Note that copies of either title purchased at Walmart may or may not have the $10 MIR form inside--my copy of Con Air didn't have it.
Also if the retailer will scan the coupon for you it doesn't matter if the title is Disney or not. Worked with Casino Royale last week.
Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong here, but technically the $5 Disney coupon cannot (is not supposed to) be used on non-Disney titles like Casino Royale--not unless Disney recently bought Columbia Pictures and I just didn't hear about it. The reason why people were able to successfully redeem the $5 Disney coupon on CR (and other non-Disney titles) at TRU was because CR was among the various titles included in the TRU B1G1 offer that was going on last week; undoubtedly, many customers were including a Disney title as part of their B1G1 purchase...so when they attempted to redeem their two Disney coupons, I suspect more than a few cashiers weren't really paying close attention as to whether both titles were Disney ones--an oversight that is easily understandable if you're just trying to close out the transaction as quickly as possible.
As it turns out, the TRU POS (point of sale) system apparently isn't smart enough to reject redemption of a coupon when scanned if it doesn't have a record of a qualifying purchase; this, combined w/ the lax enforcement on the cashier's part of verifying coupon redemption is what allowed folks to use the $5 Disney coupon on CR. Now, it is entirely possible that the Walmart POS system is equally as dumb...this making it possible for the coupon to be successfully scanned/accepted on a non-Disney title at Walmart. I won't discuss the morality of attempting to redeem a Disney coupon on a non-Disney title just because it scans successfully regardless so I'll just conclude by saying that hey, more power to you for having done so.
