$24.99 SRP???

If so, great!


Also, can't believe they are waiting until October to release this. Waaaay to much time between theatrical release and home video.

They probably held on to it this long in hopes of having it be a gift for the holidays.

Not so fast!  It will be selling for "as low as" $24.99.  MSRP is still $39.99, and Amazon has it currently for $27.99 which I would expect to drop.  This is the first time I think I have seen a press release worded this way.  I enjoyed it (along with my daughter) so much that I am going to pre-order it off of Ron's post, and hope that it drops a bit.  Either way I want it on street date!

Yeah, I'm getting it on release date as well. I guess I assumed that any price that is mentioned in a press release is SRP. Like you stated, I've never seen them mention a street price before. Unless I've just missed it in the past.

I guess so although I've never understood how or why someone thinks an October release would make a good Christmas gift. December yes. But not October.

Ideally this will come out whenever Target starts offering tons of coupons for BDs again.  :)


To be honest, I am very much looking forward to revisiting this film in 2D.  3D was OK but a little dark and I don't focus well on fast action in 3D.
