Blu-ray Sales: March 10th, 2013: Wreck-Ralph Towers Above Competition

April 24th, 2013

Wreck-It Ralph led a group of five new releases earning first place on the March 10th, 2013 edition of the Blu-ray sales chart. The film sold 1.01 million units and generated $28.29 million in opening week sales, for an opening week Blu-ray share of 50%. This is is amazing for a kids film. Granted, it does have a high nerd nostalgia factor, which helped on Blu-ray, but this is still impressive. More...

DVD and Blu-ray Releases for March 5th, 2013

March 5th, 2013

It's a strange week for home market releases. On the one hand, there are some terrific films that should do really well.

The best film coming out this week is Schindler's List, which makes its Blu-ray debut this week. It is absolutely a must have; however, the Blu-ray is shovelware, which precludes it from being the Pick of the Week. The release that gets that honor is Wreck-It Ralph on either Blu-ray or 3D. It is worth paying the extra money for 3D, but not a lot of people have made the leap to 3D just yet. More...

This week it makes its Blu-ray debut. Does it still stand up 20 years later? And is the Blu-ray worthy of the film? More...
