It's in 640 theaters today, and drops to 450 on Thursday, going down to 122 on Friday (likely more will come in later today and beyond).

Of course I am going to get the disc as soon as possible. I love the movie, so I would buy a completely barebones disc of it.

That being said, it's too bad there isn't going to be a commentary tack. I know Jon M. Chu did one for Crazy Rich Asians so was hoping there would be one for this as well.

HBO Max had a couple of those featurettes up when the movie was on there. The ones I saw were good but very brief.

This would also have been a great opportunity to release the PBS documentary about the original Broadway production as a bonus feature. I'm not terribly surprised they're not doing that, but I would have welcomed its inclusion.

Was this ever in theatres?
Don't take this as an attack or anything because I don't intend it to be one. But did you not see any promotion for it on TV or anything? That seems to be the case based on your question.

I find it interesting that you didn't know it had a theatrical release. I am the exact target audience for this because I love the show and am part of the core fan base. So I knew about it. But I also felt like I saw promotion for it before the film came out. WB had high expectations for this and they didn't get the result they wanted. But if you didn't know that the movie was coming out, it feels like WB didn't do the job completely effectively because it was certainly WB's intention to make people aware when the movie came out that it was available in theaters. So if you didn't, that might be an area of concern for WB to work on in future with other films.

I felt like I saw a lot for it, but again, I'm very plugged into it. So I can't say for certain how it would be if I wasn't.

Such an amazing movie. watched it on HBO Max in 4k and it looked amazing. I can only imagine how much better it will look and sound on a 4K disc.

I'll definitely be adding it to my collection. I did not see it in the theater though I did know it was playing. I was super busy with reviewing and having dental work done (postponed for over a year due to the pandemic) when it was first released.

Someday when they write the history of the movie musical, this one will be considered a great film in the genre's latter period.

I won't hesitate to add this disc to my collection (if I did, my wife would clobber me).

is the cross next to digital code mean it's limited time only?

i dont remember WB blu-rays having this same issue, but for 4k releases WB is stripping out digital codes after the limited time code is gone. see prime example of Nolan's The Dark Knight trilogy. i remembered getting blu-ray years/decades afterwards and digital codes neve expire.

are ya'll not angry with this? none of the other studios afaik are doing this!

Yes, it stands for limited time. I've seen it on some Universal 4K releases too, but without the expiration date.

I could be very wrong, but I know at least some digital codes in the past have expired on me without being redeemed. They’ve always had an expiration date where the terms said they may not be good after X date.

Again, could be very wrong. I no longer have any physical discs to check.

That's true many of them did have an expiration date on the digital code card.

at Jason, the codes never expire. i generally purchase used, almost never new and have purchased UV/old school 2010 codes and they all work today in 2021. the expiration date is a "soft limit"

as far as i know this is a *NEW* practice starting with 4k discs and after HBO streaming platform debuted. blurays from 2010s that have codes from WB never expires and pressed batches still include codes unless the sku specifically says NO CODE.

which universal releases have code issues, i haven't seen that yet myself and just purchased a big batch of universal titles.

I already posted "The Sting" with the cross. Here is "Psycho".

Edit: After viewing with a magnifying glass those are asterisks next to the Digital Code on Universal releases.

Soft limit, okay. But they always had a date on them where they made not be valid after X date. They still may be valid after that date, but don’t always count on that. That’s my only point.

And thank you, Robert. I knew I wasn’t going insane. :)

the point isn't the expiration... the point is that new printings of disc physical media releases *NO LONGER INCLUDES* the slip in the first place. that's the shocking part, they used to add "expire" all the time... but it would work decades afterwards.

the STRIPPING OUT of the card is a process that is news to me. i haven't ever remembered that with older blu-ray releases even after multiple repressing from mfr plants they have always included codes it is almost a must.

it always worked for me, haven't encountered any that hasn't.
By the way, I have a stack of old digital code cards with an expiration date noted on each card.

Now, I'm confused by what you're talking about as how do you know there isn't a digital card?
