Lost is big, really BIG. Especially for TV series. When was the last time, a TV series was that successful in rentals? It should finish with over $20 million in rentals.

The Longest Yard seems to be huge in rentals as well. A $65+ million rentals gross is not ruled out.

Million Dollar Baby is doing really well too. Heading toards $70 million, it seems.

I always write down the top 50 each week and then type them up to post here if anyone is interested. But please don't copy and paste the chart I type up here.

Sorry for the lack of charts, lately. I've been busy, but I'll try to catch up with this thread...

http://www.imdb.com/boxoffice/rentals

Anyways, The Longest Yard is on a roll. It should be able to pull in around $50-55 million in rentals, which is excellent. I'm actually surprised that The Interpreter beat out The Amityville Horror last week. Horror movies are usually big rentals, but I guess not this one.

Too early of a release for Amityville? Maybe they should have waited until mid-October.

Not bad for Kingdom of Heaven. Everything else did pretty bad, though. I'm not surprised with Unleashed, consider how retarded Blockbuster was with the number of copies each store gets for that movie.

I don't think it's surprising THE INTERPRETER beat out AMITYVILLE HORROR. Movies like THE INTERPRETER usually do better than movies like AMITYVILLE HORROR. Last October DAWN OF THE DEAD debuted at #5 with 5.02 Million and WHITE CHICKS debuted at #1 with 10.6 Million, and this was Halloween month, actually to be more specific it was Halloween week. Its last week in the top 50 it was at 21.8 Million.


Anyway, I typed the chart up here along with my comments: http://s8.invisionfree.com/The_MovieTalk_Boards/index.php?showtopic=336&st=420&#last

I will say quick though that HIGH TENSION did surprisingly great for itself! I was really worried it wouldn't be able to do 2 Million. But UNLEASHED did shockingly bad. It's really something that HIGH TENSION can do more than it its first week in stores. I don't get why Rogue Pictures movies tend to do poor in rentals. HIGH TENSION debuted with more than double what SEED OF CHUCKY did last June. I think CRY WOLF should do decent though.

BB sold around 4m copies it's first week out http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/thr/ho ... 1001390710

Pretty damn good, will easily pass X2 in sales ( Did around 5.3m total ) it aint passing Spidey 2 though ( 9.9m total ) should finish around 7m-8m.

Great rentals and sales start for Batman Begins. It should make another $200+ million and rentals and sales altogether. Combied with a $370+ million worldwide total, that will make a great profit for WB when all is said and done. Roll on the sequel!

The Longest Yard is still doing very well in rentals, but it still lags way behind 50 First Dates. Should be good for a $60+ million total in rentals, I suppose.

Very disappointing start for Land of the Dead.

Alexander actually ended up pretty bhig on DVD. It will pass $45 million in rentlas and I am sure it did decently in sales too. It won't be a big profit, but I don't think the losses will be huge for it either.

Lost is HUGE for a TV series. It will easily pass $20 million.

Very poor DVD sales for Batman Begins. But the rentals numbers are very good. Looks like it will be a big "rental" movie instead of a "buy" movie.

You think BATMAN BEGINS had poor sales?? Really?? That seems pretty respectable for what it sold to me until SITH comes out next week and trounces it.. :-k

How is 4 million copies in one week bad?

It's pretty damn good. It wasn't meant to set records like freakin' Sith or Shrek.

Those sales seem very solid to me, especially at a time where dvd sales and rentals are kinda at an all time low. I mean by the end of the year I can see it having a total around 7m-8m ( it'll hold its own week to week, then you got Christmas which will help it out ). As I mentioned it's easily gonna surpass X2 which is a movie that did around the same #'s at the BO as Begins.

I agree with you BKB, I dont see how jb007 finds 4mil copies sold as 'bad'....Everyone gets a slice of the pie but lets look at some raw numbers.

There are 2 version, standard and deluxe. First week prices at Best Buys were $14.99 & $22.99(I think). Lets guess that 8 out of 10 copys sold were the standard version. At $15 x 8 + $23 x 2 that give you an average of $16.6. I know the selling price will change but remember its up this week and will stay there for at least 4-6 weeks before dropping. Its a good number to go with.

Now multiply that by 4mil and you get $66,400,000. Not bad for the first week out of the gate. Lets say a year from release date it has a multiplier of 2.5 in sales(which I think is low balling it). $166,000,000 or 10million copies sold, not a bad take.

Heres the list of year to date dvd sales/rentals as of 10-8-05

Rank Title (label/distributor) Release B.O. DVD sales rev All rentals plus VHS sales rev Total
1 THE INCREDIBLES (DIS) 3/15/05 261 279 51 330
2 SHARK TALE (DW/UNI) 2/8/05 160 150 50 200
3 NATIONAL TREASURE (DIS) 5/3/05 173 139 73 212
4 MEET THE FOCKERS (UNI) 4/19/05 280 127 72 199
5 RAY (UNI) 2/1/05 75 118 56 174

A lot of people here and other boards on the internet were acting as if BB had this out of the world WOM. If it could sell only 4 million units in one week, it would lbe ucky to get to 7 million maybe 8 Million total and that is being generous. BB will not even beat sales of National Treasure. So much for this huge underground support for the movie, which I always correctly called BS.

As for Lecter, you should know, you are the king of incompetent statements and predictions.

No amount of defensive BS is going make BB DVD sales look good.

Some BB fanatics on BOM were predicting 30 million plus units sales. :hahaha:

Yeah? Well, they kinda lack... common sense.

Batman Begins did just fine - I would never call it bad, like you did. That's kinda... absurd. No amount of defensive "Batman Begins is a disappointment of a film, therefore, the box-office sales and DVD sales suck, too!" will change that.

It is a matter of expectations. 4M units sold in one week is quite common and decent for most movies.

Anyway, as you know very well, some people on KJ and on the internet were acting BB was the second coming of Titanic with regards to legs and WOM. They also claimed if you randomly check people on the streets they would chose BB over ROTS.

Given that kind of WOM, groundswell support as per these people, don't you think sales of 4M units is underwhelming/poor/bad?

P.S.:

Take a look at some of the first day sales numbers (NOT WEEK)

SM 7M
Reloaded 4M
MTF 3M
AVP 1.9M

Whats your point? Those movies were incredibly frontloaded in dvd sales, everyone bought them in droves kinda like how they were frontloaded at the BO ( except SM and MTF ) I dont know why you're comparing it ot those movies anyways, they made much more at the BO then Begins and anyways when all is said and done Begins will have sold just as much as Fockers if not more.

Reloaded total sales since release are around 8.5m
AVP 4m
Spider - 12m
Meet the Fockers - 7m

And anyways WB hasnt released any numbers for Begins, its just industry sources who knows if it even mentions Delux numbers and if Delux sold as good as I think it is that means it made alot of profit since it cost so much more then your average dvd.

MTF is Meet the Fockers.

And, yeah, like Kill said, AVP ended up selling around 4 million units total.
