‘Jurassic World’ on Pace to Be Year’s Best-Selling Home Entertainment Release

Dinosaurs rule the earth again.

After shattering box office records last summer, Universal’s “Jurassic World” is a home entertainment blockbuster. The fourth installment in the popular franchise has generated $82.6 million across both physical and digital formats and sold nearly three million units on Blu-ray and DVD in its first week of release. Its debut week success outpaced by 25% the high-water mark established for the year by “Big Hero 6.”

The film is on track to be the best-selling Blu-ray and DVD title of 2015. It may also become the biggest live-action Blu-ray title in history and Universal’s most popular release.

Its success is notable because it takes place at a time when the home entertainment is very much in flux. Total home video spending fell nearly 2% last year, as a rise in digital sales and rentals, and subscription streaming service revenues failed to offset declines in the DVD business.

Jurassic World” currently ranks as the third highest grossing film in history, with nearly $1.7 billion at the global box office. Its success helped drive Universal to the best year in industry history. The studio also released such hits as “Pitch Perfect 2,” “Fifty Shades of Grey” and “Minions.”
