Default Iron Man blasts out on Blu-ray - Video Business

videobusiness.com/article/CA6602928.html?desc=topstory - Can't link it because I'm new, sorry.

"Iron Man is enjoying superhero Blu-ray Disc strength, tracking as the top format debut to date at Best Buy and other retailers.

An average of about 20% of Iron Manís total unit sales are on Blu-ray, according to retail sources, though in some instances, its share goes as high as 50%. By comparison, the Blu-ray portion for many recent popular titles, including I Am Legend, logged about 9% of sales in the format, according to Adams Media Research.

One industry source said Iron Man Blu-ray sales range from 10% to 30% of the titleís total sales, varying by retailer. In some isolated cases, including at retailers Amazon.com and DeepDiscount.com, Iron Manís Blu-ray version is selling more briskly than one or more of the filmís standard DVD SKUs."

Good news for sure! Can't wait to see the numbers! Also I wonder if the I AM Legend 9% is only Blu or is that for both HD formats?

Come on dude.. 300K would be a failure. 400-600K is very doable and would show nice growth. Anything over 600K would be phenominal. Geez dude.. most studios would probably be happy to move 2 million copies of a typical DVD release in the first week.

<edit>
Oh its sarcasm... it can be difficult to tell when people say things sarcastically that we'd well expect them to say in all seriousness. Please pardon me.

20% would be extremely promising. That would mean Iron Man could have sold 750,000 copies possibly? The percentage can't be that high...can it?
