  Nemo smashes DVD and video record
Updated 07 November 2003, 14.42
Finding Nemo has broken DVD records
Finding Nemo has become the fastest selling DVD and video of all time after being released in shops in the US.

The Pixar animated movie has topped the box office charts in the UK for weeks, and it seems US fans can't get enough of it either.

It sold more than eight million copies on the first day it was in US shops, beating the record held by Spider-Man.

Finding Nemo was made by the people behind Toy Story and Monsters Inc, and is about a fish's search for his son.

Finding Nemo took almost $340m (200m) at cinemas in the US and Canada, making it more popular than huge films like Pirates of the Caribbean, The Matrix Reloaded and Bruce Almighty.

Bob Chapek, head of Disney's Buena Vista Home Entertainment group, said some shops had sold three times as many copies as they expected.
