I hope this isn't the case. I was so unhappy when it turned out the film's opening weekend had been overestimated.

I think it just must be a glitch. The last 4 weeks have all reported much higher and certainly by Canadian numbers that number doesn't make sense (BR sells between 32-35$ here, I assume in the US it's somewhere around 30$). I can see them inflating the number by a COUPLE million. Not by 20%. I'm gonna go with the previous numbers being legit.

For someone who commented that Love Love isn't feature on their BD, I just viewed my Australian BD and the song is on it.

Also nice to see they fix special effect in some part such as when the submarine crashed on the beach. It looks better on BD. Mystique's colour is darker, but too bad her hair seems to be orange !

Finally got to see this on BD, it really is a superb movie and I cant believe it wasnt more successful, hopefully the DVD/BD sales remain strong and we get a sequel soon as there is so much they can do with it.

I really want to see a threat so big Charles and Erik have to unite their teams and we could get stuff like them building Cerebro together, Beast making the X-Jet and Mystique getting pregnant by Azazel. There is so much they could do with it and just seeing Fassbender as Magneto again is enough to get me excited.

the dvd is having pretty decent legs:

http://www.the-numbers.com/dvd/chart...y/thisweek.php

Thor is selling less already and Bridemaids is getting close to First Class sales by week

FC Dvd is almost close to the 20millions mark

Lets see what happens during the rest of the year

I thought Thor was a juggernaut with the general audiences. How has Capt. America sold more copies in a shorter time span? I thought these two were neck and neck with the public?
Btw, I thought Capt. Am was just an OK movie.

Good, it needs to keep selling well so that a sequel is more likely.

I thought both CA and Thor were just okay movies. However, CA had stronger emotional moments IMO and perhaps the public agrees with me.

Thor Is the worst Marvel Studios film.It is very uneven film.Captain America was without doudt better film.Of course First Class beats them both.

You can also tell they are others like me who only have DVD players when you read about DVD sales.

Actually I thought Thor was the most even superhero movie of the summer because it was paced best and had the least obvious flaws. It's just that it didn't have a lot of standout parts for me so that the overall product felt very blah. There were more excitement and emotion in XFC and CA.

None of the superhero movies were juggernauts in the US. They couldn't even crack $200 million. Thor came the closest but still fell $20 million short... and that was with inflated 3D ticket prices.

Same, I thought Thor was the better movie by some way so i'm surprised to see Cap doing so much better on BD/DVD. Someone pointed out Thor seemed to resonate more with women who dont buy Bd/DVD as much as guys, this could be a factor.

I found CA:TFA to be significantly better than the other 3 superhero films this summer. Thor was good(needed more added in to it to flesh it out) and XM:FC was ok(still suffering from heavy-handedness and message mongering like the other X-Films) and Green Lantern was pretty damn lousy. I am totally not suprised how Cap has blown up and shot ahead of the others on DVD/Blu-Ray.

I actually didn't like Captain America at all. I've always found him to be a tremendously boring character and the movie did nothing to change my opinion of him. Because HE was dull, the movie suffered.

Don't mind me, I just like my characters to have a personality trait or two. Yknow, beyond "heroic".

So have I. I never really cared much for him in the comics. But what interested me about him in the movie was that they didn't take the easy way out and inject some stupid comedic personality to him. That's what GL did. They knew Hal Jordan was a stiff and that would be hard to make work in a film so they made him....well, Ryan Reynolds. With Cap, they actually made him a guy so sure of his own convictions that instead of allowing circumstances and the world to alter him(which happens in every movie) that he actually made the rest of the world conform to him. To me that alone was fascinating and something you almost never get to see so to me it was a breath of fresh air.

Very well said!

I too wasn't a CAP fan before the movie but now I'm definitely a fan and eagerly awaiting (hoping for) the sequel to that movie.

It's very hard to make the straightforward good guy appealing to todays audience who like bad boys, antiheroes, troubled souls, etc., but the moviemakers stood their ground.

I hope they keep doing so. It is very refreshing to see this sort of character portrayed so well.

Youíre proud that they didnít take the easy way out by injecting Steve Rogers with something to alter him and make him more appealing? Does anybody else see the irony of this post???

What appeals to me is not just that they stood their ground. They could easily have done that and still have it not work. What most impresses me is how they were able to make it work without compromising the character. For that I take my hat off to them. Because on paper that film shouldn't have worked.
