Is there a statistic site for money made from DVD sales versus Theatrical run?

Is there a statistic site for money made from DVD sales versus Theatrical run?

I'm trying to figure out films that made tons of money in the theater, but didn't make a lot on DVD and vice versa (movies that made little money in the theater but made tons of money on DVD).

Does anyone know anything like this?

And off the top of anyone's heads, can anyone think of a film that made tons of money in the theater, but no one was really interested in buying the DVD?

Does that site constantly update the totals?

I don't understand how Transformers only made 24 million on dvd? While Iron Man made 151 million on DVD? Is that the most recent total of the Transformers DVD?

that site, The-Numbers.com is updated weekly so yes I would say that info is current That site gets it totals from retailers so once they stop reporting it then that certain title wont be updated anymore

Well I said they update every week and I go there every week to check what is happening so yes the totals are correct that they have..their the most current! Also you have to remember that after the studios stop tracking DVD sales that certain DVD wont be updated anymore or at least until the stores stop reporting it.

Not sure about DVD vs. ticket sales, but the site I use all the time for statistical info like that is BoxOfficeMojo.
