Seems like a lot of ladies (and gentlemen) are getting R-Patz for Christmas.
Although it only arrived in stores on Friday at midnight, Twihards purchased 3 million DVDs and Blu-ray discs of Eclipse in just two days.
The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, Knight and Day and Toy Story 3 followed in sales, but only sold about 30% as many units as Eclipse.

Is that really the best idea when you owe $14 million to the IRS???
Nicolas Cage has abruptly pulled out of Joel Schumacher's new thriller Trespass, just two weeks before filming was scheduled to start.
And the worst part? He left the cast and crew in the lurch to go on vacation - in the Bahamas!
Cage had already made drastic changes to the production when he requested that he switch characters, going from playing the role of Nicole Kidman's husband to playing the leader of a group of kidnappers.
Now that he's quit the project, he's left producers scrambling to find a new star in less than two weeks. If they can't find a suitable replacement, insiders believe that the movie has a possibility of being scrapped.
So what was Nic thinking?? Sources say that he's burnt out from doing back-to-back movies with Disney and has been on a grueling promotional tour for Sorcerer’s Apprentice.
That still doesn't make it okay to leave an entire cast and crew wondering if they still have a job!
Tsk tsk, Nic.

Chris Nolan's mind-bending thriller Inception starring Leonardo DiCaprio took the top spot at the box office this weekend, raking in over $60 million!
Dan Fellman of Warner Bros. commented that Nolan is "a star for us. It's clear there's no kind of movie he can't make, and make well."
This is also proves that 2-D movies with a smart plot can still open to blockbuster numbers, which is good news for the movie industry. Imax's Greg Foster adds, "and people see Chris' movies more than once. We're not moving this out of theaters anytime soon."
And as for Leo, this is officially his best debut ever. It's already made more than 2008's Blood Diamond!
Despicable Me came in 2nd while The Sorcerer's Apprentice brought in a disappointing $17 million at 3rd place. Sucks for Nicolas Cage!
What did U see this weekend?

This one might not be a big seller!
Disney is offering "buy one get one free" tickets for The Sorcerer's Apprentice when purchasing tickets in advance. Considering how much it costs for a family to go to the movies, it'll probably serve them well.
The film is likely to gross between $30-$35 million in the U.S. and Canada by Sunday, which is a huge loss. It cost $150 million to produce.
"We have been doing a lot of experimentation with social media and this is an opportunity to be on the cutting edge," said Disney spokesman John Nicoletti, who didn't want to admit the reason was because their movie is set to bomb.
