Avatar was the biggest film of the year and is still in theaters around the country despite the fact that it recently came out on home video. I mentioned yesterday that the Avatar Blu-ray disc was the best selling Blu-ray film ever in the US.
Today the studio behind Avatar, 20th Century Fox, has announced that Avatar is also the best selling Blu-ray movie in the UK. The launch of Avatar on Blu-ray saw the biggest first day sales ever in the UK.
Avatar sold 222,824 copies on the first day it was available in the UK. The previous record for Blu-ray sales was held by The Dark Knight, which took a week to sell near the day one sales number of Avatar.
