Best Buy Shoppers Get A Sneak Peek At 'Scorpion King'11 Apr, 2002 By: Jessica Wolf
Universal's Mummy prequel, The Scorpion King, starring wrestling superstar "The Rock," doesn't hit theaters until this weekend, but special features fodder for the film's DVD release was already making its way into fans' hands last week.
Best Buy is offering an exclusive Scorpion King bonus disc with some Universal titles. Along with the purchase of Mummy Collection DVD set — which includes a copy of The Mummy and The Mummy Returns in keepsake packaging — Best Buy shoppers get a bonus disc with cast and filmmaker interviews, behind-the-scenes and "making-of" footage from The Scorpion King, and a Godsmack music video. The extra disc, designed with Scorpion King art, was included in shrink-wrapping on the back of the Mummy Collection, released last week. The deal also extends to other Universal titles: The Fast and the Furious, American Pie, American Pie 2 and the American Pie DVD two-pack. At a Southern California Best Buy last week, all these were stocked on a Mummy Collection merchandiser and The Scorpion King bonus disc was shrink-wrapped on the back of each release. Signs on the display touted the disc as available only at Best Buy locations. Universal confirmed the deal.
