Blu-ray Sales, February 18-24: Skyfall and Argo Take Top Spots

Posted February 27, 2013 09:20 PM by Josh Katz

Blu-ray DiscFor the week that ended on February 24th, MGM and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment's release of Skyfall again topped the Blu-ray media rankings. The film, which grossed over $1.1 billion worldwide when it premiered theatrically last November, continued to succeed on the home media market, where it garnered a healthy HD market share of 53%.

Following Skyfall on the Blu-ray rankings was HBO Home Entertainment's Game of Thrones: The Complete Second Season box set. This critically and commercially successful fantasy drama begins its third season in just a few weeks and as such, fans eagerly picked up copies of its sophomore year. HBO's Game of Thrones package had a Blu-ray market share of 61% and almost overtook Skyfall; it sold 99% as many Blu-rays as the James Bond adventure. On the overall package media list, the series came in at third place and sold 71% as many copies as the top seller.

However, the third place rankings got a little convoluted. On the Blu-ray-only list, Argo rounded out the top three. The film, which just won three Academy Awards, including one for Best Picture, grossed over $207 million worldwide on top of its $44 million production budget, and its small-screen debut in the top three certainly bodes well for its future. It sold 97% as many Blu-rays as Skyfall and had a 43% HD market share. When taking into account all package media, though, Argo actually outpaced Skyfall, coming in at number one; there, Skyfall took the second place spot and sold 83% as many total units as Argo.

Only #3 for Argo? Odd, I figured a lot more people would be buying that due to the Best Picture win.

"For the week that ended on February 24th"

Argo won the Oscar on the night of the 24th. Expect to see the sales bump next week.
