Home Market Numbers: Interstellar Helps Home Market Reach for the Stars

April 20th, 2015

The home market was good, for the most part, thanks in large part to Interstellar. The Blu-ray sales chart was mixed when compared to last week up 13% in terms of units, but down 9.7% in terms of revenue. It was much stronger when compared to last year with 21% more units sold and 16% higher revenue. DVDs were even stronger, on the other hand, so the overall Blu-ray share slipped to 42%.

DVD sales were up across the board, including selling 21% more units and generating 7.6% more revenue when compared to last week. When compared to last year, there were 34% more units sold and 7.1% higher revenue. The discrepancy between the growth in units and revenue is due to the misalignment of Easter.

Next week's new releases are terrible, there's no polite way to put it. A Most Violent Year might be the only new release to chart. By comparison, the same week last year, the new releases were led by The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, which topped both the Blu-ray sales chart and the DVD sales chart.
