    Good job, ROTF... Here's hoping it breaks some records.

    EDIT: An update... Official figures are in.

    https://michaelbay.com/newsblog/newsblog.html

    It has sold through 7.5 million DVDs and Blurays in the first week.

    It sold 2 million on DVD the first day, and 500k on Bluray the first day for a total of 2.5 mil on day 1.

    Just wanted to update my previous post here with more accurate news.

    GOOD JOB ROTF!!! BRING ON TF3!

    Sorry for the double thread post... Something seemed wrong with the site... Please delete one.

    Just another note... Didn't TF1 sell 3 million in one week? Selling 4 million in one day is insanely awesome.

    Sorry again.

    I don't know. 4 million in one day is astounding. Especially since it got trash reviews at the B.O.

    I loved the movie personally, and bought it both on DVD and Bluray (IMAX versions.)

    the movie is epic. How many people do you think bought the bluray version and sat there going through all the bot scenes, frame by frame :p

    The movie looks fantastic on Bluray. Especially the IMAX scenes, which look very crisp.

    I did find myself slowmoing a few scenes.

    Namely to try and find R2D2, and seeing how some of the bots transform.

    Wow! That's 80 mill in one day with all DVD's priced at $20.00. I hated the movie personally, but I bought it on blu ray, it's my first blu ray! I have a ps3 on the way! Woo Hoo!

    Awesome... Not only is ROTF the highest grossing movie of the year, it is also highest selling DVD of the year already.

    I bet this will sell some Bluray players as well.

    EDIT: Oh and forgot to add... BRING ON TF3. New combiner, can we have it?

    lol, you bought it twice?

    And even people who hated it are buying it. I guess that explains the big numbers.

    I'll probably get it too, in due course.

    You know people who hated it are buying it.

    In all honesty though, when I saw this in theatres, I saw an old couple there (easily in their 70's.) This goes to show how popular TF is getting. It has gone mainstream.

    A month back, I was at a local Walmart, and I saw this old lady looking at the HDTV, checking out what movie was on the screen she seemed like she wanted to know what it was. As soon as she saw Scorponok jump through the sand at Tyrese and the other dude's running, she said "Oh, now I know what this is." Too cool.

    I bet this ends up being the best selling Bluray for awhile too.

    Not bad for a 1/4 star movie Roger Ebert, so suck it. Noone can stop the oncoming juggernaut that is ROTF!

    I guess we're still all a bunch of de-evolved idiots, aren't we Ebert?

    I know my walmart was sold out of the Dvd Imax version, so I bought the Blue Ray version instead. I will just have to watch it on my computer for awhile.

    Well it's seems to have done really well at least with the Blu Ray copy. Three WalMarts by me have sold out of their first batch of the BDs. That $20 price tag and the Imax footage has gone over very well.

    Wasn't sold out at my Walmart, but getting my Blue-ray Imax version for $19 something before tax was a nice surprise.
