Every day, Amazon offers up “Lightning Deals,” limited quantities of various products for a discounted price for a 4-hour window of time. You have to be on the lookout for these deals and once the item runs out within that four hours, the sale is over. Meaning, if you see something on sale that you want, buy it immediately before it’s gone.
Typically you don’t know what will be on sale until the minute it gets posted, but as part of their Holiday event, Amazon has released this week’s Lightning Deal schedule for Movies & TV on DVD and Blu-ray. See below for a list of today’s deals — which begin at 8:30am PST and run through 9:30pm PST — along with more information on how these special deals work. The last deal goes up at 5:30pm PST.
There’s also TONS of extremely low prices and great deals on DVDs and Blu-rays right now, so visit the TOP HOLIDAY DEALS page to see the wide selection.
Also, Amazon’s Blu-ray box set deal of the week is the Glee: The Complete First Season Blu-ray Edition for only $34.99 (that’s 50% off the list price of $69.99). The TV Deal of the Week is Married…with Children: The Complete Series DVD box set for only $116.99 (that’s 53% off the list price of $250.95). Both deals are valid only for this week through December 18, 2010.
If there was a trailer before the teaser trailer, this would be what it looked like.
In what seems like more of a sales-pitch for the currently available-for-purchase film, a small behind-the-scenes video has been released with director Terry Gilliam chatting about The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, the last film that Heath Ledger ever appeared in.
Check out the ultra-teaser below; click the image above to get a bigger peek at some of the set.
In the clip, we see a lot of footage of Gilliam’s older, more visually stunning projects like Time Bandits, 12 Monkeys, and The Adventures of Baron Munchausen (among others) to give a feel of what we can hope to expect with Parnassus. Mixed in with all of this footage, we also are treated to some concept art, small clips, and images from The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, including various cast members, Ledger among them.
