Star Wars Widescreen DVD Sales Strong!
Thu, September 23, 2004
The Digital Bits has reported on the sales numbers of the Star Wars DVDs, and had this to say.
On an interesting side note, DVD producer Van Ling was also on hand, and let us know that early numbers indicate that some 80% of the first day sales of the DVDs at Wal-Mart stores are the widescreen versions. Wal-Mart DVD sales, as you may know, are usually skewed heavily towards full frame. Hey… maybe people are FINALLY starting to figure out that movies like these should ALWAYS be seen in their original aspect ratio.
This is really great news!
