We’re taking a look at the home media sales of some of the biggest superhero films of the past year.

We broke down the Blu-ray and DVD sales of 2017’s comic book movies last year. In 2017, the number one selling comic book movie was Wonder Woman. Who can it possibly be for 2018? Now keep in mind we ranks these by units sold total, not by revenue generated.

8.) Teen Titans GO! To The Movies

DVD Sales – 39,154 units sold/$585,744
Blu-ray Sales – 116,623 units sold/$2,681,172
Total Sales – 155,777 units sold/$3,266,916

Teen Titans Go! To The Movies put on miserable performance on store shelves. It does not rank at all on the top 100 selling movies of 2018. The movie charted for two weeks and then vanished into the abyss of 2018. Straight-to-home video releases like Teen Titans vs. Justice League and Teen Titans: The Judas Contract out perform the movie in units sold. In fact, the former generated more revenue. This is a shame given Teen Titans Go! To The Movies is actually quite good. Its box office performance was adequate, turning a profit at least.

Why the low sales then? One reason that could be given is the movie did not have a huge promotional push for its home release. Let us not forget that there is a huge amount of old Teen Titans fans who refuse to give this property a chance. Yes, the film has good reviews, but that does not equate to good numbers. Remember, critics and fans alike love Batman: Mask of The Phantasm, but it was hardly a money-maker. Going off this point, a TV series turned film is not always a case for success, especially when it comes to kids shows.
