'Avengers' Assemble at Best Buy WE 05/06/12

1 May, 2012
By: John Latchem


AvengersDiscs.jpg

With the theatrical debut of the new Avengers movie, Best Buy gave fans a chance to catch up by putting all five of the precursor films on Blu-ray for sale.

The Incredible Hulk was $9.99, Iron Man and Iron Man 2 were $14.99 each, and Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger were $24.99 each for the 3D versions and $19.99 for the combo packs. Shoppers could save an additional $5 with an Upgrade & Save coupon for trading in a used DVD.

In addition, Best Buy offered $8 Movie Cash coupons for the new movie with copies of DVDs of the “Avengers” animated series, sold at $11.99 each.

Target built a sales promotion around Disney titles that are heading back into “The Vault,” with Bambi and Beauty and the Beast offered at $14.99 on DVD and $19.99 on Blu-ray, plus an additional $5 savings when either title was purchased with another selected Disney classic (offered at the same prices) on DVD or Blu-ray, such as Dumbo, Lady and the Tramp, The Lion King or The Muppets.

Projections: Charts Ready to Go 'Haywire'

7 May, 2012
By: John Latchem

Haywire.jpg

A slow trickle of major new releases to start the second quarter makes for some unpredictable positioning on the charts, as dependable hits and strong catalog titles continue to stick around.

The May 5 new releases trying to make a splash include Lionsgate’s Haywire ($18.9 million at the domestic box office), an actioner featuring MMA star Gina Carano; Warner’s Joyful Noise ($30.93 million); and New Year’s Eve ($54.5 million), also from Warner.

Of the three, New Year’s Eve seems to have the advantage in retail placement.




Projected Top 3 Sellers for Week Ending 5/6/2012



1 New Year's Eve Warner New

2 Haywire Lionsgate New

3 Joyful Noise Warner

HMM Nielsen Videoscan First Alert Sales Report Week Ending 05/06/12

'Joyful Noise' Overpowers 'New Year’s Eve' for Top Sales Spot

9 May, 2012
By: Thomas K. Arnold

JoyfulNoise.jpg
Joyful Noise

Three new theatrical releases took the three top spots on the national home video sales charts for the week ended May 6, led by Warner Home Video’s Joyful Noise, a musical comedy with Dolly Parton and Queen Latifah that grossed just more than $30 million at the box office.

The No. 2 spot on the Nielsen VideoScan First Alert sales chart — which tracks total disc sales, DVD and Blu-ray Disc combined — went to another Warner-distributed title, New Year’s Eve, a romantic comedy with an ensemble cast of past and present hotties, from Michelle Pfeiffer, Halle Berry and Alyssa Milano to Jessica Biel and Zac Efron, that earned $54.5 million in U.S. theaters.

Lionsgate’s Haywire, an actioner with an $18.9 million theatrical track record, debuted at No. 3 on First Alert but bowed at No. 1 on both Nielsen’s dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart and Home Media Magazine’s rental chart.

The victory on the Blu-ray Disc chart was due to the fact that nearly half of total unit sales were on Blu-ray, as opposed to 23% for Joyful Noise and just 19% for New Year’s Eve.

The victory at the rental counter was due to the fact that both Warner titles weren’t available at most rental outlets their first week on shelves.

On the rental chart, Haywire knocked another windowless title, Paramount’s Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, to No. 2. Fox’s We Bought a Zoo, fresh off the studio’s 28-day kiosk holdback, finished the week at No. 3, up from No. 42 the prior week, when it was available only at brick-and-mortar rental outlets.

Blu-ray Sales: New Releases Go Haywire

We are in the slowest time of year on the home market, and it is really showing on the Blu-ray sales chart.

There were only three new releases to place on the Blu-ray sales chart this week, and only one of them earned a respectable opening week Blu-ray share.

Haywire opened in first place with 185,000 units / $3.69 million giving it a Blu-ray share of 49%. That's a solid percentage for a film that struggled to find an audience in theaters.

Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol remained in second place with 134,000 units / $2.86 million for the week and 1.70 million units / $37.37 million after three weeks of release.


Joyful Noise earned first place on the DVD sales chart, but only managed third place on Blu-ray with 117,000 units / $2.34 million. Its opening week Blu-ray share was 23%, which is only about average for the genre.

Contraband fell from first to fourth with 116,000 units / $2.86 million over the week and 626,000 units / $13.05 million after two.

New Year's Eve opened in fifth place with just 89,000 units / $1.81 million. Its opening week Blu-ray share was an anemic 19%, which is soft, even for this type of film.

There were no other new releases to chart this week.

Like last week, overall Blu-ray sales were mixed, and in the same way.

Sales were down from last week with 20% fewer units sold and 16% less revenue generated. Compared to last year, sales were up 69% in terms of units and 87% in terms of dollars.


It was the exact opposite for DVD sales, as they performed much better than Blu-ray when compared to last week, but much worse when compared to last year.

The overall Blu-ray share was lower compared to last week at 35% in terms of units and 40% in terms of dollars, but that was much higher than the same week last year.

It is worth noting that this is better than expected, given the weak slate of new releases on Blu-rays. The top two selling DVDs were the wrong genre for high definition.

Next week is not much stronger than this week in terms of the Blu-ray market.
The Vow will likely lead the way on DVD, but Underworld: Awakenings should top the Blu-ray chart resulting in a weak overall Blu-ray share.

However, Underworld: Awakenings should easily outperform last year's new releases, so the year-over-year comparison should be strong.

DVD Sales: New Year's Eve Makes a Joyful Noise on the Home Market

New releases dominated the top of the DVD sales chart this week. This includes two films that could make a claim for first place: Joyful Noise and New Year's Eve. Joyful Noise led the way in terms of units at 399,000 units to 390,000 units, but New Year's Eve led the way in terms of raw dollars at $7.02 million to $6.38 million. Given their respective production budgets, this is a good start on the home market.

Haywire opened in third place with 196,000 units / $2.94 million. The film struggled at the box office, despite its reviews, but I was hoping it would find a bigger audience on the home market.

Contraband fell from first to fourth with 138,000 units / $2.76 million over the week for totals of 608,000 units / $10.28 million after two.

Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol fell to fifth place with 116,000 units / $1.74 million for the week and 991,000 units / $15.19 million after three. Had it opened with that amount, I would not have been surprised. Fortunately, it is selling much better on Blu-ray.

The only other new release to chart was Bubble Guppies DVD debut, which placed twelfth with 53,000 units / $685,000. This is excellent for a preschool DVD.

A 'Vow' For Retail Savings (Week Ending 05/13/12)

8 May, 2012
By: John Latchem

Vow.jpg

Movies based on books make for easy retail promotions, since the home video can be paired with the original source material for a nice gift set. For example, May 8 Target offered a $5 savings with the joint purchase of Sony Pictures’ The Vow on disc and the book upon which it’s based, which was priced at $11.99.

Otherwise, Target’s attentions were turned toward clearing inventory as part of a “Mother’s Day Gifts for All Budgets” promotion, touting DVDs at $5, $10, $15 and $25 price points.

In addition, Target is taking advantage of the buzz around The Avengers with a sale of several Avengers tie-in products, such as $12.99 DVDs of earlier films in the series, as well as action figures, T-shirts, branded soda and snacks and more.

Best Buy continued to push its Upgrade & Save program, which lets customers exchange a used DVD for a $5 coupon that can be used on any Blu-ray priced at $9.99 and above. The chain devoted a page of its weekly ad circular promoting catalog titles that, with the coupon, could be had for as low as $4.99, such as Apollo 13 and Casino.

Best Buy also highlighted some TV DVD titles with a section labeled as “Season Finales Are Coming,” encouraging shoppers to check out previous seasons of their favorite shows.

Projections: 'Vow,' 'Underworld' Should Fare Well (Week Ending 05/13/12)

14 May, 2012
By: John Latchem

UnderworldVow.jpg

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment should secure the top two sales and rental spots on the charts with a combination of action and romance.

The Vow, based on the book about a married couple coping with the wife’s amnesia, is favored to take the top spot on the overall disc sales chart after scoring $124.9 million at the domestic box office.

Underworld: Awakening, which earned $62 million in theaters as the latest in the “Underworld” series of vampire-werewolf thrillers, is likely to top the Blu-ray sales chart, since it is of a genre favored by Blu-ray buyers.

Sony Tops Disc Charts With 'Vow,' 'Underworld: Awakening'

16 May, 2012
By: Thomas K. Arnold

The Vow

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment scored big on the national home video sales and rental charts the week ended May 13.

The romantic drama The Vow, fresh off a $125 million theatrical run, debuted at No. 1 on both the Nielsen VideoScan First Alert sales chart, which tracks overall disc sales, and Home Media Magazine’s rental chart.

Another Sony title, Underworld: Awakening, topped Nielsen’s dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart its first week in stores — with The Vow a close second.

The latest entry in the “Underworld” horror franchise, which earned $62.3 million in theaters, debuted at No. 2 on the first alert and rental charts, giving Sony the two top spots on all three charts.

Meanwhile, demand for Paramount’s Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol remained strong nearly a month after the action hit’s disc release. In its fourth week in stores, the film remained in the top five on all three charts — and on First Alert even rose back up to No. 3 from No. 5 the previous week.

Of the three titles, Ghost Protocol had the highest percentage of sales from the Blu-ray Disc version — 57% — followed closely by Underworld: Awakening (56%). The Vow, in contrast, generated just 24% of its total unit sales from Blu-ray Disc.


The previous week’s top overall disc seller, Warner’s Joyful Noise, slipped to No. 5 on First Alert, right behind Paramount’s Ghost Protocol at No. 3 and Thor at No. 4. Lionsgate’s Haywire, the prior week’s top Blu-ray seller and rental, slipped to No. 7 on the Nielsen VideoScan Blu-ray Disc sales chart and No. 3 on Home Media Magazine’s rental chart.

The-Numbers DVD and Blu-ray Sales Estimates Week Ending 05/13/12

Blu-ray Sales: Underworld Reaches for the Sky

The same four new releases that charted on the DVD sales chart also charted on the Blu-ray sales chart this week, with just one addition. (And that one addition is actually related to the top film.)

Leading the way was Underworld: Awakening, which earned $11.77 million from 590,000 units sold. Its opening week Blu-ray share was 56%, which is becoming commonplace for action films.

The Vow was a distant second place with 253,000 units / $5.82 million. Its opening week Blu-ray share a mere 24%; however, while that is weak compared to the format as a whole, it is in line with expectations given its genre and target audience.

Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol fell to third with 110,000 units / $2.21 million for the week, giving it totals of 1.81 million units / $39.58 million after four.

The Avengers helped lift a couple Marvel films into the top ten with Thor grabbing fourth place with 88,000 units / $2.32 million for the week for totals of 1.58 million units / $46.65 million after 35 weeks of release. Captain America: The First Avenger was right behind with 82,000 units / $1.65 million for the week and 2.75 million / $67.19 million after 29 weeks of release.

Results like this show the value of a franchise crossover like The Avengers. Not only will fans of the individual franchises go see the movie, but if the movie is really well done, it will bring new fans to the other films.


Chuck: The Season Five opened in 11th place with 35,000 units / $958,000. An opening week Blu-ray share of 37% is excellent for a TV on DVD release.

WrestleMania: XXVIII was right behind with 34,000 units / $581,000. Its opening week Blu-ray share was 39%. It's nearly impossible to judge that figure, as there are so few other releases of this type, so there are simply not enough data to compare it against.

The only other new release to chart was Underworld: Franchise Box Set. This Blu-ray sold 27,000 units generating $1.07 million, further boosting Awakening's weekly haul.

With a strong Blu-ray release on top, the overall Blu-ray sales grew this week. Sales were up last week by 45% in terms of units and 51% in terms of revenue.

Compared to last year, sales rocketed up 175% in terms of units and 222% in terms of revenue.

DVD sales, on the other hand, were basically flat compared to last week and last year. This meant the overall Blu-ray share shot up to 44% in terms of units and 52% in terms of dollars, which is about double what it was this week last year.

Among the new releases for next week are four first-run releases, including two that should sell well on Blu-ray. Chronicle will likely lead the way, but The Grey might surprise.

As for last year, new releases were led by The Mechanic, which only managed second place on the DVD sales chart and only sold 230,000 units on Blu-ray. The third or fourth ranked Blu-ray should sell more than that this year.

DVD Sales: Unbreakable Vow

There was a weird mix of new releases and ancient holdovers on the top of the DVD sales chart this week. (Maybe "ancient" is overstating things.)

Leading the way was The Vow with an impressive opening week sales of 810,000 units / $13.76 million. Given its domestic box office numbers, this is a great start and it is likely already profitable.

Underworld: Awakening was a distant second place with 466,000 units / $7.92 million. Underworld was more expensive than The Vow and performed worse at the box office. However, its Blu-ray sales will get it into the black. (We will get into more on Blu-ray in a little bit.)

Joyful Noise fell to third place with 141,000 units / $2.11 million for the week and 531,000 units / $7.94 million after two. A reasonable production budget will help it earn a profit sooner rather than later.

Bridesmaids bounced into the top five with 11
0,000 units / $1.17 million for the week, while its running tally reached 4.42 million units / $60.46 million after 34 weeks of release. I'm not sure why an 8-month old release winded up on the top five, but the lack of strong new releases probably had a lot to do with that.
It was joined by The Help, which placed fifth with 92,000 units / $1.49 million. After 23 weeks of release, the DVD has sold 4.91 million units and generated $82.97 million in revenue.

Chuck: Season Five opened in 13th place with 60,000 units / $1.63 million, which is strong for a TV on DVD release. WrestleMania: XXVIII debuted in 16th place with 53,000 units / $907,000. WrestleMania continues to be the only "sports" DVD to regularly earn a spot in the top 30 during its debut.

A 'Devil' of a Blu-ray Deal

15 May, 2012
By: John Latchem

DevilInside.jpg

Paramount Home Media Distribution has given Best Buy a number of exclusive Blu-rays of its catalog titles in recent months, such as the May 15 release of Road Trip in HD.

But an exclusive on the Blu-ray for a new theatrical title is much more unusual. Yet that’s the case with The Devil Inside, an early 2012 horror title with a modest box office cume for which the Blu-ray is available only at Best Buy, at $22.99. (Contrast this with Target, which didn't bother advertising the DVD version in its weekly ad circular.)

Best Buy also had a promotion to get $10 Fandango cash to see Battleship or Snow White & the Huntsman with purchase of the Blu-rays for The Kingdom ($7.99), Jarhead, The Mummy or The Scorpion King ($9.99 each). Furthermore, buyers could get a $10 Best Buy gift card with the purchase of any three TV DVD or Blu-ray titles at $14.99 or higher each.

Walmart offered the DVD of The Devil Inside at $14.96 with a bonus digital rental from its Vudu movie-streaming service.

Target offered a promotion touting USA Network shows on DVD, such as “Covert Affairs” and “White Collar.” The chain also had an exclusive DVD of Men in Black: The Animated Series — Season One at $14.99, which includes a $10 coupon for a ticket for the upcoming Men in Black 3.

Projections: A 'Grey' Area for This 'Chronicle'

21 May, 2012
By: John Latchem

180

Among the May 15 new releases, the top seller will likely be either Universal’s The Grey or Fox’s Chronicle. The $64.5 million domestic box office take of Chronicle outpaced The Grey’s $51.6 million, but the star power of the latter film, which features Liam Neeson, should give it the edge on home video.

Other contenders include the Katherine Heigl vehicle One for the Money ($26.4 million), from Lionsgate, and Paramount’s The Devil Inside, a horror sleeper with a $53.3 million box office haul.

Kiosk embargoes give Money the edge on rentals.

HMM Nielsen Videoscan First Alert Sales Report Week Ending 05/20/12

‘The Grey’ Trots Into Top Sales Spot

23 May, 2012
By: Thomas K. Arnold


'The Grey'

Two high-profile new theatrical features, Universal Studios’ The Grey and 20th Century Fox’s Chronicle, debuted in the two top spots on both national home video sales charts for the week ending May 20: the Nielsen VideoScan First Alert sales chart, which tracks overall disc sales, as well as Nielsen’s Blu-ray Disc-only sales chart.

The Grey, an action-adventure film, starring Liam Neeson, about a group of oil workers struggling to make their way home after a plane crash in the bleak Alaskan tundra, earned $51.5 million in theaters.

Chronicle, a sci-fi drama about a group of teens who acquire powerful telekinetic abilities, grossed $64.5 million and, according to Nielsen data, sold about 80% as many discs as The Grey.

But neither title was among the week’s top 20 rentals, as tracked by Home Media Magazine, because both Universal and Fox delay shipping new releases to Netflix and Redbox, the two primary rental channels, by 28 days, in the hopes of boosting sales.

Even so, two other new releases snagged the two top rental spots: Paramount’s The Devil Inside ($53.3 million) bowed at No. 1, followed at No. 2 by the Lionsgate comedy One for the Money ($26.4 million).

The Devil Inside debuted at No. 9 on First Alert, selling just 14.5% as many units as The Grey. One for the Money bowed at No. 4, selling nearly 48% as many units as The Grey.

It is interesting to note that the two top sellers generated the majority of their total unit sales from Blu-ray Disc — 51% for The Grey and 58% for Chronicle – while the two top rentals each generated more than 75% of their total unit sales from standard DVD.

A fifth new release that fared surprisingly well was Rampart, a crime drama with Woody Harrelson, distributed by Millennium Entertainment. The film, which earned less than $1 million in theaters, nevertheless bowed at No. 7 on First Alert, No. 9 on the Blu-ray Disc sales chart and No. 5 on Home Media Magazine’s rental chart.

The-Numbers DVD and Blu-ray Sales Estimates Week Ending 05/20/12

Blu-ray Sales: Grey Brightens Up Blu-ray

Getting caught up on the Blu-ray sales chart after a massive overhaul of the database, which hopefully you didn't notice too much. We're splitting the two weeks into two articles, otherwise they would be just too cumbersome.

We start with the week ending May 20th, which featured six new releases on the chart.

Top spot went to The Grey with 375,000 units sold, but in terms of revenue, it was in second place with $7.50 million. Its opening week Blu-ray share was 51%, which even just last year would have been momentous, but now is standard for a first-run release for any action or adventure film.

Chronicle placed second in terms of units with 350,000 units, but was number one in terms of revenue at $8.31 million. Its opening week Blu-ray share was 57%, which is impressive, even given the average for an action film.

Underworld: Awakening fell from first to third with 148,000 units / $2.75 million for the week giving it totals of 710,000 units / $13.96 million after two weeks of release.

One for the Money debuted in fourth place with just 66,000 units / $1.31 million. This film did have a lot of action, but it was more of a comedy, so I wasn't expecting it to be a big seller on Blu-ray. Even so, its opening week Blu-ray share was just 28%, which is disappointing.

Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol fell to fifth place with 61,000 units / $1.27 million over the week for a totals of 1.87 million units / $40.74 million.

We find Rampart in ninth place with 42,000 units / $636,000. Its Blu-ray share was 36%, which is excellent for a limited release, especially one that is heavy on the drama and light on the visuals.

The Devil Inside only managed 19th place with 20,000 units / $492,000. It struggled on DVD and with an opening week Blu-ray share of just 25%, it bombed on Blu-ray.

Hell on Wheels: The First Season was right behind with 19,000 units / $380,000 for a opening week Blu-ray share 34%. This is a strong start for a TV on DVD release.


The overall Blu-ray sales were a little week compared to last week down 7% in terms of units and 11% in terms of revenue. Granted, you would always prefer growth, but week-over-week declines of this size are just random noise and nothing to be concerned about, or really take note of.

On the other hand, growth from last year was noteworthy, as we sold 99% more units and generated 128% more revenue.

DVD sales were weaker compared to last week and last year, so the overall Blu-ray share was again strong at 44% in terms of units and 52% in terms of dollars, which was again about double what it was this week last year.

There's no need to look ahead to next week, because we already have those numbers and we will get to them right away.

DVD Sales: A Colorful Couple Weeks on DVD

After a major change on the back end of site, we have two weeks of home market numbers to get to, starting with the week ending on May 20th. New releases dominated the chart taking the top three spots and four of the top six.

The Grey earned first place with 360,000 units / $6.12 million. This is a fine start given its theatrical run, but not an exceptional one.

Chronicle was disappointing in second place with 262,000 units / $3.92 million. It made more than The Grey did theatrically, but significantly less on DVD, so it converted a lot fewer ticket buyers into purchases on the home market.

One for the Money debuted in third place with 172,000 / $2.58 million. It struggled at the box office and it struggled during its home market debut.

Underworld: Awakening fell to fourth place with 162,000 units / $2.88 million over the week giving it totals of 604,000 units / $10.39 million after two.

The Vow plummeted from first to fifth with 152,000 units / $2.71 million for the week. After two weeks of release, it has sold 920,000 units and generated $15.76 million.

Rampart just missed the top five with 76,000 units / $755,000. This is a strong start for a limited release.

The Devil Inside just missed the top ten with 58,000 units / $874,000. It did very well at the box office compared to most January releases, but it's bombed on the home market. I guess its reviews finally caught up with it.

The final new release to chart was Hell on Wheels: Season One. The TV on DVD release took 17th place with 37,000 units / $679,000, which is strong for a cable show.

Buy 'MIB' on Blu, Get $10

22 May, 2012
By: Erik Gruenwedel

180

If consumers need a reason to buy Men in Black or Men in Black II on Blu-ray Disc — the latter for the first time — Best Buy is selling both titles, starring Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones, with UltraViolet for $12.99 each.

Even better, the No. 1 consumer electronics retailer gives buyers $10 toward the purchase of a ticket to see Men in Black 3, which debuts in theaters nationwide May 25. The $10 is redeemed online only with a valid email address. The offer is good through July 5.

With the average non-3D movie ticket priced nationally around $8, according to the National Association of Theater Operators, Best Buy is essentially paying consumers to see the movie. Combined with the fact that consumers can trade in each BD title for $5 in Best Buy store credit (or cash at another buy-sell-trade retailer) after watching the enclosed sneak peek of MIB3 and registering each title on UltraViolet, the return on investment is a no-brain

Projections: 'Red Tails' Looks For Soaring Sales

28 May, 2012
By: John Latchem

180

The week ending May 27 will be dominated by three titles that all performed about the same at the domestic box office. With a Memorial Day tie-in and a strong urban appeal, Lucasfilm’s Red Tails, distributed by Fox, should top the sales charts after taking $49.9 million at the domestic box office.

Fox’s This Means War ($54.6 million) and Sony Pictures’ The Woman in Black ($54.3 million) also should perform well.

With the Fox titles subjected to a kiosk embargo, Woman in Black should top the rental chart.

HMM Nielsen Videoscan First Alert Sales Report Week Ending 05/27/12

Lucasfilm's 'Red Tails' Conquers the Sales Charts 30 May, 2012

Red Tails

Four new releases debuted in the four top spots on both national sales charts the week ended May 27.

The four, with box office earnings of between $19 million and $55 million, finished in the same order on the Nielsen VideoScan First Alert chart, which tracks overall disc sales, and Nielsen’s dedicated Blu-ray Disc chart.

The roll call: 20th Century Fox’s Red Tails ($49.9 million), a war drama about a crew of black pilots during World War II, debuted at No. 1. The film, which stars Cuba Gooding Jr. and Terrence Howard, generated 48% of its first-week sales from Blu-ray Disc.

Another Fox film, the romantic comedy This Means War ($54.7 million), starring Reese Witherspoon, bowed at No. 2 on both charts, generating 44% of its unit sales from Blu-ray.

Coming at No. 3 on both charts was Walt Disney Studios’ The Secret World of Arrietty ($19.2 million), a 2010 anime title that moved 43% of its first-week units on Blu-ray Disc.

And debuting at No. 4 on both charts was Sony Pictures’ The Woman in Black ($54.3 million), a horror film starring Harry Potter himself, Daniel Radcliffe, as a young lawyer who discovers the vengeful ghost of a scorned woman in a remote village.

With Fox holding back new releases from Netflix and Redbox and The Secret Life of Arrietty aimed at the sellthrough crowd, The Woman in Black was the only one of the bunch to make the top 20 on Home Media Magazine’s weekly video rental chart, bowing at No. 1.
