Sony Pictures’ Bad Boys for Life remained No. 1 on the NPD VideoScan First Alert chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc unit sales, and the dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart the week ended May 2.
A lack of notable new releases during the week helped the action sequel hold onto the top spot for the second consecutive week by a wide margin.
Likewise, No. 2 on both charts for the second week in a row was Disney’s Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, now in its fifth week on disc. It had been No. 1 its first three weeks on shelves.
The week’s top newcomer, at No. 3 on both charts, was Warner’s direct-to-video animated movie Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion’s Revenge, the latest adaptation of the “Mortal Kombat” video game. Blu-ray Disc formats accounted for 73% of first-week Mortal Kombat sales, with the 4K Ultra HD edition comprising 10% of its total.
Jumping up two spots to No. 4 on the overall chart (and No. 6 on the Blu-ray chart) was Sony Pictures’ Jumanji: The Next Level, in its seventh week.
The No. 4 Blu-ray seller, holding its spot from last week, was Well Go USA’s Ip Man 4: The Finale. It dropped two spots to No. 6 on the overall sales chart.
Holding onto the No. 5 spot on both charts was Universal’s Dolittle.
On the Media Play News rental chart for the week ended May 3, Paramount’s Sonic the Hedgehog took over the No. 1 spot after being made available early for rental on Redbox disc kiosks. The disc won’t be available for sale until May 19.
Bad Boys for Life dropped to No. 2. Universal’s The Gentlemen slipped to No. 3, while Dolittle maintained the No. 4 spot, and Paramounts Like a Boss dropped to No. 5.
