Even though a movie's box office numbers are a good sign of its popularity, we could agree that Blu-Ray sales reinforces that movie's popularity, because you can buy a ticket to see the movie only one time, but buying the movie in Blu-Ray, that's forever! Here is the list that the movie tracking website The Numbers has provided!
10- The Hangover
Although the 2 last movies were a disappointement, it had no effect in the Blu-Ray sales of the first movie wich is still a fun individual comedy that we all love.
Original Release Date: December 15, 2009
Total Units Sold: 3,435,979
Total Consumer Spending: $57,412,803
9- The Hunger Games
The original Hunger Games movie currently olds the number 9 spot in this list, but other young adult novel adaptations like Twilight and Harry Potter were kept out of this list.
Original Release Date: August 18, 2012
Total Units Sold: 3,636,290
Total Consumer Spending: $69,300,562
8- Guardians of the Galaxy
In addition to being one of the biggest, most critically-beloved domestic hits of the year, Guardians of the Galaxy is the only late 2014 movie to show up on this list and what’s even more amazing is the fact that it’s place at number eight only after a month and a half in release.

There is a high rewatchability factor in Inception, generated both by its exciting, creative storytelling and the confusion generated by its complex, multi-layered plot.
Original Release Date:December 7, 2010
Total Units Sold: 3,841,600
Total Consumer Spending: $77,215,048
6-The Dark Knight Rises
It’s likely that the finale outranks its predecessors because it was the only one in the series released on home video during the height of the Blu-ray format’s popularity, but moving nearly 4 million units is quite an achievement.
Original Release Date:December 4, 2012
Total Units Sold: 3,971,577

5- Star Trek
J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek reboot didn’t make as much theatrically as many of the other titles on this list, but it evidently has been a huge winner on home video. Maybe the release of Star Trek Into Darkness boosted the sales because the fans needed some refreshement of the latest movie.
Original Release Date: November 17, 2009
Total Units Sold: 3,997,167
Total Consumer Spending: $90,374,375
