$12 Blu-rays @ Wal-Mart -- X-Men, The Wrestler, Juno, and more



Note: I learned after I took the picture that Fight Club wasn't listed on the display anywhere, and I didn't scan the one copy in the display to verify the price. It might just be $12 as well, however, along with a sole copy of Man on Fire in there.

hmm I don't see a picture anywhere even though when I quote your msg I see the tags. Tried to copy and paste the URL and page came up blank for me.

The image is given as just 1x1 pixels after doing that.

Sure thing. I re-uploaded the image, so hopefully it'll show now.

The display at my store also had The Princess Bride, which I snagged the last copy of for $12.

I almost bought that one too last week, but I don't think I've ever watched my DVD of it so I passed.

I bought a bunch from this display when the Fox $3 off and Smartsource $3 off coupons were still active for many of these titles ... making them $9 each.

Unfortunately, those coupons expired on Jan 6th.

The Princess Bride BD includes the DVD too, making it a pretty good deal.

Yeah, but isn't it the original bare-bones version?

Right now, Amazon has X-Men and X2 for $13.99 each. It's not $12 each. But, it's still pretty good.

Just curious, did Fox drop the 3rd disc (digital copy) from the X-Men releases? Amazon says they're two disc sets...

Only the boxset version of the X-Men films included a digital copy.

I just checked my closest wal mart and they only had about half of the titles listed. They didn't have The Wrestler which is why I went in. Hopefully the bigger store I'm checking tonight has it.

There was no display at my local Wal-Mart. The $12 blu's were mixed in with the other DVD's and the selection wasn't that big. It was only a few titles (X-Men, Eragon, Man on Fire, Mr. and Mrs. Smith, and one or two others.) I picked up Mr. and Mrs. Smith, but no sign of Hitman which I was also looking for.

Re: $12 Blu-rays @ Wal-Mart -- X-Men, The Wrestler, Juno, and more

It appears that Walmart might be planning on flexing out just about every single DVD title with the setup I saw today. Every end-cap had stacks of DVDs for $5 (in addition to the normal bargain bins), and several of these blu titles had been placed where DVDs used to be.

I also want to add that Air Force One had been marked at 12 dollars next to some of these titles, but it actually had a pink price sticker on each copy and didn't have a shelf tag for it. I also believe I saw Boondock Saints and Godzilla mixed in with these. However, I must note again that my local Walmart pitched the shipper and instead just shelved the product.

Same at both of my local stores. I was really hoping to find The Wrestler

Air Force One is $13.00. I found it in a different section with Anaconda, Blue Thunder SE, Starship Troopers
