The Passion of the Christ: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ sold nearly 2.5 million DVD and VHS units to consumers during its first 12 hours on retail shelves Tuesday, according to distributor 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment.

Fox executives who are closely following retail trends surrounding the faith-based title said that most consumers are buying multiple copies, with the average being 1.8 copies. That initial 12-hour sales figure puts "The Passion" on pace to possibly meet initial sales records for the home video industry held by the likes of DreamWorks Home Entertainment's animated Shrek and the Disney/Pixar animated feature Finding Nemo, both of which topped 6 million DVD units sold through to consumers during their first three days in release.
