Blu-ray Sales, March 25-31: Lincoln Scores Number One Sales

Posted April 3, 2013 10:11 PM by Josh Katz

Blu-ray DiscFor the week that ended on March 31st, Disney and Touchstone Home Entertainment's Lincoln scored the top figures on both the overall package media and Blu-ray sales rankings. Director Steven Spielberg's historical drama drew rave reviews for its depiction of 16th U.S. President Abraham Lincoln - star Daniel Day-Lewis won a Best Actor Oscar for his performance as the title character - as well as a healthy box-office take; the $65 million feature grossed over $263 million worldwide. For its small-screen debut, the film garnered a 41% Blu-ray market share.

Holding onto the number two spot on the overall package media and Blu-ray-only rankings for a second week was Universal Studios Home Entertainment's release of the sweeping musical epic Les Misérables. Director Tom Hooper's Academy Award-winning follow-up to his The King's Speech grossed over $432 million top on of its estimated $61 million budget, and it only trailed behind Lincoln by a slight margin last week; the film sold 77% as many Blu-rays as Spielberg's biopic and 70% as many total units, and it had an HD market share of 45%.

Finally, Warner Bros. and New Line Home Entertainment's The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey fell to number three on the Blu-ray and overall package lists. Director Peter Jackson's first prequel to his Academy Award-winning Lord of the Rings Trilogy, which made more than $1 billion worldwide, debuted at number one on the home media market. The Hobbit sold 72% as many Blu-rays as Lincoln - and had a Blu-ray market share of 47% - and 64% as many total units.

Is this just for North American sales or is it worldwide? I can't imagine Lincoln doing that well elsewhere. It's an almost incomprehensible story for anyone not familiar with the American political system (e.g. Why didn't Lincoln go down to the Senate to make an impassioned plea to end slavery himself? Answer: He has no right to do that unlike in a Parliamentary democracy where the leader actually has a seat in the "house").

Also good to see Les Mis. doing well. It may shut up some of the noisy critics who are calling it a failure. Yes I was one of them but on third viewing I'm beginning to see it as different take rather a botched attempt. Music is good and sounds better at home than it did at my local garbage multiplex with its tinny speakers. That poor sound prejudiced my opinion.
