'Pete's Dragon,' 'BFG' Unleashed at Retail After Busy Shopping Weekend29 Nov, 2016 By: John Latchem
Retailers didn't give much attention to the new releases Nov. 29 in light of lingering traces of the busy post-Thanksgiving shopping weekend.
Just about the only promotion among the new titles came at Target, which offered $5 off the purchase of both Disney's Pete's Dragon and The BFG on disc.
Target, like most of the big retailers, had many displays tailored to deep-discounted catalog titles.
Best Buy offered buy-one-get-one-free deals from a selection of Sony Pictures titles. Best Buy also touted 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray deals, with $10 off the purchase of two, and $20 off the purchase of three.
Preorders with Blu-ray Steelbooks at Best Buy include Warner's Suicide Squad and Sony Pictures' The Magnificent Seven.
Walmart had the exclusive DVD of National Geographic's No Man Left Behind at $9.96.
