A stand-off between Amazon and Warner Bros. over pricing of DVD and Blu-ray Discs — in which Amazon halted preorders of forthcoming movies being released by the studio — is close to a resolution. The Wall Street Journal indicated today (Tuesday). Amazon has reportedly agreed to resume taking preorders for such forthcoming Warner DVD and Blu-ray releases as Transcendence and 300: Rise of an Empire. The online retailer had reportedly been seeking more favorable terms from Warner’s, the Journal said, citing people familiar with the matter. The Journal observed tht Amazon has used similar delaying tactics in the past to gain leverage with suppliers, including, most recently, Hachette Book Group.
