Wow. Despite the fact that the giant goiter with a man growing out of it (or, as you might know it, George Lucas), continued to meddle with his original vision, tossing in even more cheesy CGI additions and horrible Darth Vadar “NOOOOOOOO!” exclamations, the Star Wars complete saga Blu-Ray set has, within just one week, become the highest selling Blu-Ray of all time.
Let me say that again– the Star Wars complete saga Blu-Ray set, released on September 16th, has, within just one week, become the highest selling Blu-Ray of all time, according to Deadline. This means that people actually paid money to see Lucas defile his classic series (ok, classic original trilogy and mind-bendingly horrible prequel trilogy) even further, as the box set sold over one million units, which equals about $84 million in sales, 515,000 of those being sold right her e in the U.S. of A.
So, there you go, America—never underestimate the need of the fanboys to see Greedo shooting first in high definition; meanwhile, somewhere in a mansion far, far away, an almost comically out of touch filmmaker sits in a pair of blue jeans and a red flannel shirt, twirling his beard and laughing, as his wallet and neck waddle continue to swell in parallel proportion to the Dark Side of the Force, which forces us all to keep watching a series of kid’s movies about glowing swords and talking robots.
What do you think of the Star Wars news?
