Movie Picture According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Star Wars Trilogy, the most anticipated DVD of the year, generated $115 million in worldwide sales during its first day in release Tuesday, but that figure from executives at 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment also includes sales of the "Star Wars Battlefront" video game.
As is typical with collectible DVD box sets, retailers believe that "Star Wars Trilogy" will have a long shelf life, anticipating additional sales during the holiday gift-giving season. Last week's top-selling and -renting DVD was Fox's Man on Fire, starring Denzel Washington, according to VideoScan and Video Store magazine, respectively. Man on Fire sold about 1.5 million combined DVD and VHS units during its first day on retail shelves Sept. 14, according to Fox.
