Universal Pictures Home Entertainment’s Fast X debuted at No. 1 on the Circana VideoScan First Alert chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc unit sales, and the dedicated Blu-ray Disc chart the week ended Aug. 12.

The 11th “Fast & Furious” film and 10th in the main series focused on Vin Diesel’s Dom Toretto and his team of supercar drivers earned $146 million at the domestic box office.

HD formats accounted for 58% of total Fast X unit sales, with 40% from regular Blu-ray and 18% from 4K disc. Fast X was also No. 1 on the dedicated 4K disc chart.

No. 3 on both the overall and Blu-ray charts was the newly released “Yellowstone” prequel 1923: Season One from Paramount Home Entertainment. It had 26% of its first-week sales derive from Blu-ray units.
