‘The Dark Knight’ Tops 2008 DVD Sales Charts
The Hollywood Reporter says sales are so brisk on The Dark Knight DVD in both standard and Blu-ray format that it will top the sales charts for both categories when the books for 2008 are closed.
The DVD sold in excess of 10 million discs after one week in stores according to Warner Home Video. Add in rental dealer sales, the number pushes 13.5 million worldwide which also includes 1.7 million in Blu-ray sales.
The discs that came with digital copy activation codes led to 300,000 copies legally downloaded to computers.
The disc will surpass the year’s current leader, Iron Man, next week according to analysts.
The Dark Knight also eclipsed Wanted as the number one video rental for the week ending December 14.
