Earlier we used to post about popular movie leaks as separate posts on this blog. However with so many release blogs around (which are often faster than us), we figured this had little use to our readers. So now we only update via Twitter when hit movies are leaked on BitTorrent. Anyway here is a little heads up on several Hollywood blockbusters that would most probably hit torrent sites (DVD quality copies that is, not CAM or TS) in the months of August/September 2009. This speculation is based on the fact that DVD for region 5 (R5) release dates for these titles are scheduled for the next two months.

Note that the above mentioned dates might not always be 100% accurate. Sometimes the release date is postponed and sometimes leaked copies make it into BitTorrent even before an official release is made ( as you can see from Ice Age 3).
If you don’t know what an R5 is, it’s a DVD release for region 5 (most of Africa, Former Soviet Union, the Indian subcontinent, Mongolia and North Korea). R5 DVDs usually do not have English audio but groups who release pirated versions make it a point to embed an English audio stream from a previously released TS or CAM. This means an R5 has almost the same video quality as a DVDRip but lower sound quality [Read more about R5 on Wikipedia].
And it was heartbreaking to see that I have to wait till November for Transformers 2 R5 to be released.
