Amazon Stops Taking Warner Bros DVD Pre-Orders

In case the Netflix vs. Verizon saga wasn't enough drama for you, Amazon is turning up the heat in its battle with Warner Bros. Home Video.

Amazon's quest for better deals and cheaper prices has seen it squeeze publishers, but it isn't limiting itself to just books. The New York Times reports that the retailer is refusing to list DVD pre-orders for upcoming launch of many Warner Home Video movies. We're not talking small releases either: The Lego Movie, 300: Rise of an Empire and Winter's Tale are just three titles launching in the coming days that Amazon lists but isn't allowing customers to order.
