Default Transformers, a Blockbuster exclusive?

Hi new to forum. Just was wondering if anyone knew, if Blockbuster had an exclusive on the Transformers movie when it will be released on HiDef. My local store said that they are still getting some copies in on Blu-ray because they had a contract with Paramont before they ditched old Blu?

What's the fee on saying that a movie was "lost".

If they did have this exclusive deal, then I would def. "rent" it and never bring it back!

It's just the cost of the movie usually. So figure like whatever the BD would cost, prolly around $30.

yeah i'd say don't get your hopes up too high. it would seem odd for paramount to press a bunch of transformers BD just for blockbuster...

But didn't I read somewhere that there were some clauses in Paramounts agreement with hd dvd that would allow some flicks to be released on both formats?
