Warner Bros. Home Entertainment’s Joker was No. 1 on the top 10 list of combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc unit sales for January 2020 according to the NPD Group’s VideoScan tracking service.
The award-winning film based on the origins of the Batman villain debuted on disc on Jan. 7.
Disney’s Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, a Jan. 14 release, was No. 2 during the month.
Sony Pictures’ Zombieland: Double Tap landed at No. 3 for the month. It debuted Jan. 28.
Paramount’s Terminator: Dark Fate, which landed on disc Jan. 28, managed to take the month’s No. 4 spot.
The fact that the top four titles were the top sellers in their respective release weeks and ranked according to their release date is very indicative of how much a title’s first-week sales contribute to its lifetime total.
No. 5 for the month went to Paramount’s Gemini Man, a Jan. 14 release.
The month’s other big new release, MGM’s animated The Addams Family, distributed by Universal, was No. 6.
Universal had three titles in the month’s top 10, while Paramount and Sony Pictures each had two.
Holdovers from December included Lionsgate’s Rambo: Last Blood at No. 7, Sony Pictures’ Once Upon a Time in Hollywood at No. 8, Universal’s Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw at No. 9, and Universal’s animated Abominable was No. 10.
