I've been wondering the same thing I want POTC now, and Hellboy.


I want the Matrix last week. But "a late train" is a late train. And according to UPS you cant pick up your package on a saturday. "You're only a day awaay."

Wow! I signed up for prime today and choose one day shipping, that could mean I get the Ultimate Matrix Collection on Tuesday. That would be killer.

With Amazon Prime and it's free 2 day shipping nearly all of my preorders ship on the Monday prior to the street date. So I'll be getting both Pirates, Complete Matrix, Flags Of Our Fathers, Letters From Iwo Jima on Wednesday. I don't mind a day late since I rarely watch movies during the week anyway.

I'm a Prime member and sometimes I get new releases on Tuesday, I did with The Road Warrior, other titles such as Casino Royale came on Wednesday. I beleive it comes down to which shipping facility has the title.

Monday usually BUT they end up shipping 2 day air even if you request 1 day.


They've done it 2 weeks in a row and I've since moved all my preorders elsewhere.

I started to buy my movies on Buy.com because they ship new releases out on Firday and they make it to me by Tuesday with the cheap 5-9 day shipping! It works great



Yes I don't like to wait until Wednesday to get them so unless it's not a new release no more amazon for me.

Im a prime member and every preorder I have done, i have always had it waiting on me when I got home on Tuesday. Thats with the free 2 day shipping. I have always wondered if I paid the extra 4 bucks for overnight, would I get it Monday? I guess its worth an experiment for 4 bucks. Even though getting the movie a day before it somes out is not a big deal to me.

You'll still get it on Tuesday since they don't ship them until Monday. I receive 90% of my preorders on Tuesday. They are all shipped on Monday.

Have you checked the tracking details on the shipment? If it shows entering the shipping system on Friday when you normally get it Tuesday with 2-day service, then I would say you have a shot.


But it's more likely the carrier is getting it earlier in the day Monday, in time to get it to you Tuesday.

i'm waiting on them to ship out freedom writers. i was at my best buy yesterday and they had it on the shelves to buy. i almost bought it but it was 4 dollars (before tax) more than amazon with 2 day shipping so i put it back. i can wait a little longer since i've already seen the movie.

Back in the days[5-7 years ago] most etailers shipped those so you should get it on the actual release date/day[Tuesday]. It seems Amazon dropped that habit.

I have been buying a lot from Amazon.com lately as a prime member; they all seem to ship on Monday and I get them Tues or Wed via 2 day shipping.

Both Matrix & POTC are showing May 24th as my delivery estimate from Amazon (Prime, 2 day free shipping). I seldom watch movies before Friday, so no problem. Looks like it's going to be a fun Memorial Day weekend!

Not always, but I usually see my new releases ship on Monday and arrive on Tuesday. It's fairly consistent. Keep in mind, I just use Amazon Prime's free 2-day and still get 1-day more often than not.


I like it.
