Red 2 Will Hit Blu-ray And DVD In November
Summer theatrical releases have been trickling onto Blu-ray, DVD and Digital over the last several months. Soon, buyers will be able to add Red 2 to the pre-holiday list. Lionsgate Home Entertainment announced the flick will be hitting homes in just a few weeks with plenty of room to spare prior to Christmas present wrapping season. The action-filled sequel to Red will be available via Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD, Video On Demand and Pay-Per-View on November 26.
Red 2 doesn’t have quite as much pizzazz as its predecessor, but it does offer familiar jokes and a top-of-the-line cast, including Bruce Willis, John Malkovich, Helen Mirren, Anthony Hopkins, Mary Louise-Parker, and Catherine Zeta-Jones. The second film in the franchise follows a plot to take down Marvin (Malkovich) and Frank (Willis) after some details involving a Cold War age mission emerge. Foes and friends from the past pop up, creating a highly detailed film that’s full of hijinks and quite frankly, more than enough fun. Obviously, it’s not the type of thing most viewers will be heaping lofty praise on at the second the runtime finishes, but it’s also not the type of thing anyone would ever turn off mid-movie. In short, it’s a crowd pleaser, and if you need further proof of that, check out the pretty enjoyable trailer below.
The flick’s an enjoyable one, but unfortunately, it won’t come with a ton of extras. DVD and Blu-ray copies will come with some basics, liked deleted scenes and a gag reel. Blu-ray copies will also come with an additional extra, a behind-the-scenes featurette called “The Red 2 Experience.” That’s not to say the set won’t be worth purchasing for excited fans, but it does probably mean it’s best not to pay full price. Right now, the Lionsgate sets have a suggested retail price of $39.99 for the Blu-ray and $29.95 for the DVD, but they are already available for a sale price over at Amazon. There’s no telling exactly how long that figure might last; so, if you’re interested, you may want to jump on that order sooner rather than later. There are few things more frustrating than coming back the next day to find a price has drifted higher.
