Planet Earth HD DVD and Blu-ray sales soaring
You remember Discovery's highly touted show Planet Earth right? This is one nature show that is really worth watching, thanks to stunning camera work. Well, the show was ported over to both of the competing high-def discs - HD DVD and Blu-ray - and according to Warner Home Video, it has pulled in more money than any other title. This $70 box set has generated $3.2 million dollars since April 24, which easily surpasses Scorsese's The Departed (2.8 million). Apparently, consumers want high-def media and are willing to spend good money it; maybe the fact that a BBC-created show is topping Hollywood says something about how important quality is.
