Default Why Are Some Already Released Movies Being Released Again On bestbuy.com?

Here is a list of some of the movies I noticed were already released a long time ago on blu ray but are now being released again according to bestbuy.com on April 15th:

Click
The Benchwarmers
Flatliners
The Jane Austen Book Club
50 First Dates
Basic Instinct 2

These are only several I've noticed. I'm sure there are several more. But does anyone know why? Something wrong with their previous releases? Or maybe upgrading to something better? 2.0? Or maybe an even clearer transfer this time around? Please let me know cuz I have some of these and dont want to have to sell them to get the better discs.

Thanks!

probably a lowering of the msrp by the studio on that date.

Maybe little "fix" re-issue releases that aren't announced or anything big like that, sort of like Terminator 3 did.

Or it just might simply be a mistake.

I've seen that happen over the years. I never bothered to figure out why, though.

its usually like that when the studio releasing the titles that are depicted like that decides they want to lower the msrp of said titles on permanatly starting on a predetermined date.

Are you sure it's not a graphics thing or anything like that?
