I thought the days of writing about "Avatar" breaking all sorts of records (No. domestic film, No. 1 worldwide film, No. 1 several weeks in a row, etc.). were over.
But now that the film has come out on DVD and Blu-ray it's breaking records in that medium as well.
From 20th Century Fox comes the news that first day sales of "Avatar" on Blu-ray came in at 1.5 million units, beating out the previous record of 600,000 set by "The Dark Knight."
Just think about that for a second – "The Dark Knight" was one of the most popular movies we’ve ever seen and the amount of people who bought it first day on Blu-ray was quite amazing. But along comes "Avatar" and trumps Batman by more than DOUBLE that amount.
What kind of sucks for all those people who bought the film is that is the only thing they got. No commentaries, making-of featurettes, no special features at all.
For people who actually want to see those and the movie, they will have to wait for the already planned four-disc ultimate edition due out this November. So my advice is if you don’t want to pay twice for the same movie, then hold on to your hard-earned cash for that full release.
Hopefully my next post on anything "Avatar" will not be about that film and will be about news on the upcoming sequel.
More news to come! Catch ya' later!
