Default What will HMM report as BD revenues for Sun-Sat 09/17/11? Star Wars & Thor

Second week of the polling season for this fall.

Thor have a normal Tuesday release and the Star Wars Saga is being released on a Friday, so the Nielsen Videoscan narrative and charts will only include three days of sales data and the Sunday-Saturday Home Media Magazine Blu-ray revenues for the week will only include two days of sales (Friday and Saturday) in the reporting period week ending Saturday 9/10/11.

X-Men:First Class is in its first full week of release.

We should get this sales data reported early next week.

There will also be a matching poll on the estimates for the sales for Star Wars as reported by The-Numbers for the week in a separate thread as well as a third matching poll for the overall Blu-ray revenue marketshare for the week (the pie chart).

This poll is for the reported total Blu-ray revenues for the week from HMM.


As an incentive each week, I will be keeping track of the guesses for each poster for all of the weekly polls and I will award the weekly winners something each week as well as having a seasonal winner after the 4Q 2011 sales period has ended later on this year. I might be able to even do something tangible through paypal or something like that.

Any comments to explain or change your vote can be placed in the thread as well as any sales reports for this week as appropriate.

I personally will probably be voting on this thread after we receive the Nielsen Videoscan reports next Wednesday or possibly as late as just before it closes next Sunday. I would wish to see some responses in any case before I make my guess even though I might share some thoughts in the comments below.

Have fun.

Even though Star Wars will only have two days of sales in this week, I'm feeling bullish. Especially with Thor and the first full week of X-Men. Amazon hasn't even started the shipping process for my copy of Star Wars, which to me suggests crazy amounts of preorders. And I popped in a Best Buy this afternoon and only saw one copy of the complete saga left in stock. I think this one's (unsurprisingly) flying off the shelves.

I voted $100M plus. If this week doesn't at least come close to that amount with an $80 Star Wars and two major superhero flicks, something's wrong.

I am not going to vote until I see the Wed first alert report but you may be on to something there.

I'm doing some shopping this evening and I'm going to take a look at my local retailers tonight.

I'll bite.

$15-$20 M Sun-Sat Everything else.
$15-$20 M Sun-Sat first full week X-Men:First Class
$20-$25 M Tue-Sat of Thor normal week
$25-$35 M Fri-Sat of Star Wars , Sunday going to next week

$75 M to $100 M

Better guess possible after we get X-Men: First Class revenues from last week

No. Cakefoo bit. He voted.

Sounds a tad optimistic to me. Let's see if you stick to it after you finish reviewing Wednesday's cheat sheet. :wink:

That's a range not a vote. :wink: :tongue: :biggrin:

Besides I have stated I will give my current thoughts in the thread before I pull the trigger on my guess anyways. The Nielsen Videoscan first alert report ain't a cheat sheet brother, its the first chapter in the weekly bible. :smile:
