“Kick-Ass” debuts at number one on the DVD sales chart

HollywoodNews.com: After selling 1.4 million units within its first week, “Kick-Ass” has debuted at number one on the DVD sales chart.

The Blu-ray combo pack of the film (three discs- including Blu-ray, DVD and digital copy), also debuted at number one. In addition, the release came out of its first weekend as the top movie download on the iTunes store, Zune and Sony/Playstation and achieved the biggest digital week performance ever by a Lionsgate title.

Kick-Ass, which grossed nearly $50 million domestically and $100 million worldwide during its theatrical run, also achieved the highest box office-to-DVD conversion rate for all major DVD releases this quarter, helping Lionsgate to maintain their industry leadership in box office-to-DVD conversion. Lionsgate also had the top two converting titles last quarter for films over $10 million box office with From Paris With Love and Daybreakers.

“Kick-Ass is truly one of the most unique, entertaining, and action-packed movies of the year,” said Ron Schwartz, Lionsgate General Manager and Executive Vice President. “With its strong word-of-mouth, we felt confident that it would have a powerful home entertainment debut and are particularly pleased with the success of the Blu-ray combo pack, which accounted for 42% of week one sell-through revenue.”
