MARVEL'S THE AVENGERS Breaks Records As It Tops DVD And Blu-Ray Sales Charts

Marvel's The Avengers earned over $623 million in North America when it was released back in May, so it should perhaps come as no surprise to learn that the film is now dominating DVD and Blu-ray sales! Read on for details.


According to Home Media Magazine, Joss Whedon's superhero ensemble has topped both the Nielsen VideoScan First Alert chart (which keeps track of overall disc sales), and the Blu-ray specific sales chart as well. Marvel's previous movies also benefited as THOR moved up in the charts to #8, Captain America: The First Avengers to #13, Iron Man 2 to #14, The Incredible Hulk to #19, and Iron Man to #23. All five also ended up in the top 20 list on the Blu-ray chart. 72% of sales came from Blu-ray; a record high for a film released simultaneously on that format and DVD (perhaps proof that the latter is nearing the end of its days). 23% of consumers forked out a little extra for the more expensive 3D version. Coming in at #2 was animated feature, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns - Part 1. A strong start, but Marvel's The Avengers actually sold 34 times as many copies! Ouch.






Marvel Studios presents in association with Paramount Pictures Marvel’s The Avengers--the super hero team up of a lifetime, featuring iconic Marvel super heroes Iron Man, the Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye and Black Widow. When an unexpected enemy emerges that threatens global safety and security, Nick Fury, Director of the international peacekeeping agency known as S.H.I.E.L.D., finds himself in need of a team to pull the world back from the brink of disaster. Spanning the globe, a daring recruitment effort begins.
