Blu-ray Sales: A Most Lonely Week

April 27th, 2015

There was only one new release to chart this week and it didn't reach the top five. It barely reached the top 20. This means the top of the Blu-ray sales chart is mostly the same as it was last week. Interstellar remained in first place with 120,000 units / $2.46 million for the week and 839,000 units / $16.68 million after two.

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies added 89,000 units / $2.50 million to its running tallies, which now sit at 1.11 million units / $31.01 million. Big Hero 6 was next with 37,000 units / $739,000 for the week and 2.45 million units / $46.64 million in total. Into the Woods returned to the top five with 35,000 units / $694,000 for the week, giving it 353,000 units / $7.07 million in total. Another returning entrant in the top five was Game of Thrones: Season One, which sold 32,000 units / $1.80 million for the week giving its totals of 726,000 units / $42.27 million after more than three years of release.

A Most Violent Year earned 16th place with 15,000 units / $257,000 giving it an opening week Blu-ray share of 40%. Both the raw numbers and the Blu-ray share are good for a limited release. However, the film cost $20 million to make, so I'm sure the studio was hoping for more than a limited release.
