‘Jurassic World Dominion’ Roars to No. 1 on U.K. Home Entertainment Sales Chart

The packaged-media release of Universal Pictures Home Entertainment’s Jurassic World Dominion helped the sci-fi actioner move atop the Official Film Chart in the U.K. for the retail period ended Oct. 5.

Following its release on DVD, Blu-ray Disc and 4K UHD Blu-ray, Dominion follows in the rather large footsteps of its predecessor, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, which was the franchise’s first-ever Official Film Chart topper.

As a result of Dominion’s release on disc, the week’s top 20 featured two “Jurassic” boxed sets; Jurassic World: The Ultimate Collection (No. 10) and Jurassic World Trilogy (No. 19).

Meanwhile, the previous week’s chart-topping biopic Elvis (Warner Bros. Home Entertainment) slipped to No. 2, and Paramount Home Entertainment’s Top Gun: Maverick ranked No. 3.

Disney/Marvel’s Thor: Love and Thunder ascended two spots to a new peak of No. 4, entering the top 5 for the first time and landing just ahead of Universal Pictures Home Entertainment’s Downton Abbey: A New Era, which held strong at No. 5.

Universal’s horror thriller The Black Phone moved up one spot (No. 6) and Warner’s The Batman rebounded two spots to No. 7. Returning to the top 10 are former chart toppers, including Sony Pictures Home Entertainment’s Uncharted (No. 8), and Warner’s Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore in ninth.

Outside the top 10 for the week is a re-entry from Disney’s Hocus Pocus (No. 14) following the release of Hocus Pocus 2 on Disney+.
