Disney’s live-action remake of Mulan topped 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 Nov. 21.
It was the second consecutive week atop the charts for the film, which is based on the ancient Chinese folklore about a young woman who poses as a man to serve in the military in place of her elderly father.
The week’s top new release was The New Mutants, from Disney-owned 20th Century Studios, which debuted at No. 4 on the overall disc sales chart and No. 2 on the Blu-ray chart. It sold 57.6% as many copies as the No. 1 title. Blu-ray Disc formats accounted for 70% of its overall sales, with 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray comprising 25% of its total.
The final “X-Men” film from the Fox era, New Mutants deals with five teenagers who are trapped in an asylum while their budding powers are being evaluated, and attacked by a force that preys upon their fears. It earned $23.8 million at the domestic box office.
The only other newcomer in the top 20 was Lionsgate’s Unhinged, at No. 14 on the overall chart and No. 16 on the Blu-ray chart. It saw 47% of its total come from Blu-ray Disc. The film stars Russell Crowe as a man who stalks a woman after a road rage incident. It earned $20.8 million at U.S. theaters over the summer.
On the Media Play News rental chart for the week ended Nov. 22, Unhinged debuted at No. 1, pushing Mulan to No. 2. The New Mutants debuted at No. 3.
