Warner Bros. Home Entertainment’s Ocean’s 8 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 Sept. 15.
The heist comedy, a female-driven spinoff of the “Ocean’s” trilogy with Sandra Bullock as the sister of George Clooney’s character, earned $139.4 million at the domestic box office.
Deadpool 2, which had been the top seller for the previous three weeks, slipped to No. 2 on both charts. The superhero comedy is distributed by 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment.
Disney’s Avengers: Infinity War, the runner-up to Deadpool 2 the previous three weeks, slid to No. 3 on both charts.
Disney’s Hocus Pocus slipped a spot to No. 4 on both charts. The 1993 film typically enjoys a sales spike in the fall lead-up to Halloween, aided this year by a new 25th anniversary Blu-ray.
Rounding out the top five on the overall sales chart was Warner’s The Big Bang Theory: The Complete Eleventh Season. The No. 5 Blu-ray seller was Lionsgate’s Hereditary.
Blu-ray Disc accounted for 50% of first-week Ocean’s 8 sales; 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray contributed 8% to the film’s unit sales total.
The Media Play News rental chart for the week ended Sept. 16 also saw Ocean’s 8 debut at No. 1, pushing Warner’s Tag to No. 2.
