    No, it's not an import. Most domestic 3D releases are around $30 these days. That's what I've paid for the past few domestic titles, usually pre-ordered from Best Buy. List price is usually $35. Sometimes you can save a couple dollars if you find a sale, but I haven't seen too many recent domestic 3D releases for much less than around $25-30.

    The UK edition is currently £20. Subtracting VAT leaves around £16.67, plus £5 or so for shipping, puts you around £21-22 or $26-27, so it's not a huge difference. Though If you're willing to wait, the UK releases sometimes drop to around £10-12 after a few months. That would be a more significant difference.

    Thanks for researching that. I'll keep the U.S. order and grumble a little that the few enthusiasts that are left are paying a premium for titles. Hopefully there will be a bit of a price drop by release date.

    I thought the film was terrific. Saw it in IMAX 2D. Looking forward to seeing it in 3D.

    I shouldn’t have hesitated. It’s now temporarily unavailable.

    I’m Getting it from Best Buy. Only $2 more at $29.99 plus you get a DVD version of the film to give away to the kiddies. ;)

    Again -- beware this is the stripped version without the 2D disc. The full version has sold less than $25 a few times already since release. B&N had the std 3D title for $17-18 a few weeks ago and almost all these Warner 3D titles tend to drop to $20 fairly regularly after 6-9 months.

    I still have a lot of 3D titles that I bought and have not watched. I can wait for a better sale.

    I'm not one of those that go for the extras, just give me the movie. But, when I'm watching something with the wife, we'll do some of the extras, some of the time.

    I saw it 3D theatrically. Didn't like the movie but was impressed by the 3D!

    So...

    Just got an email from Amazon within the hour that SHAZAM 3D would be delayed till August.

    Should have known not to order anything Disney from Amazon.

    Fortunately, my local Best Buy had 1 more copy left in stock. They are holding it for pickup.

    Yep, Shazam! is DC/Warner. Disney hasn't done any domestic 3D in years.
