Blu-ray Sales: Red Revels in Blu

New releases took the top four spots in the Blu-ray sales chart. Red Tails took first place with 446,000 units / $10.25 million for a 48% opening week Blu-ray share. The film was expensive to make and it didn't perform well enough in theaters, but its home market numbers are better.

This Means War was well back in second place with 261,000 unit s/ $5.21 million. Its opening week Blu-ray share was 47%, but it is hard to judge how good that is, because the film is a mixture of Romantic Comedy and Action, and those two genres tend to have widely different results on high definition. As an action film, it is merely good. As a romantic comedy, it is fantastic.

The Secret World of Arrietty earned third place with 152,000 units / $3.50 million. Its opening week Blu-ray share was 47%, which is great for a kids movie, but Studio Ghibli films appeal as much to adult fans of the art form as they do to kids.

The Woman in Black opened in fourth place with 121,000 units / $2.41 million for an opening week Blu-ray share of 40%. I was hoping for more for this film.

The Grey fell from first place to fifth place with 112,000 units / $2.69 million for the week and 488,000 units / $10.19 million in total.

There were plenty of other new releases to chart, starting with Men in Black in ninth place with 53,000 units / $689,000 and Men in Black 2 in tenth place with 50,000 / $655,000.

Whisper in the Heart opened in 12th place with 41,000 units / $939,000 while fellow Studio Ghibli release, Castle in the Sky, opened in 16th with 33,000 units / $760,000.

The final new release to chart was Sherlock: Season Two, which earned 17th place with 31,000 units / $871,000. Its opening week Blu-ray share was 26%, which is strong for a TV on DVD release.


Overall, the Blu-ray market was strong. It grew 16% in terms of units and 15% in terms of revenue from last week and 105% in terms of units and 114% in terms of revenue when compared to last year.

DVD sales actually grew faster compared to last week rising 22%, both in terms of units and revenue, but fell 9% in terms of units from last year. (Revenue was essentially flat.) This meant the overall Blu-ray reach was a little lower than last week at 43% in terms of units and 50% in terms of revenue, but this is still a fantastic result.

Looking forward to next week, there's good news and bad news. The good new is True Blood: Season Four. The bad news is, everything else. There's not a lot of depth out there. On the other hand, last year had the exact same strengths and weaknesses, literally. The best selling True Blood: Season Three was the best selling DVD and Blu-ray, while the lack of depth was a real issue. The overall growth of Blu-ray should help the format easily win in the year-over-year comparison.

DVD Sales: A Colorful Couple Weeks on DVD

...

Moving onto the week of May 27th, which was also dominated by new releases. Red Tails earned first place with 485,000 units / $7.26 million. Its theatrical run was only mixed, but strong home market numbers could help the film recoup more of its production budget.

This Means War was well back in second place with 297,000 units / $4.44 million. It also missed expectations at the box office and this start on the home market won't help it financially.

The Woman in Black was disappointing in third place with 180,000 units / $3.06 million. It deserves better.

Likewise, The Secret World of Arrietty deserved better, but its opening week DVD sales of 174,000 units / $3.13 million were at least good compared to its theatrical run.

The Grey fell from first to fifth with 147,000 units / $2.49 million over the week for totals of 507,000 units / $8.60 million after two.

There were two other new releases to chart, both of which were TV on DVD releases. Sherlock: Season Two earned tenth place with 87,000 units / $1.73 million, which is great for an import. Meanwhile, Rizzoli & Isles: The Complete Second Season was right behind with 66,000 units / $1.77 million.

Retailers Drink 'True Blood'

29 May, 2012
By: John Latchem

TrueBlood4.jpg

As is tradition for the HBO vampire series, retailers offered plenty of deals for True Blood: The Complete Fourth Season.

Target offered the Blu-ray of the season with an exclusive 65-minute cast Q&A.

Best Buy offered an exclusive T-shirt with the purchase of the fourth-season Blu-ray of “True Blood,” and also offered a sampler of the first two episodes of Cinemax’s “Strike Back” with the purchase of any HBO show on disc.

Walmart began offering a special shelf timed for Father’s Day, labeled “Super Star Dad.” The display included dozens of DVDs for as low as $7.50, such as Major League, The Godfather, The Hangover and Sherlock Holmes, and $9.96 titles such as Source Code.

Projections: 'True Blood' Set to Top Charts

4 Jun, 2012
By: John Latchem

TrueBlood4.jpg

Given the immense popularity of HBO’s “True Blood” and the strong performance of previous seasons of the show on disc, there’s no reason to think the fourth season won’t similarly top the DVD and Blu-ray sales charts for the week ending June 3.

The other May 29 new releases, all of which barely made a blip on the box office radar, include Summit’s Man on a Ledge and Gone, Magnolia’s Goon, and
Anchor Bay’s Coriolanus. Ledge and Gone have the best chance at cracking the top five sellers and should top the rental chart as well.

'True Blood' Season-Four Set Debuts Atop the Sales Charts
6 Jun, 2012
By: Thomas K. Arnold

True Blood: The Complete Fourth Season

TV DVD is back.

The complete fourth-season set of the hit HBO vampire series “True Blood” debuted at No. 1 on both national home video sales charts the week ended June 3, with the Summit/Lionsgate crime drama Man on a Ledge finishing a distant second.

It was the first double victory for a TV DVD release since season three of “True Blood” came out a year ago.

According to Nielsen, Man on a Ledge sold 30.6% as many units its first week in stores as the pricier “True Blood” boxed set. On Blu-ray Disc, Man on a Ledge sold nearly 40% as many copies. Nielsen data shows that “True Blood” generated 34% of its first-week sales from the Blu-ray Disc version, while the high-definition disc format accounted for 44% of all Man on a Ledge unit sales.

The previous week’s top seller, 20th Century Fox’s Red Tails, slipped to No. 3 on both the Nielsen VideoScan First Alert chart, which tracks overall disc sales at most big retailers (except for Walmart and Sam’s Club), and Nielsen’s dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart.

While Man on a Ledge bowed at No. 2 on both sales charts, the film, which grossed just $18.6 million in theaters, did manage a No. 1 debut on Home Media Magazine’s video rental chart — followed closely at No. 2 by another Summit/Lionsgate release, the thriller Gone, which earned $11.7 million in theaters.

Blu-ray Sales: True to Form

True Blood: Season Four led all new releases and earned top spot on the Blu-ray sales chart. During its first week of release, it sold 369,000 units and generated $12.93 million in revenue. Its opening week Blu-ray share was 34%, which is low for the format as a whole, but very strong for a TV on DVD release.

Man on a Ledge opened in second place with 131,000 units / $2.23 million. Its opening week Blu-ray share was 47%, which is good, but not great. It was an action film, which usually means higher Blu-ray share, but it wasn't a particularly visually intensive one, plus it struggled at the box office.

Red Tails added 81,000 units / $2.02 million over the week for a total of 527,000 units / $12.27 million after two.

Thanks to Prometheus, the Alien Anthology returned to the chart in fourth place selling 69,000 units and generating $3.50 million.

The Grey remained in fifth place selling 61,000 units and generating $1.45 million in revenue during its third week in release for running tallies of 548,000 units / $11.64 million.

Amazingly, Goon opened in sixth place with 59,000 units / $1.17 million. Its opening week Blu-ray share was 51%, which is outstanding for a limited release and a comedy.

Gone, on the other hand, missed the top ten landing in twelfth place with 48,000 units / $819,000. Its opening week Blu-ray share was 36%, which is weak compared to the format average, but everything about this film's performance has been weak thus far.

The final new release to chart was Coriolanus, which earned 14th place with 39,000 units / $665,000. An opening week Blu-ray share of 39% is strong for a limited release.


The blu-ray market didn't sell as many units this week declining by 19% from last week. However, this week was led by a TV on DVD release, which tend to not sell as many units, but the higher price helped the revenue grow by just under 1%.

Growth from last year was fantastic up 106% in terms of units and 149% percent in terms of dollars. DVD sales were stronger when compared to last week, up 1% in terms of units and 31% in terms of revenue, and when compared to last year, up 10% / 16%. The overall Blu-ray reach was again a little lower than last week down to 39% in terms of units and 45% in terms of dollars. If it can remain at this level for the rest of summer, that would still be a strong result.

Looking forward to next week, Safe House should lead the way, which is good news, as the film made more than $100 million domestically. By comparison, last year was led by True Grit, which earned first place on DVD and Blu-ray. Even with the overall growth in the Blu-ray market, I don't think Safe House will match those numbers, so we could see a year-over-year decline.

DVD Sales: Truth Wins Out

True Blood was the only major release on this week's DVD sales chart crushing newcomers and holdovers alike. It sold 717,000 units / $21.52 million during its opening week, which is fantastic for a TV on DVD release. Man on the Ledge opened in a very distant second place with just 147,000 units / $2.20 million. It failed to make much of an impact in theaters, so this result is unsurprising. The Secret World of Arrietty actually rose to third place, second place in terms of dollars. It sold an additional 128,000 units / $2.55 million over the week for a total of 288,000 units / $5.42 million after two. Red Tails fell from first to fourth with 120,000 units / $1.79 million over the week for a total of 566,000 units / $8.47 million after two. This Means War rounded out the top five with 99,000 units / $1.48 million during the week and 372,000 units / $5.57 million after two.

There were a few other new releases to chart, starting with Gone, which earned sixth place with 86,000 units / $1.28 million. Even compared to its box office numbers, this was bad. Coriolanus opened in 12th place with 62,000 units / $865,000, which is very solid for a limited release. Goon managed 15th place with 55,000 units / $773,000. Again, this is solid for a limited release, but its Blu-ray numbers were even better.

On a side note, Game of Thrones: Season One returned to the chart in 16th place in terms of units and fourth place in terms of revenue. It sold an additional 54,000 units / $1.89 million for a total of 897,000 units / $30.57 million. This was due to the Season Two finale and the DVD will likely return to the top 30 when the Season Two DVD and Blu-ray come out.

Merch0605.jpg

A slew of major new releases hit shelves June 5, and Best Buy offered exclusives with almost all of them.

For Universal’s Safe House, Best Buy offered an exclusive Blu-ray/DVD combo pack in steelbook packaging.

For Fox’s Act of Valor, it offered the Blu-ray combo pack with exclusive box art and additional Navy SEAL footage. For Warner’s Journey 2, it offered the first Journey at $4.99 for DVD, $7.99 for Blu-ray and $19.99 for 3D BD. Consumers who purchased Fox’s White Collar: The Complete Third Season and Burn Notice: Season Five together could save $10. And for Disney’s John Carter, Best Buy touted a coupon at JohnCarterCoupon.com/BestBuy good for $5 off the 3D Blu-ray combo pack, which it sold with an exclusive bonus disc.

Target also offered a John Carter promotion, offering an $8 savings with the purchase of Carter with another selected Disney Blu-ray movie, such as Tron: Legacy or Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.

In addition, Target’s copy of the Breaking Bad: The Complete Fourth Season DVD came with an exclusive cast Q&A.

Projections: 'Valor' Among Top New Titles

11 Jun, 2012
By: John Latchem

CarterValor.jpg

Retailers will look to put a relatively slow May behind them with a slew of top-tier titles to kick off June.

Among the contenders for the top sales spot are Fox’s Act of Valor ($70 million at the domestic box office), Disney’s John Carter ($72.7 million), Universal’s Safe House ($126.2 million) and Warner’s Journey 2 ($103.4 million). Valor has been trending ahead of Carter on Amazon.com’s bestseller list.


With none of the new releases available at Redbox or Netflix due to studio embargoes, the previous top rentals should remain atop the rental chart.

HMM Nielsen Videoscan First Alert Sales Report Week Ending 06/10/12

Quote:
Disney's 'John Carter' Rises To Top of Disc Sales Charts

By: Thomas K. Arnold

360
John Carter

The post-Memorial Day onslaught of high-powered theatricals is officially underway, with the top five spots on the national home video sales charts for the week ended June 10 all going to new releases.

Walt Disney Studios’ John Carter snagged the top spot on both the Nielsen VideoScan First Alert sales chart, which tracks overall disc sales, and Nielsen’s dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart.

Fox’s Act of Valor finished a close second on both charts, while Universal Studios’ Safe House debuted at No. 3, also on both charts.

The two top sellers earned similar box office revenue — John Carter grossed $72.9 million in U.S. theaters, while Act of Valor grossed $70 million — and both are geared toward the post-Memorial Day action crowd, as is Safe House, starring Denzel Washington, which earned $126.2 million.

All three titles finished within 4% of each other in terms of unit sales, according to Nielsen data.

Warner’s Journey 2: The Mysterious Island debuted at No. 4 on both charts. The family friendly sequel to 2008’s Journey to the Center of the Earth, with a mild ‘PG’ rating, earned $103.6 million in U.S. theaters.

The fifth spot on both sales charts went to a TV DVD release: the complete fourth season of “Breaking Bad,” from Sony Pictures.

Now that Disney also holds back certain titles from rental outlets for 28 days, none of the four top sellers were widely available at Netflix or Redbox and thus failed to make the top 20 on Home Media Magazine’s weekly rental chart.

The top rental for the week ended June 10 was Man on a Ledge, from Lionsgate/Summit, which held on to the No. 1 spot for the second consecutive week.

Lots of historical reports charts and graphs added for all of the weeks of 2012.

Some of the early weeks in Jan and Feb 2012 did not have full graph sets as I was traveling on business for most of that month and I did not get around to creating them at the time.

I'll probably get to them some time in the future.


if you have any questions post here in this thread or PM me

More reports added and sequences adjusted.

Each week now has some release and sales data.
post #206 of 315

Information of when the various sales report data for each week generally becomes available

This sub forum will include complete sets of the routine weekly reports that we have each week from various data sources.

Subsequent weeks will have additional reports filled in as the data arrives as time moves on.



Normally we have the weekly reports arriving in this sequence:




  • Initial upcoming release announcements (DVD Release Report and other sources for release dates).
  • HMM merchandising report for the upcoming week. (Weekend at the end of the of the Mon-Sun reported week).
  • HMM Sales Projection (Weekend at the end of the of the reported Mon-Sun week).
  • New to domestic Blu-ray-week ending list (Tue or Wed after the reporting week ends)
  • HMM Reported Nielsen Videoscan first alert Report narrative and links to data (Wed after the Mon-Sun reporting week ends)
  • Charts and Graphs (As soon as I have time to create them, Wed or Thurs usually)
  • HMM Revenue and Unit Sales Estimates (Mon-Tues of following week - one day offset Sun-Sat reporting period)
  • The-Numbers Top 10 Blu-ray and Top 30 DVD Unit Sales and Revenue Weekly Estimate and Cumulative Sales Estimate (Mon-Wed of following week - Mon-Sat reporting period)






So it takes two or three weeks to complete the data cycle for each week's data reporting from start to finish.

Thus at any time we will have multiple weeks in progress for discussion.

This thread is intended to be used as a master thread for reference and discussion for all the weekly sales reports from Home Media Magazine, Nielsen Videoscan, The-Numbers or any other sources of weekly sales information.

Note that The-Numbers, Nielsen Videoscan first alert as reported by Home Media Magazine and The Hollywood Reporter, Rentrak and many other sources use a Monday-Sunday reporting week while the weekly revenue and unit sales figures published by Home Media Magazine (HMM) each week is offset a day with a Sunday-Saturday reporting week. With new releases coming usually on Tuesday and major releases sometimes on Friday that results in a slight reporting period offset where major releases get one less day of sales (Sunday) in the HMM revenue and unit sales data for the entire format sales figures each week for Blu-ray and DVD and some of the impact of the hot new releases is spread into the next HMM reporting week.

Also note that Home Media Magazine and The-Numbers weekly sales data are also estimates and have inherent reporting errors and assumptions. Even when they may differ in magnitude in the estimates or may be biased in their methodology, especially on a weekly or short term basis their general trends over the time are more consistent and more accurate. The-Numbers in particular is designed to be more accurate in the cumulative long term numbers and may have initial weekly sales estimates that may have issues. But The-Numbers data is the only routine weekly unit and revenues estimate available that is openly available and is free from Non-Disclosure requirements from data aggregators.

Also keep in mind that Walmart sales data is not currently available to Nielsen Videoscan and is not a part of their reporting and must be estimated by The-Numbers and other data sources. Walmart sales estimates are generally easier to do for unit sales than revenues generated and estimates for high volume titles have more error in the estimates from The-Numbers and HMM..

Hope this data helps to put things into perspective.

This thread will present the available sales reports for Blu-ray and DVD as they become available.

Discussion is open to anything concerning Blu-ray or DVD sales results but should focus on the weekly sales results or performance of previous released current or future individual titles if possible.

Another thread has been created to talk about more long term trends but as long as we are talking about Blu-ray or DVD sales its cool.
