    If you go to DVD Empire, they have all three movies listed for pre-order. In addition, they've listed the specs for all three movies (although I believe that Beverly Hills Cop II was in 2.35, not 1.85). Anyway, it looks as though the first movie is getting a nice treatment (commentary and all that), and even the two sequels are getting a few interesting things (similar to Wayne's World and Wayne's World 2). Oh, and it looks like the prices will be quite nice: $19.99 for each. Very nice. Thank you Paramount.

    $19.99 doesn't sound like Paramount to me! Has Paramount actually made any announcements regarding these discs? I love the Beverly Hills Cop, movies, and can't wait, but I don't wanna get my hopes up, like I've done so many times with the BTTFs. Anyways, if it is true, it sounds like they'll all be very nice.

    That's the MSRP for each dvd and the box set. The actual preorder price from DVD Empire for the seperate dvds is $16.24 and the box set is 59.98 I think Paramount is starting to listen to their consumers and are adjusting their price structure down. Sure, it's not exactly like Warner but it's a start!
    I do have one point of contention with DVD Empire why is it cheaper to buy the three seperate dvds than the box set? That doesn't make sense to me!

    When these were announced, I thought that I'd probably pick them up, but with the lower price (thanks Paramount!) they will definately be in my collection. On "must have" titles, price isn't an issue, but for a lot of "maybe" movies, it's a big factor.

    quote: Not necessarily. According to a post at DVDTalk, all 3 Bad News Bear films are going to retail for $29.99 each (without even any trailers) when they're released in early February.[/quote]
    First off, I said I think Paramount is starting to listen which implies it's a beginning. Secondly, a post on DVDTalk doesn't make the $29.99 for each Bad News Bear dvd a reality. I'll wait for a more official announcement!
    I just checked with Lasersedge website which has the "Bad News Bears" dvds priced the same as the "Beverly Hills Cop" dvds. Which is 18.94, just a little under 25% off a MSRP of 24.99

    For the record, the BH Cop movies and Bad News Bears movies are $24.99 SRP.
