Warner Bros. Home Entertainment’s Scoob! again took the top spot on the NPD VideoScan First Alert chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc unit sales, the week ended Aug. 15.
That marks the fourth consecutive week the CG-animated film based on the classic “Scooby-Doo” cartoon and other Hanna-Barbera characters has been the top disc seller in the United States.
However, its reign as the top Blu-ray Disc seller ended at three weeks, as Universal Pictures’ Trolls World Tour, in its sixth week on disc, climbed back to No. 1 on the dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart. It stayed at No. 2 on the overall chart.
Scoob! dropped to No. 2 on the Blu-ray chart.
The No. 3 overall disc seller, moving up a spot from the previous week, was Nickelodeon’s animated Paw Patrol: Dino Rescue, distributed by Paramount.
Warner’s direct-to-video thriller Deep Blue Sea 3, which doesn’t arrive on disc until Aug. 25 but is available early for sale at Walmart, was No. 11.
The week’s top new release, at No. 38 overall, was Universal’s The High Note.
The Media Play News rental chart for the week ended Aug. 16 had Scoob! on top for a fourth consecutive week, with You Should Have Left repeating at No. 2. Deep Blue Sea 3, which is available on disc early as a Redbox kiosk rental, was again No. 3.
Newcomer The Wretched, an indie horror sleeper hit from IFC, debuted at No. 4, while Trolls World Tour was No. 5.
