Summit Entertainment’s hit AARP-aged spy thriller Red starring Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich, Helen Mirren, Brian Cox and Mary-Louise Parker made its Blu-ray and DVD debut a couple days ago just after the studio announced it was moving forward with a sequel. Since that time it has managed to eclipse the Blu-ray Star Wars Saga on Amazon’s hourly bestsellers chart.
What’s amazing is that there are two different skus for Red on Blu-ray and both of them have jumped over Luke, Han, Yoda and pals. The movie-only edition (which also lacks 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio) is the third bestselling title right now, priced at a very inviting $12.99 (57% off the $30.49 list price).
The special edition version is over $10 more at $23.99, but that isn’t stopping buyers from gobbling it up. It currently sits right behind the movie-only edition in the number four spot.
