Casino Royale Sets DVD Record

Personally, Spike would have given the latest James Bond movie no more than three stars out of a maximum five; and certainly, not been so liberal with its rating (PG-13? When, surely, the torture scenes merited a tougher threshold). But obviously Spike is a lone voice .

Yesterday, it was announced that no other DVD had sold as many copies in the UK, during its first week, as Casino Royale. During those first seven days, the movie – starring Daniel Craig as Bond – some 1,622,852 copies ‘flew off the shelves’.

What’s more, almost 10,000 of these sales were in the new high-definition, Blu-ray Disc format.
