The Dark Knight, Spiderman and Men in Black 3 would like a word with you...

All those were sold out when I checked the NYC stores during release week.

There are a few MIB3 here and there.

My go to store had just 5 Zero today. I picked the last one off the shelf.

I grabbed the last Zero Dark steelbook that was on the shelf at my store at 1:30. Not saying that means it's rare but I'm surprised such a highly regarded movie was stocked at the same level as the last Resident Evil.

All the stores I went to sold out of Zero Dark Thirty. This is not very typical for my area. There's usually at least 8+ copies of whatever I'm trying to get.

Was able to order one through in-store pickup. Hopefully I don't get a dented one...

My store was sold out of their ZDT steelbooks 30 minutes after opening. The guy said they only had like eight.

Still have tons of Amazing Spider-Man steelbooks sitting around, though I guess $35 is a high price point.

Down to one MIB3 steelbook too.

Not a single Zero Dark Thirty available in any of the ME or NH Best Buy stores as far as I can tell. Very odd as I don't live in a high volume area and have never had trouble getting BB steelbooks before. I didn't go until almost 5PM today because of a snow storm and all they had were 3 standard blu-ray copies of Zero Dark Thirty.

Not sure if they got cleaned out or just didn't get many.

Regardless no steel book for me unless they restock

I would be shocked if they keep the stock this low but if they do oh well. I didn't enjoy the movie that much so I don't really care.

I've had good success making in-store pickup orders on the day of release, as I've had too many issues with single-item orders for steelbooks not getting savaged in shipment. So far, no issues.

The steelbook for Salt was pretty low volume, as they didn't have any past release week or even release day. Might be the case here as well. There's been a couple that were low volume for release and no real restocks. I think Fast Five and Snow White & The Huntsman were in that category for the last number of them that have come out.

Not a single Best Buy near me has the Zero Dark Thirty steelbook in stock. I wasn't able to go till today so I'm hoping for a possible restock. I know it's a stretch but does anyone have a Best Buy that still has it in stock and would be willing to pick up a copy for me?

Someone on bluray.com said that they were told stores are already deleting sku from system so that means no restock. (not totally confirmed news), so if people want les mes they may want to get there early or order it between now and 10 am.

That's right Les Mis comes out tomorrow right?

I'll have to get out early and pick up extras to trade for Zero Dark Thirty. That or if someone sees a Zero Dark Thirty and would be willing to pick it up tomorrow I"d be more then happy to pay for it + shipping + a few dollars extra.

Good luck finding 'em tomorrow. It's been really difficult to tell what will be easy to find in the past year (Sherlock Holmes 2, Green Lantern (1st release), Batman: TDKR) and what isn't (RE, Snow White, Zero Dark Thirty)

If I would have known I would have picked up extra copies, last time I did that for RE and nobody seemed interested till a month later after I had already returned them. lol... Well I did post the store pick up option for ZDT but so much good that did. >_<

It's alright I should have asked earlier. I was really really surprised that no stores in Maine or NH should inventory Tuesday late afternoon.

Either they didn't get many or got cleaned out. In fact the one BB I checked only had 2 or 3 of the standard blu-rays.

I'm going to do some traveling this weekend so hopefully they have a lone one that isn't getting picked up by the computers (I think they have to have three to show inventory). If not I'll just buy one on eBay or from a 3rd party hopefully at a reasonable price.

If anyone is really concerned about picking up Les Mis, do an in-store pickup order for it tomorrow morning before the store opens.

Routinely, if I place an in-store pickup order for an item before the store opens (7-8AM), usually I'll have a picked notification before the store opens. Sometimes, it doesn't happen that way, though most of the time for my local store, they do an in-store pickup order before the store opens.

It'll probably be online for in-store pick when the site shifts over to the next day, so sometime between midnight and 2AM CT.

SKU # for the ZDT steel is 8090118 and the Les Mis steel is 8419041.

I checked really quickly using zip codes all up and down the east coast and I can't find a single store that has ZDT available for in-store pick up (it is sold out for shipping).

That is insane!

Salt was the same way when it came out, if you didn't order it on day of release, you didn't get the steelbook. When I pre-ordered it, the store picked the non-steelbook version and I had to go through three different stores to find one that had it. Some of the BB steelbooks don't last though the week for being around. And after I had three Snow White steelbooks get destroyed in shipment, I never ordered one online that wasn't in-store pickup.

It opened up for all my three local store options, so in-store pickup order placed. Hopefully will get something by store open that they've picked it.

I guess I've been spoiled. I always go release day but I've never had a problem with availability and I live in small market. In the last year snow white and the latest RE were the most scarce but even the afternoon of release day they had 3-4 available and they didn't sell through those until later in the week.

I just couldn't believe it when Tuesday evening I checked all stores within 300 miles and not a single copy available for pickup. I was going to do in-store too but the last time I did they stuck tape on the wrapping and ripped the shrink wrap taking it off. I figured with the snow storm foot traffic would be low and I could walk in and pick one up.

Live & Learn. I think the difference though is when they have a steelbook and it is priced at or just above the price of the standard blu-ray combo they sell through much faster.

Editions like Amazing Spiderman that are $28+ on launch (and never dip deeper) tend to hang around longer.

It's possible. About a week ago, they had the steelbook version listed at $22.99, and a different bluray version listed at $19.99. Then they made the steelbook unavailable for purchase. Then about a day later, they dropped the price of the steelbook version to $19.99. More days pass, and now the non-steelbook version is no longer listed. I wish I saved the SKU though.

Only reason I've been checking is because the GF wants it day 1. I'm not even sure she knows it's coming out tomorrow (today for non-PDT/Alaska/Hawaii people). I figured I'd better at least get a steelbook for this if I'm buying it day 1, since Zero Dark 30 disappeared so fast.
