Disney’s Raya and the Last Dragon remained 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 June 12.
It’s the fourth week in the top spot for the animated fantasy, though a couple of new 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray catalog titles scrambled the top 10 a bit.
The No. 3 overall disc seller was Paramount’s June 8 re-release of its collection of the four “Indiana Jones” movies, headlined by a new 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray edition, which accounted for 91.6% of the boxed set’s total sales (8.1% were of the regular Blu-ray edition). Since nearly all the set’s sales were of Blu-ray formats, it was No. 2 on the Blu-ray Disc sales chart, where it sold 96.9% as many copies as top-selling Raya.
The No. 3 Blu-ray seller, and No. 6 overall, was Sony Pictures’ 2005 anime film Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children, newly released in a new 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray version that accounted for 98.7% of the title’s sales for the week.
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment’s live-action/animation hybrid Tom & Jerry remained the No. 2 overall disc seller for the fourth week in a row, though it slipped to No. 4 in Blu-ray Disc sales after three weeks as the runner-up on that chart.
Rounding out the overall top five were Paramount’s A Quiet Place at No. 4, and Lionsgate’s original John Wick at No. 5.
The Blu-ray chart No. 5 was Lionsgate’s Chaos Walking, which was No. 7 on the overall disc chart — down from the third ranking on both charts a week earlier.
The only other newcomer in the overall top 20 was Lionsgate’s City of Lies at No. 17, though it fared better on the Blu-ray chart at No. 8, with 58% of its total unit sales coming in the high-def format. Produced by Saban Films and based on the book LAbyrinth by Randall Sullivan, the film follows the investigation into the infamous murder of iconic rap artist Notorious B.I.G. Johnny Depp stars as a determined LAPD detective who teams up with a journalist (Forest Whitaker) in search of the truth.
On the Media Play News rental chart for the week ended June 13, City of Lies debuted at No. 1, pushing Tom & Jerry to No. 2. The Marksman remained No. 3.
The Redbox-exclusive thriller Rogue Hostage entered the rental chart at No. 4, while Raya and the Last Dragon slipped to No. 5.
