    I'm less worried about Best Buy getting it and more worried about the qty they get and snagging a copy when the link goes live lol...

    That's a different issue altogether.

    The Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore 4K+2D Blu-ray SteelBook is available for online preorder at Best Buy USA with a
    release date of June 28, 2022 and costs $34.99 US dollars

    As for the release of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness Black release. Seeing how Black Widow took about two months to come to Bluray, while Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings took just short of three months. We’re probably looking at something similar to the latter for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, so we’re looking at around the end of July or start of August. If we had to put a date, we’re saying either July 26 or Aug. 2. Just keep your eyes open for both of them.

    I guess when it comes to Disney movie (Marvel, PIXAR, Disney movie and Star Wars) steelbooks we are going back to either feast or famine. I am also worried about the future Disney steelbook releases at BBCAN. Hopefully this is a one time thing this year and we are able to get future titles like Lightyear and Thor: Love and Thunder just to name a few.

    If Best Buy Canada stops the Disney exclusives, then there's really not much left apart from WB.
    Even their DC Animated series is not getting any releases here, and the few that do are 2K only, while Best Buy US is getting 4K Exclusives.

    Paramount, Sony, and boutique labels in the likes of Arrow, Shout!, Kino, Synapse are generally Retail Wide.
    Lionsgate, RLJ don't bother with Canada for a while now, and many of their standard releases don't even make it here either, apart from some DVD only editions.

    On the other hand, Best Buy US cranks out twice as many SteelBooks in a month than we get in a year.

    For SteelBook collectors in Canada, this doesn't leave many options other than Zavvi and Resellers.

    Has anyone been in the a BB store recently? What was, a few years back, 4 isles of BRD/DVD's, reduced to one intermittent isle, has now become a standalone shelf in the middle of a walkway in my local store.

    Physical media is all but dead at BB.

    It's been like that for a quite a while, pre-Covid I might add. My local Best Buy only had 1/4 of an aisle of strategically placed junk, with some new releases mixed in.
    Walmart also scaled down to a middle aisle display unit featuring New Releases, that's about it.

    As I always said, physical media will never die, but the strategy is shifting towards Boutique Labels & Specialized Retailers rather than Mass Retail.
    The US is different, they have the population to support sales, but in Canada, leaving aside the archaic rules of bilingual packaging because of the second largest province requiring it, there's not enough volume to justify the aggravation anyway.
