New Wal-Mart $5.50 Display

Today Wal-Mart had a big cardboard shelf display by the front doors with 15-20 different DVDs in it for $5.50. I don't remember seeing these titles in their discount bins before. Most of them seemed to be widescreen versions. The ones I remember are:

Back to School (a must-buy at this price)
Roxanne (now Full Screen only, so thumbs down)
Used Cars
Finding Forrester
A Few Good Men

There is a non-anamorphic BACK TO SCHOOL as well as an anamorphic one; are you sure the Wal-Mart stand only offers the former?

How do you tell the difference between the two Back To School versions?

This is the only R1 I have ever seen, and it isn't anamorphic. Would like to know where you have seen an anamorphic one.

Um, in my DVD cabinet. I can't find an image of the new case, and don't own a scanner, but someone made a custom BACK TO THE SCHOOL DVD cover and, though they made a totally new front for it, they are using the exact same back cover as the anamorphic release currently on the market:

You'll notice the reference to the collectible booklet is now gone, but the 16:9 status has been updated in the bottom lefthand corner.

Thanks Filmmaker. Also it has a different UPC. I'll keep a look out for the Anamorphic one.

sigh. as always my store lacks the display. it'll show up in a week no doubt.

If your store has a 'seasonal' display though, Blazing Saddles (30th anniv) has finally dropped to a mere 5.50! Had to get a price override to get it, but it IS a shelf label, so while YMMV, you should be fine.
(standard action movies + westerns otherwise, no other stunning prices, EXCEPT Jeremiah Johnson/How the West Was Won 2 pack at 7.44...but the copies there were ONLY Jeremiah Johnson that I could see...)
This is of course father's day related...I suppose I should throw out a new thread on this. perhaps when I've more energy in the morning.

I wonder if this was the thing I saw still in its big cardboard shipper box a few days ago. Guess I'll have to go back and check.

Where did you see Finding Forrester and those others in your Wal Mart? I went to the one in Warren, MI and didn't find any.

That's because that Wal-Mart sucks!

So, these are $5.50, not $4.88?

Found Back To School (Anamorphic Version). It wasn't in a special bin, but just mixed in with the rest of the $5.50 dump bin. Also saw a copy of Roxanne and A Few Good Men mixed in as well.

To Die For is also in this display. I already got that one when it was in a $7.50 Wal-Mart discount sale two years ago.
