Posted January 6, 2011 02:10 AM by Juan Calonge

Blu-ray MoviesIt 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.

Top ten
  1. (1) Inception
  2. Resident Evil: Afterlife
  3. (9) The A-Team
  4. (4) The Town
  5. (14) The Expendables
  6. (2) Despicable Me
  7. (3) Salt
  8. (10) The Other Guys
  9. (7) Beauty and the Beast
  10. (5) Toy Story 3

Great news for Inception, and good news for Blu-ray that people didn't mind shelling out a few more bucks for a Blu-ray release not bundled with a DVD or Digital 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!

I think Nolan cheated, He used "Inception" on his audience, I'm sure of it

They should be paying a few bucks LESS to not get the DVD/Digital Copy.

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!

It would have sold even more if the 3d blu was available here in Canada , but I guess they just don't want to sell it here . Funny not even a release date here .

I saw RE:A in theaters and bought it on release day. I rented inception yesterday but had to turn it off half way through because it was much too boring.

I'll try to watch it again later.

The 3 recent new releases being sold currently for $12.99 everywhere (A-Team, Expendables and Other Guys) all saw huge jumps. Maybe studios should do that more often.

I feel odd that I have got Resident Evil After Life and The Red Shoes the same week. Yet didn't got my copy of Inception (Not even in the mood of watching it); I watched it theatrically though.

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.

Just curious how much Resident Evil afterlife sales were hurt by amazon not having it available last week. I know I ordered my copy and amazon had not received their copies to shipped.
