We examine the ancillary revenue for movies, specifically its revenue from DVD sales. We compared the sales and returns to investment for DVD among different categories of DVD titles/movies based on their movie production budgets. We find that while bigger budget movies will sell more DVDs they performed poorer when it comes to returns to investment (R.O.I.).
