I just preordered The Bourne Legacy blu-ray. I figure with $8 off the theatrical ticket price of a series I've very much liked so far, I can't go wrong. I've enjoyed Jeremy Renner's performances in other films, like The Town and The Hurt Locker as well as Tony Gilroy's direction, especially for Michael Clayton. Let's see if this can translate to a good Bourne film without Matt Damon.

Do those Fandango codes work in Canada?

These codes are also attached to a dozen-plus $10-15 titles at Best Buy including the previous Bourne films, both Conans, Cape Fear, Green Zone, etc.

Im just wondering once you preorder it, can you cancel it? Im not trying to get the movie ticket than ditch the order, but I do want to get the lowest price on release day. And I guess im going to spend $7 tomorrow night to see it anyways, so in a way its around $18.

@FT-86 You can cancel any preorders from Amazon and you won't be charged.

@ FT-86 $7?? Lucky you. Our matinee prices are $9, regular shows are $11.50 here in N. Virginia/DC metro. And most of the theaters only offer matinees as the first show around 10am. Who the heck wants to go to a movie that early on Saturday/Sunday?

BTW Amazon is great. If the price of the Blu-Ray drops after you pre-order, they will give you the lowest price. If it already shipped, they issue you a credit back to your card.

Here in central VA, theaters still offer matinee prices until 3 or 4. Many people prefer the morning (11ish) weekend showings to get the matinee savings and avoid the crowds.

@jmdiaz: Our matinee is still only 5.50 here (up 75 cent from 3 years ago), unless it's a 3D showing, which is about a buck more. Unfortunately, a large popcorn and drink has shot up from a rediculous 7.50 to an out of this world 14.25 (with combo discount), just in the last year. I think it's Cinemark's way of paying for the new digital projectors they've got in every auditorium now.

This is a tempting deal. I already took amazon up on their similar deals for MIB3 and Prometheus. But after factoring in one large popcorn and two drinks, not to mention another ticket, I'm much better off just waiting for the BD. As great as it looks, I think I can resist seeing this one for a few months.

Even for the two films with similar promotions that I already took amazon up on, I'd much rather see, even half that discount, toward purchase of the BD itself.

"Who the heck wants to go to a movie that early on Saturday/Sunday?"

That would be me -- it's my favorite time to see a movie. The audiences are lighter, and less likely to be disruptive because only crazy people like myself would get up to see a movie early in the morning.

@ bookcase & bunkz, sounds good but I like to sleep in on weekends. I actually wind up going early afternoon or weekdays after work. No crowds. I try to avoid buying anything at the theater, it's ridiculous how much they charge.

I wish they still manufactured movie programs for some of the big budget movies. Those were fun to collect. But snacks? No way!

Movie ticketprices are cheap in AZ. If your student here in AZ, the harkin theaters charge $7 if your a college student. I dont go to school, but just show them a college i.d. I had from a class i took.And at AMC theaters, if you go before 12, it's $5. But if your an adult it's around $9-$10. And Harkins here have a loyalty thing, if you buy their shirt you get a free medium popcorn voucher(upgrade to a large for $1), and if you buy their loyalty cup for $3.50,you can get unlimited refills for a $1. So I only spend $2 for a large popcorn and a large drink. We get spoiled here a bit.

@ MoulinBlu - Study the Federal Reserve system and you'll understand why prices are rising even though production is shrinking.

"Bourne Legacy" is opening pretty strong at #1 with $45 million for the weekend. "Ultimatum" made $69.3 million on opening weekend 5 years ago. "Supremacy" made $52.5 million on opening weekend in 2004.

I saw "Legacy" today. It was definitely the worst of the franchise (ditto for its RT score)...a pretty average movie overall. Renner's a good actor, but Aaron Cross wasn't a meaty role. I dug the opening stuff (winter/Alaska). The chase sequence was waaayyy too long. I'm tired of having chase scenes for the sake of having them.

Matinees here in IA at the local (30 miles away) AMC are $5 M-Th before 6 PM. On F, Sa, Su...they're $5 before noon...$7.25 or $7.50 between 12-4...and $10 after that. $5 is a fair price for a new release (even though most releases are merely average movies). There's no student discount there. The Wherenberg theater in Cedar Rapids offers a student discount, but only if you're 22 or younger.

As far as thinner crowds in the morning...I suppose that's true as compared to Fr, Sa nights. But Friday morning showtimes ("Bourne" was at 10) for new releases get pretty busy. Mine was, including the obligatory person sitting one seat away from you when there are 200 seats open.

If it was the printable coupon I'd be all over this but the only theater that uses fandango is more expensive even with the ticket off because our usual place has a concession stand program where you pay a small price once and then it's only a $1 to refill the rest of the year.

@get1080pnot720p Nah many studios do this to get people into theatres.

Right...when word-of-mouth response of the quality of the particular film in question won't be selling tickets ("hey, did you see the new Bourne film? Nah...I heard it wasn't worth seeing in the theater...wating for the BD to rent...oh, but wait...if I buy it now [without knowing whether or not I want to own it...but I do already own the first three and will need to be complete...] for $25 [much higher than the average BD price], I get to see it in the theater [which I wasn't going to do] for half-price...sold!")...

That said, I've never heard of a major "blockbuster" film being offered for sale on BD before its theatrical release, let alone with a coupon to see the same film in the theater (this certainly didn't happen with any of the previous Bourne films). It's Universal's response to mixed critical reviews and inevitable mixed word-of-mouth from filmgoers, and it is, in a word...bribery.

"I saw "Legacy" today. It was definitely the worst of the franchise (ditto for its RT score)...a pretty average movie overall."

Hunk Golden, thanks for the confirmation. That was my assumption based on the decidedly mixed (to poor) critical reviews (in contrast with the first film, which had solid reviews and was indeed quite enjoyable and worthy of ownership). I second you on the endless (and mindless) chase scenes; they're only interesting when we care about the guy that's running and the people he's running from (I couldn't care less about either the second or third films, for exactly that reason [the third film was essentially a two-hour chase scene...joy]).

In short, only those that don't value their money (especially paying $25 for a BD...) and the integrity of their collections blind-buy. Just sayin'. Remember that what is key here is knowing what you're buying based on what you know it is...not what you hope it is or what you think it's going to be like. Before retorting, remember what I wrote above...it's about knowledge and fact, not assumption and opinion. I knew what every film in my collection was before I bought each of them, and I bought each of them because I wanted to own them based on something I knew that they contained (regardless of anyone's opinions of what I like about them or don't)...not what I assumed their quality or ownership value would be.

p.s. this film will be on sale (as a loss leader) for 9.99 at Worst Buy by the end of the year. Just sayin'.

Of all of the various movie-cash offers, Fandango's is easily the worst. Having to know the exact date and time you're going to see the movie on is fine for people that schedule everything in their lives, but a pain for everyone else. Just let us print a coupon for use any time. It's that simple.

Was looking forward to pre-ordering this, but just saw it and was greatly disappointed, in a matter of fact it was terrible. It may or may not only be a matter of my opinion, and while I surely won't be ordering this now, it doesn't mean I'm discouraging anyone from buying this. I will however say that it's not wise to blind buy this one (I know some will assume this is a good film caused it's in the Bourne series), but rather it's best to see the movie on a cheap matinee before determining whether to order or not.

Other movies have done this recently, Prometheus and Men In Black III come to mind. We'll probably see more of it in the future. I wish they wouldn't use Fandango, though; I had a code for this from a Best Buy blu purchase, and when I tried to redeem it I discovered that the nearest theater to me that accepts it is 45 miles away! I'd burn the savings (literally) in gas to get there.
