    For the week ending January 23, 2021, here are the stats:

    Percentage of revenue (MPN):
    Blu-ray vs DVD: 37.67% vs 62.33%

    Blu-ray sales total spending: $12.85 million
    DVD sales total spending: $21.26 million

    These stats available from here:

    Media Play News



    Top 10:

    Blu-ray revenue continues to creep downwards toward historic lows as another week goes by without any major new movie releases. The best selling new release was a 4K re-issue of the classic John Carpenter film They Live. It came 6th.

    Closely behind in 7th was another new release, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba - Part 2.

    Now coming out of the top 10, in 16th, was the next new release, another Shout Factory John Carpenter 4K re-issue, this time for Prince of Darkness.

    And better late than never, the 4K release of 2012 rounds off the top 20 in 19th.

    This week's Ultra HD Blu-ray report: The only new release in the top 20 that wasn't a 4K only release was "Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba - Part 2", and it didn't have a UHD edition. 7 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. Tenet+
    2. Love and Monsters+
    3. Harry Potter Complete 8-Film Collection
    4. 1917+
    5. Mulan+
    6. *They Live+
    7. *Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba - Part 2
    8. Honest Thief
    9. *John Wick: Chapters 1-3+
    10. John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum+


    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.

    All of this week's new releases (in the top 20) were Blu-ray or 4K Blu-ray only releases, so they would all technically have a 100% BD sales share rating.

    In our new regular feature where we pine for days past, this time last year we had new releases "Zombieland: Double Tap", "The Addams Family", "Jay & Silent Bob Reboot" and "Black and Blue" in the top 10. This was the week last year when Wuhan went into full lockdown, by the way.

    Blu-ray sales decreased by $8.89m (down 40.9%), with unit sales down 39.7%.

    DVD sales decreased by $3.55m (down 14.3%), with unit sales down 10.1%.

    This meant $12.44 million less in combined revenue for the week.

    Top 10:

    Blu-ray revenue continued to slide as only two new releases were present in the Blu-ray sales top 20.

    Let Him Go was the top-selling new release as well as the overall top-seller for the week, outselling last week's number one, "Batman: Soul of the Dragon".

    Then it was all the way down in 19th for the next new release, the 4K re-release of Do the Right Thing.

    The lack of new releases and the waning popularity of "Tenet" means that this week's Blu-ray results are the lowest since last October.

    This week's Ultra HD Blu-ray report: "Let Him Go" wasn't made available on UHD. 7 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 +):

    Top 10:

    Blu-ray revenue improved slightly off the backs of two fairly good release, which were the top 2 sellers for the week ending February 13, 2021. Greenland and Freaky were those two titles, although "Greenland" easily outsold "Freaky", at least on Blu-ray.

    There was only one other new release in the top 20, Jiang Ziya (Legend of Deification), in 15th.

    The two new releases helped Blu-ray revenue rise to a 6 week high.

    This week's Ultra HD Blu-ray report: None of this week's three new releases in the top 20 were made available on UHD. 6 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 +):

    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).

    "Freaky" narrowly beat "Greenland" in terms of BD sales share, 51.46% versus 50.21%. But both missed out to "Jiang Ziya (Legend of Deification)", which got 52.30%.

    Top 10:

    Blu-ray revenue continued its drop towards record lows as the week's most popular new release was the Korean film The Swordsman. It sold enough copies to get a third-place finish in this week's Blu-ray top 10.

    No less than four other new releases were in the top 20, including My Hero Academia: Season Four, Part Two in 6th, The Informer in 8th, Harley Quinn: The Complete First and Second Seasons in 18th and Lovecraft Country: The Complete First Season in 19th.

    But despite the quantity of new releases, the lack of quality, even say to the level of "Greenland" last week, meant that Blu-ray revenue had to fall.

    This week's Ultra HD Blu-ray report: None of this week's new releases were made available on UHD. Only 4 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 +):

    "The Swordsman" led the BD sales share chart this week with a BD sales share of 69.74%. "Lovecraft Country: The Complete First Season" just missed out on getting over 50% with 49.50%, while "The Informer" had to settle for 38.64%. The other two new releases were Blu-ray only ones.

    No new UHD releases this week, but at the top of the UHD sales share chart was "The Lord of the Rings: The Motion Picture Trilogy" with 28.80%.

    Top 10:

    A decent release happened this week and as a result, Blu-ray revenue rose slightly. The Croods: A New Age was that release, and it was easily the top-selling Blu-ray for the week. A related release was in a distant second place, The Croods 2-Movie Collection.

    There was another new release in 4th place, Wrong Turn, while it's all the way down to 18th for the next and final new release in the top 20, the Blu-ray only release Pump Up the Volume.

    But it was all thanks to "Croods 2" that Blu-ray revenue rose by $3 million over the last week.

    This week's Ultra HD Blu-ray report: Only "The Croods: A New Age" was made available on UHD (just the single movie version, not the two movie collection). Only 5 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 +):

    "The Croods: A New Age" had a 4K UHD sales share of 5.06%, so not the best performer on the more advanced Blu-ray format, most likely due to its intended target audience.

    In our new regular feature where we pine for days past, this time last year we had the new releases "Frozen II", "Knives Out" and "Color Out of Space" in the top 10. So don't be too scared of the big red numbers you see below, very few titles could stand up to "Frozen II" in a normal year, let alone during a pandemic.

    Blu-ray sales decreased by $30.15m (down 66.7%), with unit sales down 62.4%.

    DVD sales decreased by $12.24m (down 34.9%), with unit sales down 27.9%.

    This meant $42.39 million less in combined revenue for the week.

    Despite the release of Monster Hunter, Blu-ray revenue fell compared to the last week.

    "Monster Hunter" only came second on the Blu-ray top 10 chart though, selling fewer copies than "The Croods: A New Age" for the week.

    There were two other new releases in the top 20, with Fatale in 5th and "War of the Worlds" 4K Best Buy Exclusive SteelBook in 15th.

    This week's Ultra HD Blu-ray report: "Monster Hunters" did get a UHD edition. Only 4 titles in this week's top 10 had UHD editions.

    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.

    "Vanguard" just failed to clear the 50% BD sales share hurdle with 47.85%.

    In our new regular feature where we pine for days past, this time last year we had the new releases "Spies in Disguise", "Uncut Gems", "Charlie’s Angels", and "Bombshell" in the top 10.

    Blu-ray sales decreased by $7.92m (down 36.9%), with unit sales down 36.0%.

    DVD sales decreased by $4.31m (down 15.4%), with unit sales down 19.2%.

    This meant $12.23 million less in combined revenue for the week.

    For the week ending March 20, 2021, here are the stats:

    Percentage of revenue (MPN):
    Blu-ray vs DVD: 36.33% vs 63.67%

    Blu-ray sales total spending: $16.54 million
    DVD sales total spending: $28.99 million

    These stats available from here:

    Media Play News



    Top 10:

    Both Blu-ray and DVD revenue increased compared to last week, at roughly the same percentage, and so weekly Blu-ray market share remained largely the same.

    There were five new releases in the top 20, but the best-selling of which was Promising Young Woman, coming in at 3rd on the Blu-ray sales charts.

    The Steelbook edition of Rad was the next new release in 5th, while PG: Psycho Goreman just missed out on a top 10 finish, at 11th.

    The Legend of Korra: The Complete Series debuts in 13th place, while Don’t Tell a Soul rounded off the new releases in the top 20, coming in at 15th.

    This week's Ultra HD Blu-ray report: None of this week's new releases in the top 20 were made available on 4K UHD. 6 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. The Croods: A New Age+
    2. Monster Hunter+
    3. Promising Young Woman

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

    The BD sales share for a particular title 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.

    "Promising Young Woman" had the best BD sales share of this week's new releases, with 60.11%. The next best was "Don’t Tell a Soul" with 42.49%. The others failed to get into the BD sales share top 20, or were Blu-ray exclusives.

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

    Percentage of revenue (MPN):
    Blu-ray vs DVD: 40.58% vs 59.42%

    Blu-ray sales total spending: $18.74 million
    DVD sales total spending: $27.44 million

    These stats available from here:

    Media Play News



    Top 10:

    Blu-ray revenue rose slightly off the backs of Pixar's latest animated hit, Soul. The animated film, having been originally released on Disney+, easily outsold second placed, and also newly released, News of the World.

    Three re-releases on Blu-ray and 4K Blu-ray were the rest of the new releases in the top 20. 2014's Godzilla gets a new 4K Blu-ray release and came in 5th, while the Collector's Edition of Event Horizon on Blu-ray was in 8th.

    And Gattaca also saw a SteelBook 4K re-release (the standard edition is coming later in the year), coming in 12th.

    This week's Ultra HD Blu-ray report: "Soul" and "News of the World" were both available on 4K Ultra HD, in addition to the 4K re-releases. 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. Soul+
    2. News of the World+
    3. The Croods: A New Age+

    6. The Lord of the Rings: The Motion Picture Trilogy+
    7. Greenland
    8. *Event Horizon

    10. Godzilla: King of the Monsters+


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

    The BD sales share for a particular title 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.

    "Soul" had a BD sales share of 76.69%, which compares well to "News of the World" with only 41.51%. The other releases were all Blu-ray exclusives, so technically, they would have a 100% BD sales share.

    For 4K UHD sales share, for the non-exclusive releases, "Soul" managed a UHD sales share of 10.70%, while "News of the World" got 7.52%.

    Top 10:

    The release of Wonder Woman 1984 and the pre-Easter sales bump helped Blu-ray revenue rise above $20 million. It was actually the only "new" new release in the top 20, except for the Wonder Woman 2-Film Pack in 6th place.

    There was the 4K re-release of The Ten Commandments in 5th place.

    In terms of comparing to last year's pre-Easter bump, which was quite disappointing as it occurred in the middle of the COVID-19 lockdown (down $23.90 million compared to 2019's same period!), this year's was slightly better, albeit only slightly. Blu-ray revenue fell by $1.82 million, but DVD rose by $3.92 million.

    This week's Ultra HD Blu-ray report: Both the standalone and 2-film pack for "Wonder Woman 1984" were made available on 4K Ultra HD. Every single title 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 +):

    For the week ending April 10, 2021, here are the stats:

    Percentage of revenue (MPN):
    Blu-ray vs DVD: 36.85% vs 63.15%

    Blu-ray sales total spending: $14.27 million
    DVD sales total spending: $24.45 million

    These stats available from here:

    Media Play News



    Top 10:

    Blu-ray revenue fell back down to earth again thanks to the Easter sales lull, and even a couple of new releases couldn't prevent Blu-ray revenue from falling below the $15 million mark.

    In term of new releases, the one that ranked highest on the Blu-ray sales chart was Shadow in the Cloud in 4th, followed by Barb & Star Go to Vista Del Mar in 7th.

    And in 10th was Earwig and the Witch.

    This year's post-Easter lull was a poor one even compared to last year's middle of the lockdown effort. Blu-ray revenue was down $5.11 million!

    This week's Ultra HD Blu-ray report: None of this week's new releases were made available on 4k UHD. Every single title 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. Wonder Woman 1984+
    2. Soul+
    3. News of the World+
    4. Shadow in the Cloud
    5. Monster Hunter+
    6. *Wonder Woman 2-Film Collection+
    7. Barb & Star Go to Vista Del Mar
    8. The Croods: A New Age+
    9. *The Ten Commandments+
    10. Earwig and the Witch


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

    The BD sales share for a particular title 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 new releases, "Barb & Star Go to Vista Del Mar" had the best BD sales share, with 68.32%. "Shadow in the Cloud" was further behind with 42.99%. "Earwig and the Witch" didn't get into the BD sales share top 10.
