Redbox should be embarrassed by this. I'm happy they still continue to stock most major new releases on bluray (contra my earlier false alarm when that appeared to be ending). However to not stock the freaking BEST PICTURE WINNER on bluray when it comes out doesn't make any sense to me whatsoever.

Art House flick. Even though it won an award it's still considered art house and they are afraid to sink too much money into art house. And there are a lot of people who didn't like the film.

"If you build it they will come.." Ok, what is this "It" you speak of and who, are they???! Do I want to know?...

At about $100,000,000 worldwide boxoffice .. ?? "Boyhood" did less than half of that yet the BD was stocked .. even "Vice" .. a junk film which I believe went straight to video gets BD stocked ..


There are always people that don't like a film ..

It's available on Netflix for immediate shipment. I'm sure redbox looked at it, and if they thought it would be profitable they would have stocked it but sitting side by side with vice, i'd guess most people would choose vice before birdman.

It's next up in my Netflix queue after I return my current rentals so I'll see how it is shortly

Keaton delivers a line in "Birdman" pretty much to that effect .. not specifically toward "Vice" .. but to viewers tastes in general ..


I spaced out getting the BD of "Birdman" in my NF Q .. I dropped down to the one out plan a while back since it just did not seem much worthwhile material was coming out .. as well as the mailing slowdown which added an extra day or two shipping time for me .. I figured I'd make it up with RB occasionally .. oh. well .. the best laid plans and all that ..

anyone else having trouble finding Age of Ultron (Blu-Ray)?...doesn't seem to be available in my area or any other zip code I enter...seems like new Marvel releases always have this issue on Redbox...usually takes a few days to a week for it to show up

I've had that problem before at my one very isolated RedBox, but the new Avengers was available day 1 (yesterday) here.

In fact, I found a trick for reserving: it was not showing up on the main page first thing yesterday but could be found with a search and reserved. I'm not sure what causes the delay in being displayed. It's the featured title now. All checked out until I return mine.

Sicario from Redbox and no Atmos or Dolby True HD

Picked up Sicario from Redbox and no Atmos or Dolby True HD. Only DD. Redbox should note somewhere when they do this. This is annoying to say the least.

Blame Lionsgate, this is standard practice for their rentals.

I'm a bit of a Redbox fan every now and then (well, when they text me a free code, heh!), although I must say I have no idea how for much longer they can stay in business given the Internet, streaming, easy downloads a few clicks away, etc.

On Sicario, wow, that was some ice cold killa no-hold barred stuff right here... Dang... Heck of a movie!
