Though it doesn't come out till Tuesday officially, I'd thought sure I'd see my posts about the quality by now.

Last I looked, estimated arrival for me is 11/14. I cancelled WHV and went with zon for the savings, but if I knew for a fact I would have to wait significantly longer, I'm not sure what I would have done.

Any idea if it retail in a B&M for this cheap or if I should just order it off Amazon?

What are the chances of Warner actually getting me this disc on tuesday next week? Do they usually send out a tracking number?

I can never do anything with upconversion with the SD DVDs to make em look very good. The PS3 and BD30 handle lots of other movies fairly well, not these. I don't own the SD DVD box, I was just renting individual discs from time to time.

Looking forward to this on BD! Thanks.

The thing with Warner - they tend to wait until the last minute - but most of their stuff is shipped Next Day for some reason. So it usually gets here by street date - and you can get a tracking no. from their myexpresscheckout site. Looking forward to getting my BoB from them, too.

They shipped mine yesterday with next day shipping. Its out for delivery right now. Mind you, I emailed them yesterday to cancel when I found out it was around $5 cheaper at Best Buy. That may have encouraged them to ship my order!

Thanks for the heads-up - mine has shipped from them, too - along with my JFK. Anyone wondering about their Warner Store order can check the status here:

I've never heard of Amazon ever shipping out an item early enough that it arrives before the street-date. I'm sure, as is the case with many things, there have been exceptioins, though.

I just recently moved from one part of Rhode Island to another, and now my movies arrive on the Tuesday release date... whereas before, I was receiving them the day after (Wednesday) the release date. My pre-orders have always shipped out on a Monday, though.

I'm just worried about next Tuesday being a holiday in the USA that UPS might not ship on that day.

Got mine as well, actually forgot I had ordered it. I pre-ordered it with The Dark Knight when the 30% off was still going. Had a sliver of hope The Dark Knight would be in there too, but I suppose they've probably barely started printing those disks. Anyway, that would be awesome if we can get TDK a week early too!

For those of you getting it early from WHV, did you get a shipping email confirmation? On my last order I got shipping confirmation before it left, but I haven't gotten anything on this one yet.

No notice whats so ever...UPS left it at my front door...I wish they would at least let us know ahead of time when they would ship.
