Insiders are telling me that end-of-November and even end of-year stats regarding DVD sales of 2008’s major movie titles are looking like a disaster areas. The guesstimates are that even blockbuster titles like Iron Man and Hancock will be down 30% this month. The Industry is admitting they’re also off 6% for the year so far and will likely end up 8% to 10% behind 2007. Interesting that studios which earlier claimed their film biz was near-recession proof are now blaming the economy rather than new digital media delivery options.
