DVD/Blu-Ray Sales: Getting All Caught Up

on Thursday, February 24, 2011  

Obviously, I've been gone for a few weeks. Sorry about that. I wasn't trying to neglect you all—I just got distracted with other stuff, namely my girlfriend, career plans (NYC here I come!), and a whole lot of Mumford and Sons. But now its time to get back on the blogging horse, and I thought I'd start by getting all caught up on the DVD/Blu-Ray sales charts. Actually, I'm skipping the DVD sales part. You can find those over on The-Numbers:
I will post the Blu-Ray sales charts I missed, though. No time for analysis right now, but suffice it to say that Red has been selling pretty darn well. Check out three weeks of Blu-Ray stats below:

I don't have all the numbers I need to make estimates yet. This chart should come soon!

Hey, would it be possible for you to make a separate list for the top selling Blu-Rays of all-time?

Like a link or something and basically the cumulative total you've calculated from being in the top 20.

@Jose I saw Red in a private pre-releases screening. It was tremendously awful. Maybe they recut it, but I have no desire to see it again. So, sorry, but yes.

@Anonymous That's a lot of work, and unfortunately, a lot of information that I do not have. Blu-Ray stats aren't released, and I do my best with the estimates, but I don't have nearly enough data.

From what I know, they didn't change it and you're in a minority, oh well.
