Universal Pictures’ Jurassic World Dominion rose to No. 1 on the top 10 list of physical-media sales for August 2022, according to the NPD Group’s VideoScan tracking service that compiles DVD and Blu-ray transactions. The sixth “Jurassic” film was released to disc Aug. 16 and spent three weeks atop the weekly sales charts.

The No. 2 seller for August was Paramount’s video game adaptation Sonic the Hedgehog 2, released on disc Aug. 9.

The July top seller, Disney-owned Marvel Studios’ Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, dropped to No. 3 for August.

Paramount’s romantic-comedy adventure The Lost City, with Sandra Bullock, was No. 4 in August, a spot higher than its July ranking.

The No. 5 August seller was Warner’s Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore, which had been No. 2 in July.

Universal Pictures’ The Black Phone, another Aug. 16 disc release, was No. 6 on the August chart. The film stars Ethan Hawke and is about a kidnapped child who can communicate with previous victims over a strange phone.
