Does anyone know if these exclusives will be put on the shelves today? The ad doesn't indicate like it usually does, but they seem to be separated from the "New releases February 1st" top section.

Online, it shows Feb. 1 for those titles. Of course, some stores could put them out early, but YMMV.

I went to my store anyway to see what would happen. They had Almost Famous and The Long Kiss Goodnight out and price tags for all of the other ones, but none of them were on the shelf. I asked a rep and he agreed initially that they should be out since exclusives are typically put out on Sunday, but he looked on the website and saw the 2/1 release date and said there wasn't anything he could do for me today. Maybe other stores will put them out, who knows. They also did not have Hannibal and said that they aren't even going to be carrying it in-store at that location?

No go at my store for the $9.99 titles.

They did have Never Let You Go out early though...

Picked up Almost Famous about an hour ago at my local BB.
No signage just on the shelf in the "A" section with the other Blu's.

The problem with Almost Famous is the transfer sucks.

For $15 (and the chance of a lower price in 30 days), I'll take it even to get a marginally better transfer over the DVD. I'm still keeping my 3 disc DVD, though.

Well the regular price is $20, it'll go lower eventually, I don't doubt it, I just don't know if that pos company Paramount will offer replacements to those who bought it if they ever decide to fix their transfers.

This company has pissed me off to the max now, mess up with Sapphire Series, shit transfer for American Beauty a hugely anticipated title and now this.

Got Almost Famous, Last House on the Left, Rules of Attraction and Leaving Las Vegas. When I got there, those last three titles were in their own stand but AF wasn't out yet so one of the employees went back and them out (only had 6 copies total).

Well, if it is not porting over the extras, I'll wait for it to go to $10 then. Then, I'll use one of 2-disc blu-ray cases and just put them together. Interesting note, I found 4 issues of the magazine at a Half-Price books and grabbed them. Good times

Same here with AF. Had to ask. Got what you got + Poltergeist II and Still Waiting.

My Best Buy (York, PA) had a cardboard display shelf in the aisle with all the exclusives (even the ones supposed to come out on 2/1). I only picked up Almost Famous. Considered getting Dead Man Walking, but ended up putting it back.

One of my stores did have the exclusives out early. They had a cardboard display with all of the 9.99 exclusives. I forgot to look for Almost Famous, but I already ordered it for in-store pickup at a different store...

Did anyone find I Spit On Your Grave (1978) at their BB's cardboard display?

I know it's not a BB exclusive, but my local store had the Remake on the display when I went today.

Aren't both versions of the movie set for release on February 8th? I think your store goofed.

Anyone see Out of Sight at their BB? Supposed to be one of the other exclusives. Didn't see it at mine.

I didn't see it at mine today and I also didn't see Almost Famous. The lady said it will be out tomorrow.

Just curious did anyone else see I Spit On Your Grave remake in the cardboard display for $9.99? I know the original is supposed to be the exclusive but the one I saw matches up to the one on the Best Buy website as being $29.99.
