    loved this movie.
    Actually I bought the canadian release from Entertainment One.
    It has a total Bitrate of 23,24 Mbps with a MPEG-4 AVC Video at 18000 kbps.
    Is the Lionsgate versione the same encoding? Both were released on the same day: May 26, 2015. You said ‘the 1080p image is arrived at with an AVC MPEG-4 codec at an average of 24 mbps’ Are you referring to total Bitrate or only Video bitrate?
    A bdinfo would be really appreciated. Thanks in advance for your reply

    Hey Marco,
    When we give an average bit rate we mean we take samples throughout the film and provide a solid average.
    You sound like you understand this stuff so you know that bit rates fluctuate throughout a film, sometimes vastly.
    That’s why we provide an average.
    That means it can peak in the 30’s or fall as low as the teens at points in the film.
    I have not seen the Canada release but I suspect the transfer is exactly the same.
    It would be too costly to master it twice.
    I hope that answered your question.
    Thank you for reaching out.
