Updated CHUCK Season 5 DVD Sales Numbers - First 3 Weeks


Just checked the Season 5 sales numbers and noticed a change in the reported week 1 numbers. I have corrected this in the earlier article but have also decided to include the week 1-3 sales numbers.

Chuck: The Complete Fifth Season
Week 1 - 57,217
Week 2 - 21,612
Week 3 - 27,580

As you can see, week three sales actually increased from the previous week by 27.6%. That puts the total over 106,409 units sold so far.

Keep buying and some day fans may get that movie!

    1. It's not a high number. But it is a good sign to see week 3 beat week 2.

  5. http://www.the-numbers.com/dvd/charts/annual/2012.php

    Here's a list of sales of other DVD sales in 2012. Twilight is at the top with $94 million in sales and Cowboys and Aliens is in 50th with $6.6 million. I know Chuck Season 5 was up to $2.8 million by May 27 and it has to have passed the $3 million mark by now easily. If we could get it onto the top 50, that would be great to show WB that even a 13 episode season can beat out a Daniel Craig movie with a budget of $163 million.
    The best way to get Chuck back is to buy more copies of season 5.

    2. Do you know how much it would cost to produce a Chuck Movie? I read that the average Chuck episode cost around $2 million. The biggest blockbusters get $100 million and upwards, but Chuck wouldn't get that much for a movie. Obviously they would have to rebuild sets so that could prove to be costly. But dedicated fans would pay to see it, plus I'm sure Subway and other companies could be persuaded to sponsor it. I think Warner Bros. could profit off a Chuck movie, but I'm sure it's a lot more complicated to the people who actually are putting forth the millions of dollars.

    3. It would cost around $30 million to make a movie that didn't look like a bad TV episode.

      That's counting marketing. If you wanted a blockbuster looking movie, it would cost at least $60 to $80 million (including marketing).

      As for WB being able to profit from it, that may very well be... but they are business people and they aren't going to invest more money in an IP that is currently $100 million (or more) in the hole. That's why real work has to be done by the fans. Buy stuff. Buy as much of it as you can afford... and enjoy. Since you shouldn't be tossing money at 500 copies of season 5. Instead, spread it around to all products.

      When WB thinks CHUCK can be profitable, they will start looking into making more of it (most likely as a movie). Though, this is not a sprint to the finish. It is a marathon and we aren't even at the 1 mile marker yet.
