I think they are stretching it a bit with the "chances of shortage" ploy.

The two stores I've been to still had hundreds of copies and this is two days after release. Just slick marketing to try and create a perception of buy now as you may not be able to find it later.

Wow, with so many copies in circulation, these things should be hitting the second-hand shops any day now. I'll wait a bit and pick one up for about $7 a few weeks down the road.

Actually, that means .001% of the population has the movie, and they are selling them all on eBay at inflated prices.
8 million copies, US pop est is ~290M so actually both of you are wrong it's about ~2.75%. Considering I think the stat is still about 3 people/household (couldn't easily find the #of households in the US) that means roughly 8% of the households have a copy of Finding Nemo now

Unless of course, everyone was like Lucian . . .

So divide by 8 . . .

3 carry the 3 . . .

then . . . oh . . . wait . . . damn . . .

Well . . . a lower percentage anyway . . .

Looks like this is correct the math day.

8 million sold but the thread you posted to was how many DVD would be sold first day/week.

As 80 percent sold were DVD - 20 percent vhs that means

6.4 million copies DVDs sold.

Nice estimate - ya beat mine. Hopefully they will report full sales for the week.

I knew this was coming...this was a HUGE movie this summer loved by everyone. Hell, even people my age (early 20s) loved it.

Picked it up as a blind buy and really enjoyed it. Funny movie, geared towards adults in many scenes.

I heard from the news that they're having shortage problem in keeping up with the demand on the DVD. It would be nice if they stop making them...then maybe my collection is worth something

"Disney had a big fish story to tell Wednesday as its Buena Vista Home Entertainment division reported that eight million VHS and DVD copies of Finding Nemo were sold on the first day on the shelves, representing $150 million in revenue. The figure far surpassed the previous record holder, Columbia TriStar's Spider-Man, which sold 7 million copies on its first day. The previous record for an animated film was Disney/Pixar's Monsters, Inc., which moved 5 million copies on its first day. " (imdb.com)

That should clear up the confusion regarding the all time sales records.
