‘Morbius’ Remains No. 1 on DVD and Blu-ray Sales Charts

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment’s Morbius remained No. 1 for a second week 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 June 25.

The Marvel Comics adaptation barely managed to hold onto the top spot against a pair of new releases. No. 2 on both charts, selling about 94% as many copies as the top title, was Universal Pictures’ The Bad Guys.

The film from DreamWorks Animation is based on the Scholastic children’s graphic novels of the same name, and follows five infamous friends — Mr. Wolf, Mr. Snake, Mr. Piranha, Mr. Shark and Ms. Tarantula. After years of countless heists and being the world’s most-wanted villains, the gang is finally caught. Mr. Wolf brokers a deal to keep them out of prison and the Bad Guys set out to fool the world into believing they’ve gone good.

The No. 3 seller on both charts, with about 47% as many units sold as the top title, was Lionsgate’s The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, starring Nicolas Cage as a fictionalized version of himself who gets recruited by the CIA to infiltrate the criminal organization of a superfan.

No. 4 on both charts in its fifth week on shelves was Warner’s The Batman, followed at No. 5 by 1986’s Top Gun, from Paramount, still coasting off the theatrical success of its sequel.
