Mel Gibson's controversial movie hit The Passion Of The Christ is breaking DVD records in America after surpassing sales of the Lord Of The Rings trilogy.

The film has reportedly sold nearly nine million copies during its first week in stores.

This means the movie now holds the record for the best debut week ever for a live-action video.

Only animated smash Finding Nemo had a better opening week after it sold eight million copies in its first day alone.
