‘Dune’ Tops Disc Sales Charts for Third Week

The new adaptation of Dune from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment spent a third week at 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 Jan. 29.

Identified onscreen as Dune: Part One, the film is directed by Denis Villeneuve and covers roughly the first half of the 1965 Frank Herbert novel upon which it is based. Dune tells the story of factions in a galactic empire in the far future warring over a desert planet that houses valuable resources. It earned $107.5 million at the domestic box office.

MGM’s No Time to Die rose two spots on both charts to No. 2. The latest James Bond actioner is distributed on disc by Universal Pictures Home Entertainment and earned $160.8 million at the domestic box office and sold about 93% as many copies as the top seller.

Universal’s Halloween Kills dropped a spot to No. 3 on both charts. The sequel to 2018’s Halloween earned $92 million at the domestic box office.

MGM’s The Addams Family 2, distributed on disc by Universal Pictures Home Entertainment, slipped to No. 4 on the overall disc sales chart and No. 6 on the Blu-ray chart. The animated sequel to 2018’s The Addams Family earned $56.5 million at the domestic box office.

The Marvel-inspired sequel Venom: Let There Be Carnage from Sony Pictures stayed No. 5 on the overall disc sales chart, and rose to No. 4 on the Blu-ray chart, in its seventh week on Blu-ray and DVD.

The No. 5 Blu-ray Disc seller was an older Marvel Comics adaptation, 2004’s The Punisher from Lionsgate. It was No. 7 on the overall disc chart, propelled upward due to an exclusive Best Buy 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Steelbook, as well as a relative lack of new titles during the week. The 2004 film based on the Marvel Comics vigilante character stars Thomas Jane as Frank Castle, who becomes The Punisher to seek revenge on the mafia boss (John Travolta) who murdered his family. The cast also includes Will Patton and Roy Scheider. The film was originally released on 4K in September 2018. For the week it had 99% of its unit sales come from Blu-ray Disc, with 91% from 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, 8% from regular Blu-ray, and less than 1% from legacy DVD.
