Lord of the Rings DVD a Smash...

Ireland got the first instalment of the Lord Of The Rings series on Tuesday with the biggest one-day sale for a DVD in the UK and Ireland, but just by a whisker...

Figures showed:

Lord Of The Rings: The Fellowship Of The Ring already a box office smash sold 1.27 million copies in its first day on the shelves yesterday in the UK alone.

Harry Potter And The Philosopher's Stone shifted 1.25 million copies when it was released earlier this year, and 1.6 million by the end of the first week.

Many stores around Ireland and the UK opened early with queues forming outside a number of them especially in London Tens of thousands of people had pre-ordered copies of the film.

A spokesman for the video's distributor said: "This was a particularly remarkable achievement in view of the Tuesday release date for Lord Of The Rings, instead of the more usual weekend release date for video and DVD titles. All major store groups have reported unprecedented demand for the title and with the heaviest trading days of the week still to go, Lord of the Rings is being widely tipped to be the biggest video and DVD release of all time."

The film stars Cate Blanchett, Liv Tyler, Sean Bean, Sir Ian McKellen and Sir Ian Holm.

It is the first of a trilogy of films based on JRR Tolkien's books.

The DVD version has a preview trailer giving fans a taster of the second, The Two Towers, which arrives on the big screen later this year.
