The Purge From Universal Studios Home Entertainment On Oct. 8

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph Tribbey
Much has been written this summer about the big “Hollywood” film flops.   Although with studio accounting it is sometimes difficult to tell what is profitable and what isn’t … certainly Disney’s The Lone Ranger was a financial mess; everyone can agree on that one.

Another film that everyone nods in agreement on is the profitability of writer/director James DeMonaco’s The Purge … the highly publicized budget of around $3 million makes this $64.4 million box office success very profitable for Universal Pictures.    

Add in critical praise and genre-fan acceptance and you can take it to the bank that the home entertainment market will be another success story!

This wholly original sci-fi thriller will be heading home on Oct. 8 as both a stand-alone DVD SKU and a Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack (both include UltraViolet).  The ARR for that street date works out to 123 days.

The only bonus goodie is the featurette titled “Surviving The Night: The Making of The Purge.”
