I am starting a new fresh thread, since I am planning to put a number of charts here in the first post.

Also please note that there is some problem with the-numbers's total sales for various film. They consistently keep going down.For example, the total sales for these films after adding weekly total should be:TF3: 2,663,000Thor: 1,387,000FF: 1,664,000

I am putting all the data together for the last 6 months (with some help). Let me get back to you after a while.

Wow! Incredible start for DH2!We have the ratios for this week. Let's look at some of the titles:DH2 : 100.00Cars 2: 13.88Pirates 4: 6.35Captain America: 5.18HP 1-8: 4.24Green lantern: 2.37FF: 1.70TF3: 1.69Let's take cars as comparison point. Now the second week drop for major Blu-Ray releases (with normal Tuesday release) this year.Captain America: 78.44%Pirates 4: 76.47%Fast Five: 72.78%Thor: 73.21%Bridesmaids: 73.85%Even if we use 80% for Cars 2 (probably worst case scenario), it still sold more than 350k copies this week.Now using the 13.88% ratio, DH2 sold approximately 2.54 million copies! And the approx 110k sales from HP 1-8 boxset should count towards each of the movies, so total sales stand at a staggering 2.65 million.Also when calculating sales for other movies with 2.54 million as 100.00, the figures are consistent with what was expected, if not a little lower. So chances are that DH2 sold even more!Avatar's record was 2.7 million copies. DH2 may have beaten that! But we will need to hear from official sources.

And what's more, Avatar debuted on Thursday while DH2 on Friday. That makes DH2's sales even more impressive.
