DVD Sales: Annie vs. Kings

April 7th, 2015

Just as it was on the Blu-ray Sales Chart, there was a tight race for top spot in the DVD sales chart, only the combatants weren't entirely the same. Exodus: Gods and Kings topped Annie in terms of units at 226,000 units to 202,000 units, but the pair finished in the opposite order in terms of revenue with $3.59 million to $3.38 million.

Penguins of Madagascar opened in third place with 192,000 units / $2.87 million. Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb landed in fourth place with 144,000 units / $2.15 million for the week for totals of 552,000 units / $8.27 million after two. Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1 rounded out the top five with 126,000 units / $1.74 million for the week and 1.32 million units / $18.02 million after three. The film is still profitable, but if the final installment in the franchise continues to slide instead of bouncing back, then any studio with a Young Adult adaptation in the works should begin to panic.

There were a trio of new releases to chart, starting with Halo: Nightfall, which earned seventh place with 71,000 units / $903,000. Top Five opened in ninth place with 34,000 units / $462,000. There is a canyon between this film's quality and financial numbers. The final new release to chart was Vice, which opened in eleventh place with 29,000 units / $400,000.
