    INTRODUCTION

    Welcome to the DVD Sales thread. DVD is the only format that has sales data from its beginning (March 1997) to the present.

    SoundScan wasn't there when CD was launched back in the early eighties, so we don't know the first week sales of "Thriller" or "The Joshua Tree".

    But when DVD started officially in March 1997, VideoScan was there to track the sales of the new format.

    I'm planning to post interesting chart and sales data, but first please read the following notes:

    When you compare the sales data please remember that the DVD sales from 1997 to 2000 were very small.

    The market really took off in 2000-2001. The all time sales peak were the years from 2002 to 2005. Since 2006 sales are down, but still the format outsells every other format (CD, book etc) in the world.

    The last update for EVERY DVD TITLE's total sales number is when the particular DVD made its final appearance on the official VideoScan DVD Top 20, which means that the sales figure might be smaller in some occasions.

    There's no catalog chart for DVD. Older titles appear frequently on the weekly chart. For instance the classic Disney film "Pinnochio" originally peaked at #4 in 1999, but this year went to number one (Disney re-issue).

    Feel free to post any request about peak positions, weeks on chart and total or weekly sales.

    Either "Titanic", "The Dark Night" or any of those horrible Johnny Depp Pirate movies are #1.

    LOL, hasn't Sharon Stone's floptastic Basic Instinct 2 sold about that much?

    Sharon Stone is the signature definition of a bimbo, Ziggy. But I love her anyway.

    The Worst That Could Happen

    For the first time ever, a new James Bond DVD missed the top spot. "Quantum Of Solace" sold 1.6 in its first week which is the half of "Casino Royale" which opened with 3.1 million in 2007.

    Twilight is the #1 DVD of the year so far with 7.2 million

    PAST JAMES BOND FIRST WEEK SALES:

    21 May 2000 THE WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH Pierce Brosnan, Sophie Marceau 450.000

    8 Jun 2003 DIE ANOTHER DAY Pierce Brosnan, Halle Berry 2.600.000

    18 Mar 2007 CASINO ROYALE Daniel Craig, Eva Green 3.100.000

    "Tomorrow Never Dies" and " GoldeEye" were also number ones in 1997 and 1998 respectively.

    Only "Harry Potter" has 5 DVD titles at #1 which means that this week James Bond failed to break the record for most #1 (film series)

    "Basic Instinct 2" opened with only 180.000 the week of 16 July 2006. It was a real soft week for DVD sales. The #1 title that week sold only 200.000 units.

    Usually DVDs sell less in the summer because nobody stays home. LOL

    Sometimes (especially in the early years) these numbers may include copies bought for rental.

    A classic example was "Pearl Harbor" which went to number one with a (2001 record breaking) 3.7 million, but 3.2 million were sold to consumers.

    It's not always very clear...

    FOR THE RECORD

    "Star Wars - Revenge of the Sith" last appeared on the VS Top 20 on 8 January 2006. That's why the number is 9.8 million.

    If the DVD re-enters the Top 20 in the future the update total sales number must be higher (11-12 million perhaps).

    It was the #3 DVD of the year 2005.

    BTW I showed these numbers to a friends of mine who are(comic book)movie fans and they begged me to ask for the sales of Superman Returns and the 3 X-Men movies.

    I'll understand if it's a problem but i thank you anyway.

    I'm not sure about "Bourne" but "300" include BR sales. Of course back in 2007 BR sales were smaller.

    Transformers, Iron-Man and TDK were the first three real huge blu-ray sellers in 2008.

    In loving this thread, I second that!

    What is the #1 selling DVD movie? Spiderman? Shrek? Pirates?

    Wasn't Lion King the best selling home video?

    19k discs in the first week they were out is massive in my opinion

    and i swear i tought these figures included copies sold for rental and that was the reason why they were so high, i can't imagine so many people buying DVD's to have in their own private collection

    but maybe i just can't imagine that cuz this is not a very common trend here in Brasil i would say
