It seems like everyone is town has snatched up this flick. I've been to 3 local Best Buys, 3 Circuit City's and J&R Music World. None at all. Stupid me, I was at Best Buy on Wednesday and there was a whole stack of them there, but I didn't feel like waiting on line to pay, so I figured I would go back later in the week. Well, they are all gone now. Yesterday, I asked one of the clerks if they had them in the back at the Best Buy close to me, and she said "What's so great about this movie? So many guys keep asking for blu-ray Crank. Is it that good?" I got a weird look from this older guy nearby, I think he thought I asked her for crack.



Don't really want to order online, but looks like I have no choice.

DVD Planet is a joke... their super store is just down the street. The prices you see online isn't what they are in the store. They won't even price match their own website. They will only price match ad prices of movies. That store is a joke... I will never shop there again... people are rude and slow to help

It's a Lionsgate title (Canadian studio) and it isn't anywhere to be found in Canada yet! Doh!


Good thing is, the price will be great. LGF titles seem to SRP par here. And usually, BB has the par price of Amazon.com.


e.g. BB Canada shows Crank will be CDN$26.95.

Sold out AND barely sells?


I need to start collecting the doublethink.

Selling 4 copies of a movie is not very hard to do. I would imagine even a DVD of Vanilla Ice would sell 4 DVDs.


So is HD-DVD a success now since all new releases are constantly sold out at Best Buy? You act like they stocked 30+ copies.

It went to 78 on Amazon.com before selling out. I presume that is a heck of a lot more than 30 copies. 300? 3000?


I usually see about dozen copies of each title initially at my local BB. I have no reason to believe that one store in Toronto is special.

What backwater hick town do you live in? Every store in my area that I know of gets at least 10-15 copies on release day. I know for a fact that most if not all of the new Blu-rays sell out on the first day. Most of the time you have to wait till the second shipment comes in to get the movie you want.

On Wednesday, there was a stack of Crank at the Best Buy in Noho, Manhattan. I'd say at least 10. So maybe the amount or lackthereof depends on your region.

Out of curiosity, do you see PS/3 in stock there?


It is clear there are some definite regional biases occuring. Can anyone in Chicago estimate the usual new stocking count of HD titles?
