Stats:

For the week ending August 24, 2019, here are the stats:

Percentage of revenue (MPN):
Blu-ray vs DVD: 47.38% vs 62.62%

Blu-ray sales total spending: $26.23 million
DVD sales total spending: $29.13 million

These stats available from here:

Media Play News



Top 10:

Blu-ray revenue fell back down to earth after last week's surge, as this week's top selling new release, Brightburn, was not a match for 'Avengers: Endgame' (but who is?).

'Brightburn', for all its efforts, only managed to finish in 3rd place (and selling 9 times fewer copies than 'Endgame'), just ahead of another new release, A Dog’s Journey.

The next new release, The Hustle, was in 6th place, while The Walking Dead: The Complete Ninth Season was in 10th.

Lego DC: Batman - Family Matters rounded off the new releases in the top 20 by finishing in 19th.

So hardly a stellar line-up of new releases, and Blu-ray weekly revenue dropped by more than $30 million compared to the previous week.

This week's Ultra HD Blu-ray report: Only 'Brighburn' had a UHD edition for sale. 7 out of this week's top 10 had a UHD edition.

The complete top 10 chart is below (new releases in bold, Blu-ray exclusives are denoted by *, UHD releases denoted by +):
  1. Avengers: Endgame+
  2. Pokémon Detective Pikachu+
  3. Brightburn+
  4. A Dog’s Journey
  5. Captain Marvel+
  6. The Hustle
  7. Alita: Battle Angel+
  8. *Batman: Hush+
  9. Shazam!+
  10. The Walking Dead: The Complete Ninth Season

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.

'Brightburn' had a good BD sales share percentage as well, with 74.73% of all disc sales being the Blu-ray/4K editions.

The other releases didn't do as well, with 'Lego DC: Batman - Family Matters' coming closest at 52.59%, 'The Hustle' with 46.68% and 'A Dog's Journey' at 42.34%.

'The Walking Dead: The Complete Ninth Season' managed 41.89%, which was up from 39.36% for the eighth season (but down from 42.35% for the 7th season).

For UHD sales share performances, 'Brightburn' managed an impressive 21.59%, only failing to beat 'Endgame' (22.75%) in the UHD sales share chart.

An "all red" week in which every metric below was worse off than the same week a year ago. Somewhat understandable though given that 'Deadpool 2' was released this time last year, and top-selling new release 'Brightburn' was no match.

Blu-ray sales decreased by $18.38m (down 41.2%), with unit sales down 35.5%.

DVD sales decreased by $8.36m (down 22.3%), with unit sales down 19.1%.

This meant $26.74 million less in combined revenue for the week.

Blu-ray's market share decreased from 54.34% to 47.38%.

Top 10:

Three medium-to-large releases this week helped Blu-ray weekly revenue to rise above $30 million.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters was the top seller, not just among new releases, but out of all titles (and yes, even beating 'Avengers: Endgame' - big titles such as this don't seem to have the same kind of staying power as they did in the past, like when 'The Force Awakens' was on top of the Blu-ray chart for weeks on end). It easily beat second placed The Secret Life of Pets 2 despite the latter being a bigger domestic box office draw.

The latter was also available in a 2-movie pack, which came 17th on the Blu-ray sales chart for the week.

Rocketman in 4th place completed the trio of movies mentioned previously.

And available in 4K for the first time with a stunning new transfer is Apocalypse Now: Final Cut, rising as high as 6th.

And finally, in 19th, was The Banana Splits Movie.

This week's Ultra HD Blu-ray report: Other than the 4K re-release of Apocalypse Now, all but 'The Banana Splits Movie' was made available on UHD. Every single title in this week's top 10 had a UHD edition!

The complete top 10 chart is below (new releases in bold, Blu-ray exclusives are denoted by *, UHD releases denoted by +):
  1. Godzilla: King of the Monsters+
  2. The Secret Life of Pets 2+
  3. Avengers: Endgame+
  4. Rocketman+
  5. Pokémon Detective Pikachu+
  6. *Apocalypse Now: Final Cut+
  7. Brightburn+
  8. Captain Marvel+
  9. Alita: Battle Angel+
  10. Shazam!+

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.

Out of the new releases (and remembering that 'Apocalypse Now' counts as a Blu-ray only re-release, and a 4K one at that, so its Blu-ray and UHD sales sale will be nominally at 100% and not included in the Blu-ray market share chart linked below), 'Godzilla: King of the Monsters' had the best BD sales share with 66.75%.

It was just ahead of 'Rocketman' with 64.46%, which itself was ahead of 'The Secret Life of Pets 2' at 58.28%.

Even 'The Banana Splits Movie' managed a sales share of over 50%, just, at 50.90%.

'Godzilla: King of the Monsters' was also released as a Blu-ray 3D, but with only 1.17% of disc sales for this movie being the 3D edition, it begs the question "why bother?" (the answer, of course, is "because some people still watch 3D movies at home).

For UHD sales share performances, 'Godzilla: King of the Monsters' did well with 18.05%, 'Rocketman' managed 13.47%, while 'The Secret Life of Pets 2' got 6.14%.

Top 10:

Despite the release of Men in Black: International, Blu-ray revenue fell compared to the previous week.

The latest MIB movie was one of four new releases in the top 20, with the next best selling new release being Ma in 7th.

Booksmart ranked 9th, while My Hero Academia: Season Three Part Two finished in 19th.

This week's Ultra HD Blu-ray report: Only 'Men in Black: International' was made available on UHD this week. Every single title in this week's top 10 had a UHD edition!



The complete top 10 chart is below (new releases in bold, Blu-ray exclusives are denoted by *, UHD releases denoted by +):
  1. Men in Black: International+
  2. Avengers: Endgame+
  3. Godzilla: King of the Monsters+
  4. The Secret Life of Pets 2+
  5. Rocketman+
  6. Pokémon Detective Pikachu+
  7. Ma
  8. It: Chapter One+
  9. Booksmart
  10. Captain Marvel+

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.

'Men in Black: International' did amazingly with regards to its Blu-ray sales share, 93.00%! A possible reason for this could be the relative lack of a premium the Blu-ray version has compared to the DVD edition (only $2 more on Amazon and the Blu-ray combo version includes the DVD version anyway).

'Booksmart' did well with 58.77%, while 'Ma' just failed to get over 50% with 48.44%.

For UHD sales share performances, 'Men in Black: International' did well too, with 16.16% - it's nowhere near as high as the Blu-ray sales share, but then the 4K edition had more of a price premium ($4 more than the Blu-ray version).
