‘Pacific Rim Uprising’ Continues Reign on Home Video Sales Charts

Universal Pictures’ Pacific Rim Uprising held onto the top spot on the national home video sales charts for a second consecutive week. The sci-fi action film about giant robots fighting giant monsters was No. 1 on both the NPD VideoScan First Alert sales chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc unit sales, and the dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart the week ended June 30.

Debuting at No. 2 on the overall sales chart was Lionsgate’s Acrimony, selling 86% as many copies in its first week as Pacific Rim Uprising in its second. The latest film from director Tyler Perry earned $43.6 million at the domestic box office and was No. 4 on the Blu-ray chart.

No. 3 on both charts was another Lionsgate release, the faith-based I Can Only Imagine.

No. 4 overall and No. 2 on the Blu-ray chart was Disney’s Marvel superhero blockbuster Black Panther.

Rounding out the top five on both charts was Warner’s Tomb Raider reboot.

The only other newcomer in the top 10 was Lionsgate’s Escape Plan 2: Hades, a direct-to-video sequel to the 2013 Sylvester Stallone starrer Escape Plan. It was No. 9 overall and No. 11 on the Blu-ray chart after having been released on Friday, June 29 — not a traditional Tuesday release and thus having fewer days in the market to hit the charts.

Blu-ray disc accounted for 30% of Acrimony sales and 46% for Escape Plan 2.

On the Media Play News rental chart for the week ended July 1, Tomb Raider maintained the top spot, with Acrimony debuting at No. 2.

Pacific Rim Uprising slipped a spot to No. 3, while Escape Plan 2 debuted at No. 4. Fox’s Death Wish remake held onto the No. 5 spot.
