Eight Exclusive Lionsgate Blu-ray Titles at Best Buy This Sunday (Update 2)

Posted August 29, 2010 04:05 AM by Juan Calonge

Blu-ray MoviesBest Buy is going full steam ahead with Blu-ray exclusivity deals. The latest addition is a wave of catalog titles from Lionsgate Home Entertainment, slated for general release on October 5, but which are available on BB shelves from August 29: 2001 Maniacs, Bad Lieutenant, The Blair Witch Project, Hard Candy, High Tension, Open Water / Open Water 2: Adrift, Secretary, and Wonderland.

According to BB's website updated early Sunday morning, four of those titles (2001 Maniacs, High Tension, Open Water / Open Water 2: Adrift, and Wonderland) go for a very low $7.99. The other four are priced at $9.99.

Also available are Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy ($19.99), Deep Blue Sea ($12.99) and The Score ($14.99).

Today, Blu-ray enthusiasts definitely have a good reason to get up early and be at the gates of their nearest Best Buy first thing in the morning.

Update: the official release date of all the above titles has changed to August 31 on the Best Buy website, and numerous stores are saying those titles cannot be sold until Tuesday.

Thanks to forum member "DetroitSportsFan."

Alrighty then. I'm cancelling my orders for Secretary and Hard Candy from Amazon. Not only saving a buck or two per title by purchasing at BB on the 29th but getting them a month earlier than anticipated. Can't complain about that.

The Score - 14.99

BB does have the worst customer service and often useless employees; couldn't agree with mywhitenoise any better on that. What I do like about BB is the rewards program and they usually have pretty good stock. And I can sometimes get them to pricematch blu-rays (depending on who is behind the customer service desk that day).

I'll be picking up Anchorman and Deep Blue Sea (using rewards points) come this Sunday.

johnf14: I realize it's early, but the exclusives in the headline are Lionsgate, and the ones the article is about, so the 7.99 to 9.99 price range is correct. I'd say wait and see on the other Lionsgate titles that aren't advertised in the flyer (e.g., Bad Lieutenant). May end up selling at a reasonable price as well (i.e., that 17.99 price may not be the price it's selling for on Sunday, almost willing to bet it won't be). The other titles aren't Lionsgate, so obviously the 7.99 and 9.99 prices doesn't apply to them.

Used to be a huge best buy fan when they first started getting big, but their customer service and pricing have gotten worse the longer they've been around. Glad to see at least the prices for these are considerably cheaper than I would expect. Still, I'm not a fan of these exclusivity deals.

@mywhitenoise - I've never had a problem with My best buy, They are always friendly and Prices are usually good comapred to other places, plus I get reward points which means I'll buy what I can at bestbuy because over time I get free stuff. I despise futureshop in my town they are always so pushy and a lot of times their blurays are badly stocked (not in order, cuts on the packages, Discs poped out of trays)

Amazon is good, but I want my stuff now and I like to inspect something before I buy it, I hate not knowing if somethings wrong until it arives at my house

Best Buy! Are you kidding? The name is a complete misnomer. I have seen better prices at specialty stores. Most blu-ray movies are 50% less costly through Amazon.com or even target stores. They have one of the worst return policies in the U.S.

I'm not a huge Best Buy fan, but every once and a while they have a particular item less expensive than any where else. For example, I bought all three seasons of the original Star Trek TV show for $39.99 at BB. Amazon has had it for $56 I think, but not less than that. I would say that is the best Best Buy has done.

Now, I have Anchorman Pre-ordered for $24.99, plus tax, plus shipping brought it to $29.13. I called to cancel, but they said they has just shipped it. Anyway, if these prices are true, I can pick it up on Sunday for $19.99, plus get Blair Witch, Hard Candy and High Tension... all of which I currently have pre-ordered on Amazon for $13.99 each. I think they currently are $14.99 each.

I will simply refuse shippment on Anchorman which is being shipped to me by BB, and get it for cheaper at the store on Sunday. I hope to get there early and get them all, then go home and watch them.

The only thing that worries me is the truth of this and the acuracy of the prices. I called my local Best Buy and they knew nothing about it. When does the next weeks Ad come out? I would like some proof. Also, Blu-ray.com says prices will range from $7.99-$9.99, but someone said that should be to $19.99. Any thoughts? Does anyone know for sure that this is going to happen?

Thanx.

I strongly believe that Blair Witch on Bluray is a huge waste of polycarbonite. A very small fraction of the movie was photographed with film and the rest was taped using a video camera, way before the advent of high definition. Similarly, the Highlander series was released on bluray in 720p format because the digital effects were created in 480i and layered over film. They believed that releasing in 1080p would make the effects look even rougher.

My biggest gripe with Best Buy: Not enough discounted blu-ray titles (or a diverse selection, for that matter). 'Member the ol' days when a fella could browse and actually find something of value to purchase? Like I'm really gonna pay thirty bucks for a blu-ray that I can purchase online for a substantial discount.

And none of these titles appeal to me either. Next...

I'll be picking up a few for under $10. Stop whining about the exclusivity -- you didn't think they were coming out until October to begin with, so this is nothing but a bonus for people with the inclination to go to their local BB and pick these up for $10 or less. You can still wait until October to buy them from your preferred retailer or e-tailer; no one's forcing anything on you. Basically STFU and quit whining.

I pre-ordered Anchoman online, I called and asked about getting the lower cost which starts on Sunday. They said the only way I can get the lower price is if I return it for a full refund, then re-buy it in store for $19.99.

I'm going to refuse delivery of the one they mail me, then I'll get a complete refund for shipping and everything.

I'll be at my local Best Buy Sunday morning to pick up at least 5 of these movies. I hope they get enough. I really would like to snatch these up.

I have them all pre-ordered on Amazon, which still has them for $14.99. Anyone think Amazon will match the BB price? I'll keep my pre-orders if they lower all the prices to $9.99.

yeah, I was quite supprized that Best Buy would not adjust the price to match the store price starting on Sunday. They said my order hasn't shipped yet, however it has entered the shipping stage, so there was no why to change the price now. Also they told me that they do not price match or adjust the price after the original order has been placed.

I always buy on Amazon. There has to be a really good deal for me to go anywhere else. I may call Amazon and let them know of the Best Buy deal and see if they will price match. If not, I will cancel my Amazon orders and buy all of them from Best Buy.

Info? ...
From a manager first and then a customer assistant who looked at THIS (29th) Sunday's flyer.
All prices listed except High Tension in flyer. (that part is a ?) Deep Blue Sea 12.99 and Score 14.99
(That was read to me on the phone) So ...
Look at flyer on BB website at midnight.
Some stores will always jump the gun.

I pre-ordered all these movies for pickup at my local Best Buy. They are all $17.99. I called today and asked for them to look at tomorrows ad. She checked it out and there was nothing in it about any Blu-ray exclusive coming out tomorrw. She did confirm my movies are there ready to go, but I can't get them until tomorrow even though they sent me an e-mail saying I could pick them up today.

This is why I do not like Best Buy. If I call in or check online tomorrow and there is no sale, I will cancel my order with BB and keep my pre-order with Amazon. I was very excited when I saw this post. I would like all of these movies.

Hopefully this whole thing isn't made up by some kid in Texas who has Paint Shop Pro.

I can't say I'm a big fan of Best Buy generally. Once in a blue moon I buy some BDs from one of the stores in my area (a good example being the Vengeance Trilogy a few months ago, when they had it in stock exclusively and matched an internet preorder price). I prefer to order online, where the prices are more consistently less expensive than in physical stores and where a wider range of titles are usually in stock (even obscure or smaller films).

Anyway, the only title from this list that I'd truly be interested in is The Blair Witch Project, but I'm not in a hurry to buy it, especially before its reviews are out, and especially given the style in which it was made.

Body Heat 7.99
Deliverance 7.99
Capitalism: A Love Story 9.99
Moon 14.99
Shogun Assassin 14.99

No problems at my local store. They had them all out on a side/aisle rack. The only problem was that they were all out of Anchorman already when I got there, and that was my main reason for going. Oh well, I still hit up the 7.99 and 9.99 titles. Great prices.

The Best Buy in Springfield, MO (65804) sold them to me...but they were not "in the system" yet. She manually entered the UPC number and the right price came up, but the bar code scanner didn't work. Also of note, none of the titles were on the shelf at all....even though they did have the yellow "sale signs". They were all exclusively at the endcap display like the picture in the article.

Best Buy in Springfield, OH had them on the shelf but had issues during checkout. None of the new exclusives appeared to be in the system due to UPC errors popping up. After 10 minutes I was able to get them but the employees were clueless and the store manager was under the impression it had to do with them not supposing to be out until tuesday according to the website. Luckily I was the first one there, because it sounded like they were going to pull them until tuesday after they had rang me out. Little do they know that they sell stuff before street date all the time without any UPC errors.

Picked up:
Blair Witch Project 9.99
Hard Candy 9.99
High Tension 7.99
Deliverance 7.99
3:10 to Yuma 7.99
Trick 'r Treat 7.99

Visited a BB in NW San Antonio between noon and 1 pm. All titles were on display except Anchorman. After checking my BB app to insure this location had copies available I asked an employee to go to the back and retrieve a copy for me. She did. When she returned she told me they had forgotten to put them out for display. Quite a haul for me today: Anchorman: $19.99, Hard Candy: $9.99, Secretary: 9.99, Forbidden Kingdom: $7.99, Tears of the Sun: $9.99, Open Water: $7.99. With tax, $71.29, roughly $12 per disc.

I visited the Best Buy in North Irving around 1pm this after to pick up my instore pickup of Anchorman. I got to the customer service desk and she couldn't locate the item, so I went to look on the shelves and it wasn't there. So I asked an employee and it took 15mins before the came back with Anchorman which was placed on the new release area in the stock room. While finding it, I had canceled my instore pickup and then went to checkout to get the $19.99 sale price. There were no issues . Glad, I got it when I did apparently. =)

I'm one of the fortunate ones! Our local Best Buy here in Toledo, OH have all the titles available as advertised, and more... I've purchased everything except: The Blair Witch Project, Anchorman, and Secretary because I didn't want them. The cashier experienced brief difficulties when scanning the UPC codes during checkout, (probably due to incomplete processing in their system) but eventually, they were all approved.

Best Buy has posted low prices on more substantial titles for those without them, such as "3:10 to Yuma, " "Trick r Treat" and "The Wild Bunch" for $7.99, plus an array of other titles which rarely go that low on Amazon. $9.99 titles include "The Prestige," "Superbad" and "Starship Troopers." You may have to remind the checkout person that these titles/prices are online to be matched.

Wow. Thats crap. Their ad clearly says AVAILABLE SUNDAY. How are they gonna say "no you cant buy that yet" to the many customers that are coming in. Glad I got in there before they started not selling them anymore, eventhough I had to explain to the sales person that they were in fact on sale, and i had to get them to fish them out from the back. If a customer has to school your own employees on your own sales, that should tell you that your doing something WRONG!!! Best Buy, get your #$@! together. Sry. Im done.....

I had the same problem. They didn't have them out, they had to hunt for 30 minutes in the back looking for them. They they debated whether to sell them to me or not. Luckily I bought them online and they said I could pick them up on the 29th.

But that is pretty low for them to advertise movies coming out on Sunday, then when we get there, they say Tuesday.

This is why I shop on Amazon.

At Burbank store they did not have The Score or Deep Blue Sea out. He had to go back and get them but he did put them out. It seems that all the stores had them in the 'put out Tuesday' box even though they are to go on sale today, Sunday. The person who helped me did acknowledge the mistake though.

I really hope somewhere will have reviews of these Blu-rays soon. I probably won't be picking mine up until the weekend since I don't have a Best Buy near me (have to drive an hour). If any of them have any flaws I'd like to know about it before purchasing them.

MikeScott,

If you'll wait until next weekend to purchase, everything may be sold out, especially when brand new catalog title Blu-rays ( such as these) are selling at rock bottom prices. Best Buy doesn't have sales like this very often on their Blu-ray exclusives! So get them ASAP, before they increase up to their regular price.

All titles were at my local BB in Salisbury, Maryland except Deep Blue Sea. There was one showing in the system but they couldn't find it anywhere. Sold Out! Of all the titles, that one selling out first surprised me. The girl on the sales floor had to go in the back to get mine as well. I picked up High Tension, Hard Candy and 2001 Maniacs. When I got to the register they had trouble ringing them up also. Ya know this whole sale had to be one big clusterfuck for many BB stores today. Anyway, I'll be getting a copy of Deep Blue...as soon as more stock comes in. At these prices I could not be happier!!!!

I arrived about 1/2 hour after openning (Sunday morning Holmdel, NJ stiore) and found the end cap (same as pictured) almost empty. They did have Bad Lieutenant so I picked that up ($9.99). A salesgirl told me the other titles I wanted were out of stock and "WOULD NOT BE AVAILABLE ANY TIME SOON". Drove home and placed an online order for 'The Score', 'Anchorman' and 'Deep Blue Sea'. A half hour went by and I received an email...all titles were available for pick-up (???). Same store, same day, go figure.

Picked up Deep Blue Sea, Blair Witch, and Open Water 2-Pack this Sunday!

Quick rundown: DBS has the best PQ of the bunch - BW is FS and kind of blurry (expected given the source), as is the first OW. OW2 switches to 2.35:1 and trades the blur for grain. I was at least happy to see that although both films share a single platter, at least they used a 50GB disc. A quick rundown of the package contents reveals that most, if not all, of the supplements from the DVD editions of these movies have been carried over. A minor quibble with the Lionsgate menu system is that these films only come with one audio option apiece, yet it is a selection on the menu...why?

Also, @DetroitSportsFan: is that photo from the Ford Rd. & Greenfield BB? It looks EXACTLY like the one I got mine from, right down to the title arrangement!

Sorry to hear some stores are not selling this group until Tuesday... of the titles I purchased, my store only had the SKU's for Deep Blue Sea in the system, the other two they had to enter....

A girl was stocking the end cap as I arrived about 10:30AM.

I picked up:
Deep Blue Sea 12.99
Open Water/Open Water 2 $7.99
High Tension $7.99
Wonderland $7.99

Maybe the $7.99 price is because of Reward Zone? Hell of a deal!

Just a word of warning, Open Water doesn't look very good. I assume it was shot with SD cameras because it looks like 28 Days Later. Still an excellent film though.

Every single time Best Buy has some sort of special deal going on....most Best Buy employees are completely clueless. I just love reading all these stories of them talking down to us saying "movies only come out on Tuesdays" and then getting the flier shoved in their face that proves otherwise. I've heard that they all have little meetings before the store opens to build some sort of team spirit. You'd think they might mention "Oh yeah and we have a special blu-ray sale today for Lionsgate titles that Beth will be setting up on an endcap, so be aware.".....but no.

Does anyone know if the Wonderland blu-ray contains Wadd: The Life & Times of John C. Holmes (which was included on the original 2 Disc DVD edition)? When I went to Best Buy yesterday and looked at the blu-ray it was not advertised on the back, but then again, the original DVD did not advertise the documentary’s inclusion either. Thanks.

MikeScott,

Go to Best Buy's website homepage. Once it's uploaded, move your pointer over to Products. Scroll down, and click Movies, Music & Books.

You will see a field saying- "All categories"... Click the blue check mark, and scroll down to "title".

Type the name of the Blu-ray in the other field ( next to title) then another page will upload, showing the blu-ray, and the status of its availability.

Add the item to your cart.

In your cart where it said "Delivery Options" click "Pick Up", then click "Select Store".

On the next page, enter the zip code, or city, and state that is nearest to your residence.

The next page, it'll show a list of stores within that area that you've chosen. If the item is available at that location, it will have a green select button right next to that particular store. Click the select button to purchase. After the order is completed, Best Buy will notify the store's location to reserve the items at their customers service desk, then Best Buy will send you an email within 24hrs, when the order is ready to be picked up. Best Buy doesn't charge for shipping, and handling, when merchandise is being picked up at the store. The only additional charge you'll have to pay for is tax.

You have another option, you may want to consider and it's easier, since you have to drive there anyway! You can call the store direct, and give them the names of the Blu-rays that you want, and they'll check to see if they still have them in stock, and if so, they will hold them for you at customer service . They may only hold them for a certain amount of time.

Thanks. I did it. I ordered HIGH TENSION, SECRETARY, HARD CANDY, and OPEN WATER/OPEN WATER 2. I was a bit worried at first because it said they were "back-ordered" and wouldn't be available for 1-2 weeks, but then I remembered someone saying they did that and it said they weren't available but they received a notice that they could be picked up shortly after. And that's what happened to me. They are available for pick-up. Awesome. Now I don't have to worry about them not being there.

My copy of Deep Blue Sea came in pretty fast. When I went in to pick it up I noticed they had the endcap today. It wasn't there on Sunday when I went in but the girl I spoke to said Sunday night they had it up. She said it got wiped out. However, today it was completely restocked with a new shipment they received this morning. So those who are looking and finding titles they want are selling out, just keep an eye out. Your store will be restocking soon too.
