French b.o. hit 'Sticks' flies off shelves

More than 1 mil videos sold in two days

PARIS -- French consumers have given another warm welcome to Dany Boon's boxoffice record-breaker "Welcome to the Sticks," with the comedy selling more than 1 million DVD, Blu-ray and VHS copies in just two days.

Eight months after its release in Gallic theaters, "Sticks," complete with bonus tracks, sold 650,000 copies during its first day on store shelves Wednesday.

Fox Pathe Europa ordered 2.5 million copies of the DVD, and the stock already risks being cleaned out by early next week.
