Stats:

For the week ending 16th May 2015, here are the stats:

Percentage of revenue:
Blu-ray vs DVD: 30.40% vs 69.60%

Blu-ray sales total spending: $26.39 million
DVD sales total spending: $60.42 million

These stats available from here:

Home Media Magazine



Top 10:

Last week's rise in Blu-ray revenue and market share was short-lived unfortunately, as Blu-ray sales declined this week again. This was largely due to the lack of big new releases this week, with last week's number one, 'Fifty Shades of Grey', still number one this week (and by a large margin).

Of this week's new releases, the best selling title was Blackhat, but it only sold enough to be in third place.

A little bit behind in fourth place was Mortdecai, which was closely followed by The Cobbler in 5th place.

'Pitch Perfect' makes it back into the top 10 thanks to the release of the sequel in the cinemas.

There were still a few more new releases outside of the top 10. Still Alice was at 11th. In 19th place was Batman Unlimited: Animal Instincts.

Two more new titles were released this week, but both failed to even make the Blu-ray top 20. Tracers and Jurassic Park Collection were 14th and 18th on the combined Blu-ray and DVD charts.

Without a new release occupying the top spots on the sales charts, Blu-ray sales naturally fell back down compared to last week's high.

The complete top 10 chart is below (new releases in bold, and Blu-ray exclusives are denoted by *):
  1. Fifty Shades of Grey
  2. Paddington
  3. Blackhat
  4. Mortdecai
  5. The Cobbler
  6. Taken 3
  7. Selma
  8. Interstellar
  9. The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies
  10. Pitch Perfect

Blu-ray Sales Share:

BD sales share for a title is the percentage of disc packages sold for this movie that contained the Blu-ray edition of the film (including combos). So a BD sales share of 60% indicates that 60% of disc packages sold for this particular film contained the Blu-ray edition for this film, and so anything over 50% means that the Blu-ray version of the film was more popular than the DVD version.

Of the week's new releases, 'Blackhat' managed to have the best BD sales share, with 48.54%. 'Batman Unlimited: Animal Instincts' was next best, managing 39.89%.

Partially explaining this week's poorer Blu-ray results, none of the other new releases made the BD sales share top 20. 'The Cobbler' and 'Still Alice' both had BD sales shares of 29%, 'Mortdecai' had 27%, while 'Jurassic Park Collection' and 'Tracers' had 25% and 23%.

Another week with no new notable Blu-ray 3D releases.

Stats:

For the week ending 23rd May 2015, here are the stats:

Percentage of revenue:
Blu-ray vs DVD: 26.65% vs 73.35%

Blu-ray sales total spending: $20.06 million
DVD sales total spending: $55.22 million

These stats available from here:

Home Media Magazine



Top 10:

Blu-ray revenue dropped to the lowest level since July 2014, and within a whisker of being the worst weekly result since August 2012. With DVD revenue also dropping to almost the lowest level ever, Blu-ray market share was unavoidably low too, at the lowest level in 2015 so far.

Which is kind of strange, because we had a fairly good A-list release available this week in American Sniper, which did very well at the box office (nearly $350 million). It easily outsold last week's number one, 'Fifty Shades of Grey'.

There was room in the top 10 for another new release, Hot Tub Time Machine 2, which finished 4th on the Blu-ray sales charts.

And that was it in terms of new releases, not just in the top 10, but in the top 20. Perhaps this goes in someway to explain this week's lackluster results.

Outside of the top 20, we have Orange Is the New Black: Season Two as a new release - but it obviously didn't sell enough copies on Blu-ray to make it into the top 20. This perhaps best illustrates the problem with disc sales these days, as had this show not been a Netflix streaming exclusive, it probably will have sold a lot more on Blu-ray and DVD.

'Mad Max Collector's Edition' manages to fights its way into the top 10 for the week.

The complete top 10 chart is below (new releases in bold, and Blu-ray exclusives are denoted by *):
  1. American Sniper
  2. Fifty Shades of Grey
  3. Paddington
  4. Hot Tub Time Machine 2
  5. The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies
  6. Interstellar
  7. Taken 3
  8. Big Hero 6
  9. Pitch Perfect
  10. Mad Max: Collector's Edition

Blu-ray Sales Share:

BD sales share for a title is the percentage of disc packages sold for this movie that contained the Blu-ray edition of the film (including combos). So a BD sales share of 60% indicates that 60% of disc packages sold for this particular film contained the Blu-ray edition for this film, and so anything over 50% means that the Blu-ray version of the film was more popular than the DVD version.

'American Sniper' managed to get a BD sales share of 44.25%, which while respectable, is a bit lower than what you would expect from a title of this caliber. 'Hot Tub Time Machine 2' had 40.52%, which is also perhaps lower than expected.

'Orange Is the New Black: Season Two' managed only 19%.

Another week with no new notable Blu-ray 3D releases.

Another 'all red' week, but one that, to be honest, comes as a bit of a surprise to me. To the point where I think there might be something wrong with this week's data - I'll keep a close eye on it and see what's what.

Blu-ray sales decreased by $5.3m (down 20.9%), while DVD sales decreased by $8.69m (down 13.6%) producing $13.99 million less in combined revenue.

Blu-ray's market share decreased from 28.41% to 26.65%.

Top 10:

Blu-ray and DVD revenue both recovered a bit compared to last week's low, while 'American Sniper' held on to the top spot for the week.

In another very quiet week in terms of new releases, Seventh Son was the top selling new release.

The next best selling new release was The Loft in 9th.

Outside of the top 10, we have Sons of Liberty and Cut Bank, both of which managed to get into the combined Blu-ray and DVD top 20 (9th and 16th respectively), but did not sell enough on Blu-ray to get into the Blu-ray top 20.

So with a relatively quiet release slate, both Blu-ray revenue and market share remained relatively low.

The complete top 10 chart is below (new releases in bold, and Blu-ray exclusives are denoted by *):
  1. American Sniper
  2. Seventh Son
  3. Fifty Shades of Grey
  4. Paddington
  5. Jurassic Park
  6. The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies
  7. Interstellar

So a BD sales share of 60% indicates that 60% of disc packages sold for this particular film contained the Blu-ray edition for this film, and so anything over 50% means that the Blu-ray version of the film was more popular than the DVD version.

'Seventh Son' did quite well in terms of BD sales share, with 50.77% meaning that it sold more Blu-ray copies than DVD copies.

For the week's other notable new releases, 'The Loft' managed 40.34%, while 'Cut Bank' and 'Sons of Liberty' managed 20% and 10% respectively (thus explaining why they failed to get into the Blu-ray sales top 20).

We have yet another week with no new notable Blu-ray 3D releases.

Top 10:

A couple of better releases this week allowed Blu-ray weekly revenue and market share to rise compared to last week.

Leading the charts was The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water, an A-list release (of sorts) that helped Blu-ray revenue rise.

Not too far behind was the critically panned Jupiter Ascending.

Focus, in 4th place, was the next best selling new release, ahead of McFarland USA in 6th.

And finally in 10th place was Justified: The Final Season.

Outside of the top 20, we have Falling Skies: The Complete Fourth Season, which finished 16th on the combined Blu-ray and DVD chart.

So a selection of better releases this week, and Blu-ray revenue rose to its highest point in over a month.

The complete top 10 chart is below (new releases in bold, and Blu-ray exclusives are denoted by *):
  1. The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water
  2. Jupiter Ascending
  3. American Sniper
  4. Focus
  5. Fifty Shades of Grey
  6. McFarland USA
  7. Seventh Son
  8. Jurassic Park
  9. Interstellar
  10. Justified: The Final Season

Blu-ray Sales Share:

BD sales share for a title is the percentage of disc packages sold for this movie that contained the Blu-ray edition of the film (including combos). So a BD sales share of 60% indicates that 60% of disc packages sold for this particular film contained the Blu-ray edition for this film, and so anything over 50% means that the Blu-ray version of the film was more popular than the DVD version.

None of this week's new releases broke through the 50% barrier. The title that came closest was 'Jupiter Ascending at 48.85%. 'The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water' managed 44.16%

'Focus' managed to have a 38.75% BD sales share.

For the rest, 'Falling Skies: The Complete Fourth Season' managed 27%, 'McFarland USA' got 25% and 'Justified: The Final Season' managed 24%.

We do have some notable 3D releases this week, with 'Jupiter Ascending' having a Blu-ray 3D sales share of 11.23%, while 'The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water' managed 3.18%.

Another 'all red' week, but just barely. It's understandable though, given that this time last year, we had a release slate that included 'Lone Survivor'.

Blu-ray sales decreased by $4.68m (down 12.6%), while DVD sales decreased by $8.64m (down 11.7%) producing $13.32 million less in combined revenue.

Blu-ray's market share decreased from 33.47% to 33.25%.

DVD sales total spending: $61.54 million

These stats available from here:

Top 10:

Both Blu-ray and DVD revenue, as well as weekly Blu-ray market share fell again compared to last week's temporary high, as the quantity and quality of new releases failed to match that of last week.

The best selling title of the week, which was also a new release, was Kingsman: The Secret Service.

It's all the way down to 7th for the next new release, which was The Duff. It was closely followed by another new release, Project Almanac, in 8th place.

Outside of the top 10, we have Serena in 19th as this week's last notable new release.

The box office success of Jurassic World ensured that all three previous movies, plus the collector's edition box set, were all in the top 20.

So hardly a great selection of new titles, ensuring Blu-ray revenue fell back below $30 million for the week again.

The complete top 10 chart is below (new releases in bold, and Blu-ray exclusives are denoted by *):
  1. Kingsman: The Secret Service
  2. American Sniper
  3. The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water
  4. Jupiter Ascending
  5. Jurassic Park
  6. The Duff
  7. Project Almanac
  8. The Lost World: Jurassic Park
  9. Fifty Shades of Grey
  10. The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

BD sales share for a title is the percentage of disc packages sold for this movie that contained the Blu-ray edition of the film (including combos). So a BD sales share of 60% indicates that 60% of disc packages sold for this particular film contained the Blu-ray edition for this film, and so anything over 50% means that the Blu-ray version of the film was more popular than the DVD version.

'Kingsman: The Secret Service' did quite well on Blu-ray, selling more on the HD format than on DVD with a BD sales share of 51.01%.

'Project Almanac' managed 47.12%, while 'The Duff' and 'Serena' managed 25% and 24% respectively.

No notable 3D releases this week.

Another 'all red' week unfortunately, and it wasn't as if this time last year was a huge week in terms of new releases ('Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit' and 'Non-Stop' were the notable new releases back then).

Blu-ray sales decreased by $10m (down 26%), while DVD sales decreased by $15.19m (down 19.8%) producing $25.19 million less in combined revenue.

Top 10:

Despite none of these week's new releases doing any better than 3rd place (with 'American Sniper' and 'Kingsman: The Secret Service' still occupying the first and second spots), Blu-ray revenue and market share both went up (and even DVD revenue went up too).

Chappie was this week's best selling new release, but as mentioned previously, it only managed to sell enough copies to get third place.

In 5th place was another new release, Run All Night, but that was it for new releases in the top 10.

Outside the top 10, Spirited Away debuts in 12th, with The Lazarus Effect in 14th and Unfinished Business in 16th.

The complete top 10 chart is below (new releases in bold, and Blu-ray exclusives are denoted by *):

This week's third placed 'Chappie' is up against this time last year's 'The Lego Movie', so it was no competition really, and we have another 'all red' week as a result.

Blu-ray sales decreased by $10.28m (down 24.5%), while DVD sales decreased by $12.16m (down 15.8%) producing $22.44 million less in combined revenue.

Top 10:

Another poor week for both Blu-ray and DVD revenue, with Blu-ray revenue falling to the worst result in 2015, and DVD revenue close to the lowest ever recorded.

The reason for the poor results has to with the poor release slate for the week, with only 3 new releases in the top 20, and none failing to even make it into the top 5.

Survivor was the week's best selling new release, but it only managed to get as high as 6th on the Blu-ray chart (5th on the combined Blu-ray and DVD chart).

The next most popular new release didn't even make the top 10 - at 11th was The Forger.

An American Girl: Grace Stirs Up Success was the only other new release in the top 20, at 14th.

As you can see, none of this week's releases were what you would exactly call A-list (or even B-list). The big problem in 2015 for Blu-ray and DVD was the relatively poor release slate of movies at the cinema in 2014. 2015 is already looking like a fantastic year for movies, with Jurassic World and Avengers: Age of Ultron combining to earn almost a billion at the box office in the US alone, that's more than the top 3 movies in 2014 (American Sniper, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 and Guardians of the Galaxy) combined - and we still have the rest of the summer releases, and Star Wars (!) coming. All of these will combine to make the end of 2015 and 2016 a big year for Blu-ray and DVD (or at least, bigger than 2014/2015).

The complete top 10 chart is below (new releases in bold, and Blu-ray exclusives are denoted by *):
  1. Kingsman: The Secret Service
  2. American Sniper
  3. Chappie
  4. Jurassic Park
  5. The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water
  6. Survivor
  7. Run All Night
  8. Jupiter Ascending
  9. Fifty Shades of Grey
  10. Interstellar

Blu-ray Sales Share:

BD sales share for a title is the percentage of disc packages sold for this movie that contained the Blu-ray edition of the film (including combos). So a BD sales share of 60% indicates that 60% of disc packages sold for this particular film contained the Blu-ray edition for this film, and so anything over 50% means that the Blu-ray version of the film was more popular than the DVD version.

Not only did this week's new releases sell poorly, they also sold poorly on Blu-ray compared to the average for new releases. 'Survivor', the best of this week's titles in terms of BD sales share, only managed 32.20% (18th on the BD sales share chart).

'The Forger' only got 27% and 'An American Girl: Grace Stirs Up Success' managed 23%.

There were no new notable 3D releases this week.

6th placed 'Survivor' from this week takes on this time last year's number one '300: Rise of an Empire' - no contest, really.

Stats:

For the week ending 4th July 2015, here are the stats:

Percentage of revenue:
Blu-ray vs DVD: 25.05% vs 74.95%

Blu-ray sales total spending: $20.05 million
DVD sales total spending: $59.99 million

These stats available from here:

Home Media Magazine



Top 10:

Blu-ray revenue stayed at last week's lows, although DVD revenue did improve slightly for the 4th of July sales week (with the holiday, another one that's not particularly busy). The slight improvement in total revenue can be contributed to the fact that, yes, we actually have some more notable releases this week, starting with this week's best selling new release and overall number one seller Get Hard. It easily outsold last week's number one, 'Kingsman: The Secret Service'.

It's 4th place for the next new release, Last Knights.

The next, and the last new release in the top 20, was The Gunman in 6th place.

So some pretty average new releases, and only three of them to boot, means Blu-ray revenue stays close to record lows for the year (only $10,000 better).

The complete top 10 chart is below (new releases in bold, and Blu-ray exclusives are denoted by *):
  1. Get Hard
  2. Kingsman: The Secret Service
  3. Chappie
  4. Last Knights
  5. American Sniper
  6. The Gunman
  7. The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water
  8. Interstellar
  9. Despicable Me 2
  10. Despicable Me

Blu-ray Sales Share:

BD sales share for a title is the percentage of disc packages sold for this movie that contained the Blu-ray edition of the film (including combos). So a BD sales share of 60% indicates that 60% of disc packages sold for this particular film contained the Blu-ray edition for this film, and so anything over 50% means that the Blu-ray version of the film was more popular than the DVD version.

The worst selling of this week's three notable new releases actually had the best BD sales share - 'The Gunman' managed 44.55%.

Both of the other new releases, 'Get Hard' and 'Last Knights' got 31% - fairly average for new releases.

Again, there were no new notable 3D releases this week.

There were barely any new releases this time last year, but both DVD and Blu-ray sales were still better (largely off the success of The Lego Movie), which makes this week's "all red" just that slightly more disconcerting.

Blu-ray sales decreased by $2.63m (down 11.6%), while DVD sales decreased by $6.37m (down 9.6%) producing $9 million less in combined revenue.

Blu-ray's market share decreased from 25.47% to 25.05%.

Stats:

For the week ending 11th July 2015, here are the stats:

Percentage of revenue:
Blu-ray vs DVD: 23.04% vs 76.96%

Blu-ray sales total spending: $17.36 million
DVD sales total spending: $58.00 million

These stats available from here:

Home Media Magazine



Top 10:

The week ending the 11th of July had the unfortunate distinction of having the lowest weekly Blu-ray revenue figures since September 2010. Weekly Blu-ray market share was also at a low, the lowest since August 2013. As you might guess from the poor set of results has largely to do with the poor release slate for the week.

The best selling new release of the week was Maggie, which only managed to get as high as second place on the Blu-ray top 10 ('Get Hard' retained the number one spot).

The next new release, Woman in Gold, was in 6th.

Then it's out of the top 10 for the next set of new releases. House of Cards: The Complete Third Season was in 17th, while Monster High: Scaris, City of Frights was in 19th.

As you can see, hardly a stellar line-up of new releases, although you would still expect Blu-ray revenue and market to be higher now than in 2010 and 2013.

The complete top 10 chart is below (new releases in bold, and Blu-ray exclusives are denoted by *):
  1. Get Hard
  2. Maggie
  3. Kingsman: The Secret Service
  4. American Sniper
  5. Despicable Me
  6. Woman in Gold
  7. Despicable Me 2
  8. Last Knights
  9. Chappie
  10. Big Hero 6

Blu-ray Sales Share:

BD sales share for a title is the percentage of disc packages sold for this movie that contained the Blu-ray edition of the film (including combos). So a BD sales share of 60% indicates that 60% of disc packages sold for this particular film contained the Blu-ray edition for this film, and so anything over 50% means that the Blu-ray version of the film was more popular than the DVD version.

'Maggie' had the best BD sales share for the week, with 35.32%. 'House of Cards: The Complete Third Season' managed 23%, with 'Woman in Gold' managing 21%.

'Monster High: Scaris, City of Frights' was further behind with only 13%.

Again, there were no new notable 3D releases this week.

This time last year, it was also a record low (the lowest Blu-ray revenue since August 2012), but this year was even worse - the available releases at the time have a lot to do with it (and the record low comes around the July 4th holiday, which always have an effect on sales), but you would still expect Blu-ray revenue to be a bit higher than in 2010!

Blu-ray sales decreased by $1.86m (down 9.7%), while DVD sales decreased by $2.86m (down 4.7%) producing $4.72 million less in combined revenue.

Blu-ray's market share decreased from 24.00% to 23.04%.

Stats:

For the week ending 18th July 2015, here are the stats:

Percentage of revenue:
Blu-ray vs DVD: 30.57% vs 69.43%

Blu-ray sales total spending: $27.93 million
DVD sales total spending: $63.42 million

These stats available from here:

Top 10:

Blu-ray and DVD revenue, along with Blu-ray market share, all recovered this week as a half a dozen new releases were made available for the week ending 18th July 2015.

The Longest Ride was the week's best selling new release, and the overall best selling title for the week. The 'Rogue' cut of X-Men: Days of Future Past (which features more than 10 minutes of new footage featuring Anna Paquin's Rogue) was also available, and it did well enough on Blu-ray to take second place. This re-release was, as expected, hugely popular on Blu-ray, helping Blu-ray market share to rise to above 30% again this week.

This week's new releases also includes Ex Machina in 3rd place; Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 in 4th and It Follows in 5th.

The only other new release in the top 20 was The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, in 14th place.

These new releases, along with the week not having a major holiday, helped Blu-ray revenue and market share rise.

The complete top 10 chart is below (new releases in bold, and Blu-ray exclusives are denoted by *):
  1. The Longest Ride
  2. X-Men: Days of Future Past
  3. Ex Machina
  4. Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2
  5. It Follows
  6. The Lord of the Rings Trilogy
  7. Despicable Me 2
  8. Get Hard
  9. Kingsman: The Secret Service
  10. Despicable Me

Blu-ray Sales Share:

BD sales share for a title is the percentage of disc packages sold for this movie that contained the Blu-ray edition of the film (including combos). So a BD sales share of 60% indicates that 60% of disc packages sold for this particular film contained the Blu-ray edition for this film, and so anything over 50% means that the Blu-ray version of the film was more popular than the DVD version.

Of this week's new releases, the new edition of 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' helped it to earn a BD sales share of 75.08%. 'Ex Machina' also did well, with 56.75%, and 'It Follows' also managed to get above 50% with 50.18%.

The other new releases were still more popular on DVD than on Blu-ray. 'Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2' managed 34.76%. The week's top seller 'The Longest Ride' only managed a BD sales share of 24%. 'The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel' managed 17%.

Finally an end to the streak of 'all red' weeks, with rising Blu-ray revenue this week finally stopping the worrying trend.

Blu-ray sales increased by $0.97m (up 3.6%), while DVD sales decreased by $6.27m (down 9%) producing $5.3 million less in combined revenue.

Blu-ray's market share increased from 27.89% to 30.57%.

"Blu-ray's market share increased from 27.89% to 30.57%."

I think, "increased" used to be green

Top 10:

Weekly Blu-ray revenue fell again, as weekly market share retreated back to below 30%. The reason for this was simple: there were no new releases in the Blu-ray top 10!

The best selling new release was Wild Horses in 11th place, with Kung Fu Killer the next best in 13th place.

A 17th placed finish for Scooby-Doo! and KISS: Rock and Roll Mystery is the only other new release in the top 20.

So a very quiet week in terms of new releases, and Blu-ray revenue dropped back down to lower levels again as expected.

The complete top 10 chart is below (new releases in bold, and Blu-ray exclusives are denoted by *):
  1. The Longest Ride
  2. Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2
  3. X-Men: Days of Future Past
  4. Ex Machina
  5. Get Hard
  6. It Follows
  7. American Sniper
  8. Interstellar

  10. Jupiter Ascending

A nearly "all red" week, with this week's zero new releases in the top 10 up against this time last year's 'Heaven Is for Real', 'Transcendence', 'Sabotage' and 'The Single Moms Club', but this week's higher Blu-ray market share saves the day.

Blu-ray sales decreased by $5.39m (down 20.7%), while DVD sales decreased by $18.2m (down 24.6%) producing $23.59 million less in combined revenue.

Blu-ray's market share increased from 26.04% to 27.03%.

Top 10:

Blu-ray revenue bounced back thanks to the release of animated hit Home.

In a very distant second place was Justice League: Gods and Monsters, which incidentally was also the only other new release in the Blu-ray top 10.

The Water Diviner was in 11th place, and was the only other new release in the top 20.

So not exactly a week full of new releases, but only one really mattered and it helped Blu-ray market share rise above 30% again.

The complete top 10 chart is below (new releases in bold, and Blu-ray exclusives are denoted by *):
  1. Home
  2. Justice League: Gods and Monsters
  3. X-Men: Days of Future Past
  4. The Longest Ride
  5. Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2
  6. Ex Machina
  7. Get Hard
  8. American Sniper
  9. Big Hero 6
  10. Mission: Impossible Collection

Blu-ray Sales Share:

BD sales share for a title is the percentage of disc packages sold for this movie that contained the Blu-ray edition of the film (including combos). So a BD sales share of 60% indicates that 60% of disc packages sold for this particular film contained the Blu-ray edition for this film, and so anything over 50% means that the Blu-ray version of the film was more popular than the DVD version.

Out of the three new releases in this week's top 20, 'Justice League: Gods and Monsters' had the best BD sales share with 63.65%.

'Home' managed a respectable, although slightly lower than expected 43.03%, while 'The Water Diviner' managed only 22%.

And we finally have another notable Blu-ray 3D release, but the 3D edition of 'Home' only managed a sales share of 1.63%.

Even an A-list release like 'Home' could not prevent this week's stats mostly being down compared to the same week last year, which was the week 'Noah' was released.

Blu-ray sales decreased by $1.07m (down 3.9%), while DVD sales decreased by $13.04m (down 17.8%) producing $14.11 million less in combined revenue.

Top 10:

Insurgent, the second movie in the Divergent Trilogy, was the headlining new release for this week and also the week's clear top selling title. It easily outsold last week's number one, 'Home', by a considerable margin.

The release of 'Insurgent', which took more than $130 million at the US box office, helped Blu-ray revenue to rise slightly, and helped Blu-ray market share remain relatively steady compared to last week.

'The Divergent Series Double Feature' pack also managed to sell well, despite being a Walmart exclusive - it got as high as 3rd place on the Blu-ray sales charts.

In 4th place was another new release, Do You Believe?.

Unfortunately, that was it for new releases in the top 20, in what is another very quiet week.

The complete top 10 chart is below (new releases in bold, and Blu-ray exclusives are denoted by *):
  1. Insurgent
  2. Home
  3. The Divergent Series Double Feature
  4. Do You Believe?
  5. Divergent
  6. X-Men: Days of Future Past
  7. Justice League: Gods and Monsters
  8. The Longest Ride
  9. Ex Machina
  10. Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2

'Insurgent' did quite well on Blu-ray, with a BD sales share of 53.36%. The 'Divergent Series Double Feature' also did quite well, with 47.08%.

'Do You Believe?' managed 30.61%.

As for Blu-ray 3D, 'Insurgent' did come with a 3D edition, and it actually did very well sales with. 18.21% of all 'Insurgent' disc packages came with the 3D edition of the film.

A higher weekly Blu-ray market share helped prevent this week from being another 'all red' week, as the sequel 'Insurgent' failed to beat the original 'Divergent', which was released the same week last year (the same trend was repeated at the box office too for both movies).

Blu-ray sales decreased by $5.26m (down 15.9%), while DVD sales decreased by $14.57m (down 18.5%) producing $19.83 million less in combined revenue.

Blu-ray's market share increased from 29.58% to 30.24%.
