‘Black Adam’ Starts 2023 as January’s Disc Top Seller
February 22, 2023
Warner Bros. Discovery Home Entertainment’s Black Adam was No. 1 on the top 10 list of physical-media sales for January 2023, according to the NPD Group’s VideoScan tracking service that compiles DVD and Blu-ray transactions. That’s hardly surprising given that the comic book movie was the top-selling title on the weekly charts the first three weeks after its Jan. 3 release on disc.
No. 2 in January was the top seller the previous two months, Paramount Home Entertainment’s Top Gun: Maverick.
The No. 3 seller for the month was the horror sequel Halloween Ends, released by Universal Pictures Home Entertainment on disc at the end of 2022, on Dec. 27.

Similarly, the No. 5 spot went to another Dec. 13 disc release, Universal’s Ticket to Paradise, the rom-com starring Julia Roberts and George Clooney as a former married couple tried to prevent their daughter from repeating their mistakes.
