So has Transformers already sold more than At World's End?

And are there any total numbers available for The Notebook?


Nope, At World's End is still around 220,000 copies ahead.

The Notebook's sales are not known, no. All we know is that it sold over 2 million copies just last year!


And as for neo's link:

It says that Iron Man sold 7.2 million DVDs and 500,000 Blu-Ray's in its first week - better first week sales than for Transformers!


I man, I already can't wait for The Dark Knight's 1st week number. It'll definitely be above 11 million.

This week's sales! (Iron Man's number!!!)

Well, much lower than what HR reported and a lot lower than Transformers' and At World's End's numbers. I think we're looking at a total of around 11-12 million which is still very good of course, but less than I expected. I assume a lot went into Blu Ray, though.

A History of Violence sold over 2.5 million copies so far. Which makes Eastern Promises' performance seeming all the more pitiful as it sold less than 700,000 copiesin total. Looks like AHOV had really amazing WoM.

Good Night, and Good Luck. sold almost 1.4 million copies which is a pretty good number for the flick, IMO.


Next week, we'll know total sales numbers for Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. I expect something around 11.5-12 million.

Ok, it seems that the-numbers almost always has much lower numbers than initially reported for big releases. Are we certain about the accuracy of their data? That's always kind of weighed on me.

Oct. 6-12: http://www.the-numbers.com/dvd/charts/w ... 081012.php

Good for Sleeping Beauty, and Iron Man is now the biggest DVD of the year after two weeks both in total DVDs and revenue.

As for the other two new releases, that's pretty impressive for The Happening, especially considering how Lady in the Water did (399,000 first week, 790,000 overall), the terrible WOM...and those numbers for Zohan. WOW. Was WOM really that bad? Chuck and Larry had TRIPLE the first week sales! It might not even reach 1 million copies, which for a (barely) $100 million grosser is...bad.

Archived date (Mar. 6-12): http://www.the-numbers.com/dvd/charts/w ... 060312.php

Strong sales for Goblet of Fire. And it appears to have sold about the sales amount of copies as Order of the Phoenix (10.99 million for GoF, 10.97 for OotP). Pretty remarkably consistent franchise.

Also, for a film that had such a ho-hum reaction and doesn't really seem like a must-own DVD, nearly 3 million copies is quite good for Jarhead.

And I'm really interested to see the total sales for Walk the Line and ESPECIALLY Crash. I think the latter might be as high as 5 million copies over its lifetime.

Looks like The INCREDIBLE HULK is doing quite well in sales for DVD, especially on BLU-RAY..

Quote:
Looking ahead, Universal's "The Incredible Hulk" is poised to be the top seller this week, with sales of nearly 2 million units on Tuesday, its first day in stores, according to studio estimates. More than 14% of those sales were on Blu-ray.

WTF??! It sold 2 million copies on day 1 alone? Makes no sense since IM sold 5+ million copies in 1 week and at the end will end up selling around 8-9 million total. I was hoping it will sell as many copies as TF but ah well.

Nah TIH won't sell more than 2.3 million copies for 1st week.

I was in Blockbuster Video last night picking up my 3 Disc Edition reserved copy of this and the shelf was cleaned out, both in rentals and sales.. To me this proves that despite TIH only making 3 Million more than the 2003 movie, that alot of people missed the boat on this in theatres and are making up for it on DVD.. It was damn good, but your always going to get the folks who defend Ang Lee's version cause it's Ang Lee.. Great director but wrong director for a character like this...

Walk the Line sold more in its first week than Indy?! (sure the BluRay had an effect as well, but still!). Also, a total of 7.3 million sales for Walk the Line is just fucking tremendous. It was pretty much as big as The Departed on DVD and bigger than Juno and No Country for Old Men TOGETHER.

Pride and Prejudice did VERY well too. I mean it sold over 3 million units, making a lot more in DVD sales than in theatrical grosses.

Out of curiousity, but how much has The INCREDIBLE HULK made thus far?? I've been to Blockbuster twice since it's release and the rentals and sales look pretty decent, at least as good as IRONMAN.. I can't find it cause there still on Oct 19th..

Not bad.. I do think that this shows the reboot was better received than the 2003 movie and that pleases me..

That is about what I expected.

But I have to say its first week sales is kinda more impressive than Iron Man. I don't know why but Iron man should have done around 200+ million by now in dvd but it is nowhere close to that.

TDk is unfortunately going to sell 10+ million copies first week and around 35-38 total in america.
