Can't find Wicker Man 2 disk set!

Has anyone been able to find the original Wicker Man 2 disk set that was released yesterday? I have been unable to locate one copy. I would buy it from Amazon but I want to watch it before I watch the new version...HELP!

The local BB didn't have it (nor did they have The Illustrated Man) but mine was shipped from DDD two days ago.

How can buying from Amazon affect which order you watch a movie?

I think Wildo1966 probably means he/she was hoping to pick it up locally instead of having to wait for it to arrive from an online shop.

I bet FYE will have it, probably cost more than retail price too. But it's a toss up, pay the $8 for 2nd shipping from amazon to get before the weekend or pay $3 over retail from FYE...FYE seems to be the only B&M store that gets most new releases...

$14.99 at Fred Meyer. Annoyingly they had them shelved back with the old DVD's rather than in the New Releases section.

Where naturally they had 30 copies of the POS remake.

It's at Best Buy. But it ain't in the Horror section, I actually found it in Sci-Fi. Go figure...

Likewise, which I thought was bizarre, considering they still had copies of the 1-disc Wicker Man in stock in the Horror Section.

My Borders had two copies of the 2 disker, but dozens of copies of the new, dumb Nick Cage version.

They were located back in the general release section, not up front with the new releases.

I paid full price for mine, $19.99 + tax, which I'll be returning once my $11.99 copy arrives from DDD, and I transfer the price tag.

It's amazing these places stay in business! Thanks Borders.

FYE was actually good today! I went to the local FYE this afternoon and they had 1 copy of the 2 disk set for $21.99 ($2 above retail), I said what the hell and went to buy it. Much to my surprise it rang up for $14.99, so I saved $7 with their sale! I feel a little better now after getting screwed on their Black Christmas price last week...

Thanks for posting this. When I went today, that's where I found it.

How on earth can Wicker Man be sci-fi? Maybe that's why I could not find it at Best Buy...

I saw one copy of this at Best Buy in Salem tonight when I was browsing around xmas shopping. They had about 15-20 copies of the previous version too. It was in the horror section. $14.99
