DVD Sales: Immortals and Throne Both Have Claim to Top Spot

March 21st, 2012

New releases dominated the DVD sales chart with two DVDs having a legitimate claim to the top spot. Immortals sold the most units 649,000 units, while its revenue was the second best for the week at $11.12 million. The second best selling release was Barbie in a Mermaid Tale 2 with 527,000 units / $6.32 million. Its revenue wouldn't be enough to reach the top five. Again, this franchise continues to rake in money on the home market. The other release that has a legitimate claim for top spot is Game of Thrones: Season One, which was third in terms of units with 518,000 units, but it was clearly number one in terms of revenue with $17.60 million. This is a fantastic start for a TV on DVD release. Footloose opened in fourth place with 461,000 units / $7.64 million, while Jack and Jill was right behind with 409,000 units / $7.77 million.

The only other new release to reach the top 30 was Tooth Fairy 2 with 128,000 units / $1.67 million, which was enough for 11th place.
