It was neck and neck for the top-selling Blu-ray spot in the week ended January 2, but in the end Inception, now in its fourth week in stores, narrowly beat newcomer Resident Evil: Afterlife in the charts. Sony's horror/action/sci-fi movie got 44% of its total disc sales from the BD release, a record for a title not bundled with a DVD copy.
Wow! Just one Blu that came out last week made into the top 10 this week; still impressive showing for Resident Evil: Afterlife with 44% of sales from Blu. Good to see Inception continuing to do well! I have to say, it's a good list of top 10 movies! I own all of them!
Haven't watched Inception yet on Blu-Ray but still impressive it beat Resident Evil, even with some retailers breaking it out after Christmas day; Sunday. Next week hopefully Resident Evil will have steady sales, it's such an amazing film!!! I can't stop watching it!
I'll say it again, Inception was a damn good movie but it sure as sh!t wasn't great. That being said though I will say it was one of the top three movies I saw last year without a doubt. Granted, there wasn't much good coming out last year but still, a unique movie with an original story that was neither a reboot or a remake, give Nolan credit for that above all else. Good to see it doing well.
It isn't a big surprise to me that Inception is still number 1 it's such a great movie. I am glad to see that RE: Afterlife was able to get 44% penetration on Blu ray even though it didn't include DVD.
