Five of the biggest movie studios have surprisingly banded together to fix an annoying aspect of the digital age. As we accumulate movies across different platforms, our library gets scattered and we have to utilize a wide variety of services to see what we own. But now, movies that that were produced by 20th Century Fox, Warner Brothers, Universal, Disney and Sony Pictures and are owned within iTunes, Amazon Video, Vudu or Google Play can now be interlinked under an umbrella called Movies Anywhere. And Wing Commander is fortunate enough to be part of this new system! Whatever you own on one of the platforms and from one of the studios mentioned above instantly becomes available on all of the others. It all looks a lot more user-friendly and inclusive than the UltraViolet scheme. There's also several decent free movies that they give you if you sign up now. So if you happened to pick up Wing Commander on sale at one storefront but prefer another, now you're in luck! If you don't yet own it digitally, the going rate is $9.99 at iTunes, Amazon, Vudu or YouTube. Occasional sales can bring the price down to around $7, however lately these have been somewhat fewer and farther between.
Based on the best selling video game, Wing Commander is now a full length action-packed movie! Starship Troopers meets Top Gun in this no-holds-battle for the future of mankind. A vicious alien race, the Kilrathi, has discovered the coordinates to Earth and is heading its way! Now it's up to two young hotshot fighter pilots to blast their way through the Kilrathi's defenses and save their planet from this new breed of enemy.

Sienta la Ciencia y la Ficción
Christian Klein marches ever closer to having a complete set of Wing Commander games translated for Spain. This looks like a pretty thorough job with everything from the box to disc to manuals in Spanish, although no in-game audio has been revamped. The front doesn't have the big Midway flap that opens, but the static front and rearranged rear screenshot collage make it its own unique collectible! (2018-09-17)
