Sandwiched between the disc debuts of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 2 and Star Wars: The Force Awakens, March 29 proved to be a rather slow week for new home video releases. Still Anchor Bay's The Hateful Eight was available with a couple of exclusive retail editions.
The latest Quentin Tarantino film was available at Best Buy in an exclusive steelbook edition.
Target offered the Western with collectible lenticular packaging and an exclusive behind-the-scenes featurette.
Speaking of "Star Wars," Target is particularly ready for the April 5 DVD and Blu-ray arrival of The Force Awakens. Many Target stores have "Star Wars" merchandise displays set up next to the new-release section, as well as other decorations around the store, such as life-size Stormtrooper decals greeting guests at the front doors.
