Stats:

For the week ending January 26, 2019, here are the stats:

Percentage of revenue (MPN):
Blu-ray vs DVD: 43.87% vs 56.13%

Blu-ray sales total spending: $21.26 million
DVD sales total spending: $27.20 million

These stats available from here:

Media Play News



Top 10:

Blu-ray sales slipped further despite the release of First Man. While the film topped the charts this week, it was a disappointment at the box office, and so could not really help lift Blu-ray sales.

The problem is made worse by the fact that the next new release was all the way down to 12th. That new release was The Hate U Give.

American Renegades didn't sell enough copies on Blu-ray to make it to the top 20 but got as high as 16th on the combined Blu-ray and DVD chart.

This week's Ultra HD Blu-ray report: Both 'First Man' and 'The Hate U Give' were available on UHD. 8 titles out of this week's top 10 had UHD editions.

The complete top 10 chart is below (new releases in bold, Blu-ray exclusives are denoted by *, UHD releases denoted by +):
  1. First Man+
  2. Halloween+
  3. Smallfoot
  4. Crazy Rich Asians+
  5. The Predator+
  6. Once Upon a Deadpool
  7. The Meg+
  8. Venom+
  9. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom+
  10. Goosebumps 2+

Blu-ray, Ultra HD Blu-ray Sales Share:

BD sales share for a title is the percentage of disc packages sold for this movie that contained the Blu-ray edition of the film (including combos, and Ultra HD editions). So a BD sales share of 60% indicates that 60% of disc packages sold for this particular film contained the Blu-ray edition for this film, and so anything over 50% means that the Blu-ray version of the film was more popular than the DVD version.

'First Man' had a first week BD sales share of 71.81%. 'The Hate U Give' didn't do as well, with 43%, which was still better than the 33% for 'American Renegades'.

'First Man' also topped the UHD sales share chart, with an impressive 23.74%. For 'The Hate U Give', its UHD sales share was 4.74%.

Top 10:

Blu-ray sales improved slightly thanks to a slew of new releases, including every title in the Blu-ray top 3.

The Nutcracker and the Four Realms topped the sales charts, easily beating Blu-ray only release Reign of the Supermen. Hunter Killer was only slightly behind 'Reign of Supermen' in third place.

The first time re-release of Willow by Disney, following their takeover of Lucasfilm, was 7th, while the 2018 remake of Suspiria was 10th (and was also a Blu-ray only release).

Outside of the top 10, Doctor Who: The Complete Eleventh Series was 17th, while Indivisible finished in 18th place.

This week's Ultra HD Blu-ray report: All of the titles in the top 3, 'The Nutcracker and the Four Realms', 'Reign of the Supermen' and 'Hunter Killer', were available on UHD. 7 titles out of this week's top 10 had UHD editions.

The complete top 10 chart is below (new releases in bold, Blu-ray exclusives are denoted by *, UHD releases denoted by +):
  1. The Nutcracker and the Four Realms+
  2. *Reign of the Supermen+
  3. Hunter Killer+

So a BD sales share of 60% indicates that 60% of disc packages sold for this particular film contained the Blu-ray edition for this film, and so anything over 50% means that the Blu-ray version of the film was more popular than the DVD version.

No surprise that re-release 'Willow' had the best BD sales share out of the previously mentioned titles, with 91.74%.

'The Nutcracker and the Four Realms' managed to get 72%, while 'Hunter Killer' got 57.26%.

Further down the list, 'Doctor Who: The Complete Eleventh Series' managed 49.07%, while 'Indivisible' got 34.05%.

For the UHD sales share, it was actually 'Hunter Killer' that had the best result, with 11.70%. 'Reign of the Supermen' followed with 10.52% while 'The Nutcracker and the Four Realms' managed 8.04%.

Percentage of revenue (MPN):
Blu-ray vs DVD: 43.00% vs 57.00%

Top 10:

Both Blu-ray and DVD revenue rose slightly compared to the last week, but weekly Blu-ray market share remains largely unchanged.

The rise in disc revenue was largely due to the release of this week's top seller, The Grinch.

It easily outsold the number two title, also a new release, Widows.

Close behind in third place was The Girl in the Spider’s Web.

That was it for new releases, not only in the top 10 but also within the entire top 20.

This week's Ultra HD Blu-ray report: Both 'The Grinch' and 'Widows' were made available on UHD. 9 titles out of this week's top 10 had UHD editions, all except for new release "The Girl in the Spider's Web".

The complete top 10 chart is below (new releases in bold, Blu-ray exclusives are denoted by *, UHD releases denoted by +):
  1. The Grinch+
  2. Widows+
  3. The Girl in the Spider’s Web
  4. The Nutcracker and the Four Realms+
  5. Hunter Killer+
  6. *Reign of the Supermen+
  7. Halloween+
  8. Venom+
  9. The House With a Clock in Its Walls+
  10. First Man+

Blu-ray, Ultra HD Blu-ray Sales Share:

BD sales share for a title is the percentage of disc packages sold for this movie that contained the Blu-ray edition of the film (including combos, and Ultra HD editions). So a BD sales share of 60% indicates that 60% of disc packages sold for this particular film contained the Blu-ray edition for this film, and so anything over 50% means that the Blu-ray version of the film was more popular than the DVD version.

'The Grinch' had the best BD sales share out of this week's other two new releases. It managed a BD sales share of 63.44%.

"The Girl in the Spider's Web" got 61.53%, while 'Widows' was further behind at 50.90%.

A rare treat this week in that 'The Grinch' also had a 3D version, but with only a 0.78% 3D sales share (less than 8 3D sales per 1,000 disc sales), it's no surprise why it has become so rare for titles to be released in 3D.

For UHD sales share results, 'Widows' actually did better than 'The Grinch', 9.51% versus 5.82%.

Top 10:

A big A-list release helped Blu-ray revenue rise almost $10 million compared to the previous week. That release was Bohemian Rhapsody, which was so popular that it beat last week's number one, 'The Grinch', but almost a 4-to-1 margin.

With such a big release arriving in the week, it's common for other releases to avoid the week, and as such, the only other new release in the top 20 was Nobody's Fool.

This week's Ultra HD Blu-ray report: Only 'Bohemian Rhapsody' was made available on UHD. 8 titles out of this week's top 10 had UHD editions.

The complete top 10 chart is below (new releases in bold, Blu-ray exclusives are denoted by *, UHD releases denoted by +):

  2. The Grinch+

All the way at 20th on the BD sales share chart was this week's other new release, "Nobody's Fool", with a BD sales share of 36.97%.

'Bohemian Rhapsody' sold well on 4K, with an Ultra HD Blu-ray sales share of 13.30%.

Top 10:

Another big release and Blu-ray sales hovered above the $30 million mark for the second week in succession. That big release was, of course, A Star is Born, which easily outsold last week's number one, 'Bohemian Rhapsody', by a considerable margin.

There were a couple of other releases, like Robin Hood in 3rd place, and Overlord in 4th, but these could barely compare to this week's top release.

Another new release, Backtrace, finished outside of the top 10 at 16th.

This week's Ultra HD Blu-ray report: Only 'Backtrace' skipped on providing a UHD release this week. 9 titles out of this week's top 10 had UHD editions.

The complete top 10 chart is below (new releases in bold, Blu-ray exclusives are denoted by *, UHD releases denoted by +):
  1. A Star is Born+
  2. Bohemian Rhapsody+

It was 'Overlord' that had the week's best BD sales share, topping the chart with 71.70%.

'Robin Hood' was next best with 61.11%, while top-seller 'A Star Is Born' managed 53.10%.

'Backtrace' got 38.71%.

On UHD, 'Overlord' reigned supreme with a UHD sales share of 17.86% (meaning 24.9% - 17.86 divided by 71.70 - of all Blu-ray editions sold contained the UHD edition), followed by 'Robin Hood' with 12.45% (20.4% of all Blu-ray sales) and then 'A Star Is Born' with 7.71% (14.5% of all Blu-ray sales).

Top 10:

A big release and several big (Blu-ray only) re-releases helped Blu-ray revenue push above the $40 million mark, and helped weekly Blu-ray market share cross over the 50% threshold.

Ralph Breaks the Internet did more than $200 million at the box office and definitely counts as a big release. It easily outsold everything else this week, including the re-release (on Blu-ray and 4K) of The Little Mermaid.

Also coming to 4K for the first time, and this time via a different studio is Captain America: The First Avenger, which came in 8th place. Those who follow the Marvel Cinematic Universe will know that the first Captain America movie was released by Paramount before Disney gobbled everything up - it's now Disney's turn to re-release this film as a ''Cinematic Universe Edition", and also available for the first time in 4K.

In 9th place was another new release, Mary Queen of Scots, while outside the top 10 saw Between Worlds finish in 11th place and The Possession of Hannah Grace finish 13th.

This week's Ultra HD Blu-ray report: 'Ralph Breaks the Internet', 'The Little Mermaid', 'Captain America: The First Avenger', and 'Mary Queen of Scots' were all available on UHD. Every single title out of this week's top 10 had UHD editions!

The complete top 10 chart is below (new releases in bold, Blu-ray exclusives are denoted by *, UHD releases denoted by +):
  1. Ralph Breaks the Internet+
  2. *The Little Mermaid+
  3. Bohemian Rhapsody+
  4. A Star is Born+

'Ralph Breaks the Internet' did well on Blu-ray, with a first week Blu-ray sales share of 79.09%.

'Mary Queen of Scots' managed 68.48%, while 'Between Worlds' failed to get over 50% with 48.05%.

'The Possession of Hannah Grace' got 42.51%.

All the other new releases were Blu-ray only releases.

On UHD, 'Captain America: The First Avenger' had a huge 4K sales share of 85.87% (meaning almost every copy sold this week was for the 4K edition), while 'The Little Mermaid' had to settle for a UHD sales share of 21.32% (which is still not bad, but perhaps not as good as a 4K re-release was expected to be).

'Mary Queen of Scots' got a UHD sales share of 10.7% while this week's top seller, 'Ralph Breaks the Internet', managed 8.35%.

Despite this week's big releases and re-releases, almost every metric below was still in red due to the fact that this time last year was when the big Disney release 'Coco' and re-release 'Lady and the Tramp: Signature Collection' was made available on Blu-ray.

Blu-ray sales decreased by $5.27m (down 10.9%), with unit sales down 11.9%.

DVD sales decreased by $12.4m (down 22.4%), with unit sales down 23.9%.

This meant $17.67 million less in combined revenue for the week.
