Big Daddy, Mr. Deeds Blu-ray Exclusively at Best Buy

Posted October 11, 2010 04:40 AM by Juan Calonge

Sony PicturesThe Blu-ray release of Adam Sandler comedy Big Daddy, which had initially been announced by Sony Pictures Home Entertainment only to vanish from the studio's schedule (see Blu-ray.com, August 30 and September 21), will finally come out as planned on November 9, but with a catch: it will be a Best Buy exclusive. On that same date, BB will also offer another Sandler movie, Mr. Deeds.

Thanks to forum member "rednowgreen."

Bestbuy seems to be having some decent prices on the exclusives shortly after release date so i dont mind them.

How does this exclusive shit help the studio? Wouldn't they make more money if the movie was sold everywhere?
Can someone enlighten me please?

I like the exclusives, they always come with good extras ex. Anchorman. I dont see why people complain, they must not like going to BB :/

seigneur_rayden:

Depending on how popular the movie is, how much the studio expects to make/sell and other factors, BB offering a either a fixed amount per title sold goes back to Sony or a large lump sum to sell it exclusively, Sony could be making more than it being sold elsewhere.

If they're $9.99, I'll take both. As long as exclusives are worth it, keep 'em coming.

Will them being BB exclusives in the US effect the release of them in other countries?

Knock off this exclusive crap. When DVD is dead and Blu ray is 100% adopted then maybe you can pull out the exclusive gimmicks. Until then all it's doing is hurting the format.

I fail to see how 2 old catalog titles being retail exclusives is hurting the BD format... If you want to wait 1-2 months just to save $.90 on taxes go right ahead... It's not like these exclusives are overpriced where they're trying to make more $$ off people willing to pay a premium to own it a little early...

I'm assuming Canadian Best Buys, won't be getting these? I'd consider picking up mr Deeds, but I can wait untill it's worldwide

It really depends on the title.

I prefer to buy my movies off of Amazon and after the price has dipped a little. For titles that are exclusive it seems to take a few months more for any price drop beyond amazon's initial deal. Two titles that come to mind that I kept price tracker on were boogie nights and gremlins.

But if the price is debuted at the exclusive retailer relatively low, like the recent Secretary release for example, all bets are off.

I don't blame chinas or studios for wanting to make money, but don't blame me for wanting to pay less on catalog titles. $3-5 bucks might not seem like much money. But when you buy as many movies as I do, it adds up quickly.

White Chicks, now exclusively at Best Buy!

Seriously, exclusives are hardly new to Blu-ray. Retailers have been doing it with DVD practically since it started. It's just that usually it was exclusive content, not films. But this way is actually better because that content was NEVER released anywhere else, but these films WILL be available everywhere before too long.

My biggest gripe is pricing. I feel like an idiot for paying $37 yesterday for My Bloody Valentine 3D. By the way, the 3D works great at times, but most of the time it has horrifically bad ghosting. They must have screwed up the transfer somehow because there's no excuse for it.

Well my feeling is that a format that is trying to uproot the current dominant format shouldn't be limiting it's availablity to the masses. Blu-rays should be in every corner vending machine not just at one retailer.

For us that are already on board a catalog exclusive is no big deal but as a whole you're not going to attract newcomers with exclusivity.

Enough with this exclusive bullshit. Other countries get shafted. If you want to promote the blu-ray format you try to make it MORE accessible to people, not less with this exclusivity crap!

At my best buy blu-rays always have higher prices than amazon or walmart. I am dumbfounded when I see a shopper there holding or looking at a blu-ray set that is $50 more than it is on amazon. I say have you checked the price on amazon for that, it will save you some money. And I get a big thanks back. And almost every movie at my best buy is 50% higher or more. Does not make sense but is any other best buy like that? I do not buy movies there.. http://www.amazon.com/Battlestar-Galactica-Edward-James-Olmos/dp/B0036EH3U2/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1286830227&sr=8-1

The only time I enjoyed the bb exclusives was when deep blue sea was $12.99 and i sold a couple on ebay for more than $20. and the other exclusives were 7.99 that was nice. If these are reasonably priced like in the 7.99-10.99 range I will bite.
