How Indy is performing deeply disturbs me. That's just not right.

Well, Indy will be a long-burner, though. I think it will eventually end up selling around 8-9 million copies which is very solid. I know compared to its theatrical gross and all it is kinda disappointing, but then again, Casino Royale was a huge WoM hit and yet barely sold over 5 million DVDs.


Pretty great for Tinkerbell which is sure a start of a new franchise. With holidays ahead, this will soar to over 5 million sales EASILY. Considering it's not really a classic Disney flick, that's a great number.


I expected more of Journey to the Center of the Earth, especially since Beowulf did very well on DVD even without the 3D aspect.


Very harsh drop for The Incredible Hulk. It will end up with about 3.5 million sold DVDs which is alright for it.


You Don't Mess with the Zohan's sales are just EMBARASSING. It won't even reach 2 million in sales which is about half of Chuck and Larry's. Didn't realize the WoM was that bad.


Solid for The Happening. Lady in the Water sold less than 800,000 units, whereas this one will pass 1.5 million.


Transformers is a MONSTER. It is a question of time until it passes At World's End as the biggest seller released in 2006. Before the release of Transformers 2, its sales will likely be at over 16 million...


Iron Man is still doing pretty well, but just like with Indy, I expected more. With Christmas to come, it will eventually hit 10 million, but I expected at least 12 million, so...

You know, I let my buddy borrow IRONMAN and he enjoyed it alot and then I gave him The INCREDIBLE HULK and he said it was awesome and thought it was better than IRONMAN which shocked me cause you rarely hear something like that.. He has a Plasma TV and said the movie was more action oriented than IRONMAN and lookled quite impressive on a Plasma TV..

I'm excited to see Panda's sales. I assume it'll sell more than 12 million copies in total, WoM really was THAT good.

Totally agreed. Haven't met a person yet who just thought it was only "OK."

The Incredible Hulk is at least twice (well, maybe not twice but still.. :)) as good as Iron Man, can't wait to watch it on DVD again.

Says the dvd was released on Nov. 9 and the date of the chart is of the week ending nov 9 so im sure its 1 day sales, but that would still be a very disspointing 1 day sales.

GM on the other hand seems it indeed bombed.

Yep, it's one day. KFP had an unusual date of releasing the DVD on Sunday instead of Tuesday. The numbers mirrored the rental chart from BOM posted earlier.

This week's sales:

Also current 2008 sales:

http://the-numbers.com/dvd/charts/annual/2008.php


Very good for Kung-Fu Panda, actually, but I expected more. The holidays will help, but this is not getting to the level of Ratatouille and Shrek The Third. Still, 10+ million sales are locked.


Get Smart kinda bombed on DVD. Surprises me a lot, I must admit...but at least it did much better than You Don't Mess with the Zohan which has a truly miserable performance.


Very good number for Hellboy 2: The Golden Army. It could reach 3+ million in sales which is very good for a $80 million-grosser.


It's really embarrassing that Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is behind I Am Legend and Alvin and the Chipmunks in sales. It probably will barely pass 6 million in sales eventually.


Very impressive for Tinker Bell!


Iron Man will definitely get to 10 million with the holidays coming.

WALL-E OWNED EVERYTHING!


http://www.the-numbers.com/dvd/charts/w ... isweek.php


Much better first week than Ratatouille and exactly on par with Cars that went on to sell 15 million units. We'll definitely see over 15 million in sales here as well with Christmas ahead of us. Now it finally shows how good the WoM was. Can't believe it sold more in its first week than Kung Fu Panda during two weeks (though that one did well too so far). WALL-E will end up as the 2nd-biggest DVD of the year.

Wow, best one-week sales since Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix! Impressive. And it's already the second bestselling DVD of the year. All-around excellent, especially since it only made about $15-20 million more than Ratatouille at the box office.

Tropic Thunder also did quite well. Could be over 4 million by the end of the year, which would probably make it the bestselling live-action comedy of the year.

They have paused in the past. I think they'll get to it again.

I'm surprised Get Smart is doing so weak, seemed like the type of movie that does pretty well usually.

What a monster week.. is that all because of christmas-shopping?

http://the-numbers.com/dvd/charts/weekly/thisweek.php

SATC is up 1.280% (!) .. Hulks and Iron Man's rise isn't too shaby either but Indy's # are disapointing again.

I wonder if TDK first day sales will be reported. Everytime a movie breaks first day dvd records its always reported the next day.
Doesnt shrek 2 have the record at like 8mill first day and 14mill in a week?

As if The Dark Knight didn’t have enough money stored in its bat-warehouse-cave, the film has become a huge hit on DVD and Blu-Ray.

Somewhat unsurprisingly, this year’s top cinematic earner has already broken records here, in Canada and in the States the local DVD shoppe.

What records, you ask? Try 600,000 Blu-Ray discs alone in the first day of release, shattering Iron Man’s already impressive 250,000 open day salvo.

Both formats

And when you add both formats together, the film has now sold 3 million copies, around three times the usual figure.

Compare that with the fact that Shrek took four weeks to sell 5.5 million copies in 2001 and last year’s big seller was Transformers, which sold 13.74 million discs - in two and a half months.

Looks like Bruce Wayne won’t have to worry about cash for those wonderful toys for a while yet…

Hancock did alright in first-week sales, just slightly worse than I Am Legend which also made more at the box-office. I think with Christmas ahead it will sell 7-8 million copies which is not amazing, but pretty solid.

WALL-E's numbers are amazing and with more Christmas shopping weeks ahead, it will easily pass Ratatouille's total sales. I see it finishing with 15-16 million sold units, especially after it gets nominated for some Oscars and wins some too.

Kung Fu Panda is hanging in there well too and Christmas will probably push it beyond 10 million sales as well. However, I am kinda disappointed that it won't top Happy Feet (now that apparently had amazing WoM) and Shrek the Third in sales despite what seemed to be great WoM.

Good for Tropic Thunder. It won't repeat Knocked Up's and Superbad's success on DVD, but I see something around 4-5 million in sales which is pretty decent.


I'm still SHOCKED that Indy is trailing behind National Treasure 2 and I Am Legend in DVD sales. With Christmas, it will crawl past 7 million sold units eventually, but for a $300+ million grosser it is kinda embarassing, don't you think?

Meanwhile, I Am Legend is doing very well and will eventually pass 8 million units in sales.

Across the Universe is still performing like a cult film with almost 1.5 million units sold despite a box-office of less thasn $30 million.

By the way, Transformers has now officially become the best-selling DVD released in 2007, passing At World's End.

Night at the Museum will soon pass 10 million which bodes well for ther success of the sequel. Same applies to Iron Man which could actually hit 11-12 million before the release of Iron Man 2.

Superbad is another success story on DVD, selling more DVDs than many many movies that did better at the box-office. It has made more on DVD than in the theatres.

Really?? You don't think that's too good?? Just curious cause I'm no Pro when it comes to what's considered good sales to bad or mediocre in DVD sales.. I was at Blockbuster yesterday and there were alot of copies of TDK both in rentals and sales.. I figured the shelves would be bare for awhile anyway but they weren't..
