‘Last Jedi’ Takes Over Top Sellers for 2018; ‘Greatest Showman’ Leads April Disc Sales

The list of top sellers for 2018 shuffled a bit as the NPD Group announced VideoScan’s list of the combined Blu-ray Disc and DVD top sellers for April.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi, released toward the end of March, took over the top spot for the year through the first four months, pushing Coco to No. 2. Both films are distributed by Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment.

For the month of April, Last Jedi was the No. 2 seller, just as it was in March, as its late-March disc release divided the bulk of its early sales between the two months. The top spot in April went to 20th Century Fox’s The Greatest Showman, an April 10 disc release.

Fox’s Maze Runner: The Death Cure, released April 24, was the No. 3 seller for the month.

Sony Pictures’ Peter Rabbit, a May 1 disc release, landed as the No. 4 seller for April, likely owing to strong presales for the family film.

According to NPD, the April 2018 top 10 by units sold were:

  1. The Greatest Showman (Fox)
  2. Star Wars: The Last Jedi (Disney)
  3. Maze Runner: The Death Cure (Fox)
  4. Peter Rabbit (Sony Pictures)
  5. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (Sony Pictures)
  6. Thor: Ragnarok (Disney)
  7. The Commuter (Lionsgate)
