The Incredible Hulk - originally scheduled for R5 release much sooner (July 8th), but sources indicate it was pushed back to November.
Kung-Fu Panda - R5 is scheduled for Nov. 30th.
The Chronicles of Narnia - Prince Caspian - R5 date has been pushed back to December; the DVDrip will likely appear much sooner than this (Oct. / Nov.)
Wall-E - Slated for R5 release on December 11th.
It should be noted that R5?s are not just exclusive to Russia - parts of Asia and Africa also share the same DVD Region Code 5. The reason why R5?s are found so early on the scene is because in Russia most movies are released to DVD (R5) within a matter of weeks after the theatrical debut. The typical theatre-to-DVD turnaround time is 8 weeks on average, although it can be much sooner.
Some film companies don?t release R5?s at all, as is the case with Paramount and Disney. As is often the case, a DVDrip will beat an R5?s release date.
Popular Release Groups & R5?s: BaLD, mVs, PUKKA, RUiNS, iNQONTROL, KAMERA, TDM, TLo, iAPULA, DEViSE, UNiVERSAL, iGNiTE, DREAMLiGHT.
