Kong to be king of DVD sales

April 4th, 2006 · No Comments


Will Kong topple Harry Potter as the biggest DVD release of the year? In its first week of sales in the US, the big ape shifted 6.5 million discs. A new record for Universal, it prompted Prez Craig Kornblau to herald the film as “one of Universal’s biggest and most successful cinematic triumphs ever.”
King Kong was subject to a special global promotional deal between Universal and Toshiba which makes an release of the movie inevitable. A Toshiba insider even hinted that the title will appear in dual format, one side HD DVD the other standard DVD.
Kong goes on sale in the UK on April 10.
