Percentage of revenue:

Top 10:

There were no big A-list new releases this week, but a big re-release (or is that re-re-re-release?) helped weekly Blu-ray market share to remain at least above 40% for the week.

The Lion King: Signature Collection was the re-release mentioned above, and it well enough to earn a second place finish on the Blu-ray sales chart, behind last week's mega hit 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2'.

Baywatch was the next best selling new release in 3rd place.

In fifth place was Batman and Harley Quinn and it was the last new release in the top 10.

Star Wars Rebels: Complete Season Three was in 11th.

This week's Ultra HD Blu-ray report: Disney being Disney, The Lion King re-release wasn't available on 4K (yet - we'll have to wait for the re-re-re-re-release). But both 'Baywatch' and 'Batman and Harley Quinn' had 4K editions. 8 out of the top 10 all had Ultra HD Blu-ray editions.

The complete top 10 chart is below (new releases in bold, Blu-ray exclusives are denoted by *, UHD releases denoted by +):
  1. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2+
  2. The Lion King: Signature Collection
  3. Baywatch+
  4. Alien: Covenant+
  5. Batman and Harley Quinn+
  6. The Boss Baby+
  7. The Fate of the Furious+
  8. King Arthur: Legend of the Sword+
  9. Beauty and the Beast
  10. Kong: Skull Island+

Blu-ray, Ultra HD 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, and Ultra HD editions). 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 Lion King: Signature Collection' did well on Blu-ray, with 74.99%. 'Baywatch' did well too with 59.28%.

'Batman and Harley Quinn' wasn't too far behind with 58.53%, and 'Star Wars Rebels: Complete Season Three' also managed to get above 50% with 55.68%.

For the UHD releases, 'Batman and Harley Quinn' had a UHD sales share of 4.17%, just ahead of 'Baywatch' with 4.03%.

Percentage of revenue:

Top 10:

'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2' topped the sales charts again this week, which means that we are once again having a week without a major new release.

The best selling new release was Megan Leavey in 4th place, selling way fewer copies than the three titles in front of it.

Rough Night in 6th place was the next best selling new release, and then it was all the way down to 10th for the next new release, All Eyez on Me.

Not that there were many new releases outside of the top 10 either, with First Kill in 12th being the only one.

The state of releases this week meant that Blu-ray revenue fell by quite a bit compared to the last week, and weekly Blu-ray market share dropped too.

This week's Ultra HD Blu-ray report: Of this week's new releases, only 'Rough Night' had a UHD edition. 7 out of the top 10 all had Ultra HD Blu-ray editions.

The complete top 10 chart is below (new releases in bold, Blu-ray exclusives are denoted by *, UHD releases denoted by +):
  1. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2+
  2. The Lion King: Signature Collection
  3. Baywatch+
  4. Megan Leavey
  5. Alien: Covenant+
  6. Rough Night+
  7. The Boss Baby+
  8. Kong: Skull Island+
  9. The Fate of the Furious+
  10. All Eyez on Me

Blu-ray, Ultra HD 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, and Ultra HD editions). 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 previously mentioned new releases managed to get a BD sales share of above 50%. The title that came closest was 'Megan Leavey' with 49.04%. 'Rough Night' was a little behind with 45.12%.

'First Kill' got 28% and 'All Eyez on Me' got 22%.

For the sole ranked UHD release this week, 'Rough Night' had a UHD sales share of 2.91%.

Top 10:

Blu-ray revenue and weekly market share remained pretty steady compared to the previous week, and we have a couple of notable new releases this week.

The most popular of which, and also this week's top seller, was the 2017 remake of The Mummy.

It easily outsold the number two title, which was also a new release, Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie.

The next new release came fifth, The Big Bang Theory: The Complete Tenth Season, while It Comes At Night came 9th.

Outside of the top 10, we have the re-release of E.T. - The Extra-Terrestrial, as a 35th Anniversary Edition, at 14th.

This week's Ultra HD Blu-ray report: Three of this week's 5 previously mentioned new releases all had UHD editions. Despite this, only 5 out of the top 10 had Ultra HD Blu-ray editions.

The complete top 10 chart is below (new releases in bold, Blu-ray exclusives are denoted by *, UHD releases denoted by +):
  1. The Mummy+
  2. Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie+
  3. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2+
  4. The Lion King: Signature Collection
  5. The Big Bang Theory: The Complete Tenth Season
  6. Baywatch+
  7. Alien: Covenant+
  8. Megan Leavey
  9. It Comes At Night
  10. Kingsman: The Secret Service

Blu-ray, Ultra HD 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, and Ultra HD editions). 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.

Being a re-release, 'E.T.' had the highest BD sales share for the week, with 64.01%. 'The Mummy' wasn't too far behind though, with 61.54%. 'Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie' capped off the good performances (on Blu-ray) with 55.75%.

'It Comes At Night' didn't do as well though, getting only 40.88%. 'The Big Bang Theory: The Complete Tenth Season' go 37%.

For the UHD releases (again, none were available on 3D), 'E.T. - The Extra-Terrestrial' did very well to get a UHD sales share of 51.05% (this means that the UHD edition was actually the most popular edition for this re-release). 'The Mummy' got 7.32% while 'Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie' got 1.88%.

This time last year, 'Captain America: Civil War' was released. There was no way any of this week's new releases could stand up to a mega release like that, and so we have an "all red week".

Blu-ray sales decreased by $19.77m (down 44.5%), while DVD sales decreased by $14.63m (down 25.9%) producing $34.4 million less in combined revenue.

Blu-ray's market share decreased from 44.02% to 37.07%.

Top 10:

A huge release this week in the form of Wonder Woman, which helped Blu-ray revenue reach a recent high and allowed weekly Blu-ray market share to also reach one of this year's highs (but just shy of crossing over the 50% mark).

Last week's top seller, 'The Mummy', was a distant second, selling some ten times less than 'Wonder Woman'.

Close Encounters of the Third Kind arrives on Blu-ray again and on 4K for the first time in this 40th anniversary edition (I guess we'll be having these every 5 years then).

That was it for new releases in the top 10 though, but The Big Sick.

Missing out on a top 20 finish on the Blu-ray charts, but within the combined Blu-ray and DVD charts, was The Hero in 12th and Starship Troopers: Traitor of Mars in 20th

So there were plenty of releases, but as usual, it's the top seller that usually makes the most difference.

This week's Ultra HD Blu-ray report: 'Wonder Woman', 'Close Encounters of the Third Kind' and 'Starship Troopers: Traitor of Mars in 20th' were all available on UHD, and all did quite well on the format (see below). 7 out of the top 10 had Ultra HD Blu-ray editions.

The complete top 10 chart is below (new releases in bold, Blu-ray exclusives are denoted by *, UHD releases denoted by +):
  1. Wonder Woman+
  2. The Mummy+
  3. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2+
  4. Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie+
  5. The Lion King: Signature Collection
  6. Kingsman: The Secret Service
  7. Hocus Pocus
  8. Close Encounters of the Third Kind - 40th Anniversary Edition*+
  9. Alien: Covenant+
  10. Baywatch+

Blu-ray, Ultra HD 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, and Ultra HD editions). 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.

'Wonder Woman' stormed the BD sales share charts with 72.62%. 'The Big Sick' got a very respectable 64.48%. 'Starship Troopers: Traitor of Mars' got 43%, and 'The Hero' only got 13%.

The 40th anniversary edition of 'Close Encounters of the Third Kind' was available on Blu-ray and 4K only, so technically it had a BD sales share of 100%.

For the UHD releases, 'Close Encounters of the Third Kind' managed a UHD sales share of 83.60%, while 'Starship Troopers: Traitor of Mars' got a respectable 16.77% as well. 'Wonder Woman' debuts on 4K Blu-ray at 9.65%. 'Wonder Woman' was also available on 3D, with a 3D sales share of 3.04%.

This time last year, there were also some big releases, including 'Beauty and the Beast: 25th Anniversary Signature Edition' and 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows', and so the profit jump from this year to the previous wasn't as big as expected.

Blu-ray sales increased by $6.04m (up 16.2%), while DVD sales decreased by $5.89m (down 11.5%) producing $0.15 million less in combined revenue.

Blu-ray's market share increased from 42.11% to 48.85%.

Top 10:

Blu-ray revenue fell compared to last week as this week's top selling new release, Transformers: The Last Knight, was no match for 'Wonder Woman'. But it did beat the superhero movie to the number one spot on the Blu-ray charts, although not by much. A five movie collection feature this latest Transformers movie and all of the previous ones also got into the top 10, at 10th.

Other than that, 47 Meters Down was the next best selling new release, in 6th place.

That was it for new releases in the Blu-ray top 20, although on the combined Blu-ray and DVD chart at 11th was Longmire: The Complete Fifth Season.

This week's Ultra HD Blu-ray report: 'Transformers: The Last Knight' was available on UHD. 7 out of the top 10 had Ultra HD Blu-ray editions.

The complete top 10 chart is below (new releases in bold, Blu-ray exclusives are denoted by *, UHD releases denoted by +):
  1. Transformers: The Last Knight+
  2. Wonder Woman+
  3. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2+
  4. The Mummy+
  5. Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie+
  6. 47 Meters Down
  7. The Lion King: Signature Collection
  8. Hocus Pocus
  9. Kingsman: The Secret Service
  10. Transformers: 5-Movie Collection*

Blu-ray, Ultra HD 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, and Ultra HD editions). 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.

'Transformers: The Last Knight' managed to get a BD sales share of 70.04%, which is fairly high. The other releases didn't do as well, with '47 Meters Down' managing 39.23% and 'Longmire: The Complete Fifth Season' getting only 2%.

The UHD sales share of 'Transformers: The Last Knight' was a fairly decent 7.83%, and as it was also available on 3D, the 3D sales share was 2.61%.

'Transformers' was up against 'Warcraft' from a year ago, and didn't really do as well.

Blu-ray sales decreased by $0.87m (up 2.7%), while DVD sales decreased by $7.83m (down 15.5%) producing $8.7 million less in combined revenue.

Top 10:

Blu-ray revenue and market share remained largely unchanged, as we have a new A-list-ish in the form of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. The previous 'Pirates of the Caribbean' films also made entries into the top 20, including 'On Stranger Tides' in 12th, 'At World's End' at 19th and 'Dead Man's Chest' at 20th.

'Dead Men Tell No Tales' easily outsold the only other new release in the top 10, Cult of Chucky, which finished in only 5th place.

Dragon Ball Super: Part Two finished in 16th and was the only other new release in the top 20.

So a pretty quiet week, but 'Dead Men Tell No Tales' did well enough to keep the Blu-ray stats steady.

This week's Ultra HD Blu-ray report: 'Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales' was available on UHD, only the second ever Disney release on the format (the other was 'Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol 2'). 6 out of the top 10 had Ultra HD Blu-ray editions.

The complete top 10 chart is below (new releases in bold, Blu-ray exclusives are denoted by *, UHD releases denoted by +):
  1. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales+
  2. Transformers: The Last Knight+
  3. Wonder Woman+
  4. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2+
  5. Cult of Chucky
  6. Hocus Pocus
  7. The Mummy+
  8. Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie+
  9. The Lion King: Signature Collection
  10. 47 Meters Down

Blu-ray, Ultra HD 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, and Ultra HD editions).

'Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales' got the best BD sales share with a very good 77.57%. 'Dragon Ball Super: Part Two' wasn't too far behind though, with 76.46%.

'Cult of Chucky' was further behind with 47.31%.

The latest 'Pirates' movie had a very respectable UHD sales share of 6.03%.

Another "all red" week (last year's 'X-Men: Apocalypse' versus this year's 'Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales') saved by rising weekly Blu-ray market share.

Blu-ray sales decreased by $1.22m (up 3.6%), while DVD sales decreased by $8.89m (down 16.7%) producing $10.11 million less in combined revenue.

Blu-ray's market share increased from 38.91% to 42.44%.
