One Has No Box... Update ID

There's a new way to watch the Wing Commander movie... sort of! Amazon.com recently premiered their "Unbox" service, which allows users to purchase or rent digital copies of select movies through their online superstore... and Timothy J. Chan reports that Wing Commander is part of their initial offering! Users can buy the movie outright for $9.98, or purchase a 30-day rental for $3.99 -- and then there's a $1.99 rebate for early adopters... that's practically giving it away! Owners may keep copies of the movie on two computers and two portable devices at once. You can buy the movie here or rent it here. Note that this is the full screen version of the movie rather than a direct rip of the widescreen Region 1 DVD.

Wing Commander has proved a popular seller -- when I purchased it last night, it was ranked #90... and it's already made its way to the #8 slot.
