If you select "Join the Club" found in top right corner of page and enter your email address you are sent a one time use code that gets you 30% off and free shipping.  This makes the $9.99 movies $6.99 each with free shipping.  If you already have a Fox Connect account you will need to use a different address to get the code - like a throw away email service - but you can use the code on an existing account.  The email came almost instantly so check your junk mail or promotions folder if you don't get it right away.  I got Book Of Life 3D for $6.99 shipped and my daughter is pretty excited!

 

Now if I could just round up a smoking deal on Star Wars: The Force Awakens 3D...

Vr Headsets are 3D anyone know if you can watch 3d blu rays on a ps vr or htc vive? if so hope for the future with better screens in them!

I tried to watch on my Galaxy S7 and it sucks. It's like fisheyed 3-D and is really hard to trick your brain into not seeing double most of the time. All of the games and documentary shorts made specifically for the format look great though. I know it's lower end VR but i'd assume i'd be much the same moving up the line. Until something is specifically authored for VR i wouldn't bother.

Amazon has The Stewardesses for $15.99. While it's only about $3.50 off its previous price, this is a special interest Blu-Ray that's more likely to go out of print than be found much cheaper than this. 

 

https://www.amazon.c...m=ATVPDKIKX0DER

 

Made in the early 70s, soon after the Production Code, which put all sorts of limitations of what could be shown in films, was lifted. Not a great film, but it's got some pretty hardcore fans, and it's almost guaranteed to be different from anything else in your 3-D collection.

 

It Came From Outer Space, a 1950s sci-fi 3-D film, which has a hyperlink on the Stewardesses page, is also a good deal at $9.29 (as of this moment).

A number of sellers on Amazon have Pacific Rim 3D for $8.99 with free shipping.  The ones I see are fulfilled by Amazon and include free Prime shipping.

Is the US getting screwed on Rogue One? I see listings from other countries for 3D, but not here.

Zavvi has the Region Free 3D set containing both Avatar and Titanic for about $15 US.  Using the code HVDAY12 during checkout drops the price so the net cost with shipping stays just under $15.  Just make sure not to change regions to US if the site asks or you won't see the deal.

They could be doing what they did with The Force Awakens.  The US 3D listing didn't show up until months after the standard 2D home release.

Yeah, but with Force Awakens, nowhere had it in 3D at all until the collector's edition release later last year. Other regions are getting Rogue One right off the bat. That's what kind of leads me to believe we might be getting screwed on this one.

It looks like this code has ended, but there is a new code: WELCOME.  This code may only be available for new customers so you may need to setup a new account to get the deal.  If you don't see the deal or get an error that the item is not available change the region to UK (click flag in the upper right of the window).

Pompeii is $4.99 at BB right now. Even if it is more of a special effects demo than compelling narrative, it's well worth it at this price, and the 3-D is good. Was out of stock, now it's back in stock, but probably not for long.

I saw Rogue One in IMAX 3D as well as 2D (for Dolby Atmos) and the 3D effects in it weren't stunning.  I wouldn't be that worried about trying to get it in 3D on release.

Everyone is different, but I actually quite enjoyed Rogue One in 3D.  It didn't have much 'in your face' 3D, but was much more atmospheric.  I felt it was similar to much of Prometheus where the 3D was used a lot to give you a sense of depth as opposed to having things jump out of the screen at you.  I would prefer a 3D version for home and am hoping they will make it available in the US so I don't have to pay the premium to import it.

For me it's the principle of the matter—if it was released in 3D in the theater, that's how I want to own it on Blu-ray. Just like how I don't want to buy a TV show that orginally aired in HD on DVD

Force Awakens 3D Bluray may be the best technical 3D film behind Avatar or Gravity. It's ridiculous how natural all the added depth is and it brings tremendous value to all the epic action and set pieces. Rogue has quite a few as well that should stand out if it was done well in the theatre.

Yes, the battle at the climax was helped immeasurably by 3-D, as did the scenes featuring long drops, such as the scene where they physically obtain the Death Star plans, and scenes on top of the base the plans were kept.

Awesome, if the April 4th release rumor is true then hopefully a steelbook edition is announced shortly. Zavvi is sold out at this point and I assumed there would have been an announcement but hopefully it all goes live soon.
