‘Sonic’ Tops Disc Sales for Sixth Week; ‘Top Gun’ Flies to No. 2

Paramount’s Sonic the Hedgehog spent its sixth consecutive week atop the NPD VideoScan First Alert chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc unit sales, the week ended June 27. The video game adaptation also returned to No. 1 on the dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart.

The six weeks is the longest a title has topped overall disc sales since Frozen spent eight straight weeks at No. 1 in 2014.

The week’s No. 2 disc seller was Paramount’s Top Gun. The 1986 action movie was recently re-released by the studio on 4K Ultra HD disc, though the UHD version accounted for just 7% of the title’s sales. With 26% of its total sales coming from Blu-ray Disc, Top Gun was No. 16 on the Blu-ray chart. A sequel, Top Gun: Maverick, is slated to hit theaters later this year.

No. 3 on the overall sales list and No. 2 on the Blu-ray list was Disney’s Onward.

Universal’s 1917 held steady at No. 4 overall and climbed a spot to No. 3 on the Blu-ray list.

The No. 5 overall selling disc was Universal’s remake of The Invisible Man, which was No. 10 on the Blu-ray chart.

The No. 4 Blu-ray was Disney’s Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, which came in at No. 7 on the overall sales chart.

The No. 5 Blu-ray seller was Netflix’s first season of “Stranger Things,” which is available exclusively at Target. Copies of the season have been heavily discounted of late, with Target clearing them out at $3 each, which likely explains the recent spike in sales for the title.
