The Disney animated hit Frozen II dominated home video sales the week ended Feb. 29, topping both NPD VideoScan’s First Alert chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc unit sales, and the dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart.
The sequel to 2013’s Frozen earned $477.1 million at the domestic box office and $1.45 billion worldwide, making it the highest-grossing non-photorealistic animated film of all time. The first film spent nine weeks as the No. 1 seller when it hit disc in 2014, including eight consecutive weeks upon its debut.
Lionsgate’s Knives Out debuted at No. 2, selling about 14% as many copies as Frozen II. The murder mystery from writer-director Rian Johnson earned $164.8 million at the domestic box office.
The previous week’s top seller, the war film Midway from Lionsgate, slipped to No. 3 on both charts in its second week.
Also in its second week, the Mr. Rogers docudrama A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood fell to No. 4 on both charts.
No. 5 on both charts was the racing drama Ford v Ferrari, from Disney-owned 20th Century Fox.
Blu-ray Disc formats accounted for 78% of total unit sales for Frozen II, with 9% of its overall tally coming from the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray edition. For Knives Out, 66% of its total came from Blu-ray, with 17% of its total from 4K Ultra HD.
