DVD Sales: February 17th, 2013: Bond Blows Away the Competition

April 10th, 2013

Skyfall led a set of four new releases that earned spots in the top 30 on the February 17th edition of the DVD sales chart. It easily took top spot with 1.09 million units / $18.54 million, which is already enough for fourth place for the year. Hotel Transylvania rose a spot to second with 403,000 units / $6.91 million for the week, giving it totals of 1.99 million units / $36.45 million after three. This is very close to the number one spot for the year. The Perks of Being a Wallflower debuted in third place with 243,000 units / $3.23 million. It is very rare for a limited release to open in the top ten. Granted, it is also rare for a limited release to earn more than $15 million, which is something else this film managed to do. Pitch Perfect rose to fourth place for the week with 193,000 units and $2.61 million. Meanwhile, it rose to third place for the year with 2.56 million units / $46.19 million after two months of release. Films very rarely have legs on the home market, so this is an unbelievable run. Tyler Perry's Madea Gets a Job: The Play fell from second to fifth with 186,000 units / $2.33 million for the week giving it totals of 761,000 units / $9.50 million after two.

The Man with the Iron Fists only managed seventh place with 145,000 units / $2.46 million. Then again, it bombed at the box office, so this isn't a surprise. Silent Hill: Revelation was even weaker earning 14th place with 87,000 units / $1.49 million. The less said about that the better.
