Warner Bros. Home Entertainment’s Scoob! 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 July 25.
The CG-animated film based on the classic “Scooby-Doo” cartoon and other Hanna-Barbera characters had been slated for a theatrical release but due to the coronavirus pandemic was instead released through premium VOD, and was finally released on disc July 21.
The No. 2 seller on both charts, in its third week, was Universal Pictures’ Trolls World Tour. The DreamWorks Animation sequel had been the top disc seller the previous two weeks.
Another newcomer, Lionsgate’s Capone, debuted at No. 3 on the overall disc chart and No. 4 on the Blu-ray chart. The film from director Josh Trank stars Tom Hardy as legendary mobster Al Capone in the waning years of his life.
The No. 3 Blu-ray was Warner’s Batman Beyond: The Complete Series.
The No. 4 overall disc seller and No. 5 Blu-ray was Paramount’s Sonic the Hedgehog.
The No. 5 overall seller was Warner’s The Mule, followed by Paramount’s Top Gun at No. 6.
Other newcomers in the top 20 included Lionsgate’s Survive the Night at No. 7 on both charts, and Shout! Factory’s Resistance at No. 8 overall (No. 6 on the Blu-ray chart).
Criterion Collection’s Marriage Story, the disc release of the Oscar-winning Netflix movie, was No. 8 on the Blu-ray Disc sales chart.
Blu-ray Disc formats accounted for 46% of first-week Scoob! sales, compared with 48% for Capone, 45% for Survive the Night and 49% for Resistance. The 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray comprised 5% of total Scoob! sales.
Scoob! was also No. 1 on the Media Play News rental chart for the week ended July 26, with Survive the Night at No. 2. Trolls World Tour dropped to No. 3 after a couple of weeks in the top spot.
Redbox’s own Becky dropped two spots to No. 4, and Lionsgate’s Force of Nature slipped a spot to No. 5.
