Most catalog titles shipped to major retailers by the major studios are at least in 10,000 to 50,000 unit allocations if not more based on anticipated demand. But just to send to national distribution to go to 3000 to 4000 brick and mortar storefronts for initial inventory at each retailer like a Best Buy Target or Walmart you need tens of thousands of units.

Thanks, that sounds like a big initial run and some base effort would be needed for all catalog titles. That would explain why studios prefer to license to labels like Criterion or more recently Twilight Time for titles where they probably do not expect big sales.

Agreed. The studios want titles to have 10,000 units of initial sales and most anything they send to regular retail distribution will sell that amount. But its also a matter of priority as well.

The studios can only send so much to the retailers in their normal distribution and can only author so many titles in their normal workload so they prioritize what to release. That gives smaller distributors an option to get the rights for some longer tail titles that they can produce and distribute themselves. Its typical for those deals to have some pretty good titles included along the minor stuff as a sweetener.

Personally I don't care if its a studio or minor distributor that releases it as long as its done well and available on Blu-ray.

The-Numbers DVD and Blu-ray Sales Estimates Week Ending 06/10/12


Note: this report from TN also includes one more sales day (Sunday) than the HMM revenue estimate for the week as TN and NV data is Mon-Sun while the HMM revenue estimates is Sun-Sat and thus accounts for one less sales day of new releases.

Also as a general rule the unit sales numbers from The-Numbers are considered by many to be substantially more accurate than the revenue numbers for new releases and the cumulative numbers are more accurate than the week to week estimates. Part of that is the difficulty of estimating the sales numbers from Walmart and especially the revenues generated from that retailer in the short term. There is often a conflict on a week with high volume releases that sell a lot of units at Walmart between the Home Media Magazine revenue estimates and the The-Numbers revenue estimates for high volume weeks. The Home Media Magazine revenue estimates are considered by many including me to be more reliable.

Blu-ray Sales: John Carter Acts Up

New releases dominated the Blu-ray sales chart just as much as it did the DVD sales chart.

Two Blu-rays, John Carter and Act of Valor topped the list. John Carter led the way in terms of units with 965,000 units / $19.30 million. Its opening week Blu-ray share was just shy of 60%. The film is still going to lose money, but its high definition run should at least cut the loses a bit.

Act of Valor was second in terms of units with 958,000 units, but first in terms of dollars with $19.83 million. Its opening week Blu-ray share was 58%, whixh is certainly worth celebrating.

Safe House was next with 798,000 units / $15.94 million for an opening week Blu-ray share of 54%. At this point, this is a good, but not great run on Blu-ray. Every action film should sell more Blu-ray than DVDs.

Journey 2 Mysterious Island didn't reach that level with 433,000 / $12.12 million for a Blu-ray share of 42%. However, to be fair, it is a family friendly film, and these tend to sell better on DVD than Blu-ray regardless of genre.


Breaking Bad: The Complete Fourth Season placed fifth during its first week of release with 115,000 units / $2.87 million. Its Blu-ray share was 32% and that's fantastic for a TV on DVD release.

There were no other new releases in the top ten, but a few more that landed lowered in the charts.

Machine Gun Preacher was the best of the rest landing in 12th place with 39,000 units / $827,000. Its opening week Blu-ray share was 40%, which is acceptable for a limited release, but not spectacular.

Falling Skies: The Complete First Season opened in 13th place with 38,000 units / $865,000 for a Blu-ray share of 42%. This is fantastic for a TV on DVD release and shows that soon Blu-ray will take over TV on DVD releases as well.

Workaholics: Seasons 1 & 2 Combo Doggy opened in 19th place with 30,000 units / $443,000.

The overall Blu-ray market was incredible this past week. In fact, it was the second best in terms of units sold (3.99 million) and third best in terms of revenue ($90.47 million).

I have to say, I wasn't expecting that. This is 199% more units sold than last week and 147% more revenue. The increases from last year are even more impressive with 218% more units sold and 255% more revenue generated.

DVD sales were also much stronger than they were last week and last year, growing by 60% to 84%, depending on the time frame and the metric. At this time of year, TV on DVD releases tend to take over as the summer shows have their premieres and the weaker winter / spring releases hit the home market, so the overall Blu-ray share tends to shrink, but that didn't happen this week.

In fact, they grew to just shy of 50% in terms of units and 55% in terms of revenue. This bodes very well for the upcoming Christmas season, assuming the global economy doesn't implode in the meantime.


Next week the Blu-ray sales should be led by Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows. The film wasn't as big a hit in theaters as some were expecting, but it should sell very well on Blu-ray. It could top 1 million units during its opening week.

Last year, the best new release was Battle: Los Angeles, which only managed second place on DVD while topping the chart on Blu-ray. We should see solid growth in the year-over-year comparison.

DVD Sales: New Releases Get into the Act

New releases dominated the DVD sales chart this week earning the top five spots. They also placed five more DVDs in the top twenty.

Act of Valor led the way with 703,000 units / $11.94 million, which is a surprisingly strong start.

Safe House was right behind with 674,000 units / $11.45 million. I figured this film would be the best selling DVD of the week, so finishing in second place is a little disappointing, but this is not a bad start for this time of year.

John Carter was also strong compared to the market as a whole with 649,000 units / $11.03 million, which is on par with its theatrical run.

Journey 2 Mysterious Island placed fourth with 599,000 units / $9.07 million. I was expecting more given its family friendly nature and its theatrical run, but perhaps it did better on Blu-ray.

Breaking Bad: Season Four rounded out the top five with 246,000 units / $4.91 million, which is strong for a TV on DVD release, but it wasn't the only TV on DVD release to do well.

White Collar: Season Three debuted in eighth place with 84,000 units / $1.91 million and Doc Martin: Series 5 was right behind with 80,000 units / $2.80 million. For an import TV on DVD release to do this well is particularly impressive.

Machine Gun Preacher debuted in tenth place with 59,000 units / $1.07 million, which is good for a limited release.

A pair of TV on DVD releases rounded out the new releases with Burn Notice: Season Five opened in 12th place with 56,000 units / $1.86 million.

The final new release to chart was Falling Skies: The Complete First Season, which placed 14th with 52,000 units / $1.05 million.

It’s Elementary: 'Sherlock' Sequel Debuts at No. 1

20 Jun, 2012
By: Thomas K. Arnold

SherlockHolmesGameShadows.jpg
Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows

Call it the week of sequel power. Warner Home Video’s newly released Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, a sequel to 2009’s Sherlock Holmes, shot to the top of both national home video sales charts its first week in stores.

Meanwhile, Sony Pictures’ Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, a belated sequel to 2007’s Ghost Rider, debuted at No. 1 on Home Media Magazine’s weekly rental chart.

Other than that, the two films really don’t have much in common. Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, released theatrically two years after the original, features both main stars — Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law — and was a big success on the big screen.

The second "Ghost Rider" film? Not so much. While A Game of Shadows grossed $187.6 million, just a little less than the original’s $209 million, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance earned just $51.8 million, less than half the original’s $115.8 million. What’s more, five years passed between installments, which in the fickle world of Hollywood, in the words of one observer, “might as well be a lifetime.”

Accordingly, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance didn’t fare nearly as well on the sales charts, bowing at a distant No. 3 on the Nielsen VideoScan First Alert chart, which tracks overall disc sales. The film was outsold by A Game of Shadows by a nearly 5-to-1 ratio.

On Nielsen’s dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart, the second Ghost Rider film also debuted at No. 3 — but with total unit sales of just 19.5% of the Sherlock Holmes sequel.

As for its performance on the rental chart, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance didn’t really have much competition. A Game of Shadows is distributed by Warner, which delays distribution to some rental outlets.

On both sales charts, 20th Century Fox’s Act of Valor held steady at No. 2, with Universal Studios’ Safe House slipping down a notch to No. 4 and Walt Disney Studios’ John Carter, No. 1 the previous week, falling to No. 5.

Working on the charts and graphs now.

The last two weeks the Blu-ray Unit Marketshare of the Top 20 Sellers has been 47.57% and 48.57%.

That is, of all the units sold of all of the bestselling 20 titles just under half of the units moved were Blu-ray skus.

Since also Blu-ray skus sell for more than DVD versions by around 25% the Blu-ray revenue share for those mostly new releases was significantly higher than that.

Note:

Did a bit of catchup on the thread today.

All the January and February weeks that did not have Top 20 Sellers, Blu-ray Top 20, Top 20 Sellers Marketshare and Blu-ray Title Share charts now have them them inserted in the proper sequence in the thread.

In viewing some weeks, one may still need to click on the links to see the text based charts with the detailed report data as those have not been caught up yet for all of the weeks. Its on my to do list.

Weeks prior to 02/26/12 do not have graphs for 3D sales.

The weeks in February that had Blu-ray Top 20 charts without the new releases color coded in red have also been updated.

Every week in 2012 now has graphs that visually present the Nielsen Videoscan first alert data in a standardized manner.

Blu-ray Sales: Shadows Brighten Blu-ray

It was a nearly record-breaking week on the Blu-ray sales chart this week, which is very strange for this time of year.

Granted, we had the last of the winter blockbusters, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, leading the new releases, but it was still better than expected. That film sold 1.77 million units generating $40.71 million for a for an opening week Blu-ray share of 54%.

Act of Valor remained in second place with 423,000 units / $9.95 million for the week giving it totals of 1.34 million units / $28.85 million after two.

Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance landed in third place with 344,000 units / $6.87 million for an opening week Blu-ray share of 49%. This is a little weaker than expected, given its visual nature.

Safe House fell to fourth place with 231,000 units / $5.54 million for the week giving it totals of 1.05 million units / $21.90 million after two.

Meanwhile, John Carter was right behind with 221,000 units / $5.08 million over the week for a total of 1.18 million / $24.22 million, also after two.

Superman vs. The Elite took eighth place with 88,000 units / $1.58 million. Its opening week Blu-ray share was 68%, which is absolutely amazing. Granted, it's aimed at the perfect demographic for Blu-ray, but this is still a great start.


On the other hand, Tyler Perry's Good Deeds landed in ninth place with 86,000 units / $1.72 million. Its opening week Blu-ray share was just 21%, but that's common for Tyler Perry films.

The final new release to chart was Entourage: Season Eight, which opened in 21st place with 29,000 units / $918,000. TV on DVD releases rarely do that well on Blu-ray, so a 24% Blu-ray share is good.

The Blu-ray market was relatively flat compared to last week down 1% in terms of units and up 4% in terms of dollars.

It was the fifth best week in terms of total revenue at $95 million and third best in terms of total units sold at 3.95 million. (Although there is a tight collection of weeks at the top, so when final numbers come in, these rankings could change.)

Compared to last year, Blu-ray sales were 273% higher in terms of units and 345% higher in terms of revenue. I was expecting growth on the year-over-year comparison, but nothing like this.


DVD sales were also relatively flat when compared to last week, as they were 4% higher in terms of units and 4% lower in terms of revenue. Compared to last year, DVD sales were 63% higher in terms of units and 68% higher in terms of revenue, so home market sales were strong across the board.

The overall Blu-ray share dropped by one percentage point to 47% in terms of units, but rose to 56% in terms of revenue.

Next week, the best selling release on Blu-ray should be Project X, which is not a good sign for the overall sales.

Fortunately, last year was even worse with Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules leading the way on DVD and The Adjustment Bureau led the way on Blu-ray with just 86,000 units. If project X doesn't sell at least twice that, I would be shocked.

Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows might sell almost as much during its second week of release than the entire market did last year.

DVD Sales: Sherlock Graduates

Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows dominated the new releases and easily took top spot on top of the DVD sales chart this week. It sold 1.52 million units and generated $22.71 million in revenue, which is substantially more than its predecessor made during its opening week, despite selling fewer tickets while in theaters. It's hard to explain that.

Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance placed second with 359,000 units / $6.10 million, which is a mere fraction of its predecessor, but the DVD market has really changed in the past five years, so comparisons are unfair. Even so, this is weak.

Act of Valor was in third place with 327,000 units / $4.99 million for the week giving it totals of 961,000 units / $15.77 million after two. Tyler Perry's Good Deeds opened in fourth place with 324,000 unit s/ $5.49 million. This is a step up from Madea's Big Happy Family, for instance. Safe House fell to fifth place with 258,000 units / $4.65 million over the week for a total of 962,000 units / $16.60 million after two.

Another Tyler Perry release, Aunt Bam's Place: The Play opened in 8th place with 152,000 units / $2.13 million. This is very strong for a direct-to-DVD release, although Tyler Perry's built in fanbase helps. Entourage: Season Eight earned tenth place in its debut with 91,000 units / $2.40 million. The final new release to chart was Superman vs. the Elite, which placed 20th with 42,000 units / $594,000.

I have finally added in all of the Nielsen Videoscan data charts now for the weeks in January and February 2012 where they were previously missing.

I've also replaced some charts that for one reason or another had bad image hosting links. A couple of those still remain here and there and I'll clean those up also in the near future.

As of now there pretty much is a complete set of weekly data available for every week in 2012.

A modest slate of new releases June 19 includes only one film that grossed more than $25 million at the domestic box office, that being Warner’s found-footage party film Project X at $54.7 million.

While Project X should finish highest among the new releases for the week, such conditions usually give a strong holdover release, such as Warner’s Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, a chance to repeat atop the sales charts.

Due to embargoes, Paramount’s Jeff, Who Lives at Home should be the top new release on the rental chart.

'Sherlock Holmes' Sequel Tops Sales Chart for Second Week

27 Jun, 2012
By: Thomas K. Arnold

SherlockHolmesGameShadows.jpg
Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows

Warner Home Video’s Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows remained the top-selling disc for the second consecutive week, while another Warner title, Project X, was the highest-ranking new release the week ended June 24.

Project X, a teen-party-gone-wild comedy, debuted at No. 2 on the Nielsen VideoScan First Alert chart, which tracks overall disc sales, as well as Nielsen’s dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart. The Hangover-like film grossed $54.7 million in theaters and features a cast of mostly attractive unknowns.

Another new release, Universal Studios’ Big Miracle, a $20 million-grossing drama with Drew Barrymore, debuted at No. 3 on First Alert and No. 6 on the Blu-ray Disc sales chart, behind 20th Century Fox’s Act of Valor at No. 3, Walt Disney Studio’s John Carter at No. 4 and Universal Studios’ Safe House at No. 5.

On First Alert, Act of Valor at No. 4 and Safe House at No. 5 rounded out the top five sellers.

Of the films in the top five on either chart, John Carter generated the highest percentage of its weekly sales from Blu-ray Disc, at 50%. Big Miracle was on the low end, at 31%.

On Home Media Magazine’s weekly video rental chart, the No. 1 spot went to This Means War, from 20th Century Fox, fresh off its 28-day moratorium from Netflix and Redbox. The prior week the film was No. 82.

The Paramount comedy Jeff, Who Lives at Home, debuted at No. 2. Paramount is one of the only studios that doesn’t hold back titles from rental outlets.

Note: The-Numbers made corrections to their cumulative data in their Opusdata database as it got in final estimates for week ending 06/15/12. The reported numbers for last week have not changed but cumulative totals and the incremental reported figures for this week and beyond have and probably will be adjusted further as their goal in most accurate cumulative sales data and since they do not revise published weekly data those are running changes. In this particular case, they are acknowledging that their initial estimates for the latest Sherlock Holmes release were too high.

Blu-ray Sales: New Releases Lose to the Game

There were four new releases to reach the top ten on the Blu-ray sales chart this week, but none of them were able to unseat Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows. That film remained in first place with 444,000 units / $11.08 million for the week lifting its totals to 1.90 million units / $44.59 million after two.

Project X was well back in second place with 232,000 units / $5.34 million. Its opening week Blu-ray share was 37%, which is okay for this type of release. It is aimed at the right demographic for Blu-ray, but it is not a film that needs to be seen in high definition.

Act of Valor slipped to third place with 93,000 units / $2.32 million over the week for a three-week total of 1.20 million / $26.23 million.

John Carter rose to fourth place with 90,000 units / $2.07 million. It has now sold 1.07 million units and generated $22.17 million. Had the film's theatrical numbers been merely weak and not a complete disaster, its home market numbers might have saved the film.

Safe House traded places with John Carter falling to fifth place with 87,000 units / $2.10 million for the week. After three weeks of release, it has sold 958,000 units and generated $20.27 million in sales.

Wanderlust opened in ninth place with 43,000 units / $856,000. This is not a prime release for high definition, but an opening week Blu-ray share of 37% is strong for this type of release.


The final new release to chart was Seeking Justice, which landed in tenth place with 34,000 units / $671,000. An opening week Blu-ray share of 35% is rather weak, but everything about this film's performance has been weak.

The overall Blu-ray market collapsed when compared to last week, and that's taking into account last week downward revisions.

Sales fell 53% in terms of units and 54% in terms of dollars, which is obviously not a good result, but it is a result of weak new releases and not some weakness in the overall market.

In fact, the overall market was much higher than last year, up 189% in terms of units and 203% in terms of revenue. DVD sales were also down compared to last week, but by a less extreme margin, and were basically flat compared to last year. This meant the overall Blu-ray share fell to 39% in terms of units and 47% in terms of revenue, but that's better than expected for this time of year.

Next week is looking pretty good with a quartet of films that should do significant business on high definition. 21 Jump Street will probably lead the way, but I'm not 100% sure on that. Last year, the best-selling new release was the Lord of the Rings Box Set. That release managed nearly $20 million in opening week sales. There's a chance no release this year will do the same. On the other hand, the second best selling release was Sucker Punch at just over $4 million. This year there is a lot more depth and we should still see solid growth in terms of units, if not revenue.

Happy Fouth of July (And Schedule Information)

Tomorrow, Wednesday, is the Fourth of the July, and it is the absolutely worst day of the week for the holiday to land on. If it lands on the weekend or on a Monday or a Friday, it is just a regular four-day weekend. If it lands on a Tuesday or Thursday, a lot of people take the extra day off and it is an extended weekend. When it lands on a Wednesday, the whole week is a write-off. All studios are closed on Wednesday, most will be closed on Thursday, many will be closed on Friday. This means we will be dealing with incomplete data until Monday. Additionally, because Canada Day holiday was yesterday, regularly scheduled columns for the week will be spread out a bit with the DVD and Blu-ray release report coming out late tonight / early tomorrow, international numbers might be limited to a handful of studio estimates, etc. By Monday evening, we should be completely back on schedule.

DVD Sales: Shadows Linger On Top

None of the new releases were able to overtake Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows for top spot on the DVD sales chart. It repeated in first place with 497,000 units / $7.44 million for the week giving it totals of 1.75 million units / $26.14 million after two. It is already the fifth best selling DVD released in 2012. The best of the new releases was Project X in second place with 394,000 units / $5.87 million. This is a very strong start given the film's production budget. Big Miracle was well back in third place with 185,000 units / $2.95 million. The film flopped in theaters and this is only a marginally better result. Act of Valor slipped a spot to fourth place with 129,000 units / $2.56 million over the week for a total of 926,000 units / $15.65 million after three. Safe House remained in fifth place with 119,000 units / $2.14 million for the week giving it a three-week total of 918,000 units / $15.93 million.

Wanderlust rounded out the top ten with 73,000 units / $1.17 million. There's no way to spin that number in a positive way. Seeking Justice just missed the top ten with 62,000 units / $966,000. This is good compared to its theatrical run, but that's damning it with faint praise.

'21 Jump Street' Puts Sales Chart Under Arrest

21 Jump Street

'Wrath of the Titans' Tops Blu-ray Chart

Two big spring movies battled it out on home video the week ended July 1, and the outcome was a draw.

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment’s 21 Jump Street, the $138.4 million-grossing theatrical hit loosely based on the 1980s TV series of the same name, debuted at No. 1 on the Nielsen VideoScan First Alert chart, which tracks overall disc sales, as well as Home Media Magazine’s video rental chart.

Meanwhile, Warner’s Wrath of the Titans, a ‘PG-13’-rated actioner that earned $83.7 million in U.S. theaters, bowed at No. 1 on Nielsen’s dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart.

Wrath of the Titans generated 55% of its unit sales from Blu-ray, as opposed to just 41% for the ‘R’-rated 21 Jump Street.

A third new release, 20th Century Fox’s Mirror Mirror, a comedic take on the Snow White fairy tale starring Julia Roberts, debuted at No. 3 on both sales charts, just ahead of Warner’s Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, which dropped to No. 4 its third week in stores.

A fourth new release, the critically hailed The Artist, from Sony Pictures, debuted at No. 5 on both sales charts and No. 6 on Home Media Magazine’s rental chart.

Neither Wrath of the Titans nor Mirror Mirror were among the week’s top 20 rentals due to the fact that issuing studios Warner Bros. and 20th Century Fox hold back new releases from selected rental outlets.

Debuting at No. 2 on the rental chart was Paramount’s A Thousand Words, a comedy that grossed just $18.5 million in U.S. theaters. The film bowed at No. 12 on First Alert and No. 21 on Nielsen’s Blu-ray Disc sales chart.

Blu-ray Sales: Wrath of the Blu-rays

Wrath of the Titans led a trio of new releases on top of the Blu-ray sales chart. It sold 800,000 units and generated $18.37 million in revenue, giving the film an opening week Blu-ray share of 55%. A visually-intensive action movie opening with a Blu-ray share above 50% is no longer a noteworthy event.

21 Jump Street placed second with 615,000 units / $11.68 million. Its opening week Blu-ray share was 41%, which is a little lower than expected. I guess it was wiser to judge the film as a comedy rather than an action film. Mirror Mirror only sold 365,000 units with revenue of $7.44 million.

With an opening week Blu-ray share of 35%, it is clear the film connected with families more than adults. Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows fell from first to fourth with 189,000 units / $4.72 million over the week for a total of 2.10 million units / $49.51 million. It is still quite rare for a film to sell 2 million Blu-rays.

The Artist placed fifth with 142,000 units / $2.83 million. Its opening week Blu-ray share of 38% is very strong for a drama, but I'm still a little disappointed overall. It was the big winner at this year's Oscars and that should have boosted its sales more.

There were no other new releases in the top ten, but A Thousand Words placed 21st with 28,000 units / $557,000. Its opening week Blu-ray share was just 22%, which is disappointing, even for a comedy and even for a box office flop.

The overall Blu-ray market was strong no matter how you look at it. It grew 88% in terms of units and 65% in terms of revenue when compared to last week. Compared to last year, there were 215% more units sold, but the revenue only grew by 78%. (Last year the Lord of the Rings Box Set was released, which throws off the numbers.)


DVD sales were almost as strong in most cases, stronger in one. DVD growth was practically the same compared to last week, but revenue growth was larger than Blu-ray growth compared to last year. This meant the overall Blu-ray share fell in terms of revenue to 47% from 55% last year. Meanwhile, the unit share was up to 42%, which is higher than last week and last year.

Next week, well, I'm not looking forward to next week. According to Amazon.com, the best-selling new Blu-ray for the week is Barbarella, which is a cult film, nothing more. If it sells more than 100,000 units, I will be shocked. There is some good news, on the other hand, as last year's new releases were just as bad. 13 Assassins was the best-selling new release on DVD and Blu-ray. Sucker Punch led the way on DVD with less than 85,000 units, while Lord of the Rings Box Set continued to lead the way on Blu-ray with 79,000 units. We should beat that, thanks to the holdovers.

DVD Sales: 21 Leaps to the Top

New releases dominated the DVD sales chart with four of them placing in the top five. Things were led by 21 Jump Street, which sold 869,000 units while generating $14.77 million in opening week sales. This is a fine start, but given its theatrical run, it isn't a great start. On the other hand, it didn't need a great start to break even.

Mirror Mirror placed second with 678,000 units / $10.51 million, which is better than its theatrical run. It did struggle theatrically, so this isn't saying too much.

Wrath of the Titans was right behind with 664,000 units / $9.93 million. At least it did better on Blu-ray, but more on that tomorrow.

Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows fell to fourth place with 238,000 units / $3.56 million for the week and 1.99 million units / $29.83 million after two. That's very good, given the current state of DVD sales.

Rounding the top five was The Artist with 231,000 units / $3.92 million. This is great compared to the average limited release, but not good for the Best Picture winner at the Oscars.

A Thousand Words missed the top five landing in eighth place with 99,000 units / $1.48 million. This is a disaster for a first-run release. The final new release to chart was Damages: Season Four, which placed 13th with 79,000 units / $2.38 million.

With July 3 new releases on the light side due to the July 4 holiday, retailers focused mostly on sales to clear inventory.

Projections: 'Wrath' of the 'Jump'

9 Jul, 2012
By: John Latchem

JumpWrath.jpg

Due to a low-profile slate of new releases July 3, earlier releases are likely to remain atop the sales charts. That means 21 Jump Street and Wrath of the Titans are poised to repeat atop the overall disc and Blu-ray Disc sales charts respectively.

On the rental chart, 21 Jump Street looks to repeat in the top spot, while Universal's Safe House and Fox's Act of Valor come off their 28-day embargoes and should move into a high chart position.

'Street,' 'Wrath,' 'Sherlock' Remain Top Chart Titles
11 Jul, 2012

21 Jump Street

With no hot new home video releases arriving in stores due to the midweek Fourth of July holiday, the home video sales charts for the week ended July 8 are dominated by repeaters.

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment’s 21 Jump Street and Warner’s Wrath of the Titans again were No. 1 and No. 2 on the Nielsen VideoScan First Alert chart, which tracks overall disc sales. Both titles debuted in those same spots a week before.

Another Warner title, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, is No. 3 its fourth week in stores, up from No. 4 the prior week. The sequel swapped spots with 20th Century Fox’s Mirror Mirror, which debuted at No. 3 the previous week and is now No. 4.

Rounding out the First Alert top 5 is Warner’s Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, which shot back up to No. 5 its fifth week in stores after dropping to No. 11 the previous week.

On Nielsen’s dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart, A Game of Shadows is back at No. 1 from No. 4 the prior week, with 50% of its total unit sales coming from the high-def version.

Wrath of the Titans slipped to No. 2 from No. 1 its debut week, while 21 Jump Street and Mirror Mirror each fell back a spot, to No. 3 and No. 4.

The No. 5 spot went to Warner’s The Dark Knight, as anticipation for the theatrical release of volume three in the “Batman” reboot builds.

On Home Media Magazine’s weekly rental chart, 21 Jump Street remained at No. 1, with the second and third chart positions going to a pair of Universal Studios releases that have just ended their rental embargoes, Safe House and Big Miracle. Twentieth Century Fox’s Act of Valor, also off its rental holdback, moved up to No. 4.
