Has anyone else noticed this? Most of the titles in their preorder list are DVDs I have owned for over a year, but they are listed with "new" release dates. Just on the 2nd page there is Beetlejuice, Bone Collector, Boogie Nights, and Braveheart. It shows them all as preorders to be released later this month. What's up with that?

Huh? Well some of them are re-releases and maybe the other ones you have are just bootlegs.

Some are re-releases and some are probably price changes. A lot of retailers will show a price changed DVD as a preorder, i.e. the change date being the "release" date.

We wouldn't list the titles in the pre-release section if they just had a price change. However, if the studio goes out of stock and then later re-releases the title, we could list that in the pre-release section.
