Was at my local Woolworth's store today and to my amazement saw this, now i know what is going on with paramount and co but the average joe dosen't!

Someone is going to be upset when they take this to the counter??

Found this funny actually...haven't corrected them in store yet

Wait a second. Where did that come from?
It isn't a BD so why is there a BD box? Is it empty?

Maybe it is a foreign release I don't know about. It does have and not $ on the sign.

Why are there empty boxes on the shelves? Is it a policy of the store or something? And why can't they put them in the right box either?

Must say it looks nicer in the blu box though

I think anyone who knows anything about blu would do a double take if they saw that on the shelf. Keep us posted as to what they say when you go back.
