I know it's region free and it's widely known to be a SD upconversion transfer, but Best Buy actually has Escape from New York BluRay listed on their website for sale. The cover shown is from the Optimum UK Bluray.

They also have The Fog which is another Optimum UK Bluray:

Sadly though, They Live is not listed on the site.

Never go by photos. Always read the descriptions. That's my motto.

Yeah, but none of these films have been released on BluRay here in Region A (US/Canada). The release dates of 5/12/09 listed on the Best Buy site are even the correct dates for these UK releases.

Ha, that's terrific. I did notice in store, they have a lot of those As Seen on TV stuff near the check out. I figured it was just for the holiday season and never dreamed they would actually have that stuff listed on their site. Here's a few more AS Seen on TV products:

Yeah I noticed it in store as well when I was checking out. I nodded my head in disbelief. And like you, I didn't think they would have that listed on their site. Sure enough. What any of that stuff has to do with "electronics", is beyond me. But also like you said, it might just be for the holidays. I guess we'll find out next year.
