The mantle of most popular Aramaic-language DVD of the year already looks to be in the bag, after Mel Gibson's The Passion of The Christ sold 2.4m copies by noon yesterday, the first day of its American release. Industry analysts are expecting to receive figures for the first full day of sales late on Wednesday.
Most popular Aramaic-language DVD of the year. Wow!
UPDATE: But talking fish are more popular still. Oh well.
