Red Dog the sixth highest selling DVD of all time
Red Dog, starring Josh Lucas and Rachel Taylor, became the sixth biggest DVD title in Australia after Avatar, Finding Nemo, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Lord of the Rings: Two Towers and Shrek 2.
Red Dog is actually still playing in some cinemas, 19 weeks after it was first released.
It has gone on to claim $21.3m to date at the Australia box office – the eighth highest grossing Australian film.
“We are absolutely thrilled with the sales results of Red Dog. After its phenomenal impact at the cinemas – and it’s still playing – we knew Australians had connected with the movie, and hoped they’d want to enjoy it a second or third time around,” said Roadshow Entertainment managing director Chris Chard.
The RSPCA is also benefitting from the sales of Red Dog on DVD and receiving $1 from every DVD sold in Coles.
