For another WWII film released during the week, the news wasn’t so much about retailer promotions as it was which stores were even carrying it. The Oscar-winning Jojo Rabbit, from 20th Century Fox, wasn’t even stocked in a few Walmarts. And Target wasn’t offering the 4K Ultra HD version in stores. Copies of the film in all formats were still available on the chains’ websites.

Among other notable deals for the week, Target offered 20% off select Disney movies.
