‘Red White & Royal Blue’ Soars No.1 Movie Globally; Fans Ask for Original 3-Hour Film Version

Red White & Royal Blue

History? They made some — and more!

The movie adaptation of Casey McQuiston’s novel of the same name, ‘Red White & Royal Blue’, was released a week ago and since then, it has been the talk of the town with its successful book-to-film adaptation. Starring Taylor Zakhar Perez as “Alex Claremont-Diaz” and Nicholas Galitzine as “Prince Henry Fox-Mountchristen-Windsor”, the great acting and undeniable chemistry of the two good-looking men have definitely helped catapult the movie to number 1 in Amazon Prime. The romantic comedy is now Prime Video’s top three most-watched movies and has helped the huge surge of new Prime Video membership.

“The phenomenal debut of ‘Red, White, and Royal Blue’ is a true testament to the entertaining and inspired storytelling led by creative minds behind it,” says Amazon MGM Studios executive Jennifer Salke in a statement. The success of the queer fairytale-like romcom is also lauded by GLAAD (Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation), America’s non-governmental media monitoring organization. “The tremendous initial success of Prime Video’s ‘Red, White, & Royal Blue’ sends a clear message that entertainment with LGBTQ-lead stories can be hits with audiences and by industry standards,” said GLAAD in a statement.

 

With the success of ‘Red, White, & Royal Blue’, fans have been clamoring for more, especially when director Matthew López admitted that they decided to cut the movie down from 3 hours. López said in an interview that he watched the three-hour version of the movie given by his editor and decided that “everything that wasn’t Alex and Henry had to go.” But this did not bode well with some fans (not seriously), because some have even started a petition to release the three-hour cut.

López, however, clarified in a separate interview that there was actually never a three-hour cut of the film and it was merely an assembly where everything else is in it. He said that there was a misunderstanding with what he said in the previous interview.

 

‘Red, White, & Royal Blue’ is now available to stream on Amazon Prime Video.
