Default Correction on data set

The NPD numbers reported by Media Play News are in unit sales, not revenue.

Thanks for the clarification. Can you point me to the source for this? MPN's own unit sales figures put DVD unit sale market share at 62.89% for the week ending March 31, which seems about right when compared to the revenue share due to the lower average pricing of DVDs. If NPD puts DVD unit sale at only 37.7% (compared to MPN's 62.89%), then that seems a bit low to be honest, and would only translate to a revenue share of mid 20s for DVD (the average BD cost according to MPN is $20.65 compared to only $10.27 for DVDs). If such a discrepancy exists, then I'm inclined not to include the NPD graphs in the future (which I've only done so starting recently because it has separate UHD numbers).

Stats:

For the week ending April 7, 2018, here are the stats:

Percentage of revenue (MPN):
Blu-ray vs DVD: 42.50% vs 57.50%

Blu-ray sales total spending: $30.73 million
DVD sales total spending: $41.57 million

These stats available from here:

Media Play News



Top 10:

The huge week for Blu-ray last week made way for the Easter sales lull this week, as Blu-ray and DVD revenue both fell back.

As is the case with other Easter lulls, this ones was also light on new releases, with Insidious: The Last Key in 6th and Father Figures in 9th being the only new releases in the top 10. The top selling title was still Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi.

Looking Glass was the only other new release in the top 20, at 17th.

This week's Ultra HD Blu-ray report: None of this week's new releases (in the top 20) were available on UHD. So out of the top 10, eight titles had UHD editions (all but the two new releases).

The complete top 10 chart is below (new releases in bold, Blu-ray exclusives are denoted by *, UHD releases denoted by +):
  1. Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi+
  2. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle+
  3. Thor: Ragnarok+
  4. Justice League+
  5. Coco+
  6. Insidious: The Last Key
  7. Ferdinand+
  8. Pitch Perfect 3+
  9. Father Figures
  10. The Shape of Water+

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.

'Insidious: The Last Key' was the only previously mentioned new release that got over the 50% mark, with 50.79%. 'Father Figures' managed 39% while 'Looking Glass' got 31%.

Again not the fairest comparison between two weeks, since we're comparing the Easter lull, one of the quietest weeks of the year, to last year's 'Rogue One'. An "all red" week was all but guaranteed.

Blu-ray sales decreased by $36.96m (down 54.6%), with unit sales down 53.3%.

DVD sales decreased by $18.16m (down 30.4%), with unit sales down 25.5%.

This meant $55.12 million less in combined revenue for the week.

Top 10:

Blu-ray revenue recovered slightly from the lows of last week (due to the post-Easter lull), and the release of a A-list-ish release in the form of The Greatest Showman helped in the recovery too.

It was actually a week full of new releases in the top 20, with no less than 7 other new releases. Apart from 'The Greatest Showman', the best selling of these was Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay in 4th place.

In 6th place was Outlander: Season Three, and in 10th was Proud Mary.

Outside of the top 10, we have Molly’s Game in 11th, Phantom Thread in 13th, All the Money in the World in 15th and Braven in 16th.

This week's Ultra HD Blu-ray report: Two of this week's new releases (in the top 20) were available on UHD, including top seller 'The Greatest Showman'. The other title was 'Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay', although 'Phantom Thread' has since been released on UHD. So out of the top 10, eight titles had UHD editions.

The complete top 10 chart is below (new releases in bold, Blu-ray exclusives are denoted by *, UHD releases denoted by +):
  1. The Greatest Showman+
  2. Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi+
  3. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle+
  4. Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay+
  5. Thor: Ragnarok+
  6. Outlander: Season Three
  7. Coco+
  8. Justice League+
  9. Ferdinand+
  10. Proud Mary

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.

Of this week's 8 new releases, 'Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay' had the highest BD sales share with 70.21%. 'The Greatest Showman' wasn't too far behind with a result of 65.62%.

'Molly’s Game' got 58.68%, 'Phantom Thread' got 57.48%, while 'Braven' got 47.41%.

'Outlander: Season Three' got 43.12% and 'All the Money in the World' got 43.02%.

'Proud Mary' got 37%.

Of the two titles released on UHD, 'The Greatest Showman' had the highest UHD sales share of 6.82%, while 'Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay' got 5.49%.

Another unfair comparison as we're comparing a relatively normal week with last year's pre-Easter bump, but weekly Blu-ray market share prevented an "all red" week in the end.

Blu-ray sales decreased by $14.54m (down 28.5%), with unit sales down 29.0%.

DVD sales decreased by $24.26m (down 36.4%), with unit sales down 35.8%.

This meant $38.8 million less in combined revenue for the week.

Blu-ray's market share increased from 43.35% to 46.25%.

Top 10:

A very quiet week in which new releases were light on the ground. The best selling of the new releases, The Commuter, only managed to reach 3rd place on the sales charts.

There were only two other new releases in the entire top 20. Closely behind 'The Commuter' was The Post in 4th place.

The other new release was Deep Blue Sea 2 in 11th.

This week's Ultra HD Blu-ray report: Two out of three of this week's new releases (in the top 20) were available on UHD. Both 'The Commuter' and 'The Post' were available on UHD. UHD did a clean sweep this week, with every title in the top 10 all having UHD editions.

The complete top 10 chart is below (new releases in bold, Blu-ray exclusives are denoted by *, UHD releases denoted by +):
  1. The Greatest Showman+
  2. Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi+
  3. The Commuter+

'The Commuter' just managed to squeeze over the 50% mark in terms of BD sales share with 50.01%. 'The Post' just failed to achieve the same with 48.15%.

'Deep Blue Sea 2' managed 35%.

Of the two titles released on UHD, 'The Commuter' had the higher of the UHD sales share, with 6.50%, while 'The Post' managed 5.49%.

Top 10:

A few good releases, but none that did terrific business at the (U.S.) box office, and so Blu-ray revenue remained near last week's relative lows.

Maze Runner: The Death Cure was the week's top selling new release and overall top seller on both Blu-ray and DVD, just squeezing past 'The Greatest Showman' to the top spot this week. Maze Runner Trilogy also managed to get a top 10 finish, at 10th.

There were 6 other new releases in the top 20. Den of Thieves in 4th place was the best selling of the rest, just ahead of Hostiles in 5th place.

While it did great in overseas markets and was a critic favourite, Paddington 2 had to settle for 7th place this week on debut.

Forever My Girl was in 11th, while Grease: 40th Anniversary Edition rounded off the new releases (in the top 20) at 17th.

This week's Ultra HD Blu-ray report: Three out of three of this week's seven new releases (in the top 20) were available on UHD, including top seller 'Maze Runner: Death Cure'. The other titles were 'Hostiles' and the 40th anniversary re-release of 'Grease'. So 7 titles out of this week's top 10 had UHD editions.

The complete top 10 chart is below (new releases in bold, Blu-ray exclusives are denoted by *, UHD releases denoted by +):
  1. Maze Runner: The Death Cure+
  2. The Greatest Showman+
  3. Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi+
  4. Den of Thieves
  5. Hostiles+
  6. Thor: Ragnarok+
  7. Paddington 2
  8. The Commuter+
  9. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle+
  10. Maze Runner Trilogy

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, 'Grease' naturally had the best BD sales share, with 86.99% choosing to buy the movie on Blu-ray. The 'Maze Runner Trilogy', being a similar type of release, also did well with 63.38%. The week's actual top seller, 'Maze Runner: The Death Cure', managed 57.95%, just ahead of the 57.87% earned by 'Den of Thieves'.

'Paddington 2' also got above the 50% mark with 50.95%.

'Hostiles' got 43% while 'Forever My Girl' got 30%.

For the UHD releases, 'Grease' managed a very respectable 37.24%, with 'Hostiles' on 9.20% and 'Maze Runner: The Death Cure' on 7.74%.

Blu-ray and DVD revenue remained largely unchanged compared to the previous week. This is despite five new releases in the top 20, including the week's top seller, Peter Rabbit.

It easily outsold the number two title, and also new release, 12 Strong.

It was then down to 7th for the next new release, Winchester.

Outside of the top 10, Mary and the Witch’s Flower finished in 11th, while the latest in the ''Tremors' series Tremors: A Cold Day in Hell was at 14th.

The complete top 10 chart is below (new releases in bold, Blu-ray exclusives are denoted by *, UHD releases denoted by +):
  1. Peter Rabbit+

'Winchester' got 43%.
