DVD Sales – Mamma Mia Has Fangirls!

January 7, 2009

Scroll down for the chart. Here are DVD Sales Notes for the week ending December 28:

The Dark Knight has sold about 12 million copies! Over $250 million already! The best selling DVD of 2008 by far in just three weeks. Utter insanity.

Mamma Mia fell hard in its second week of release. It’s already earned a fantastic $106 million, but normally these sorts of drops are reserved for teen slasher flicks and sci-fi titles, which fanboys rush out to buy as soon as they debut. But in Mamma Mia‘s case, we’ve got the ever elusive fangirls!

-Jason Statham continues to prove he’s got a small but loyal DVD audience with the debut of Death Race. For a film that only earned $36 million in theaters, a $15 million first week of DVD sales ain’t too shabby.

-Don’t worry, though, fanboys are alive and well. In three weeks, Lost – The Complete Fourth Season has almost generated more revenue than The Office – Season Four, which has been out for 17 weeks! I know I picked up my copy.

The House Bunny did much better in its second week of release. While it’s $11 million total isn’t amazing, it’s proved itself to be the little engine that could over its theatrical run.

-2 million people actually bought The Mummy: Tomb Of The Dragon Emperor?! Can’t they just wait a couple months and watch it non-stop on USA?

-I love how much Wall-E has made so far.
