Many people have the same query, for example:
If you can't find it on these sites, we don't know where else to try.
Note: be careful of formats and standards: PAL vs NTSC, and the "zone" for DVDs. Also watch the delivery charges.
We carry the upcoming releases for next week in advance on our Forthcoming Attractions page, but even that is sometimes incorrect. We used to advertise the release schedule for a month ahead, but there were so many changes that it became too inaccurate for public consumption.
In general, the Hollywood blockbusters usually get here within 6 months of their US release. Arthouse and indie releases can take up to two years. Arthouse releases may have only 1 print showing, and that may take more than 6 months to move from one main centre (eg Cape Town) to another (eg Johannesburg). Occasionally, South Africa is used as a test market, and we get to see movies before the rest of the world.
