'Boss Baby' Brings Goodies25 Jul, 2017 By: John Latchem
Fox's July 25 home video release of DreamWorks' The Boss Baby was accompanied by several retailer exclusives.
Walmart offered exclusive box art with the Blu-ray combo pack and 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray combo pack versions, and offered 20 minutes of extras via the Vudu streaming service.
Target offered a gift set that included the Blu-ray combo pack with an exclusive talking keychain that says six movie quotes.
Best Buy offered a Boss Baby lunchbox for $4.99 with the purchase of the film or another qualifying title.
Paramount's Ghost in the Shell also came with some exclusives. Target offered exclusive Blu-ray box art and 30 minutes of exclusive extras. Best Buy offered Steelbook packaging with the Blu-ray and UHD versions.
Again, some DVD versions of new releases were hard to come by at brick-and-mortar stores, With Warner's Unforgettable and Fox's Gifted being Blu-ray only at Best Buy locations. Amazon's DVD of Unforgettable was available only through third-party Marketplace sellers upon its debut.
Amazon also seems to have shut down preorders on several Disney titles, including Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales and Rebels: The Complete Season Three.
