Almost Famous 4K is a Best Buy exclusive? I don't see it at Amazon.

I preordered both the Blu-ray and 4K versions of Almost Famous. I had originally ordered both from Best Buy, but Best Buy cancelled the Blu-ray order for some unknown reason, so I then preordered the Blu-ray at Amazon. It’s being released next week on the 13th, but Amazon emailed me that It won’t be delivered until the 21st…

My Blu-ray copy of Almost Famous actually shipped today and I should have it Wednesday. That's better than the 21st. I ordered the 4K steelbook for curbside pickup at Best Buy, but I won't be able to pick it up until Saturday. I'm hoping for no dents.

Skillful and suspenseful, Paramount’s beloved thriller BREAKDOWN comes to Blu-ray in a director-approved remaster, from a new 4K film scan. Kurt Russell is Jeff Taylor, headed toward a new life in California with his wife Amy (Kathleen Quinlan). When their car dies on a remote highway, a seemingly helpful trucker (J.T. Walsh) offers Amy a ride to the local diner while Jeff waits with the car. Then Jeff discovers his vehicle was deliberately tampered with, and by the time he gets to the next town, his worst fears are about to come true. This limited-edition also includes new special features, including a look at the never-before-seen alternate opening, and an audio commentary with director Jonathan Mostow and star Kurt Russell.

Special Features:
Commentary By Director Jonathan Mostow and Kurt Russell
Filmmaker Focus: Director Jonathan Mostow on Breakdown
Victory Is Hers - Kathleen Quinlan on Breakdown
A Brilliant Partnership - Martha De Laurentiis on Breakdown
Alternate Opening
Alternate Opening With Commentary By Director Jonathan Mostow

I love this movie, but got the Imprint Blu, from Australia, I believe, and except for commentary on PP which I would be interested in with Russell. The others are probably few minutes like many on the PP line. Might get both. Think the Imprint is remastered, no? Definitely like the PP packaging.

Re: Paramount Presents - new label launching 4/21/20

I already have the digital HD and am getting this just for the Kurt Russell commentary. He's gonna be rolling like he normally does, although this film is more straightforward than anything he ever did with John Carpenter, which makes it even more curious, IMO. And it's coming from a 4K scan, so that sweetens deal even more.

I just watched Breakdown less than 6 months ago on Prime video. It's good thriller and holds up pretty well.

Maybe I'll get the BD later on at some point. I don't have an immediate urge to re-watch it again right now.

Re: Paramount Presents - new label launching 4/21/20

I have digital too. I just think it’s overkill to have both, but they do both have completely different extras. And, the Russell commentary would be totally worth it. Wonder when it was recorded though. It’s tough.

I know it’s not going to fall under the presents banner, but it appears Paramount is re-releasing the Relic. I only stumbled upon this last night when I tried to watch my old BD of it and it appears to have disc rot.

Latest addition to the Paramount Presents line debuts November 16, 2021 with new bonus content.

Tom Cruise, Penélope Cruz, and Cameron Diaz star in Cameron Crowe’s Vanilla Sky, arriving on Blu-ray as part of the paramount presents line on November 16, 2021 from Paramount Home Entertainment.

Written for the screen and directed by Crowe and newly remastered from a new 4k film transfer under his supervision, Vanilla Sky is presented in a limited-edition Blu-ray disc™ with collectible packaging featuring a foldout image of the film’s theatrical poster and an interior spread with key movie moments. The blu-ray includes a new filmmaker focus with crowe, access to a digital copy of the film, and the extensive legacy bonus content detailed below:

· filmmaker focus: Cameron Crowe on vanilla sky (hd)—new!
· commentary by Cameron Crowe & Nancy Wilson
· alternate ending with optional commentary by Cameron Crowe (hd)
· prelude to a dream (sd)
· hitting it hard (sd)
· an interview with Paul McCartney (sd)
· gag reel (sd)
· music video “afrika shox” by leftfield/afrika bambaataa (sd)
· photo gallery with audio introduction by photographer neal preston (hd)
· mask test with optional commentary by Cameron Crowe (hd)
· Kurt Russell single take with optional commentary by Cameron Crowe (hd)
· trailers (sd)
· deleted scenes with optional commentary by Cameron Crowe (hd)
· credits (hd)

A mind-bending roller coaster ride of romance, suspicion, sex and dreams, Vanilla Sky was produced by Crowe, Cruise and Paula Wagner and features visually stunning cinematography by Academy Award® winner* John Toll (Braveheart, Legends of the Fall), including an unforgettable sequence in New York City’s Times Square. The film was originally released on December 14, 2001 and follows a self-indulgent and vain publishing magnate (Cruise) who finds his privileged life upended after a vehicular accident.

These Paramount Presents releases always look nice, but so far none have been must-own films for me to want to purchase.

I think I have the 4K DV digital of Vanilla Sky, so no reason to get the BD until they release an actual 4K disc of it.
