Avatar Sells 6.2 Million Copies on Blu-ray Worldwide

Posted May 12, 2010 05:48 AM by Juan Calonge

Blu-ray MoviesAccording to Deadline Hollywood's Nikki Finke, Avatar has sold 6.2 million copies on Blu-ray in its first three weeks on shelves, "more than double the industry standard for the high-definition format." James Cameron's epic is now the top-selling Blu-ray release of all time worldwide, and it has "no sign of slowing down."

Thats about 93 million GBP and 138 million USD.I dont think FOX will give Cameron much choice whether theres a sequel or not.

We witnessed history people in theaters and home. And it looks like it's gonna be a long time for it to happen again. Unless James Cameron has something to say about it.

What's amazing to me is James Cameron now has the 2 highest grossing films in history: Avatar and Titanic. It's hard to even dream of such an accomplishment, never mind experience it in reality. Neither movie is perfect and neither movie will please all 6 billion humans on the planet, but I think we'd all agree that Mr. Cameron sure deserves credit for what both films have achieved overall. Well done sir.

A well deserved accomplishment for surely one of the best film makers of our time. I think it's brialliant that Blu Ray is getting more world wide recognition due to Avatar. Love it or hate it, Avatr has really helped the format that we all love so much and long may it continue.

Wel done JC!

Wow first comment here about anything and I get jumped on...awesome. Guess it's a touchy subject...

I fully support double-dipping, do not misinterpret. It is good business for the distributing companies to do so, mainly because consumers constantly have shown they are willing to buy release after release after release despite whining about it. And good business in a world where digital piracy threatens future projects such as this is...well...good.

I merely stated that come November, there will be a mass amount of people who will be upset that there is another release because they failed to research their initial purchase...and unfortunately we will have to listen to them "crying about it" all over again...

Really hdiam?? "well done JC?" Im sorry JC has given the world some of the most POMPOUS films of all time, and has LITTLE TO NOTHING to do with the acceptance of BR. LCD tv's have gone down in price, BR players, BR discs....all have dropped within the last year. Analog TV by FCC law is now DEAD, again pushing torwards the digital market, which feeds right into BR.

ITS THE MARKET KIDS, the market dictates the acceptance or rejection of ANY newer format.

JC only happen to put out a highly CGI heavy film during a price lull in the BR market.

Is that to be congratulated?

I think the studios, companies, and markets should be THANKING ALL OF US! for purchasing BR products.

I would tend to agree with servocrow. should we be thanking JC for living in a more technical era as well. So we should thank JC for making a mostly computer based film that took him like 10 years to make (weather it is a good film is not what we are discussing here). He has given us some of the most bloated crap films to date (ie. Titanic). He believes he is smarter than most people who even go to see his films and treats us as if we should be bowing to his greatness.
I say lets thank the technological times we live in. If blu ray didn't exsist trust me people would still be buying this in mass on dvd. PLEASE GET A CLUE HDIAM

James Cameron's movies are ones that people will see over and over and over again. Avatar and Titanic both are proof of that. Cameron has done fine job in giving people what they want.

Where it not for his past accomplishments (e.g. Terminator movies, Alien, Abyss), the studios would never have handed him the money to make Avatar. Cameron's past track record was enough for them.

Love him or hate him, he's very good at what he does.

I must be living in bizarro world. "We witnessed history"? "One of the best film makers of our time"? Avatar is the pinnacle of Hollywood trash. Storytelling, acting and directing do not matter as long as you ramp up the visuals. That's 6.2 million people who like crap. No difference between this and those who buy a Britney Spears album or consume McDonalds. As long as the wrapper is pretty it doesn't matter what's inside.

I guess I shouldn't be surprised at all the gushing for James Cameron but let me say,
Avatar was a steaming pile of a movie...albeit somewhat visually impressive. The movie had a
retread plot, horrible acting, and no characters worth caring for. I do not understand
why most of the world has been captivated by Avatar...and I don't think anyone can come
up with a bona fide reason for its "accomplishments." If I were James Cameron, I would
have been utterly embarrased to sit at the Oscars with a nomination for best film.

It's quite amazing how much jealousy & envy the mere mention of "Avatar" or "James Cameron" attracts. Like a hatred fix for negativity junkies.

People just love hating on whats popular. They like to show themselves to be different, in a attempt to look more intelligent than others. It's really quite sad.

what i find to be funny about a lot of the haters of this movie is that they all say it was a waste of their time watching it, but will waste more of their time reading post about the movie and posting comments.

just because you think it's crap doesn't make it crap....
