Now this is what we call cleaning up your environment.

Already the biggest move ever, James Cameron's Avatar is now smashing home video records, becoming the year's top-selling title after just four days in release.

Fox reports that the blue-man group has sold a whopping 4 million copies on DVD and 2.7 million on Blu-ray (making Avatar the high-def format's fastest-selling release ever) since hitting stores on Earth Day, for a grand total of 6.7 million units, topping the previous mark of 6.5 million set by New Moon and banking a cool $130 million.

That's a pretty astounding number considering the Avatar disc was released in 2-D without any bonus features. Many fans indicated they would boycott the movie until a presumed multidisc 3-D version comes out next year, after Cameron and Fox reissue the film with six minutes of new footage.

That's also 130 million more reasons to get cranking on a sequel.
