The second installment in the Hobbit Franchise, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug was one of the best selling movies in the box office in late 2013. Now that 2014 is almost over it appears that The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug is the best selling DVD & Blu-Ray for 2014. This came as a major surprise for those in the movie industry as they didn’t believe that The Hobbit Franchise would be able to gain the same popularity that The Lord of the Rings was able to accomplish. It appears as if they were wrong as The Hobbit has proven to become more popular than the original film trilogy.
The Hobbit Film Franchise takes place over three films for the one book adaptation. The reason for this is because The Hobbit is one of the most detailed & complicated books ever scripted. None the less the immense beauty, visual effects and action you see on screen while watching The Hobbit Franchise is beyond anything you’ll see in any other film. It’s that alone that has been able to bring in new viewers to a genre they’ve never experience before.
In total this DVD/Blu-Ray was able to sell a total of 1.9 Million Copies by the end of November. This is incredible, Frozen the movie created by Disney was almost able to beat the Hobbit in DVD & Blu-Ray Sales. Luckily since the Hobbit was put on sale across Northern America it was able to sell more than the animated feature known as Frozen.
