    Top 20:

    The week after Easter is usually a slow week with few releases, and it wasn't really that different for this year.

    The 4K release of Major League was the best-selling new release on the combined Blu-ray and 4K chart (it was number one on the 4K chart).

    The rest of the new releases were all part of Disney's Walmart exclusive 4K SteelBook re-releases featuring exclusive art by Mondo. Guardians of the Galaxy sold the best, at 8th (2nd on the 4K chart), The Avengers was 10th (3rd on the 4K chart), Doctor Strange was 11th (4th), and Black Panther was 14th (7th).

    This week's 4K Ultra HD report: All of this week's aforementioned new releases were 4K only releases. 9 titles out of this week's top 10 had UHD editions.

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

    Blu-ray, Ultra HD Blu-ray Sales Share:

    The BD sales share is the percentage of disc packages sold for that contained the titles's Blu-ray edition (including combos, and Ultra HD editions) for a particular title. 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.

    All of this week's new releases were 4K exclusives, so no BD sales share nor 4K sales share (or rather, all were at 100%).

    Top 20:

    A couple of new releases, but Blu-ray and 4K total sales share was still relatively low.

    The top-seller for the week was The Iron Claw, which wasn't available on UHD.

    In fourth place was Berserk:The Complete 1997 TV Series (again, no 4K edition), and then it was all the way down in 12th for the new release, Bleach: Thousand-Year Blood War - Part 1 (again, no 4K edition).

    When Evil Lurks was 14th, and as is the theme this week, it did not come in 4K.

    There were more new releases on the 4K only sales chart.

    The 4K edition of Primal Fear was 9th on the chart, followed by the Criterion edition of To Die For in 10th (a Blu-ray edition was available, but it didn't manage to sell enough copies to get into the combined Blu-ray and 4K top 20). A similar situation occurred for Paint Your Wagon in 11th.

    Night of the Blood Monster (also known as The Bloody Judge) was 16th.

    This week's 4K Ultra HD report: As mentioned earlier, "Primal Fear" was a 4K exclusive, whereas "To Die For", "Paint Your Wagon", and "Night of the Blood Monster" all had both Blu-ray and 4K editions. 8 titles out of this week's top 10 had UHD editions.

    Blu-ray, Ultra HD Blu-ray Sales Share:

    The BD sales share is the percentage of disc packages sold for that contained the titles's Blu-ray edition (including combos, and Ultra HD editions) for a particular title. 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.

    This week's top-seller "The Iron Claw" was actually a Blu-ray only release, the same for "When Evil Lurks", so there were no new releases that had a DVD edition and therefore a BD sales share.

    On the 4K chart, we did have a few releases that had both Blu-ray and 4K editions, but non had a 4K sales share that was high enough to get into the 4K sales share top 20.

    Top 20:

    We are missing the format market share stats for this week.

    Last week was a huge list of new releases. This week, very much the opposite.

    The only new release in the combined Blu-ray and 4K top 20 was the 4K boxet The Ring Collection in 17th place (it was 6th on the 4K chart). Even the 4K only chart was fairly quiet, with the only other new release being K-19: The Widowmaker in 15th.

    This week's 4K Ultra HD report: We only have 4K releases this week. Every single title in this week's top 10 had UHD editions!

    The complete Blu-ray top 10 chart is below (new releases in bold, Blu-ray exclusives are denoted by *, UHD releases denoted by +):
    1. Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom+
    2. *Aliens+

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.

    As all three new releases were 4K only releases, they neither had BD sales share figures (which requires a separate DVD edition) nor UHD sales share figures (which requires a separate Blu-ray or DVD edition).

    Top 20:

    A huge list of new releases helped Blu-ray and 4K market share almost get above the DVD market share.

    On the very top of the combined Blu-ray and 4K chart was Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom (download 4K trailer), and it was on top of the 4K only chart as well.

    Disney's Wish (download 4K trailer) was second on the combined chart (it was 6th on the 4K only chart as the 4K edition was a Walmart exclusive).

    The first of a trio of James Cameron supervised remastered 4K editions was next, the Ultimate Collector's Edition of The Abyss was 4th (2nd on the 4K chart), with True Lies in 5th (3rd on the 4K chart). Aliens is the last of the remastered releases, in 7th (4th on the 4K chart).

    Poor Things was 8th (no 4K edition was made available unfortunately for this and all the following new releases, with one exception - download 4K trailer), while Suzume was 9th.

    Anyone But You was 11th. Ferrari was 13th. The Color Purple was 15th (a 4K edition was available, but it didn't sell enough to get into the top 20 - download 4K trailer), Rick and Morty: Season 7 was 16th.

    Looney Tunes Collector’s Choice Vol. 3 was 19th, and finally, Freelance was 20th.

    But wait, there's more. There are also a couple of 4K only releases in the 4K top 20. Quigley Down Under was 14th, Kung Fu Panda was 16th, and the SteelBook reprint of Dragonslayer was 20th.

    Phew.

    This week's 4K Ultra HD report: "Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom", "Wish", and the 4K only releases, all had 4K editions. 8 titles out of this week's top 10 had UHD editions.

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

    Blu-ray, Ultra HD Blu-ray Sales Share:

    The BD sales share is the percentage of disc packages sold for that contained the titles's Blu-ray edition (including combos, and Ultra HD editions) for a particular title. 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.

    "Poor Things" actually had the best BD sales share of all the new releases above that had separate DVD editions - it had a BD sales share of 68.75%. "Rick and Morty: Season 7" was next with 62.08%.

    "Ferrari" was next with 57.38%, just above "Wish" with 55.68%. Top seller "Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom" managed 55.60%.

    "Anyone But You" got 48.01%, while "The Color Purple" got 32%. "Freelance" only managed 24%.

    On 4K, "Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom" got a UHD sales share of 17.54%. "Wish" had a UHD sales share of 13.19% despite the 4K edition only being made available at Walmart.

    "The Color Purple" only managed a UHD sales share of 4.88%.

    Top 20:

    A very very quiet week in which there were actually zero new releases in the combined Blu-ray and 4K top 20, and only three new releases in the 4K only top 20.

    These were the Walmart SteelBook release of Creature From the Black Lagoon in 12th, The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance in 13th, and the SteelBook edition of Event Horizon in 20th.

    All three new releases in the 4K only top 10 were released as 4K exclusives, and so there's no BD or UHD sales share to speak of (or rather, they are all at 100%).

    Top 20:

    Two relatively big releases, and a host of other releases, is what's new for this week.

    Wonka was the top-seller for the week, easily beating Migration in second place. The previous was also top of the 4K only chart, while the latter was 6th.

    The Walmart exclusive SteelBook version of American Psycho was 8th (4th on the 4K chart), while Dream Scenario was 9th (it wasn't available on 4K).

    The Walmart exclusive Blu-ray version of Twister (not available on 4K), just in time for the new movie coming out soon, was 11th.

    A new 4K edition of All Quiet on the Western Front was 16th (8th on the 4K chart) and it was the last new release on the combined 4K and Blu-ray chart.

    There were a couple of more new releases on the 4K only chart.

    The 4K edition of the very prescient film Contagion was 11th on the 4K chart.

    Two classics were the next two new releases, Gunfight at the O.K. Corral and the Criterion version of The Roaring Twenties were 12th and 13th respectively.

    The Walmart exclusive 4K SteelBook editions of Dredd, Train to Busan and Creepshow was 14th, 17th, and 19th.

    And finally, Fear and Desire was 18th. That's a long list of new releases.

    This week's 4K Ultra HD report: The only title without a 4K edition was "Dream Scenario". 8 titles out of this week's top 10 had UHD editions.

    On 4K, "Wonka" had a 4K sales share of 18.73% and "Migration" managed 7.40%. "The Roaring Twenties" failed to make the 4K sales share top 20.

    Top 20:

    We are back to it being a quiet week on the combined Blu-ray and 4K charts, but at least there were a few 4K exclusives.

    The best-selling new release was actually the 4K release of Darkman, 6th on the combined chart and 4th on the 4K only chart.

    The 4K Limited Edition SteelBook edition of Paprika was 8th (6th on the 4K chart).

    With a new Beverly Hills Cop movie coming, you can buy the first three movies in this 4K re-release box set. Beverly Hills Cop 3-Movie Collection was 15th on the combined chart, and 7th on the 4K chart.

    The Criterion Collection edition of The Heroic Trio/Executioners, available on 4K and Blu-ray, was 17th (11th on the 4K chart).

    And finally on the combined chart, Leviathan was 19th (9th on the 4K chart).

    A couple of more releases on the 4K-only chart. Beverly Hills Cop 3 was 10th and The Last Castle was 16th.

    This week's 4K Ultra HD report: All the new releases listed above had 4K editions. 9 titles out of this week's top 10 had UHD editions.

    Blu-ray, Ultra HD Blu-ray Sales Share:

    The BD sales share is the percentage of disc packages sold for that contained the titles's Blu-ray edition (including combos, and Ultra HD editions) for a particular title. 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.

    Every new release mentioned above was a Blu-ray or 4K release, so there's nothing to report in terms of BD sales share, and the two titles that did have simultaneous Blu-ray and 4K releases ("Paprika" and "The Heroic Trio/Executioners") didn't do well enough on 4K to get into the 4K sales share top 20 chart.

    A total contrast to the previous week, in which we have plenty of new releases in both the combined Blu-ray/4K top 20 and the 4K only top 20.

    The top-seller for the week on the combined chart was The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes (download 4K trailer), selling just enough copies to beat the second-placed The Marvels (download 4K trailer). It was just the reverse on the 4K only chart, with "The Marvels" on top.

    Priscilla was 5th (no 4K edition was made available), while Planet Earth III was 7th (4th on the 4K chart).

    The 40th anniversary 4K release of Footloose was 8th (5th on the 4K chart).

    And finally on the combined chart, Hypnotic (download 4K trailer) was 14th.

    There were a couple of other new entries into the top 20 on the 4K chart. The Amazon-exclusive Universal Classic Monsters Limited Edition Collection was 7th on the 4K chart, while another classics box set, the Columbia Classics 4K Ultra HD Collection Vol. 4 was 8th.

    The 4K edition of Willy’s Wonderland, including the SteelBook edition, was 10th.

    This week's 4K Ultra HD report: Only "Priscilla" wasn't made available on 4K or wasn't a 4K exclusive. 9 titles out of this week's top 10 had UHD editions.

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

    Blu-ray, Ultra HD Blu-ray Sales Share:

    The BD sales share is the percentage of disc packages sold for that contained the titles's Blu-ray edition (including combos, and Ultra HD editions) for a particular title. 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.

    "Planet Earth III" (a title which I would have expected it to be Blu-ray exclusive) was made available on DVD, and so it had a BD sales share - the highest of the week at 84.56%.

    "The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes" got 70.77%, just ahead of "The Marvels" at 68.99%. "Hypnotic" got 25%.

    On 4K, "The Marvels" led with a 4K sales share of 36.63%, "The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes" with 22.67%.

    A super quiet week in which Waitress: The Musical, in 19th (!), was the sole new release in the top 20, and there were no 4K releases to save the day either with no new releases in the 4K top 20.

    The combined 4K UHD and Blu-ray market share decreased from 48.2% to 35.1%. The big decrease is due to "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever" being released a year ago, versus almost no releases this week.

    Another very quiet week in which Justice League: Crisis on Infinite Earths - Part One was the sole new release in the Blu-ray and 4K/Blu-ray combined top 20 - it was third on both the combined chart and 4K only chart. There was one more release in the all-physical-media top 20, Special Ops: Lioness - Part One, which was 17th on the all-physical-media chart.

    This week's 4K Ultra HD report: "Justice League: Crisis on Infinite Earths - Part One" was made available on 4K SteelBook, "Special Ops: Lioness - Part One" was Blu-ray and DVD only. Every single title out of this week's top 10 had UHD editions!

    Welcome back to the first, and updated, edition of this feature for 2024. Media Play News has (for now) discontinued reporting weekly revenue figures, and so this feature will now focus on market share and the weekly new releases. If/when revenue reporting continues again, we will update this post with the new information.

    The first week of a new year is usually a quiet one for new releases, and 2024 didn't prove to be any different. The only new release in any of the top 20 charts was The Holdovers, coming in at 5th place.

    Top 20:

    The last full week of the year is usually a quiet one, what with Christmas stuck in the middle of it. As a result, Blu-ray sales dropped back down from recent levels. As is the tradition for this time of the year, new releases are light on the ground, or in the case for this week, non-existent in the top 20.

    Comparing this week to the same week last year, Blu-ray sales were down 11% and DVD revenue was down 15.2%, so not a Merry Christmas for the physical media business.

    This week's 4K Ultra HD report: All of the above listed new releases were available on 4K or were 4K exclusives. Again, every single title out of this week's top 10 had UHD editions!

    No new releases to report on, but "Avatar" topped both the BD and 4K sales share charts.
