Five new releases cracked the top 10 the week ended Nov. 17, but none could unseat Walt Disney Studios’ Incredibles 2 from the top spot on the home video sales charts.
The Pixar Animation Studios superhero sequel spent a second consecutive week at No. 1 on both the NPD VideoScan First Alert chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc unit sales, and the dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart.
Warner’s The Meg led the newcomers with a No. 2 debut on both charts, selling 76% as many copies in its first week as Incredibles 2 did in its second (and 55% as many Blu-rays). The giant-shark thriller earned $143 million at the domestic box office.
STX Entertainment’s Mile 22, an actioner distributed by Universal Studios Home Entertainment, debuted at No. 3 on both charts after a $36 million domestic box office haul.
Dropping to No. 4 on both charts was another Disney title, Christopher Robin.
Another newcomer, Sony Pictures’ historical adventure Alpha, debuted at No. 5 on the overall chart and at No. 10 on the Blu-ray chart.
The No. 5 Blu-ray was Disney’s Olaf’s Frozen Adventure, a Blu-ray-only release of the 2017 “Frozen” spinoff short (previously released digitally) paired with six vintage ice-themed Disney cartoons.
Another Disney movie, Marvel’s Ant-Man and The Wasp, was No. 6 on both charts.
The other new release to debut in the top 10 was Paramount’s DVD and Blu-ray release of CBS All Access’ Star Trek: Discovery — Season One, which was No. 7 on both charts.
Blu-ray Disc accounted for 50% of The Meg unit sales, 49% for Mile 22, 36% for Alpha and 56% for Star Trek: Discovery.
On the Media Play News rental chart for the week ended Nov. 18, The Meg debuted at No. 1, with Mile 22 at No. 2.
Incredibles 2 slipped to No. 3, with Alpha at No. 4 and Lionsgate’s The Spy Who Dumped Me at No. 5.
