Is it a mistake? Is it some special deal Redbox made with Disney?

I don’t know the answer yet, but what I do know is that you can likely rent “Bolt” at a Redbox kiosk near you right now.

    I just rented Bolt from my local Redbox, Muncie IN. while at the Redbox I noticed a lot of the older movies were gone, excluding the replay movies. Spring is in the air, looks like Redbox was busy spring cleaning. Did have 28 pages of movies now down to 17 pages.

      It looks like you have a lot of boxes nearby, when I sort by release date I saw a lot of movies at the two locations I picked, doesn’t look like they cut back, looks typical to me. Maybe it just happens that people took movies from the box you went to and returned them elsewhere.

        The movies that were taken out of my local Redbox were the ones not listed on the online site, only at the Redbox its self. Movies like Zoom, Internet Dating, Hoochie Mama Drama etc. off the wall stuff. The Manger of the McDonalds told me the tech removed a lot of movies that was taking up space. Hopefully they will put in more than 1 or 2 copies of new releases.

    Nothing in the official blog about this either.

    Bolt was also for sale at my local Walmart today, both Bluray and DVD… that’s weird. Maybe they decided to release it early without telling anyone?

    Reserved Bolt earlier this evening. Went to pick it up kept telling me it was being dispensed. Finally told me it was an error and that my card would not be charged. So maybe a hit or a miss.

    Just rented it in Colorado even though the box stated Tuesday for the release date.

    Wal-Mart broke street date and Disney bowed to them and did not pursue any punishment. When anyone breaks street date then everyone else is also allowed for competition reasons.

      It doesn’t give them “permission” to break street date. They will get fined as well and too be honest, I think this should hurt their licensing contracts.

    I’ve been seeing commercials for Bolt being released early. I think it’s something special about the BluRay connection.

    Since this seems to be surprising some people I’m thinking that the commercials might not have been wide spread or run very often so not a lot saw it.

    The disc label is “BOLT_US_RENTAL”… which may have been a way to maneuver around normal retail restrictions…

    Is the movie too sad for kids?

    Twilight was also released on Saturday. I think you will see more Saturday releases rather than Tuesday; easier for people to buy/rent movies when they are not working or going to class.

    Walmart violated the Street Date for Bolt and caused other competitors to follow suit. The known ones have been reported to Disney. This is a huge problem for those part of the Disney Company who can get terminated if they violate street dates. Walmart is going to get fined, but that’s not enough.

    Disney probably needs Walmart more than Walmart needs Disney, I believe Wal-mart is the largest DVD retailer. So if Wal-Mart thinks it can bost Bolt sales by selling it to people who came in to look for Twilight, then Disney won’t complain much (except maybe for show).

      Without Disney’s licensing agreement with Wal-Mart, Wal-Mart wouldn’t have products that are geared toward a huge demographic. Too many violations can change that.

    The Blu-Ray edition was set to release on Sat. however the DVD is supposed to be getting released on Tue. I work for Target and I know we are honoring the release date. However, I used to work for Wal-Mart along time ago, and they very seldom care about the release dates because they know they will face very little repercussions from it.
