"AAAALLLVVVIIINNNN!" Yes, another sign that the apocalypse is upon us. The live action-animation feature Alvin and the Chipmunks made bank this Tuesday when it sold an estimated 2.6 million DVDs to become the fast selling DVD of the year. According to Variety, Dave and his rodent trio outpaced the sale of both the Enchanted DVD and the I Am Legend DVD.
The film grossed more than $350 million at the worldwide box office, making it one of the biggest theatrical hits of last year. The DVD is being promoted with a Get Munked mall tour. The live show has hit Chicago, Seattle, Minneapolis, San Francisco, Atlanta, St. Louis, San Diego and Salt Lake City.
A second Alvin and the Chipmunks is currently in the works, and will most likely focus on the Chipmunks' sisters.
