Blu-ray Sales, March 4-10: Ralph Breaks the Dawn for Number One

Posted March 13, 2013 09:44 PM by Josh Katz

Blu-ray DiscFor the week that ended on March 10th, Walt Disney Home Entertainment's Wreck-It Ralph scored the top position on the Blu-ray and overall package media lists. This CGI-animated comedy was a critical favorite last November - its current Metacritic standing is at a 72% favorability rating - despite a slightly underwhelming domestic gross of $187 million (on top of its $165 million budget). Nevertheless, it debuted at number one on the home media market, where it had a Blu-ray market share of 51%

At the number two spot on the overall package media and Blu-ray-only rankings was Summit and Lionsgate Home Entertainment's release of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2. Last November, the film had an impressive theatrical gross of over $829 million worldwide (on top of its estimated budget of $120 million); so far, its home media success has made for lucrative small-screen fortunes. On the Blu-ray chart, Breaking Dawn: Part 2 sold 45% as many discs as Wreck-It Ralph and garnered an HD market share of 25%. It performed even better when taking into consideration the overall home media chart - there, Breaking Dawn: Part 2 sold 91% as many total units as the Disney adventure.

Finally, MGM and Fox Home Entertainment's Red Dawn took the third place rankings on both the Blu-ray-only and total package media lists. After years of distribution and exhibition delays, this remake of director John Milius' 1984 cult classic managed a disappointing theatrical gross of $44 million on top of its $65 million budget. Still, it rounding out the top three was a solid small-screen start; Red Dawn sold 22% as many Blu-rays as Wreck-It Ralph and 25% as many total units. It also had a 44% HD market share.

So glad Ralph is number 1 instead of that piece of trash that is Twilight. Ralph is a fantastic film!

Really happy to see Ralph on top. Love this film. Would love to see Who Framed Roger Rabbit on top next week...but it seems it's pretty hard to find a copy.

I've taken a new policy: modernized 'teal'ing of catalog titles are automatic 'Pass!'.

So disappointed about Westworld. (See the gun barrel in this close-up. Ridiculous.)

Mostly movies aimed at children and teens. It's interesting to see Schindler's List on the...uh, list.

Man, I haven't tracked these market share and sales news bits in a couple years. Is it pretty common now to see new releases getting around 50% of their sales from Blu-ray as opposed to the majority from DVD? If so, it's about time.

We've had record market shares with some releases this year. I believe the Avengers, The Dark Knight Rises, and Prometheus were in the 80%s.

@dmarvin: A higher BDs share can mean either more people are buying BDs or fewer people are buying DVDs. It's hard to tell without absolute sales numbers.
