I Know This is Early...Question About Batman Anthology

Does anyone know what the approximate price for this will be? Just curious. I know it's super early to be asking.

I would say in the $50-60 range. Amazon has it for $51.98 now with free shipping. I'm thinking the b&m stores will be around the same.

Woah that's a good deal at BB. Assuming you pay $20 and $15 for BBDE and batman/returns respectively that's $50 right there, and they may even be a little more than that. Hmmm....

Could always sell off BF and B&R too.

Nice!
I am going to go that route.

I'm holding out to buy singles of first installment, Batman, and maybe Batman Returns. There's no way I'm getting stuck with the Shumacher versions of Batman.

Buy the box, listen to the commentaries for the last 2 to see how in the hell Schumacher explains himself, sell them for a nickel, and end up spending the same $ as if you had just bought the first two in the first place.

Batman Returns: the movie that Michelle Pfeiffer actually bothered to act in. Her perfomance in this film is worth the price of the whole Anthology.

all are available from columbia house - those familiar with ways to get it from them, that would be the cheapest route.

Total of $60.00 for the entire set, probably around $63 or $64 with tax?

I think I'm going to faint.

How in the hell? I've been waiting for this for a long time, and having the ability to purchase all of that for a low price? The BB: DE and Batman Anthology? Boo-yah!

Thanks for the heads up. Lately, I've been holding off on pre-ordering from places like AMAZON b/c of special deals on pricing or BONUS discs that might be available at B&M stores.

Now I wonder if a bonus disc or something will be offered?


I'm still going to wait until the weekly ads are posted online, before I make my decision. I know I'm going to get the BOX-SET and the DELUXE begins... I just gotta figure out where.

Yeah, I'm going to wait and see what Circuit City has to offer ... Do you guys think they will price match the 49.99 and the BB: DE for 9.99 at CC?

Oh ... LOL @ Dabaomb

Edit: I started exercising my mad math "skills" a little while ago...

If BB offers the Batman Anthology for $49.99 with the Begins DE for $9.99, then we are looking at the possibility of getting all of the Bat-movies for under $58 ($57.76 @1.07 tax) at Circuit City (if they aren't running a promotion).

Target price is $49.99 and CC is $52.99. I haven't seen the BB ad but if Monster has it right that's a great bargain for all of them.

Presuming that Best Buy deal comes through that's a definite score.

Keep in mind that the Best Buy deal is more than likely $9.99 for the single-disc version of Begins.. If you want the 2-disc, you're probably screwed out of this deal.

Can anyone confirm any of the Target, BB and CC prices? For both the Batman Anthology and / or Batman Begins Deluxe Edition?

Also, I was considering pre-ordering all of them on Amazon. However, I'm not certain when those pre-orders are processed. How many days before release are they typically processed?

Hey, cool $49.99 is a good price

I didn't really like Batman Begins but for $9.99 either the single or double disc that's a good price.

Although the poster did specifically say Deluxe Edition, so we'll see.

Woops.. Musta missed out on that part. I went ahead and ordered the anthology from Korea since they're getting the teaser art, and it was only like $60.00 shipped.
