It would be interesting to know how long most movies officially run, for comparison.

Most movies nowadays stay in theaters for less than 8 weeks. Over time we're seeing movies leave theater and the theater-to-dvd turnaround becoming shorter and shorter. This is mainly due to Hollywood realizing the money is in dvd sales and rentals. They make something like close to 50% of their revenue on dvd sales/rentals.

Sandra deserves everything she has coming to her. A gorgeous, multi-talented actress who you'd rarely find in the tabloids. Congrats on a new record!

It's a really great movie. One of the best I've seen in a while.

Brian's Song was so sad but it was a great movie and was based on a true story like The Blind Side. I don't usually like to watch sad movies but they were good.

I had a feeling Avatar would be the best selling DVD since it did so well in theaters. But, didn't expect Toy Story GET HIGHEST GROSSING MOVIE, NICE.

Honestly, I would've expected it to be the other way around. With Avatar running a long time in 2010 as well, plus having the re-release. And just how huge the movie was. Though, I guess it just wasn't factored into the numbers they released due to it actually being a 2009 release. That being said though, if you do count what Avatar did at the box office in 2010, it ranks right up there with Toy Story 3 and possibly surpasses it just a bit.

I also expect that Toy Story 3 and Avatar race in the DVD section was pretty close as well considering how long Toy Story 3 has stayed in the Top 10 charts.

Yeah, but Toy Story is a classic, Avatar is not.
