With the slate of major new DVD and Blu-ray releases coming to a near standstill as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, Paramount’s Sonic the Hedgehog is running past the competition.
The video game adaptation spent its fifth consecutive week atop the NPD VideoScan First Alert chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc unit sales, the week ended June 20.
Sonic‘s four-week run atop the dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart came to an end, however, as it fell to No. 3 for the week. Warner’s Birds of Prey jumped back into the top spot there, up two spots from a week earlier.
Birds of Prey also moved up to No. 2 on the overall disc sales chart, selling about 96% as many copies as Sonic during the week.
Climbing five spots to No. 3 overall was Disney’s Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, which was the No. 2 Blu-ray seller.
The top newcomer was Warner’s Impractical Jokers: The Movie, at No. 17 overall. Blu-ray accounted for 48% of its total sales.
On the Media Play News rental chart for the week ended June 21, Universal’s The Hunt was the top title for the second consecutive week.
Universal’s The Invisible Man held steady at No. 2, with Impractical Jokers debuting at No. 3.
