Checking In With 'Hotel Transylvania 2' Exclusives12 Jan, 2016 By: John Latchem
The Jan. 12 new releases offered plenty of retail exclusives for consumers, most notably with Sony Pictures' Hotel Transylvania 2 and Universal's Mr. Robot: Season 1.
For Hotel Transylvania 2, Best Buy offered a pack on Squishy Blobby toy with the film's Blu-ray and 3D Blu-ray combo packs. Best Buy also offered a $5 discount with the puchase of both "Hotel Transylvania" movies (with the Blu-ray combo pack of the first one for $14.99).
Target offered the BLu-ray combo pack of Hotel Transylvania 2 with glow-in-the-dark stickers, and gave free popcorn and a medium soda at the Target café with the purchase of any version of the film on disc.
Walmart had a Hotel Transylvania 2 Blu-ray combo pack gift set with a lunch box.
Target's version of the "Mr. Robot" DVD included 20 minutes of exclusive bonus material, while Best Buy offered the Blu-ray of the show with a free decal.
Paramount's Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension didn't seem to be available at Target, with the horror sequel not even showing up on the chain's website on its first day of availability.
Also interesting, Amazon.com didn't seem to have any copies of Fox's The Martian on DVD, referring instead to Amazon Marketplace sellers. Amazon does have the 4K UHD version of The Martian listed for a March 1 release.
