The superhero comedy Deadpool 2, from 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment, topped the home video sales charts for a second consecutive week and took over the top spot on the rental chart as well.
The week ended Sept. 1 also saw Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War, from Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment, hold onto the No. 2 spot on both the NPD VideoScan First Alert sales chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc unit sales, and the dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart.
Three newcomers rounded out the top five on both charts.
Paramount’s Book Club debuted at No. 3 following a domestic box office haul of $68.6 million.
The comedy Tag, from Warner Bros., landed at No. 4 on both charts. It earned $54.5 million in U.S. theaters.
The thriller Upgrade, from Universal Pictures, bowed at No. 5 on both charts after earning $11.9 million at the domestic box office.
Blu-ray Disc accounted for 43% of first-week sales for Book Club, 47% for Tag and 66% for Upgrade.
On the Media Play News rental chart for the week ended Sept. 2, Deadpool 2 took over the top spot following the expiration of its week-long holdback from Redbox kiosks.
