Cool! Not really too bad of a price to import.

I'm sure we'll see a US release shortly.

Will the Great Escape be released in the USA in blu ray form also?

Yes, it will!

However as there is no set release date yet we really don't know if it will be the same time as the UK release or not.

But as it is a big classic movie, sooner or later it will come to the US.

We knew back in September that The Great Escape is expected in 2013. No specific information yet. The US does not normally get specific dates until 3 or 4 months before release.
