The Disclaimer
Standard disclaimer: All prices are taken from the websites of each chain, or from their printed Sunday advertisements. All prices are subject to change by each chain. Prices and inventory in-store may or may not match the website price.

"LP" in the RoundUp table means a store’s Sunday flyer says "Low Price". That means I could not locate a definite price for the item, and the ad is all I have to go on. Retailers use these phrases in advertisements so that they do not violate MAP (Minimum Advertised Price) agreements with the studios. Doing so can cost them thousands or even millions of dollars in co-op advertising funds.

I, obviously, cannot include EVERY title released in a given week in the RoundUp. The titles included are those that I am interested in...as well as those which I consider will be of interest to a majority of consumers (and sometimes I’ll miss one!). I don't get paid for this, and I don't have the time to list every DVD. So, please don't complain! If there is a title not included in the RoundUp that you want to see, just look it up yourself, and be nice enough to post and share the results with everyone!

Note that I cannot include Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club prices in the RoundUp. They set prices at individual stores based on nearby competition, so there is no way I can say here what price you'll find at YOUR local Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club location. And, as always, Circuit City does not guarantee their sale prices in Hawaii.

Would love to get info on the Casino Royale DE @ Target. For example, how long is the "Making of" featurette...and is that the only thing on the 3rd disc? If so, I doubt it's worth the extra $9 on top of the CC price. And Wal-Mart will likely be even cheaper than CC.

Casino Royale is my "must have" for this week. I missed it in the theater and want to watch it immediately.

I already have Casino Royale ordered, and may consider picking up The Holiday, although it is kind of pricey on Blu-Ray...

I was thinking the same thing when i saw it on the grid,if i can find it
(i am usually a BestBuy shopper)i'll type the details to you here.

Its a must have for me as well,i saw it at the movies and i loved it,this was the James Bond that Ian Fleming was trying to envision when he was writing the novels.

Yeah, I'd like to know more about Target's exclusive version of "Casino Royale," too. That CC price is hard to resist, but I have a Target gift card I've been saving, so I'll probably take the plunge.

Because of the large 007 geek following (of which I am proudly a member), I'm concerned that the Target exclusive edition could be hard to come by (at least for some of us) if you don't go on Tuesday, a la "Munich." (I know the two-disc "Munich" wasn't a store exclusive, but it was a pain in the butt for a lot of people to track down.)

Hopefully, I'm wrong. I'll probably walk into Target on Tuesday and trip over a huge pile of the exclusive sets.

Anybody have details?
I loves me some zombies.

Target tends to have plenty of their exclusive editions. I bought the Target editions of Cars and The Departed late in release week, and there were still tons of copies available.

I'd be surprised based on the image of the Target exclusive in their ad if it even really includes a bonus DVD. It's hard to make out the exact text on the top of the packaging, but the image on the right is of the "Bond on Set" book. Makes me wonder if instead of an "exclusive DVD" it includes a minitiarized version of the "Bond on Set" book.

To me, it looks like the top of the pacakge says "2 Disc Widescreen Limited Edition Casino Royale DVD" and underneath it looks to say something like "Exclusive Bond on Set Book".

Maybe there is a bonus DVD in there, but based on that picture, I wouldn't be expecting it...

I wish I was near YOUR Wal-Mart. When I lived near one, I always had to have them price match to CC and BB to get a deal on a new release. The one that was near my college town was much better at undercutting the competition's price.

For a 2-disc set that CC price is irresistable. Just wish they had a BR deal too. Now I just have to hope my rewards coupons come this week.

I think Brandon is correct regarding Casino Royale at Target. It appears to be the same as http://www.hmv.co.uk....;-1&sku=619689 the HMV UK exclusive. I stopped at Target this morning, but none of my Entertainment Department "connections" was working today. I'll get more info on CR and Sublime and post it on Monday.

Casino Royale, probably the basic 2 disc edition. You're not going to find a better price than $13.99. I'm game.

Thanks Mike and Patrick.

Mike - a belated Happy Birthday to you!

In case your Sunday paper does not carry the Parade Magazine insert, be sure to check it out online. The cover story is an interview and photo shoot with Scarlett Johansson. You can read the article here:

And, don't miss the Scarlett Johansson Slideshow (right-hand side of the page in the above link).

It was very nice of Parade Magazine to publish this Scarlett Johansson interview and photo shoot to coincide with your birthday. Posted Image

Thanks, fellas! I guess the guys in charge of the Target flyers really dropped the ball on that one. Looks to me like the bonus is going to be a book. Off to CC (or Wal-Mart) for me! Posted Image

As is always the case. it all depends upon circumstances and individuals. I've been in my closest Wal-Mart store (I'm surrounded by several) on Tuesday...and have seen the media manager with the various flyers in-hand and marking the week's big releases below the lowest advertised price.

Once that manager gets transferred to a different store, I'll probably be making sure I've got the appropriate flyers tucked in my pocket and request a price match! Posted Image
