Twilight is Top-Selling Release of 2009

    The Twilight DVD sold 5.6 million DVDs and Blu-Ray discs in its first week of sale this month according to Hollyscoop.com which makes it the Top-selling release of 2009 beating Madagascar: Escape to Africa.

    We’ve all come to be familiar with the magnitude of Twilight. It began with the books, and quickly the movie became extremely popular. It topped both U.S. and U.K. box office charts last year, with estimated earnings of $376 million.

    And now that it’s just been released on DVD, Twilight has become the biggest home release of the year. Not too surprising. The film sold 5.6 million DVDs and Blu-Ray discs in its first week of sale this month, overtaking Madagascar: Escape To Africa as the most popular release of 2009.

    VideoBusiness.com reports, “A common yardstick used by studios is 20,000 units in first-week sales per $1 million at the box office, which would put the expectation for Twilight, with a $191 million box-office take, at 3.8 million units sold in its first week. At 5.2 million units, Twilight performed more like a $260 million theatrical release.”

    Summit’s home entertainment chief, Steve Nickerson, attributed the title’s success in large part to its Saturday release, noting that many retailers would not have staged midnight parties for a standard Tuesday release. “These girls would rather have a community event. All we did was help facilitate what the fans would want.” Click here to read more.
