Sicario 2: Soldado (2018, UK Release)

Post by Cigar » Fri Oct 19, 2018 11:21 pm

Hi guys,

I just want to say that there's a new release coming out soon in the UK. It is Sicario 2: Soldado on Blu ray. It comes out on the 29th of October 2018 and is due for about Halloween time. Now I know I'm jumping the gun a bit but I've got a feeling that when this release comes out, due to it being another Lionsgate release I've got a strong feeling that Lionsgate are planning for yet another one of their special nasty Dummy Playlist selections again. Possible for this upcoming release, another set of hundreds of dummy playlists I just hope I'm wrong this time. Last one I bought was Gotti 2018 with John Travolta. With Sicario 2 coming out and being a fairly big release this time I've just got that feeling that Lionsgate are going all out again to try and stop their movie being ripped.

They seem to be getting into the habit of doing this now. If you have the latest PowerDVD running on your PC you can open the Blu ray with it and then download Process Monitor from Microsoft. There is plenty of information on YouTube how to find out which is the correct playlist. Just find the videos that I'm talking about and follow the instructions. It does seem very easy really if you follow it correctly step by step. I don't have the latest PowerDVD so there's no way I can open up these latest Blu Rays on my PC I can only open them in my Blu ray player. I've just got a bad feeling with this upcoming release, if it does indeed happen to be like this again, just like Gotti was then please can somebody find out what the correct one is? Might have to get into the habit of finding out what these ones are from now on so we can all have access to the correct playlist in future.

Otherwise if nobody does bother about this non of us are going to be able to rip these future Lionsgate UK releases as the protection is that bad without having an up to date PowerDVD it will be impossible to figure it out.

All the best and many thanks if you manage to figure it out ;-)

It is rather hard to check something that hasn't been released... Unless you know someone who gets pre-release copies. :)

It's also useless to worry about them.

I can confirm that this new Sicario 2, UK release does indeed have a very nasty looking playlist protection on there. I was infact right, I did have a strong feeling it would be. Please if somebody can help here that would be a relief as I'm kind of stuck here and I'm counting on somebody to come and post on this thread to deliver some kind of hope on the matter. I will leave things in the capable hands of the people of this forum...

Why would they only do this with the UK release and not the US release?

Because my friend, that is Sony and this one is Lionsgate...
