Free Discs at Best Buy

I didn't see this mentioned yet. I just went into Best Buy to pick up Jersey Girl and they had a couple of free DVDs today. There is a "Special Sneak Preview" of Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow and they also had a sampler of MLBs Greatest Rivalries.

That was more than "just some interview" The Making of featurette that comes on this freebie may be part of an EPK but it was fairly long (Just over 10 minutes), had a satisfying amount of behind the scenes stuff and enough of the movie to spark my girlfriends interest and make it a definite must see for me.

Was the "Sky Captain" DVD an actual DVD or a CD-rom. I picked up a similar sounding free promo elsewhere and it turned out to be a CD-rom.

The Sky Captain DVD I got is a real DVD- it also has a DVD-ROM game on it but I haven't checked that out yet.

a little question about BB's exclusive extra discs, how do they come packaged to the normal DVDs? in a sleeve or in some special case or what?
