'Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen' Dominates DVD and Blu-ray Charts

The Michael Bay sequel has sold over 7.5 million copies in just the first week.

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen With a home-video industry that badly needs a boost, some robots in disguise gave it just that. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen destroyed any and all competition on the home video charts this week, sweeping all three charts in its first week.

If a clean sweep wasn't enough, it only took a week for the Michael Bay film to become the highest-selling disc of the year, with a staggering 7.5 million copies sold in the first week. 1.2 million of those sales were in the Blu-ray format, making it the top-selling BD disc of the year to date. The film also set year-high marks with 2 million units sold in the first day of sales, with 500,000 of those units sold in the BD format.

The blockbuster faced hardly any competition this week, knocking last week's top seller and rental The Proposal down to second place on both charts, and the top-selling BD disc for the past two weeks, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, down to second place in BD sales also.

    The movie has one of the worst plots not in just movies, but in pretty much anything. Just because it's based on an 80's cartoon doesn't excuse it for having a terrible plot. It could've been great, but Bay is a terrible director, basing a movie called Transformers on a boy's growth to becoming a man. Those were Bay's own words.

    u guys have strong points
    plus Michael Bay intended the movie to be silly
    I didnt even count on them making the sequel b/c what more of the story could they tell and it's based on a toy for crying out loud

    let's face it: summer flicks are never safe from criticism

    Revenge of the Fallen could have done without the juvenile humor, but it amuses me to hear all the complaints about plot when the entire premise is based off a 80's cartoon.
