Well it was $16.99 on Best Buy and Amazon, so it was no surprise on selling that well.

I think that after it winning big at Golden Globes, the sales for Social Network will only continue for the next few weeks. Then, probably a surge during Academy time at the end of next month.

With a $17 price tag at quite a few retailers, it's no surprise it was. That, and the movie was really, really good, too.

Oh, and to be as clever as the first three posters:

I'm not sure if DVD and digital copies being included really matter. It's just that they force them in you with big movies that would sell well anyway. I certainly wouldn't be any more or less likely to buy something because of those.

^Grin, I think the point is more that a person who only has a dvd player, but might be interested in bluray in the future, is more likely to pick up a reasonably priced combo-pack. So a combo-release can have skewed sales numbers--how many of those sales are from a person with a blu-ray player, and how many from just a keen consumer? In the case of The Social Network, since it isn't a combo-pack, the figures mean more.

In a few weeks time, The Social Network will have droped to 6th or 7th place, but Inception will likely still be in the top 5

The Social Network is a fine movie but it's a fad movie, the type of film people forget about in a few years time. Inception on the other hand is a classic, the type of movie people will still be talking about in a decade

Excellent to set the record with no DVD or DC included. This shows people truly wanted the Blu-ray Disc experience -- and it's not even a genre film.

Wdm81- It's funny because I actually think the opposite. I think Social Network is the one that will stand a better test of time. that being said, I think they will both hold up just fine for quite sometime. Inception should do better for the home market simply because it's more of a "show off your system" type of movie. But debating Nolan vs Fincher is like Portman Vs Kunis. You win with either.

Wdm81 - You've completely missed the entire point of The Social Network. It's not about Facebook alone (which is more than a fad, I assure you -- pet rocks were a fad and 1/7 of the world's population never owned pet rocks). The themes of the film -- friendship and betrayal -- are timeless and it encapsulates the digital age we've come to know. In that way, it's the first film to capture this era we're living in. It will win Best Picture which will cement it as a film that will never go away.

Now I'm done.

Great numbers for a big new release again. Social Network is a very good movie. But i gotta say Inception is just mindblowing and constructed with such complexity and yet you still understand it. Inception is a masterpiece and it deserves to win best picture award at the academy not TSN

I don't see it though. They use digital cameras and the image becomes dull and lifeless. What's the point when Inception offers the traditional 35mm with Nolan behind the camera.

The Social Network is a work of art. Fantastic to see these high sales numbers for Blu, without Digi or DVD. But then again, set a brand-new release at $16.99....sales are gonna come!!

I think The Social Network will stay on the radar of film nerds, and perhaps more importantly to the longevity of a movie, the critics (read: film nerds who have been published) will continue talking about The Social Network, much more so than Inception. Substance over flash will always win in the long run, even if the flash is directed by someone as capable as Christopher Nolan.

When I think back to watching Inception, I can remember bendy cities and zero gravity fight scenes, but couldn't tell you the characters names, or much less why I should care about them. The Social Network, I remember the characters, the dialog, and the music, and that's what (I hope) counts in the long run.

Count me in on the "likes" subject.

Watched Inception a second time, will not watch it again. Under developed characters and poorly written dialogue. Again, full of the sort of ideas that college age kids find profound. I understand its appeal to the 18-24 demographic.

Both INCEPTION and THE SOCIAL NETWORK are great films and I'm excited to see them both doing so well on blu. I'm actually the type of consumer who likes to get the most bang for his buck; I prefer BD (obviously), but tend to opt for the combo packages with DVD or DVD and Digital Copy when given the choice. The price increase is minimal for the added content, making it really economical in my opinion. In any event, as great as INCEPTION and THE SOCIAL NETWORK both are, I'd like to see THE FIGHTER win Best Picture, though at this point, that's probably a long shot.

"David Fincher's story of the birth of Facebook got 45% of its total disc sales from the high-definition release (a record for a BD with no DVD or digital copy). "

I was suprised when the percentages came out and Piranha had 47% and according to Blu-ray.com it was a single disc. I Guess Piranha has the record vice The Social Network.

@Wdm81: The Other Guys BD/DVD/Digital Copy combo was at $14.99 and the BD only release was $12.99 on Amazon (since then, prices have come up to $24.99 and $13.99 respectively), that should explain the spike in sales.
