Blu-ray Sales, Dec. 23-29: Despicable Me 2 Stays at the Top of the Charts

Posted January 3, 2014 11:15 PM by Josh Katz

Blu-ray DiscFor the week that ended on December 29th, Universal Studios' Despicable Me 2 remained at number one on both the Blu-ray-only and overall package media charts. This animated comedy - the sequel to the 2010 surprise hit - netted Universal a healthy profit last summer; even after receiving average critical notices (its Metacritic rating stands at 62%), the film grossed over $918 million worldwide. Despicable Me 2 has dominated the home media platforms for three weeks now - currently, it had an HD market share of 42%.

Next up on the Blu-ray-only and overall package media sales rankings was another Universal title that has remained alongside Despicable Me 2 during the last three weeks: Fast & Furious 6. Even with the tragedy of star Paul Walker's death, this action blockbuster continued the success that the Fast and Furious franchise has enjoyed. Fast & Furious 6 grossed almost $789 million worldwide on top of its $160-million budget, far outpacing the unimpressive critical reception - a 61% Metacritic score - it received. On the Blu-ray-only list, Fast & Furious 6 sold 50% as many discs as Despicable Me 2 (it also had a 46% HD market share), and on the overall package media chart, Fast & Furious 6 sold 46% as many total units as the family-friendly favorite.

Finally, Warner's Man of Steel rounded out the top three spots on the Blu-ray-only and overall package media lists. This gritty retelling of the Superman story - the result of a partnership between 300 director Zach Snyder and The Dark Knight Trilogy architects David Goyer & Christopher Nolan - did solid business for the studio this past summer. Though its critical notices weren't great (its Metacritic score is 55%) and its $291-million domestic gross only just recouped its estimated production budget of $225 million, the film's additional foreign totals of over $371 million made for a decent-sized hit. Man of Steel sold 38% as many Blu-rays as Despicable Me 2 (its Blu-ray market share was 52%) and 30% as many total units as the Steve Carell-starring animated feature.

Would you guys please stop using Metacritic scores? They're full of shit. Only a complete masterpiece or absolute abomination would get a score outside of the 40-70 range. Rotten Tomatoes is far more representative of film quality and reaction.
