Retail outlets, including Amazon.com, got the jump on Sony Pictures Home Entertainment with order-taking efforts for both DVD and Blu-ray editions of writer/director Leigh Whannell’s third installment in his commercially successful Insidious horror film series.
The street date is Oct. 6 (which SPHE confirmed) for both DVD and Blu-ray editions of Insidious: Chapter 3, which is actually a prequel to the first film.
The ARR comes in at 123 days and ticket sales were solid at $52.1 million. The first film, Insidious, pulled in $54 million during its 2011 run and the first sequel, Insidious: Chapter 2 did even better with $83.6 million in ticket sales.
Those are nice numbers and that could leave it open for yet another round of demons from other dimensions.
Bonus goodies included with both SKUs is the featurette titled “Origin Story: Making Chapter 3.” Exclusive to the Blu-ray edition are deleted scenes and four additional featurettes — “Being Haunted: A Psychic Medium Speaks,” “Macabre Creations,” “Stunts: The Car Crash” and “Cherry Glazerr: Tiptoe Through the Tulips.”
