Brangelina Twins Sell Big!

Brangelina Twins Sell Big!

This just in from Women’s Wear Daily! Not surprisingly, the exclusive photos of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s newborn twins, Knox Leon and Vivienne Marcheline, sold big. How big? 2.6 million copies big!

According to the trade journal, “The issue is the biggest seller in seven years, and is the fourth highest newsstand seller in the magazine’s 35-year history, behind the Sept. 11 issue (4.1 million single copies), the issue covering Princess Diana’s death (3 million) and the one covering the death of John F. Kennedy Jr. (2.8 million). The June 19, 2006 issue with the exclusive baby pictures of Brad and Angelina’s first daughter, Shiloh, moved 2.2 million newsstand copies (perhaps the extra Pitt-Jolie baby provided a bigger draw this time).”

What will happen if Brad & Angie have triplets? To read the full report, visit WWD.com.

  • briseis

    Wow. Jared, that was fast! Thanks for the quick response to the e-mail! Thank you for the new positive thread.

    Good morning, JP fans! Well, what happened to that article about the twins’ People mag not doing well? Ha ha ha! Such liars, who would write anything, even if it was untrue, just to put the JPs down. Jealousy is such a beeyotch, ain’t it?

  • Jolie-Pitts rules

    A total of 2.6 million copies. That’s how many newsstand issues of People with the exclusive photos of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s newborn twins, Knox Leon and Vivienne Marcheline, have sold, according to sources close to the magazine, citing early sales estimates for the issue. People and Hello reportedly snatched up the exclusive baby photos for a wallet-busting $14 million, the cost split between the two in some manner. People scored the domestic rights for the images; Hello bought the international ones.

    The issue is the biggest seller in seven years, and is the fourth highest newsstand seller in the magazine’s 35-year history, behind the Sept. 11 issue (4.1 million single copies), the issue covering Princess Diana’s death (3 million) and the one covering the death of John F. Kennedy Jr. (2.8 million). The June 19, 2006 issue with the exclusive baby pictures of Brad and Angelina’s first daughter, Shiloh, moved 2.2 million newsstand copies (perhaps the extra Pitt-Jolie baby provided a bigger draw this time).]

    The baby photos also helped People extend its online reach to record levels. People.com recorded a record 6 million unique visitors for the first 24 hours the cover went online. Comparatively, people.com usually averages around 8.8 million uniques a month, according to figures from Comscore Media Metrix. What will happen if Pitt and Jolie have triplets?

    Thanks Jared!!!

    Hello to all JP friends :-)

    Leetle UN–I posted it at the last thread didn’t you see it? If you can’t find it I’ll post it again :-)

  • LOVEFORFOUR

    People clearly wanted to see the offspring of two gorgeous people knowing that Brad and Ange’s hotness is electrifying.

    Wonderful news! It might have sold even more if it hadn’t been so hard to find. I got 6 copies!!!

    Thanks Jared.

  • mike

    Love them…

  • LOVEFORFOUR

    Oh yeah instead of saying first I forgot to say , Last!!!

  • vidstr1

    go brad and angie!

  • Halli

    Actually Helena, that is good. The most well known and wealthiest magazine like Vogue, average about 1 million a year. People has doubled that even more so and you better believe their advertisers paid probably double just to get into that issue. The online viewership doesn’t hurt either.

  • melissa

    It did sell, but People did not get the return on their investment, they did not recoup the 14 million dollars paid, this magazine was on the shelf two days early and stayed on the shelf for three weeks, so actually this was not as much of a success as the folks at People were hoping for.

  • Jill

    I looked at the pictures and then I put it right back on the shelf. I would never spend my money on such useless crap.

  • Mondo Bongo!

    Great News~

  • @ Melissa

    Melissa,,
    Yeah, I had read (a couple of weeks ago I think) that even though the magazine did sell well….it fell well short of what was projected….that the magazines did not get the return on their investment…not even close. Why isn’t JJ mentioning that part?

  • the real tita

    #1: Geez, you freaking break your neck trying to get here ahead of us and that’s what you have to say? What a doofus!

    ***yay, new thread and it’s designed to get the trolls tearing their last tuft of hair out…such fun!

    Thanks, Jared. Love that the Peeps mag has made their money back when everybody else was expecting a loss in revenue but a rise in prestige. Now they get both. Brangelina rules and they will not forget it as easily. Who knows, with the ads and continued sales, they may even see profit?

    I bought Hello mag but would love the People mag as well.Wish I lived in the US.They increased the price by $0.50 and people still bought the copy and its still selling very well.When do we get the final numbers.

    l Miss Angelina can’t believe we haven’t seen her for 3 months.She said she’ll go away for a couple of months and she staying true to her words.Guess we’ll see her the beginning of October.

  • wow….

    The magazine selling well proves nothing except that there are way too many lifeless people who are utterly obsessed with people that they don’t even know. Seriously, who gives a shit about Brangelina’s invitro babies? People have babies everyday and just because these two freaks spawned them, it makes them so special that 2.6 million magazines are sold?!

    @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@
    Why don’t you provide a link. All you’re saying is hearsay.

  • the real tita

    #26: You and Melissa better forget what your espousing. They projected a loss, idiot! They didn’t think they’d be able to recoup the money. It was the prestige they were after as the mag to the stars. Go ahead and calculate all you want but Peeps will bow down to Brad and Angie as one of the best sellers (even with the price increase) with their progenies. Who else can top them right now? What baby pic sold the most?

    The ads and the rise in subscription weren’t even mentioned. Suck it and weep, losers!

    The numbers speak for themselves. Jolie-Pitt fever is on the up, up, up!

    You are one of those who gives a shit. The proof is that you’re here discussing them. Or are you here just because you are a vile hater, hating on people you don’t know?????????

  • @ the real tita

    the real tita,
    Get a grip you stupid lifeless freak. LOL

    #24: will you loser try to find another name and stop using the name of a real fan? Why do you do this? Too scared to show yourself?

  • an oldie

    As long as it sold more copies than the usual, it’s considered a success. As for those who said People didn’t make back their money, you are wrong. The $14M is a sum paid by both People and Hello, not just People alone.

  • Jill

    #24 isn’t me, folks. But you already knew that. Only Jill is Jill.

    Jared, you do know you just ruined Shitzy’s day posting this thread, don’t you? ROTFLMBAO!

    ————–
    Where do you live? In my country, the magazines are already sold out the very first day of release. And, unfortunately for me, I still haven’t got my own copy/copies. They had to reorder in order to supply the demand. Sad, sad, sad.

  • sharon

    This is great. More power to Jolie-Pitts. People Magazine and Hello magazine split $14 Million. People magazine actually paid $7 Million and sold 2.6 million copies which is total $11.7 million (2.6m x 4.50/copy). People magazine got their money back already.

  • crabbie

    9/11 is bigger than Brad and Angie’s twins? What the fuck?

  • remember da truth

    Melissa, JJ isn’t saying that because it’s not true!! People didn’t project more than what it got. And the return on investment — they said way back during the bidding wars that NO ONE gets back dollar for dollar, but the publicity and bragging rights is advertising money well worth spending.

    Getting almost as many people to come to the site in 24 hours as come in a month?!?! Yeah, that’s return on investment, baby!!!

  • the real tita

    #37: ooooohhh, did I hurt you? Can’t even put your own name on your post? How lame! Lammmmme, lammmmmmme….coward!

  • soopx

    Love this Beautiful Family,Thanks Jared.

  • What’s to hate on?

    #26, I doubt anybody is hating on Brangelina, it seems like that person is talking about the over obsessed fans, not Brad and Angie themselves. You are obviously one these obsessed people. So by all means, put down your copy of Catcher and the Rye, crawl out of the basement and realize that the world is bigger than Brangelina. If you do that, you may actually meet a real person, instead of your fellow cyber internet Brangelina stalkers.

  • passing through

    Those are great numbers…and the mag’s still on newsstands through Aug 25. So everybody run out and buy another 10 copies!
