Blu-ray Sales, July 29-August 4: G.I. Joe Assaults Home Media

Posted August 8, 2013 09:39 AM by Josh Katz

Blu-ray DiscFor the week that ended on August 4th, Paramount Pictures topped both the Blu-ray-only and overall home media sales charts with its release of G.I. Joe: Retaliation. The sequel to 2009's G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, this action blockbuster handily beat out all other package media options, thus continuing the success it had during its theatrical run last March, where it went on to gross over $371 million worldwide on top of its $130 million production budget. Regarding its Blu-ray totals, the film had a solid HD market share of 54%.

G.I. Joe: Retaliation dominated the media charts; nothing else came close in terms of sales figures. The week's second-place winner on the Blu-ray-only and overall home media sales rankings was Warner Home Entertainment's highly acclaimed DC Animated feature Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox, and it only managed to sell 15% as many Blu-rays as G.I. Joe: Retaliation and 13% as many total units. Still, The Flashpoint Paradox scored a win over Retaliation with a higher Blu-ray market share total - 60% of its sales came from the HD market - and the weeks to come will reveal if the animated adventure has the staying power, as The Dark Knight Returns: Part One and Part Two did, to rise in the home media charts.

Finally, Warner Bros' 42 closed out the third spot on the Blu-ray-only and overall home media lists. This was the third consecutive week that director Brian Helgeland's Jackie Robinson biopic performed strongly on small-screen package media, its sales adding to a theatrical gross of over $95 million domestically and a Metacritic ranking of 62%. On the the Blu-ray-only chart, the sports drama sold 6% as many copies as G.I. Joe: Retaliation (and had a Blu-ray market share of 25%), and on the overall package media list, it sold 13% as many total units as Retaliation.

I know that it will never be released on Criterion, but I thoroughly enjoyed BOTH G.I.Joe movies, they are good, loud and fun. Sometimes that's all you need in a movie.

I really enjoyed Flashpoint. Very interesting storyline. Still not as good as Batman but...

I picked up the Extended Action Edition of G.I. Joe and it really didn't add to much to the movie, but I really enjoyed Retaliation. I grew up playing with the A Real American Hero action figures. I collected the Marvel Comic of it and watched the cartoons and I think the movie captured the essence of it all, especially the comic book. I look forward to what John Chu comes up with next for it. More Commander hopefully.

For those who think BD has a real future for catalogue titles, have a look at the Top 10. Pure schlock.

@reidw

That is only because it is a slow month. This fall has some good titles coming. Usually when a major catalogue title is released, it makes it into the top ten.
