Part of Blockbuster Express’ recent deal with Fox is that a few new releases from the studio will be exempt from the new 28-day window and will be available the day they are released on DVD—albeit for a higher price.

The first such title will be the Tom Cruise/Cameron Diaz action movie Knight and Day, which will be released on November 30. BB Express pricing on the title hasn’t been revealed yet, but speculation places it at possibly for the first night and thereafter.

BB Express rival Redbox, on the other hand, appears to be staying at the per night price point that has made it so successful.

According to Coinstar CFO Scott Di Valerio:

“We don’t believe at this point it is the right level to pull . . . we don’t see increasing the price for standard definition [DVD] in the near future”

How would you feel about paying $3 at a rental kiosk for the privilege of renting a forgettable-at-best Tom Cruise movie the day it’s released, Insiders? Also, what do you think “the near future” means to Coinstar/Redbox?

    this movie needs blu-ray so … you decide how to do it.
    bb express can charge any price they want. no bluray means no sale.

    What makes this deal any different than walking into a video store and paying $3 or $4 for it? All it means is their movies are going to sit, unrented, in their kiosks. The whole idea behind $1 rentals is that people are tired of paying $3 or $4 for a movie.

    What a bunch of morons! If I want any movie day and date, I just go into a brick-and-mortar Blockbuster and get it for $1.99 plus tax thanks to being a BB By Mail subscriber. There’s no way in hell i’m paying any more than $2 (Minus tax) for ANY movie. $3 at a kiosk? Are they out of their friggin’ minds?

      What about those who don’t want to venture to and from a brick and mortar Blockbuster? I don’t want to start the car up just to go to Blockbuster and back, I had better already be doing some grocery shopping close to my nearest Blockbuster. Can you return in-store exchanged movies by mail or must one return to the brick & mortar Blockbuster to return said movies?

    I can wait until Redbox / Netflix has it. People who did not go to the theater to see a movie are not likely to pay extra or buy it just to see the movie 30 days earlier. Redbox has plenty of other titles for only $1.

    I am lucky to have a “dollar” theater about 15 minutes south of my location. That alone beats down 28 day restrictions. Only current problem is Theater #7 screen/projection is messed up, therefore watching The Expendables was kinda nasty since the left and right sides of the projection were cutoff. $1.50 matinee, $2.00 after 6pm, $1 Tuesday nights after 6pm. Winner.
