O-p-u-l-e-n-c-e. Opulence! Some big, flashy money be on the screen this week in home entertainment, queens!

Bonus for 3D Blu-ray owners — the 3D is pretty cool, especially those nifty jumps into warp speed. Extras include a batch of short featurettes.

      Regarding the MDNA tour. We’ve already seen it and downloaded it before it was released.
