Before I read the review of this new disc I didn't know that the first U.S. Theatrical Cut dvd that Anchor Bay released really was a cross between the extended Director's Cut and the true Theatrical Cut. By the way, a new review is up at dvdfile, http://dvdfile.com/software/review/d...edead_se.html.

Anyone find this anywhere besides K-Mart at any other retail stores? I would love to get before the weekend. Like a Best Buy or something...

Your usual retail outlets, like Best Buy, aren't dumb enough to break street date. I'm surprised that Kmart did. Wal-Mart's been known to do things like this, since some of them put Ed Wood on the shelves a couple of weeks ago, even though it was recalled.

I tried 2 Best Best Buys and nothing. Tried a local K-Mart and nothing. Today I went to a different K-Mart 20 minutes away and found it! They had 2 left and quickly found somebody to get it out of the glass case. They have 1 left at the K-Mart on Jumpers Hole Rd in Millersville/Glen Burnie MD if anybody's interested.

K-Mart in Colonia3/Avenel & Best Buy in Woodbridge definitely don't have it out yet. I stopped by both today.
The K-Mart has it out now. I just picked it up for $15.

That's too funny. I literally came here to post that the Big K-Mart on Route 18 also has a ton of them. I should have checked here first, would have saved me a trip. They also had it for $15 but the thrill isn't there anymore, isn't the street date this Tues?

Stopped by K-Mart today and there was around 4 to 5 copies. I almost overlooked them because they were stocked at the very bottom shelf of the children's DVD's across from the new release section. This has to be the first time I ever recall them breaking street date on anything!

Thanks OP!

Thanks so much for posting about this. I found one at my local Kmart. Apparently it was the last copy.

I'll double dip on this one when the SE comes out, but I'm thrilled to have my hands on the single-disc edition so early.

The comment about Best Buy not being stupid is incorrect, I got 'Day of the Dead' two weeks early at Best Buy.

Wow, I'm shocked Best Buy broke street. Why are so many stores doing this? Maybe they figure Anchor Bay won't do anything about it.

I don't think that breaking street date with a catalog title causes anywhere near the amount of concern than doing the same thing with a new release title would. Plus Anchor Bay doesn't really have much clout to penalize retailers like a major studio would.

Found mine at the local Super K in Amherst Ohio. The picture quality is excellent for this release. Im looking forward to the Deluxe Version in the fall.

Bought a copy yesterday at the Petaluma, California K-Mart for 14.99. They still have 3 copies left I believe if anyone wants to know. They are right across from the DVDs in the glass case, stocked with the VHS'.

I was just about to sell my anniversary edition until I saw in this thread that it's a different cut from any other release. Oh well.

It says his location is Finland, so unless he has a dvd player that plays region 1, they aren't the same.
