Avatar toppled Blu-ray sales after its release on DVD as well as becoming the most pirated Blu-ray and DVD. This is no surprise at all, considering the huge success of this film. The budget was $237 million and as of now has made gross revenue of $2,728,037,195. That huge success from the epic kick ass film that made me want to hug a tree, paint myself blue and despise the empire building ways of my country.
Anyway, with more than 400,000 Blu-ray torrent downloads within 4 days of its Blu-ray/DVD release the majority of the downloads were from the UK and Australia, where the Blu-ray/DVD release was a few days later than in North America.
This is one record that makes me smile, and whoever says the $2billion + that has come in for this film is not enough because of P2P file sharing can eat shit and die. They make a kick ass movie, and have become even richer than they were before, and people all over the world that wanted to check out without paying got to experience one of the coolest movies in a long time, win win.
