Paramount Home Media Distribution’s Mission: Impossible — Fallout 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 Dec. 8.
The action sequel, sixth in the “Mission: Impossible” franchise, earned $220 million at the domestic box office.
Disney’s Incredibles 2 slipped to No. 2 on both charts after spending three of the previous four weeks in the top spot, selling 36% as many copies as Fallout.
Another newcomer, Warner’s The Nun, bowed at No. 3 on both charts. The horror movie, a spinoff of The Conjuring 2, earned $117 million at U.S. theaters.
Avengers: Infinity War came in at No. 4 on both charts, no doubt boosted by the Dec. 7 debut of the trailer to its 2019 sequel, Avengers: Endgame.
National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, from Warner, jumped to No. 5 on the overall sales chart. Universal’s The Happytime Murders debuted as the No. 5 seller on the Blu-ray chart (and No. 8 on the overall chart).
Blu-ray Disc accounted for 75% of Fallout unit sales, but just 47% for The Nun and 56% for The Happytime Murders. The 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray edition made up 21% of Fallout‘s total sales haul, compared with 5% for The Nun.
On the Media Play News rental chart for the week ended Dec. 9, Mission: Impossible — Fallout took the top spot, with The Nun at No. 2 and The Happytime Murders at No. 3.
Warner’s Crazy Rich Asians, the top rental the previous two weeks, slipped to No. 4. Universal’s Mile 22 rounded out the top five.
