DVD Sales: Left Behind Out in Front

January 24th, 2015

Left Behind led the new releases on the DVD chart, at least in terms of units sold, with 201,000. Its sales for the week were $2.05 million, giving it third place by that metric. This is not great for a first-run release, but not bad compared to the film's box office. It is also much better than its opening on Blu-ray. No Good Deed earned second place in both units and sales with 168,000 units and $2.82 million. The Equalizer was third in terms of units with 167,000 units, but first in terms of sales with $3.34 million. Get on Up was softer with an opening of 88,000 units / $1.50 million. Its box office numbers were not good, but I was still hoping for more than this. Guardians of the Galaxy rounded out the top five with 80,000 units / $1.19 million of the week for a total of 2.39 million units / $34.82 million after a month of release.

There were several other new releases to chart this week, including Horns, which managed ninth place with 52,000 units / $512,000. This is a good result, for a limited release. Likewise, Boyhood did well for a limited release with 34,000 units / $608,000. Archer: The Complete Fifth Season opened in 15th place with 31,000 units / $648,000. It's hard to complain about this result, as it is just a cable show. Finally, there's Atlas Shrugged: Who is John Galt?, which landed in 17th place with 30,000 units / $455,000.
