‘Joker’ Dances to Top Spot on Disc Sales Charts

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment’s Joker easily topped 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. 11.

The gritty comic book film, which is based on the enigmatic Batman villain, brought in $334.1 million from the domestic box office and more than $1 billion worldwide. It recently earned 11 Oscar nominations, the most of any film in the 2019 field.

The film outsold the No. 2 title, Lionsgate’s Rambo: Last Blood, by a nearly 10-to-1 margin overall, and nearly 15-to-1 on the Blu-ray chart.

Another newcomer, Lionsgate’s critically acclaimed black-and-white drama The Lighthouse, debuted at No. 3 on both charts, coming in barely behind the “Rambo” sequel on the Blu-ray chart.

No. 4 on both charts was Sony Pictures’ Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

DreamWorks Animation’s Abominable, distributed by Universal Pictures, came in at No. 5 on both charts.
