    According to this story at USA Today of the 165 titles that were scheduled to be released on Tuesday 12/27 (the "normal" new release day), 33 were bumped up to Monday 12/26 to take advantage of the heavy traffic in stores during the post-Christmas sales and returns time. Does anyone know exactly which titles got moved up? Toy Story 2 is a definite buy for me.

    The sole reason is to cash in on the day after Christmas rush at stores. [​IMG]

    I believe The Shield: Season 4 was also bumped up to December 26.

    Is Mary Shelley's Frankenstein from that set a widescreen version? I've had a hard time coming across this film in its OAR for some reason. I don't have Dracula either, so this would be a definite buy for me.

    I wonder how many stores will skip the 12/26 release date after years of always doing new releases on Tuesday?

    ^ All I gotta say is that the stores in my neck of the woods better stick to that 12/16 street date for seaQuest. That is the only thing I'm getting this week and I plan on making it halfway through the season before Monday is over.

    Brett,

    I have a copy of the widescreen/fullscreen flipper of MS's Frankenstein available if you still need it. Never been watched. I impulse-bought it about 4 months ago but I'm trying to thin my collection out now.
