food and bills. I am just barely getting by. I don’t know where you guys live but here in America it is getting harder and harder to survive.

    The nearest theater to me is like an hour away so it isn’t just like $10. Add that to the cab ride there and back and it is much more than that.

    An Internet connection is much more valuable to me than a trip to a theater. And no, I am not being cheap. I will buy it when it comes out on DVD.

    Wait a minute. You’re on a site that specialises in telling people when new movies are leaked on the internet, and allows people to post links to where they can download them…

    ..and you’re telling someone they should be going to the cinema.

    Let me get this straight… you come to RLSLOG just for the message boards then?

  35. L1feless
    August 6th, 2008 | 22:09

    A lot of interesting points made here a lot of which are valid. I for one would like to see a full proper article done on this topic. Including those studios who do and don’t RLS r5′s. Please correct me if I am wrong but is the audio on several r5′s not in English to try and prevent North America from copying the discs as well? (not that is does much good)

    @32 Man if life is hard for you, I would save the cash you are gonna blow on the DVD and like, buy rice or something, like ALOT of rice…

    OT – All the people that stress over release dates crack me up, they come when they come, its a way better suprise when an R5 or Scr just pops up and makes your day, rather than checking and rechecking and spamming unrelated boards day in day out for that alusive, fabled, ‘any day now’ release.

    ‘Liljake351′ your an ass as well. $22 a ticket for me plus someone to look after my kids, just not going to happen and if I like the movie I will buy it when it is released in my country so get a life and stay away from sites like this.

  44. Vincent Chase
    August 6th, 2008 | 22:59

    @36

    If a film is worth being supported, I’ll gladly go to the cinema to enjoy it in its entirety..when a quality rip comes out, I’ll grab it.

    If a film I deem is NOT worth going to the cinema to see, I’ll wait for a good copy thats posted on RLSLOG.

    *Doesn’t take rocket science to know that’s commononers sense…

    @7

    You clearly have not seen the screener for Indy 4. The TS is slightly darker but in wide screen and a touch sharper on the picture, the screener is blurry as hell and in 4:3.

    A good TS can be better than a bad screener both on visuals and audio, while in theory a screener should always be better its not the case and you do get the occasional amazing TS that won’t be beat till the R5 or retail rip arrives.

    can everyone stfu about The Joker? Seriously, I know what it’s like to be in that situation where you can’t freely spend money. It may be time constraints or money constraints, but seriously, leave the poor guy alone. If he can’t go to the theater, he can’t.

    on a much more related note, thank you for posting this. it’s great to read comments for almost every single r5 release asking when Iron Man will come out. I will admit I check this site religiously hoping to see if it is released even though I know by heart I will have to wait until sept 30 to buy the DVD.

  58. liverpoolphil
    August 7th, 2008 | 01:30

    @47 yes i have seen the screener for indy 4 and it is twice as good as the telesync its a cam you knob and the screener is a direct source some bloke sitting in the cinema with a handycam compared to properly transfered film no comparison

    why the hell can’t the scene just relaese Telecines. Like 1408. the telecine quality is nearly as good as an r5 and perfectly watchable. They sit around with telesyncs forever.

  64. sober
    August 7th, 2008 | 07:27

    @ 67 sc0rff

    So exactly how did PUKKA come up with the ‘R5′ tag, was it region based because Russia is in region 5, or is ‘R5′ just an abbreviation for Russia?

  65. w0w
    August 7th, 2008 | 07:36

    @ 67

    do you still have that nfo somewhere?

    also, why do you call them telecine’s, a method of record still frames and turning them into a video file, when r5′s are already full working DVDs from Region-5 if what i believe is correct?

  66. nubby nub!
    August 7th, 2008 | 07:44

    Okay…so let me get this straight…
    An R5 release is a release that a studio themselves will put out hastily and quickly to compete in Russia’s piracy market of movies so they don’t loose too much money due to the piracy…?
    Where does “R5″ come from…what is R1 or R2? (68 asks this too)??
    The talk of R1′s and R2′s make it seem like the studios release multiple versions or something…if so why don’t they just release the one…? That seems like a lot of time and effort directed toward a market that doesn’t technically exist…
    Thanks in advance for helping a nubzor!! :)

    @ sc0rff
    “Please take the time to look through Paramount’s list of productions and you will see that none of the productions have had an ‘R5′ released before the retail release” –
    I’ve just made a search on the web and previous scene R5 releases and must admit you’re right ;-)
    “Whenever you see ‘estimated’ R5 dates, they are just that… guesses, please try not to take them literally.”
    Most of the R5 dates for the past few months proved to be not just guesses – take the time and look on the R5 section here – on this blog.

    @ 71 sc0rff

    “I will be refering to ‘R5′ as the studio-produced telecines put out in Russia and not the retail region 5 DVD releases.”
    R5 is NOT a retail region 5 DVD? So, they don’t sell them in stores, or distribute them as DVDs? Now, that’s some explanation, since “DVD region 5 actually covers a lot of countrys and not just Russia.” Dude, you need to reread your article, better yet, get your facts straight before you write another one.

  72. sober
    August 7th, 2008 | 16:57

    @ 77 sc0rff

    I realized that, the first time I read your article. I just see a contradiction in your article, and the answer you gave, R5′s are region 5, yet, they are not.

    Now, let’s go back to my first question. I always assumed R5 stood for region 5, your article made me understand R5s as something other than region coding. If that makes any sense.

  73. bonzo stuka
    August 7th, 2008 | 18:09

    for what sake’s we need r5 in october of hulk or iron man when those movies will be realease on dvd/bd on that time.it’s 4-5 months after aired in cinemas.time for proper legit realeses not r5 line or etc.

  74. sober
    August 7th, 2008 | 19:11

    @ 79 sc0rff

    Does R5s and mastered DVDs very in price range? If yes, I see why certain studios opt not to release R5s before the masters, that’s just their way of combating international online piracy, while still allowing low income consumers to make a purchase.

    The reason telecines dont come out that often are that the machines are DAMN expensive last time i checked. Back in the day they cost like 100,000$ for the machine to transfer a film reel to a dvd, and thats why only like 1 or 2 groups ever released them. I just want to get back to the good ol days of the amazing quality SVCD TS’s that came out back in like 2004
