Guide: ‘Divergent’ Blu-ray Exclusive Releases From Retailers
HD Report has published a very handy guide for those that are trying to decide between the different U.S. retailer versions of the Divergent Blu-Ray. We published something similar along with a chart a few weeks ago for all the releases including the digital download, but I wanted to share this article which includes more details specifically on the Blu-Ray releases:
Lionsgate has released the film Divergent to Blu-ray Disc, and along with the usual 1-Disc DVD and 2-Disc Blu-ray versions retailers are selling exclusive editions with variations in packaging, content and bonus items. Best Buy, Target and Walmart all have their own exclusive editions, with Target and Walmart offering the most for your buck. Oddly enough, Amazon does not have an exclusive release for Divergent. All the exclusives also contain a Digital HD copy redeemable through UltraViolet. Let’s take a look at the exclusives.
Best Buy has Divergent in exclusive “collectible” Steelbook packaging that includes a Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD copy via UltraViolet. The edition carries an MSRP of $29.99 and is on sale for $19.99. The Steelbook edition is priced exactly the same as the common 2-Disc Blu-ray combo, so why not grab the more unique package?
Target’s exclusive Divergent release includes a 50″x60″ fleece blanket, as well as exclusive packaging for the edition that packs a Blu-ray, DVD, and Bonus Disc (DVD) with an additional 45-minutes of exclusive content with cast interviews, an inside look at the costumes, and featurette about the film’s music score. Unfortunately, the fleece blank exclusive is only offered online. List-priced at $29.99, the edition is currently on sale for $19.99.
Walmart’s Divergent exclusive contains an extra 60 extra minutes of content, booklet, and the first 20 pages of the new e-book “Four.” The exclusive includes a Blu-ray Disc, DVD, and Digital HD copy via UltraViolet. The edition is list-priced at $39.99, but is currently on sale for $21.96.
Have you bought you copy of Divergent on Blu-Ray yet…and if so, which retailer version did you get? We’re dying to know.
