I figured there was a good chance that was the case, and if nobody else reports new stock we can probably consider it confirmed.

Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

I ran into one location today that had put out a small assortment of BDs and DVDs upfront from what I believe was the last shipment a couple of weeks back.

Picked up American Hero, Assassination, The Innkeepers and Billionaire Ransom on Blu-ray. Interesting DVDs included a couple of animated DC features, including Justice League: Gods and Monsters.

Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

JoeySeven mentioned it over in the DVD Bargains thread, so I figured that somebody should mention it here: DVDs and Blu-rays are the upcoming "Item of the Week." My local store has them out already, although they were on the electronics aisle and not in the IotW display area at the front of the store. I picked up nine Blu-rays:

Fright Night 2: New Blood (Blu-ray/DVD combo pack w/digital copy)
Maps to the Stars
Wish Upon (Blu-ray/DVD combo pack)
Holiday Inn (Blu-ray/DVD combo pack w/digital copy)
Seth MacFarlane's Cavalcade of Cartoon Comedy
Office Space
The Secret
Bulletproof Monk
Return to Sender

I also picked up nine DVDs.

Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

I've been to all the stores here in town either Friday, or Saturday, and about half had the movies out. Two of the ones today had them in the front "Item of the Week" bins, but I've also seen them in electronics, and on endcaps.

Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

One out of four locations I visited had them out this weekend. Some stores put their inventory out as soon as it comes off the truck, while other stores wait for the advertised date.

The list of all available BDs in this batch is pretty erratic and variable. I got such unheralded movies as

The Phenom
Ping Pong Playa
Citizen Soldier
Honey 3
Kevin Hart: I'm A Grown Little Man

Mostly independent films and a few from bigger studios.

Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

One of the local stores put out some new DVDs and BluRays today, and I saw literally nothing that's been mentioned by other posters. I didn't get a complete list, but the BluRays I did see included:

The Almighty Johnsons Season 1
Bad Words
The Infiltrator
Robocop (2014)

Agree,this is what is happening .


According to a poster over at BR.COM the new stock is schedule to be out this Friday.But some stores already have their stock out for sale. I mean this is DT we are talking about.

The tittles are kind of meh, about 90/10 in favor on dvd's at the one store in my town.

Br.com dt thread has a post #9870 of all tittles found so far.

Thank you! I don't see any titles of interest that I don't already own; but that said most of the best films I've seen lately have been dollar tree blind buys!

Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

All i can do is swing by store close by and see if they have any out and hope all the good stuff not gone lol cause of collectors or resellers any. i saw some of list above, but in way easier just to go and see what possible at time so not get mad if what u want is not there cause other stockpile for own gain or get for others who cant get for themselves at time.

Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

Those of you that didn't see anything last week could try now, it seems some of the stores hold the stock until it's supposed to be out.

I went back to the stores where I didn't find anything last week, and they all had them out now as the deal of the week.

Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

I only went to one store. They had a lot of stuff, 95% of which I'd never heard of. 14 blind buys blu & dvd; + 1 Twilight Zone dvd of rarities (These episodes were not on the dvd box, I will have to look before I open it to see if they're on the blu box). At $1.00 each (actually $1.11 with our criminal sales tax) if any become an empty case I'll live!

They also had Experimenter on DVD which I picked up last time.

blus:

Management
Skateland
Stranded
Paranorman
PBS Norman Lear

DVD's in that thread. They had a TON more, but 15 blind buy's was enough........

Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

Found a few stores that had them out. Mostly DVD, and mostly of no interest.
I did, however, grab the lone copy I saw of Descent (2007/Rosario Dawson). It was a DVD. I'd hoped for a BluRay of that one, but AFAIK it's never had a Region A Blu release (?).

Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

Seeing how some upgrade from dvd over time to br then not be shocked if scalpers/ resellers hit up stores when told of new shipments come by and stockpile br any to sell later and charge extra at anytime. so i glad i went to store close by and stockpile what i can and any want most so plenty left for others to score some cheap but by chance good movies. for now i just cant get straight br, so gotta be a combo with dvd if chance at time.

Re: Dollar Tree BLU Rays!

I think resellers have given up hunting Dollar Tree sales, if only because the generally declining market for BDs has made that arbitrage play fairly unprofitable. You did see it when Dollar Tree first got into carrying Blu-rays.

I'll point out that Magnet/Magnolia's DVDs which show up at Dollar Tree often show up later in their Blu-ray versions a few months later. It's a pattern I've noticed quite often.
