After a phenomenal run at the worldwide box office, Casino Royale‘s success has now moved from movie tickets to DVD sales.
Reuters reports that Daniel Craig’s debut James Bond 007 film quickly soared to the #1 spot for DVD sales in the US after being released on 13 March. The film pushed Borat to the #3 position on the Nielsen VideoScan’s First Alert sales chart, while The Holiday opened in the #2 position.
For rentals, Casino Royale was again in the top spot; generating an estimated $9.2 million in revenue. The Holiday opened in the #3 position with $8 million.
Additionally, the Casino Royale Blu-ray disc outsold its nearest competition, The Departed, by 9-to-1. The Bond film is now the #2 Blu-ray seller since the format’s inception in June.
