    I heard nothing about it at BB or CC. Anyone know if it was supposed to come out today? I would hate to go all the way to one of these stores for them not to have it. Any help wouldbe great. Thanks

    Got mine also. Nice suprise to see a different THX trailer on it. This one is, I think, the Broadway THX trailer. On Speed 2, they put the THX-TEX 2 trailer (same one found on the Toy Story 2).

    What happened? I was expecting it yesterday, but all retailers are showing it for the 30th... I'm usually right on top of street date changes. www.thedigitalbits.com still has it listed for the 23rd in their Cover Art section.
    Weird.
    When was the date changed and what site mentioned this?
    Thanks,
    Chris.

    I ordered the Speed Box Set from a certain on-line site and they shipped it yesterday...a full week before release date[​IMG] I've also seen Speed:5 Star and the Speed Box Set on the shelves of a certain B&M retailer for some time know. It appears there may have been some confusion as to whether the street date was July 23th or July 30th.

    I saw this set in one of our most hated retailers like about a week ago. I didn't even think about picking it up since I never buy dvds from them so I let that one slip through my hands.

    If it is a hated retailer, why go there?
    I bought this today from an overpriced retailer, but they are bad about street violations, so I pay a little extra for the early flix.

    Ken, Speed did come out a long time ago, nonanamorphic, barebones.
    We're talking about the brand new Speed 5 Star DVD 2 disc... very cool!

    Not officially out until next week. I snagged a copy as well, from a major (and I mean one of the top) video store chains.
    Heh, too bad I don't have time to watch it for a while. Maybe I'll check it out this weeked. I must hear the DTS mix [​IMG]
