July 29th, 2013

There were a lot of new releases on the Blu-ray sales chart this week. This includes Oz the Great and Powerful, which led the way with 472,000 units / $13.21 million during its first week of release. Its opening week Blu-ray share was 46%, which is a good start for a visually impressive adventure film. Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters scored second place with 336,000 units / $7.83 million.

A Good Day Die Hard fell to third place with 139,000 units / $1.96 million for the week, giving it totals of 455,000 units / $7.82 million after two. This is merely mediocre, nothing more. Django Unchained roared back into the top five with 109,000 units / $1.46 million for the week, while after two months on the home market, it has sold 1.20 million units and generated $26.86 million in revenue.
