Batman: Mask of the Phantasm (2017-07-25)

Strictly speaking, this is not a retailer exclusive but a Warner Archive release.  However, retailers don't usually stock Warner Archive titles, though and both have this one listed.  This Blu-ray will include both 1.78:1 and open-matte 1.33:1 transfers.

It appears that the only extra will be the original theatrical trailer.  However, there was an "HBO First Look" with some decent behind-the-scenes interviews.

The Fifth Element (2017-07-11)

Best Buy: 4K Steelbook (same design as previous Steelbook with problematic 2006 Blu-ray version)

Best Buy Paramount Catalog MetalPaks (2017-06-11)

Note: Mission: Impossible, Patriot Games, and War of the Worlds have appeared as MetalPaks at Walmart in the past.  The Wolf of Wall Street was a Target Exclusive.

Since these and other Paramount MetalPaks are simply making the rounds at various retailers, I'm going to remove them from the Best Buy, Target, and Walmart lists.

Mission: Impossible, Patriot Games, War of the Worlds (Spielberg), The Wolf of Wall Street
