‘Captain Marvel’ Holds Onto Position Atop Disc Sales Charts

Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel maintained the No. 1 spot on the NPD VideoScan First Alert chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc unit sales, and the dedicated Blu-ray Disc chart the week ended June 22.

The Disney-distributed superhero blockbuster had debuted in the top spot a week earlier.

The week’s top newcomer was Universal Pictures’ Us, which debuted at No. 2 on both charts, selling about one-third as many copies as Captain Marvel.

The latest horror film from director Jordan Peele earned $175 million at the domestic box office, about the same haul of his first film, 2017’s Get Out.

Another newcomer, Paramount’s Wonder Park, landed at No. 3 on both charts. The animated film, about a little girl bringing the amusement park of her imagination to life, earned $45.2 million in U.S. theaters.

The No. 4 title on the overall sales chart was Lionsgate’s A Madea Family Funeral, which was No. 13 on the Blu-ray chart.
