Geostorm 3D

Saw the preview for this at Blade Runner and I sorta like disaster movies but read this was more of a disaster of a movie, lol, oh well, want to see it anyway! So this was a Best Buy exclusive and it must have been sold out before release date in US as it was showing sold out on day of release. Looks like the resellers have them on eBay for 40.00. The movie got unfavorable reviews so not spending that much.

There's a steelbook edition for 45.00 from the seller in Texas but which is a preorder, I just can't bring myself to spend that much on this movie. I just did the preorder for the UK version which is releasing Feb 19th. It said region free, blu-ray.com doesn't have info on it yet. Anyway I got it for £16.66, ordered on Fri. but now it shows £19.99 so I don't know whats going on with the price, guess they decided to raise the preorder price. Listing shows region free on Amazon, but not confirmed yet.

£16.66 is the price after the hidden Value Added Tax has been removed for foreign orders. This only happens when you go through the checkout process. Your cart will show the price with VAT of £19.99.

It is also available on amazon.ca (Canada).

Ah, that clears that up so it's only 19.99 if ordering in UK. So 16.66 pounds comes to about $23.00 before shipping cost.

I ordered my copy of Geostorm 3D from Amazon a while back. I do believe it is still onsite for ordering, however, when checking on the status of my order it is telling me that they do not have a release date for my 3D copy yet and would keep me updated when available. I know Geostorm has already been released in the US and that Best Buy customers have already received their 3d copies. Has anyone else ordered thru Amazon for this item? I am thinking about canceling this order and reordering thru Amazon UK even though the release date is not untll Feb 13th I believe.

Don't know. When I go on there now (and when I checked when I ordered mine) it did not show available. I see a listing for it now but it's not fulfilled by Amazon as well as more expensive than Amazon UK. Blu-ray.com has it as a BB exclusive in US. Releases Feb 19th in UK.

UPDATE: I just contacted Amazon via CHAT about my order and was told my order (Geostorm 3d) and was informed that Amazon does NOT have this product and has NO information as to when it will be delivered..(I am assuming, if at all). This is the second order from Amazon with respect to 3d movies that has been messed up..Just Sayin!

BBs in my area in Michigan only show the 2D bluray and DVD available. The 3D was removed. It used to show up as out-of-stock, now doesn't show at all.

Yeah, I checked on release date, same day as Blade Runner and it was showing sold out then. I refuse to pay double the price for it on eBay so I just preordered it from Amazon UK.

Metacritic rates this movie 21. Tell me again why you want this. Perhaps that you cannot get Geostorm is a good thing.

Read my first post. If I couldn't get the 3D at all I would still watch it via Netflix in 2D.

Huh, this was easily available in Canada and not exclusive - best buy, Walmart, and others have it in generous quantities. I'd guess amazon.ca would have it as well.
