‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ Rocked the Sales Charts for February 2019

Bohemian Rhapsody, 20th Century Fox’s biopic of the rock band Queen and lead singer Freddie Mercury, was No. 1 on the top 10 list of combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc unit sales for February 2019 according to the NPD Group’s VideoScan tracking service.

The film was the top seller its first week in stores following its Feb. 12 debut and has been in the top five ever since.

Universal’s animated The Grinch, released on disc the week before Bohemian Rhapsody, was No. 2 for the month.

Warner’s latest remake of A Star Is Born, on shelves Feb. 19, was the month’s No. 3 seller.

Disney’s Ralph Breaks the Internet, released at the end of February, landed at No. 4.

The Feb. 19 release of Lionsgate’s Robin Hood remake came in at No. 5.

February’s top four sellers sold well enough to take over the top four spots on the year-to-date sales charts as well, in the same order.

Universal’s reboot sequel Halloween, the top seller for January, slipped to No. 5 for the year to date.

Disney had three titles in the top 10 for February, as did Fox in its final full month as an independently operated studio before its acquisition by Disney was finalized March 20. That effectively gives Disney control of six of the month’s top 10.
