I haven't seen any numbers but I went to the local CC an hour after they opened on release day and they were out of the free kid's size basketballs they were giving away with purchase of each DVD. The clerk said that they gave away 200 basketballs. He also estimated about a hundred copies left and that they would probably sell out soon after.

edit:

Oh yeah the DVD was awesome. I never got a chance to see it in theaters, great blind buy.

Great, great blind buy. I loved the message of the film and the depth of the characters.

Pixar's work speaks for itself. But Di$ney owns The Incredibles, not Pixar as well as all the other films that Pixar created for Di$ney (ex. Toy Story, Finding Nemo, Monster Inc. etc.). That arrangement (i.e. no rights sharing) is the reason that the two groups are parting company.

Bought it blind too, off of Pixar's rep. This showed an incredible depth and surprising amounts of darkness. Has anybody read the graphic novel Marvels? I got real vibe of that during the lawsuit montage at the beginning. Wonder if it was an influence?

Another wonderful superhero movie, by someone you would never expect to do superheroes.

While you can't blame Pixar for wanting creative rights, you also can't blame Disney for wanting to protect themselves after the whole Roger Rabbit / Amblin fiasco.

I'll chime in as well. This is one fantastic DVD, top to bottom. I'm still going through the extras and I look forward to listening to the commentaries. And to boot, I think this is Pixar's best flick. Great blind buy.

Bought this blind, great decision.

Spoiler:
It was hilarious how Jack freaks out at the end when Syndrome is bringing him up to the plane.


Off to watch the 2nd disc now.

I kept meaning to see this in the theater, but somehow kept wanting to do something else.

Taking a longer BART trip than usual and going in blind tonight. Really looking forward to it from what I've read everywhere and heard.

Better ending (possible spoilers) would have been when the baby was shape shifting at the end, have him turn into Megatron. Then transform into the handgun and put a slug through Syndrome's head. The movie was violent enough that this would have been fine.

I never got a chance to see this on theater and just loved it after watching it on DVD last night. Best movie Pixar has done so far, looking forward on watching the special features on disc 2. This well be no doubt on my top ten list of best DVD for this year.

I thought the disc looked great too (maybe the best transfer I've ever seen), but I noticed something odd that looks like an artifact or something. At 57:07, just after Edna says "Do you know where he is" and they zoom in on Helen, the last frame or so of that shot of Helen looks blocky. Look at the bottom of her eyes especially. It's only a split second, and it could even be just one frame for all I know, but it looks strange. Did anyone else notice this?

Im surprised no one has mentioned this, but this is the first DVD where ALL of the material was anamorphic. Even the 4:3 material is anamorphic (pillarboxed on my HDTV)...it uses the "pan and scan" feature on 4:3 sets to crop the pillarboxes off. Its just so nice not having to reach for the TV remote to change aspect ratios when going through bonus material. If only more DVDs would be released this way.

From VideoETA

Pixar's The Incredibles lived up to its name when it debuted on DVD Tuesday selling over 5 million copies in its first day of release. The Disney co-production should easily top the charts in its first week of release as for comparison, last week, Ladder 49 topped the charts with about 3.5 million copies sold.

The all-time single day record for number of copies sold on a single day belongs to Spider-Man with over 7 million copies sold when it was released in 2002.

dvd sales information is hard to come by on the net for some reason... but i have read articles stating Finding Nemo sold 8 mill its first day and some saying Shrek 2 sold 11 mill. but that could be for the weekend. and sometimes they combine dvd and vhs sales... meh...

Well, let's put it this way. In a rare first, the IMDb is incorrect!

I blind bought it tonight at CC for $15 and got a free basketball. I also picked up Finding Nemo for $15. I won't be able to watch the Incredibles until tomorrow or Saturday, but I have high hopes after all the praise!

I'm in total agreement about "The Incredibles" and all the extras, but I also have to say that I think "Boundin'" is one of the best animated shorts I've ever seen. What a great package.

If you want, Finding Nemo is $12.99 at Best Buy this week. If you go back to CC by Saturday, you could get back $2.20 + Tax (110% PM).

While it looks and sounds nice, the movie was lacking. Easily the bottom of the pixar list so far.
