I thought Batman Begins sucked and was really boring. That being said, even I would call its sales very solid as well as its rental numbers. It should do 45 Million in rentals.

As for The Longest Yard, I think 60 Million is a bit much but it is possible. I would say it should end up around 55 Million or somewhere between 55-60 Million.

Batman Begins is holding on well and looks to reach at least $50 million in rentals.

House of D is pretty big on rentals, heading towards $15 million. Much much better than what it did in theatres.

But ABC started Alias when it was going through a stage having nobody watching.

ALIAS is the more superior show though.

Episode III & Battlefront II Generate $210M

Quote:
In just one week of release, Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith on DVD and the "Star Wars Battlefront II" video game brought in sales of US$210 million in the U.S., Canada, the U.K., Germany, Italy, Spain, Australia and Latin America, capping a record-breaking year for the Star Wars franchise.

The two newest Star Wars home-entertainment releases debut in four more major international markets through Nov. 23.

Jim Ward, Senior Vice President of Lucasfilm Ltd. and President of LucasArts, said, "The phenomenal sales underscore the enduring strength of the series. In many territories, DVD and game sales were nearly double what we initially expected. Consumers are clearly eager to experience the movie again in pristine DVD quality and to immerse themselves in the Star Wars universe by playing 'Star Wars Battlefront II.'"

"Star Wars Battlefront II" is poised to overtake last year's original "Star Wars Battlefront" as the best-selling Star Wars video game of all time, with first-week sales 40 percent ahead of its predecessor, Ward said.

The record-breaking sales of the "Revenge of the Sith" DVD and "Battlefront II" continue a trend that began on May 19, when "Star Wars: Episode III" opened in movie theaters in the U.S. to widespread critical acclaim and smashed the one-day box-office total with $50.6 million in sales. Throughout the summer, "Revenge of the Sith" set new box-office standards, taking in $380 million in the U.S. and $468 million internationally, becoming the worldwide No. 1 movie of the year.

But the popularity of Star Wars goes well beyond cinema and home entertainment. The NPD Group recently reported that Star Wars is the most popular toy property by far, with 9.1% of the entire U.S. toy market heading into the key holiday period, outselling its nearest rival by a nearly 2-to-1 margin.

Star Wars was the most popular Halloween costume line in 2005, and around the world an unprecedented four specially created museum exhibits celebrating Star Wars are running simultaneously. On Thursday, Nov. 10, even Donald Trump will enter the Star Wars universe as NBC airs a special Star Wars-themed version of The Apprentice.



Is 210m THAT much when you combine a $50 game with a dvd that shouldve sold a shit load? Especially when you throw in the fact they added U.K., Germany, Italy, Spain, Australia and Latin America to the mix. Strange they just wont give us figures, maybe tomorrow or thursday will get some figures of how much of dvd sold. It's good and all but I wanna see soem actual dvd sale figures and from the U.S. not combining with other markets.

A spokesman for 20th Century Fox declined to break down sales figures, either by revenue or units sold. A report in Daily Variety estimated that 90 percent of the $115 million -- or roughly $103 million -- came from DVD sales, mostly in the United States.


LINK

Based on the original trilogy DVD and Battlefront game ratio of 90/10, I would say $190M in DVD/Video sales and $20M in Battlefront II sales.

The first week DVD sales would equate to 12 Million Units, about what Shrek 2 did in 3 days.

Didn't Dhrewk 2 do that in the US alone, though? They count Germany, Latin America, Italy and others here as well.

'Star Wars' DVD, game rake in $210 mil

The new "Star Wars" DVD and video game generated an estimated $210 million in worldwide consumer spending their first week in stores, 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment said Tuesday. "Star Wars: Episode III -- Revenge of the Sith," the sixth and final "Star Wars" film to appear on DVD, was released Nov. 1 in the U.S., Canada, the United Kingdom, Germany, Australia and Latin America, as was the video game "Star Wars Battlefront II." The two titles will debut in four more major international markets by Nov. 23. Fox provided no breakdown between the DVD and the video game, nor did it issue unit sales. Jim Ward, senior vp Lucasfilm Ltd. and president of LucasArts, would only say sales in many territories "were nearly double what we initially expected," and that first-week sales of the video game are running 40% ahead of last year's original "Star Wars Battlefront" game. Sources estimate first-week DVD sales of "Sith" in the U.S. came in at 5.3 million units. (Thomas K. Arnold)

That 5.3 Million Units is pure BS since US has about 60% of the DVD market in the world and ROTS DVd was not released all over the world but in a few countries. That would mean Battlefront II game did sell over $100M.

Heh. Well, I was referring to the DVD sales of Batman Begins, where jb007 considered it "bad." When Batman Begins, which made $205 million in the box-office, sells 4 million units in one week, it's bad. When Sith, which grossed $380 million, sells 5.1 million units, the article is "BS."

5.3M units would be a huge stepdown for ROTS, if it were true. But the numbers do not add up.

5.3 mil units is about 80 mil.

DVD sales in 7 countries and Battlefront II did not account for $130M. If they did that would have broken all records overseas. For ex. Shrek 2's 37 million units had 24 mil. domestic and 13 overseas.

Fox wouldve made it clear how well RotS sold in the U.S. if they werent a little dissapointed by the sales, the fact that they didnt release sales figures after day 1 should tell you it's sales couldnt have been THAT hot, I doubt hollywood would be that off on the sales of copies of RotS in the U.S, not possible.

Yeah, seriously. For big films like this, sales figures are usually released. I'm sure people would question how good DVD's are doing if Sith *only* sold around 5.1 million in the US this week. It's a decent figure, no doubt, but not quite as high as other blockbusters.
