    For the week ending November 27, 2021, here are the stats:

    Percentage of revenue (MPN):
    Blu-ray vs DVD: 46.29% vs 53.71%

    Blu-ray sales total spending: $26.27 million
    DVD sales total spending: $30.48 million

    These stats are available from here:

    Top 10:

    Black Friday pre-sales and declining interest in physical media all contributed to a lacklustre Black Friday sales event, where Blu-ray sales were down 27% compared to last year's sales event.

    As usual for Black Friday, there were no new releases in the top 20. Instead, it was dominated by titles that were on sale during the event (such as "Wonder Woman 1984", "1917"), along with recent best-sellers "F9: The Fast Saga", "Jungle Cruise"), and a sprinkle of Christmas favourites ("The Grinch", "Elf").

    So just how bad was BF2021? Blu-ray sales were down 27.1% as mentioned earlier, but that's on top of the 54.5% decline that we saw last year. At that time, we attributed much of the decline to the pandemic and the lack of new releases. And while things are still not back to 100% on this front, the number of big releases have improved, and yet, revenue was still down. This suggests COVID-19 isn't to blame for everything and that declining demand for physical media may be at play, although the pandemic is still a big factor indirectly, due to many releases being fast-tracked to streaming. DVD sales were down too, but that was always to be expected.

    Compared to six years ago, the peak of Black Friday Blu-ray sales, revenue was down a massive $79.98 million, or 75.3%!

    This week's Ultra HD Blu-ray report: All 10 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. F9: The Fast Saga+
    2. Jungle Cruise+
    3. Godzilla vs. Kong+
    4. Wonder Woman 1984+
    5. The Grinch+
    6. Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins+
    7. Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard+
    8. Zack Snyder’s Justice League+
    9. Free Guy+
    10. Mortal Kombat+


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

    For a particular title, the BD sales share is the percentage of disc packages sold for this title that contained the film's Blu-ray edition (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.

    In terms of BD sales share, "Zack Snyder’s Justice League" had the best set of results, 89.87%. While it was also top for 4K sales share, at 43.61%, followed by "Mortal Kombat" at 32.68%.

    As mentioned earlier, and confirmed here in clear detail, everything was down compared to the last Black Friday sales, which was already one of the worst on record. Disappointing.

    Blu-ray sales decreased by $9.77m (down 27.1%), with unit sales down 34.3%.

    DVD sales decreased by $6.69m (down 18.0%), with unit sales down 29.9%.

    This meant $16.46 million less in combined revenue for the week.

    For the week ending December 4, 2021, here are the stats:

    Percentage of revenue (MPN):
    Blu-ray vs DVD: 42.91% vs 57.09%

    Blu-ray sales total spending: $25.11 million
    DVD sales total spending: $33.41 million

    Top 10:

    Cyber Monday 2021 is as much a fizzle as Black Friday 2021, with Blu-ray sales down 27% on already low numbers from last year.

    This is despite the big sales event being coupled with a fairly big release in the form of Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, which was easily the top-selling title for the week.

    Due to the sales event and the release of a big title, other releases stayed away from the week, which isn't unusual.

    What was unusual was the 27% drop in Blu-ray sales compared to BF2020, which was already almost 29% down on 2019. That's down a total of 48%, or $23 million, compared to the last pre-pandemic Cyber Monday. As mentioned in our Black Friday analysis, not all of this can be written off as pandemic related. The increased adoption of streaming services during the pandemic and the fast-tracked release of titles like "Shang-Chi" on streaming has further diminished the role of physical media for home entertainment. Perhaps when release windows return back to normal (or whatever the new normal is), physical media with its early release date will make a small comeback. But it's unlikely to return to pre-pandemic levels. This is the new normal.

    This week's Ultra HD Blu-ray report: "Shang-Chi" was made available on 4K. 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. Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings+
    2. Jungle Cruise+

    5. Harry Potter Complete 8-Film Collection
    6. Free Guy+

    9. The Suicide Squad+

    Top 10:

    Despite a couple of good releases in the top 20, and also the beginning of the holiday shopping period, Blu-ray revenue failed to overcome the $20 million barrier yet again. Blu-ray sales were down 27% compared to the same week last year.

    Ron's Gone Wrong was the best-selling of all the new releases, coming in third.

    Rick and Morty: Season 5 was next on the chart, with Cry Macho in 6th.

    The 4K release of Who Framed Roger Rabbit was in 7th, while outside the top 10, the 4K release of Krampus was 12th.

    Dear Evan Hansen had to settle for a 14th place finish.

    This week's Ultra HD Blu-ray report: "Ron’s Gone Wrong" and "Cry Macho" were both made available on 4K. 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 +):

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

    For a particular title, the BD sales share is the percentage of disc packages sold for this title that contained the film's Blu-ray edition (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.

    Of this week's non Blu-ray/4K exclusives, "Rick and Morty: Season 5" had the best BD sales share, with 61.96%.

    "Ron's Gone Wrong" wasn't too far behind with 60.57%. "Dear Evan Hansen" got 47.76%, but "Cry Macho" didn't do too well with only 40.57%.

    On 4K, "Ron's Gone Wrong" got a 4K sales share of 10.52%, but "Cry Macho" had to settle for 5.26%.

    Another "all red" week in which all stats below are in the red and down compared to the same week last year. That week hardly had any new releases.

    Blu-ray sales decreased by $7.31m (down 27.1%), with unit sales down 33.5%.

    DVD sales decreased by $7.95m (down 18.9%), with unit sales down 21.1%.

    This meant $15.26 million less in combined revenue for the week.

    Finally, some semblance of the holiday sales period with Blu-ray weekly revenue nearly going above $30 million, and DVD revenue getting above $40 million since this time last year. Blu-ray weekly market share also rose above 40%.

    While these sales are mostly about older releases, there were a couple of new releases this week as well, including the top-seller for the week, Venom: Let There Be Carnage. It was by far the best-selling title of the week, and the Venom 2-Movie Collection also ranked high, in 5th.

    The Last Duel finished in 10th place while the 4K and 4K SteelBook release of The Wolf of Wall Street was in 16th.

    This week's Ultra HD Blu-ray report: "Venom: Let There Be Carnage" was available in 4K, but not the 2-movie collection, while "The Last Duel" was also a 4K release. 9 titles out of this week's top 10 had UHD editions.

    Still an "all red" week where all metrics were down compared to the same week last year, but it wasn't by much to be honest, so we'll call it a draw.

    Blu-ray sales decreased by $1.51m (down 4.9%), with unit sales down 15.5%.

    DVD sales decreased by $1.23m (down 2.8%), with unit sales down 9.4%.

    This meant $2.74 million less in combined revenue for the week.

    Top 10:

    We're finally seeing some holiday action, and for the first time in a while, results are better than what they were last year. Although part of this could be explained by this year's reporting week having an extra pre-Christmas sales day than last year's same week.

    But it was probably mainly due to one of this year's biggest movies arriving on Blu-ray (and one that wasn't available on subscription streaming beforehand), No Time to Die.

    It was one of three new releases in the top 20, the next one being the Blu-ray exclusive Demon Slayer: Mugen Train in 4th, and the final one being The Many Saints of Newark in 18th.

    A title like "The Many Saints of Newark" probably would have done better than 18th had it not been available on subscription streaming (HBO Max, to be exact), so studios are definitely cannibalizing their home video revenue in order to promote their streaming platforms - they must feel these platforms are the future of home video, and they're probably right.

    Blu-ray sales were up 15% compared to the same week last year, and even DVD sales improved. Another interesting phenomenon is the supply chain issues causing movies to be less discounted at the big retailers. This may be driving revenue up artificially. If this were the case, unit sales would be static or in decline while revenue was up, which is exactly the situation this week for Blu-ray and DVD sales (see below). Average disc cost for Blu-ray rose from $18.56 this time last year to $21.21 this year. Average DVD prices were up 11% as well.

    This week's Ultra HD Blu-ray report: Both "No Time to Die" and "The Many Saints of Newark" were made available on 4K. 8 titles out of this week's top 10 had UHD editions.

    For a particular title, the BD sales share is the percentage of disc packages sold for this title that contained the film's Blu-ray edition (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.

    "No Time to Die" was very popular on Blu-ray, receiving a BD sales share of 73.52% - this means only 26.48% opted for the DVD version of the film. It also did well on 4K Blu-ray, with 27.24% opting for the 4K edition (so the breakdown goes 26.48% DVD, 27.24% 4K Blu-ray, and 46.28% opting for the standard Blu-ray version).

    "The Many Saints of Newark" was further behind with a BD sales share of 59.81% and a 4K sales share of 11.64%.

    The start of the new year is here, and as expected, a big dropoff in sales has occurred as does happen this time of the year. The trend is also towards not having many new releases at this time, and the first week of 2022 did not deviate from this.

    The sole new release in the top 20 was The French Dispatch, and it only came 5th in any case, so hardly a best-seller. It also wasn't made available on 4K.
