Amazon Takes On Disney And Captain America

Consumers are suddenly unable to place advance orders to buy DVDs or Blu-ray discs of forthcoming films from Walt Disney Studios , including two popular summer releases that each captured more than $700 million in global box office receipts "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" and "Maleficent." Neither Disney nor Amazon responded to requests for comment on the development, which was first reported by Home Media Magazine . Getty Images Amazon's move is reminiscent of a dispute it had with another powerhouse Hollywood film studio, Warner Bros. Earlier this summer, Amazon halted http://asuncioncynovadreams.blog.fc2.com preorders of movie discs from the studio ahead of the hotly anticipated home release of the family film "The front page Lego Movie." Amazon used the hard-ball tactics to persuade Warner Bros. to agree to more favorable deal terms, according to one person with knowledge of the discussion. Ultimately, http://fredericnagu.edublogs.org the two sides reached an accord, and DVD and Blu-ray disc sales resumed. On the print side, the retail giant is embroiled in a pricing dispute with book publisher Hachette, as the bookseller seeks to drop the price for electronic books. Hachette has resisted and Amazon responded by suspending advance orders of titles from the publisher's authors and slowing mail delivery of its books.
