“Avatar” Blu-ray shatters first-day sales records


It seems the Na’vi are more powerful than Batman.

James Cameron’s “Avatar” moved far more Blu-rays in its first day of sales — at an estimated 1.5 million copies — than previously sales leader “The Dark Knight,” according to the Hollywood Reporter.

A Fox rep who declined to specific figures told THR that retailers “sold out of 60% of their Blu-ray inventory on average,” and that mass merchants “moved out roughly 50%” of their supply. The article estimated that more than 4 million “Avatar” units moved yesterday when you combine DVD and Blu-ray sales.

“We’re not focusing on sales,” Jon Landau said at a ceremonial tree-planting ceremony held Thursday, Earth Day, on the Fox lot. “We’re focusing on the events. There were 300 kids there today. They’re the future, so this is raising awareness, and that’s a great thing.”
