Just checking Amazon for Safe House and Sherlock...Amazon shows the same release date. I wonder if the "exclusive" is bonus content or "single disc" (=lower price) releases vs the Amazon combo packs?

I saw a endcap display of this yesterday. $5 deposit gets you this and a $5 down payment toward the movie. No price was listed for the Blu-ray set though.

I think the 'exclusive' part is it comes with a Blu-Ray and regular DVD, as if anyone needed that. I want a Blu-Ray and Laserdisc combo pack!

I found info on the True Blood exclusives:
http://www.examiner.com/article/may-29-2012-dvd-and-blu-ray-true-blood-the-complete-fourth-season

Best Buy
True Blood: The Complete Fourth Season DVD and Blu-ray Combo Pack include an exclusive True Blood T-shirt.

Target
True Blood: The Complete Fourth Season includes an exclusive 65 minutes of cast Q&A.

Seeing as both are $34.99, I'm not sure which I'd rather have. I guess I need to see a pic of the shirt. The picture posted is impossible to see clearly.

Do those steelbooks have the same special features/digital copies as the original releases?

I posted this on the HD side, but - for the 5 people who pick up Act of Valor from Best Buy for the exclusive - just a warning, but do NOT throw away the itty bitty sticker on the front. On the back is a code for the "exclusive", where you go to http://actofvalorbestbuy.foxfilm.com to see 8 minutes of behind the scenes footage. Exclusive? I guess, if you want 8 more minutes.

I was one of those 5 people. Yes, it was a total letdown. Not only is the exclusive footage NOT on the disc(s) in the BD/DVD combo, I have to to to a website and type in a code? WTF?! Granted, it's not a burden, but I would expect exclusive (bonus) footage to be on a disc.

Fuck that shit. They can take their code and shove it up their ass. I can't believe how cheap these movie studios are getting. And then they want how much for these releases?

Suck me.

Do those steelbooks have the same special features/digital copies as the original releases?

Yes and no. If it was a single disc release, it has the special features. The Dark Knight is the only one that is a 2 disc set. Sucker Punch only comes with 1 disc (the theatrical cut) although some people have reported getting the extended version instead. Inception lists the special features from the second disc, but it only comes with 1 disc. Some users on bluray.com have said that they contacted WB and they are going to receive a copy of the special features disc, but that is a big YMMV situation.

Other than the batflicks, no digital copies. And those are Ultraviolet copies.

Picking up Shawshank, Goodfellas (both for the wifey) and Book of Eli for myself on Friday. Only 1 store out of about half a dozen near me had all three in stock (and for some reason they were nott willing to ship Shawshank) and its the one I like the least. Oh well, quick in and out then. Neither Shawshank nor Goodfellas we actually own and I always wanted something a little special for Book of Eli, so it made sense here.

I was in my local BB and saw their "exclusive" BD for "The Town" at 14.99. Maybe I wasn't paying attention, but this was new to me. Is this pretty much the same as the pricier second "Collector's" edition of the movie that came out eight months or so after the first edition, but without the physical extras (maps and such)?

The packaging (slipcover and cover art) is also supposed to be part of the Best Buy exclusive. They definitely executed poorly with the exclusive footage though.

The "Over 8 Minutes of Behind the Scenes Footage" (which is what it says on the sticker) is exactly 3 minutes, 25 seconds long. Also, according to the sticker, it expires 9/30/12. If this is true, they could have at least made it easy for people to download the content after entering the code.

As it turns out, you don't even need the code. You can just download the footage here: http://actofvalorbestbuy.foxfilm.com/media/video/Trailer1.mp4
