    For the week ending October 17, 2020, here are the stats:

    Percentage of revenue (MPN):
    Blu-ray vs DVD: 49.88% vs 50.12%

    Blu-ray sales total spending: $25.18 million
    DVD sales total spending: $25.30 million

    These stats available from here:

    Media Play News



    Top 10:

    The Amazon Prime Day sales event helped Blu-ray and DVD sales rise to respectable levels for the first time in a long time, as the online-only sale managed to circumvent the pandemic and the lack of new releases caused by it.

    Sales were still down compared to last year's Prime Day event, which took place in July. That particular week saw Blu-ray sales worth $34.27 million, and this year's event was down 26.5%.

    There were two new releases in the top 20 though. Batman: Death in the Family sold enough copies to reach second place, while Friday the 13th Collection Deluxe Edition wasn't too far behind in 3rd.

    But it was mostly older titles that were heavily discount during Prime Day that sold well for the week, including the likes of Fast & Furious: The Ultimate Ride Collection and Jurassic 5-Movie Collection.

    This week's Ultra HD Blu-ray report: No new 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray releases in the top 20 this week. Only 3 titles in 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. Harry Potter Complete 8-Film Collection
    2. *Batman: Death in the Family
    3. *Friday the 13th Collection Deluxe Edition
    4. Hocus Pocus
    5. Trolls World Tour+
    6. Star Trek: Picard - Season One
    7. 1917+
    8. The Nightmare Before Christmas
    9. Sonic the Hedgehog+
    10. Fast & Furious: The Ultimate Ride Collection


    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.

    Both of the new releases this week were Blu-ray only releases.

    The stats for the week ending October 19, 2019 are as follows. Some small adjustments to the data posted last year (based on more recent updates) have been made and are shown below.

    Finally, we break the unwanted record. Blu-ray sales actually managed to increase compared to the same week last year, due to Amazon Prime Day happening at a different time this year.

    Blu-ray sales increased by $1.51m (up 6.4%), with unit sales down 13.6%.

    DVD sales decreased by $3.35m (down 11.7%), with unit sales down 22.3%.

    This meant $1.84 million less in combined revenue for the week.

    Blu-ray's market share increased from 45.24% to 49.88%.

    For the week ending October 24, 2020, here are the stats:

    Percentage of revenue (MPN):
    Blu-ray vs DVD: 44.09% vs 55.91%

    Blu-ray sales total spending: $17.38 million
    DVD sales total spending: $22.04 million

    These stats available from here:

    Media Play News



    Top 10:

    Following Amazon's Prime Day sales event, Blu-ray revenue fell back below $20 million yet again as the re-release of the Back to the Future: The Ultimate Trilogy on 4K and standard Blu-ray, the best seller this week, couldn't sell enough copies to keep revenue high.

    There were actually quite a few more new releases in the top 20, including Tremors: Shrieker Island in 4th, and the SteelBook version of Princess Mononoke in 9th.

    The same range of SteelBooks also landed My Neighbor Totoro in 12th, while we had Chucky Complete 7-Movie Collection in 11th.

    Cut Throat City was the last new release in the top 20, at 18th.

    This week's Ultra HD Blu-ray report: Only "Back to the Future: The Ultimate Trilogy" was made available on UHD. Only 3 titles in 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. Back to the Future: The Ultimate Trilogy+
    2. *Batman: Death in the Family
    3. Hocus Pocus
    4. Tremors: Shrieker Island
    5. The Nightmare Before Christmas
    6. Harry Potter Complete 8-Film Collection
    7. *Beetlejuice+
    8. Star Trek: Picard - Season One
    9. *Princess Mononoke
    10. Saw: 8-Film Collection


    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 "Back to the Future" ultimate trilogy box set was also made available on DVD (along with standard Blu-ray and 4K versions), Universal might as well have not bothered since the Blu-ray editions had a BD sales share of 95.71% - meaning only 4.29% of buyers chose to buy the DVD edition.

    For the other non Blu-ray exclusive releases, "Cut Throat City" had the best BD sales share with 49.16%, just ahead of "Tremors: Shrieker Island" with 44.46%.

    For 4K, "Back to the Future: The Ultimate Trilogy" had an amazing 79.64% UHD sales share, meaning almost everyone thought the 4K edition of this re-release was the edition to buy (the breakdown is as follows: 79.64% of all BTTF box sets sold were the 4K edition, with 16.07% the standard Blu-ray version, and 4.29% the DVD version).

    In our new regular feature where we pine for days past, this time last year we had new releases "The Lion King" and "Wonder Woman: Bloodlines" in the top 10.

    Blu-ray sales decreased by $13.60m (down 43.9%), with unit sales down 44.6%.

    DVD sales decreased by $7.7m (down 25.9%), with unit sales down 28.7%.

    Top 10:

    A very quiet week (new release wise) saw Blu-ray revenue drop back towards historical lows.

    Only two new releases were in the top 20, and the best selling of which, and the week's overall top seller, was My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising.

    The other was the Criterion release of Parasite, in 9th.

    This week's Ultra HD Blu-ray report: Neither of these two new releases were available on UHD. Only 3 titles in 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. *My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising
    2. Back to the Future: The Ultimate Trilogy+

    "My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising" was a Blu-ray exclusive, while "Parasite" didn't sell enough copies on Blu-ray to get into the BD sales share top 20.

    For the week ending November 7, 2020, here are the stats:

    Percentage of revenue (MPN):
    Blu-ray vs DVD: 40.55% vs 59.45%

    Blu-ray sales total spending: $14.29 million
    DVD sales total spending: $20.95 million

    These stats available from here:

    Media Play News



    Top 10:

    Blu-ray sales improved ever slightly compared to last week, while DVD sales declined. This allowed weekly Blu-ray market share to rise back above 40%.

    The Blu-ray top 10 was all over the place this week, most likely because of the low sales numbers involved, but the top-selling title was still My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising.

    The top-selling new release, in 7th place, was the 4K re-release of V for Vendetta, while "new" new release Antebellum was in 8th place.

    Game of Thrones: The Complete Series, another new release, was in 9th place.

    This week's Ultra HD Blu-ray report: "V for Vendetta" was, of course, available on UHD, but so was "Antebellum". 8 titles in 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. *My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising
    2. Joker+
    3. 1917+
    4. Birds of Prey and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn+
    5. Knives Out+
    6. Sonic the Hedgehog+
    7. *V for Vendetta+
    8. *Antebellum+
    9. Game of Thrones: The Complete Series
    10. Midway+


    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.

    For the non Blu-ray exclusive releases, "Game of Thrones: The Complete Series" had the best BD sales share, with 94.19%. "Antebellum" did less well, just failing to get over the 50%.

    For the UHD releases, "Antebellum" managed a UHD sales share of 11.94%.

    Top 10:

    A big improvement for Blu-ray this week because we have the first A-list release for a while, even if that release was originally released as a premium streaming title.

    Disney's live action remake of Mulan easily topped the sales chart, while there was another major new release in 9th place, Bill & Ted Face the Music. Mulan's success shows that despite not having a theatrical release, and despite it becoming available for streaming by Disney+ subscribers soon, many were still attracted to the physical media edition.

    Sales of older titles also saw many titles return to the top 10, including Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker in 8th.

    This week's Ultra HD Blu-ray report: "Mulan" was made available on UHD. 8 titles in 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. Mulan+
    2. Harry Potter Complete 8-Film Collection
    3. Jumanji: The Next Level+
    4. Sonic the Hedgehog+
    5. Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw+
    6. Dolittle+
    7. Trolls World Tour+
    8. Star Wars: Episode IX — The Rise of Skywalker+
    9. Bill & Ted Face the Music
    10. Frozen II+

    "Bill & Ted Face the Music" managed 59.77%.

    For once, we have a week without every metric below being worse off than the same week last year. In fact, everything was improved!

    Blu-ray sales decreased by $2.15m (up 8.9%), with unit sales up 54.4%.

    DVD sales decreased by $2.1m (up 6.5%), with unit sales up 33.3%.

    This meant $4.25 million more in combined revenue for the week.

    Blu-ray's market share increased from 42.74% to 43.29%.
