‘Fifty Shades Freed’ Debuts Atop Home Video Charts

Universal Pictures’ Fifty Shades Freed debuted at No. 1 on the NPD VideoScan First Alert sales chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc unit sales, as well as the dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart the week ended May 12.

The concluding chapter of the sexually charged “Fifty Shades” trilogy earned $100.41 million at the domestic box office. A three-disc set of all three films landed at No. 12 on the overall sales chart.

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment’s Peter Rabbit slipped to No. 2 on both charts after debuting in the top spot a week earlier. The live-action/CG-animation hybrid family comedy sold 29% as many copies in its second week as Fifty Shades Freed did in its first.

No. 3 on both charts, in its fifth week in stores, was 20th Century Fox’s The Greatest Showman.

No. 4 on the overall sales chart was Warner’s 12 Strong, which slipped to No. 6 on the Blu-ray chart.

Debuting at No. 5 overall and No. 4 on the Blu-ray chart was Warner’s Batman Ninja, a direct-to-video anime adaptation of the classic superhero produced by the studio’s Japanese division.

The No. 4 Blu-ray, in its seventh week, was Walt Disney Studios’ Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

The Blu-ray Disc format accounted for 59% of Fifty Shades Freed unit sales, and 83% for Batman Ninja.

Fifty Shades Freed was also No. 1 on the Media Play News rental chart for the week ended May 13, pushing 12 Strong to No. 2.
