EW has rounded up some of the most notable movie box sets, collections, and bundles getting markdowns as part of that the special day, which may be in the running for the new Cyber Monday.

The set comes in a box topped with a miniature version of Nakatomi Tower in Los Angeles, where the first movie’s major action scenes take place.

The Bourne Classified Collection

This set doesn’t include the franchise’s most recent installment Jason Bourne — which marked Matt Damon’s return to the franchise — but it does have an empty slot in which you can slide that DVD, if you already own it.

This collection spans the first movie franchise born out of the original Star Trek TV series, and includes all six films from Star Trek: The Motion Picture to VI: The Undiscovered Country. Although the set has limited extras and commentary, most of the Amazon reviews say the film’s picture and audio quality have vastly improved.

Taken 1-3 Bundle

Liam Neeson’s former CIA operative character really can’t catch a break in this thriller trilogy, which all starts when he has to save his 17-year-old daughter from a human trafficking ring in France. The listing doesn’t mention any special features, but unless it’s just Neeson’s outtakes from the “I will find you, and I will kill you” speech, we don’t want them!
