‘Jurassic World Dominion’ Debuts Atop Disc Sales Charts

Universal Pictures Home Entertainment’s Jurassic World Dominion easily debuted at No. 1 on 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 Aug. 20.

A collection of all six “Jurassic” films was No. 5 on both charts.

The sixth film finds the casts of the original Jurassic Park trilogy and the sequels coming together to stop a corporation from using genetically engineered locusts in a world where dinosaurs once again roam free. It earned $374 million at the domestic box office. The home video editions of Jurassic World Dominion include an extended version of the film.

Blu-ray Disc formats accounted for 66% of standalone Jurassic World Dominion unit sales, with 20% from the 4K Ultra HD version and 46% from regular Blu-ray; the six-movie set saw 68% of its sales from HD formats (22% UHD, 46% BD).

The previous week’s top seller, Paramount’s Sonic the Hedgehog 2, slipped to No. 2 on both charts.
