    Thank you for these links @Greenlite and @Geetard, thanks a ton. It's incredibly satisfying to know that one of my favorite CBM of all time did so well in terms of revenue from the Blu-Ray and DVD sales and merchandises. I'm really so happy right now. :chd::chd:

    Was there ever any conclusion made about whether the Ultimate Edition being on Blu Ray helped sales for Dawn of Justice?

    This was posted in the BvS main thread.

    Now from this link it's clear that Furious 7 made good money from Blu-Ray and DVD sales even though it's only at the top in it's first week of release while BvS UC was at the top in it's first 4 weeks after release and it probably was on top for another week before The Jungle Book released.

    After almost 7 weeks, BvS still remained a top seller in the Blu-Ray and DVD market.

    http://variety.com/2016/film/news/the-jungle-book-notches-second-week-atop-disc-charts-1201860880/

    I think it's fair to say that the UC definitely helped BvS a great deal when it comes to Blu-Ray and DVD sales.

    It really dispels the myth that the theatrical box office is when the film stops making money. The DVD/Blu Ray/Digital Download is more important than ever.

    Exactly. :up:

    Among CBMs, the best performers when it comes to Blu-Ray and DVD sales are....

    1>The Avengers


    2>TDKR
    3>GotG
    4>MOS

    I love it, MOS got a lot of love from people and it makes me so happy. :woot::woot:

    Really? The Dark Knight isn't there, but Rises is? Interesting, though I don't think that Blu Ray had caught on in 2008 versus 2012, so maybe that's part of the reason.

    'Sales estimates are for sales since July 21, 2009, when our Blu-ray sales tracking started. Sales for The Dark Knight are therefore incomplete. All other titles have complete data.'

    http://www.the-numbers.com/alltime-bluray-sales-chart

    TDK came out in December 2008, so a lot of sales figures missing there since their list begins in July 2009.

    I did read it. If I drop a link, it means I read it. If you read it, you'll see there are separate unit sales charts for standard DVD ad Blu-ray.

    This article which I will link to now was published 4.5 months after Man of Steel dropped on home video/digital. It's generated a minimum of another $40 million in those formats, and as you can see by the Nash chart in the other link, the Blu-ray continues to sell.

    Forget the Blu-Ray sales bro, the DVD sales of TDK is pure madness. :woot::woot::woot:

    On DVD sales alone, TDK made $282,292,956. :yay:

    I don't represent the mainstream or everyone else, but I bought the BvS UE on the first day it came out, and if SS doesn't have an UE and the blu ray features are the same on DVD, I'll just buy it when it's like $10 in 2 months. Here we got the same special features for both blu-ray and dvd for TDK, TDKR and BvS (except the UE, that's only blu ray, so I bought a blu ray player for it, helped by the fact that I found out blu ray players stream videos from my computer and online, so I managed to binge watch Gotham S2 on TV, way better than watching the little computer screen, very happy for an out of date guy like me)

    I know!

    Does anyone know how much $ MOS actually made on blu ray? Then we can work back on roughly how much its toys/t-shirts etc made.

    http://screenrant.com/christopher-nolan-director-dunkirk-salary/
    Nolan is being paid $20 million upfront plus 20 percent of the gross for Dunkirk

    Wonder how much the DCEU directors are getting, I always thought directors get about 5M for big budget movies.

    That was never a thing. When J.E. Epstein published The Hollywood Economist back in 2010 analyzing and detailing box performance for movies of the past 50 years, one of the thing he highlighted was that, back in the early 2000's, box office basically accounted for less than 18% of the total revenue a movie generates. The trend, all the way back from the late 40's actually, shows that share steadily decreasing over time and even though the home video market is not as strong and profitable as it was say 10 years ago there so many new factors, techs and players nowadays that it's safe to say that we probably are at an even lower level now. And that is just for your regular blockbuster not necessarily the merchandise inclined comic book movies.

    A certain poster here insisted the revenue from home entertainment/merchandising takes so long to come in that it's not significant, or rather his point was b.o. revenue is the most most most important thing because you get it upfront basically.

    Numbers from previously released CBMs

    TASM grossed 257.8 million after 52 days. In the subsequent weekend it made 0.49 million and it's final domestic gross stands at 262 million.

    Ant-Man grossed 174.5 million after 56 days. In the next 3 days it grossed 1.6 million and it's final domestic tally is at 178.3 million.

    GotG made 315.4 million after 56 days and it's final domestic gross is 333 million.

    If these numbers are any indication, SS will definitely reach 321+5=326 million.

    If SS does 40% of what GotG did from this point onward, final domestic gross will be 321+(40% of 17.5)=328 million.

    I think we should compare SS's 8th week with GotG's 10th week as both made 3.9M. Comparing their respective 56th day (and the money they made/ will make in the rest of their run) isn't quite apt, considering GotG made 477k and SS made 161k.

    You're right and that's why I didn't say that SS will do GotG numbers. I compared TASM and Ant-Man's theatrical run and it indicates that SS will rake in at least 4.5-5 million from now onward to the end of its theatrical run.

    As for GotG comparisons, in my last sentence I wrote SS might do 40% of GotG's gross from it's 56th day. Hence 40% of 17.5 million added to the existing domestic BO of SS, making the final tally closer to 328 million. I'm not really counting on it but it could happen.

    If that was true and If the revenue generated from the sale of merchandise stuff was indeed insignificant, then.. Marvel Studios would not have cared to get back merchandise rights to Spider-man movie back from Sony Pictures.

    And, Studios would never bother to release tons of merch stuff, if the profit was such insignificant amount, which is not the case at all.
