Blu-ray Sales, November 5-11: Spider-Man Swings to Number One

Posted November 14, 2012 08:02 PM by Josh Katz

Blu-ray DiscFor the week ending on November 11th, Sony Pictures' The Amazing Spider-Man topped the Blu-ray-only and overall package media charts. Director Marc Webb's reboot of the blockbuster Spider-Man franchise made a huge sales impression in just a few days; it streeted on Friday, November 9th as opposed to Tuesday the 6th, and still it managed to top all home media charts, including 3D Blu-rays (in fact, 17% of its total numbers came from 3D). These totals bode well for The Amazing Spider-Man's small-screen future, as does its impressive HD market share of 72%.

Second place on the overall and Blu-ray-only media rankings went to another Sony new release, albeit a more family-friendly one: Arthur Christmas. This holiday-themed CGI comedy had a somewhat disappointing theatrical run following its debut last year - it grossed only $46 million domestically, though its international performance of $100 million was much stronger. The amount of Arthur Christmas copies certainly reflects some of the viewer disinterest; while it came in second, it sold only 15% as many Blu-rays as The Amazing Spider-Man and 26% as many overall media units, and it had an HD market share of 42%.

Finally, sales titan The Avengers occupied the number three position on the Blu-ray-only chart. After seven weeks on home media, the superhero adventure showed no signs of disappearing - even on the overall media list, where Secret of the Wings came in third, The Avengers mustered a respectable sixth-place showing. The film moved 9% as many Blu-rays as The Amazing Spider-Man and had a 32% HD market share, while its total package media scores saw it selling 14% as many total units as that other Marvel actioner.

No real surprises here. Except Firefly at #10. Was there a big sale somewhere?

(Betcha Fox is kicking themselves for canceling that one after only a few eps, eh?)

Arthur Christmas released on Blu almost a year since its theatrical release. That's rare for new releases these days. It wasn't missed though. Rented it and it was manic and all over the place. Not destined to be a Christmas classic.

The theatrical-to-home-video window is always much longer for Christmas movies (except for Surviving Christmas, lol). They want both releases to coincide with the holiday season.

I doubt TDKR will. After all, it disappointed a lot of hardcore Nolan Batman fans.

The Amazing Spiderman disappointed a lot of Spiderman fans but it still did really well.

Beast, forget about your prejudices . TDKR and Finding Nemo will result in a new weekly revenue share vs DVD record. TDKR will achive more than 72% (The Avengers and The Amazing Spiderman both reached 72% of its units sales for Blu-ray) and has a chance to break the current record of 76% (Prometheus). Count on it .

@LordRaymond:

Comic Fans are impossible to please. It still was better than the Raimi films.

@Blu Titan:

No prejudice. Just reality. TDKR was a huge thud, even for people who liked the first two.
It won't do better than 72%. It mighht get close. But it's not going to be that high.

@ Beast, while TDKR rises wasn't as good as TDK IMO, it was still pretty solid and I know a lot of causal movie goers who loved it. It's going to move a lot of Blu-rays when it releases

72% is fantastic for a new release. It really is beginning of the end for DVD in new releases for big blockbuster movies

TDKR didn't really disappoint me that much, and I'm a Nolan Batman fan. Yeah, it was no Dark Knight, but really how could Nolan have topped that one?! I'm gonna buy it day one and even splurge on the ultimate collector's edition set that will be coming next year!

Dreadul movie. Hated it when I saw it at the cinema. Absolutely unnecessary reboot of a really good series.
Even by comic book standards Amazing Spiderman is way too silly and clichéd, acting and fx are crap, characterisation non-existent. Rated SMC - for seriously mentally challenged only.
