Wolverine selling well on Blu-ray The new release X-Men Origins: Wolverine is selling well on Blu-ray, says 20th Century Fox, with over 20 percent of sales coming in the HD format. On average, Blu-rays account for 12.5 percent of all sales.
Although they would not give numbers, the studio said Wolverine was their best ever selling Blu-ray, beating out Quantum of Solace, which was released in March.

“Wolverine launched this summer [season] in theaters and is now doing the same for the holiday season in home entertainment,” added Simon Swart, executive VP/general manager at Fox. “Wolverine is Fox’s biggest selling Blu-ray ever.”

The studio also added that the movie's BD Live features were the most popular ever.

Well this was a no-brainer, seeing as I now have two Blu-Ray players in my home... HOWEVER, it did help that my copy from Wally World was the 3-Disc set that came with the Blu-Ray, DVD AND Digital copies of the movie for $23! Now that is a value anyone can appreciate and I'd assume that would help any Summer "blockbuster" achieve greater sales.

I'm kind of surprised by this as it wasn't that great of a movie, in my opinion.

Was it decent enough to buy? That's obviously up to the individuals who would pay for it. I'd personally say "Probably" considering Amazon has it for $22. Anymore than that and I'd have to back off until it dropped in price a bit.

And they fact that this movie was running rampant on the Internet almost three month before release seems to have done nothing for sales if they are bragging about it.

I enjoyed it. But no single movie averaging only 1.5-2 hours is worth $20-$30 for me. I'll wait a year for the price to come down or buy it used. Blu ray seems to be gaining momentum though.
