Sony Pictures’ Spider-Man: No Way Home had no trouble keeping the No. 1 spot 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 April 23.
It’s the second consecutive week in the top spot for the Marvel Studios’ production, which arrived on disc April 12.
The collection of the three Marvel Cinematic Universe-set “Spider-Man” movies (2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming and 2019’s Spider-Man: Far From Home in addition to No Way Home) remained No. 2 on the Blu-ray Disc sales chart but slid to No. 4 on the overall disc sales chart.
For its second week, Blu-ray Disc formats accounted for 68% of total No Way Home unit sales, compared with 77% in week one. By format, 49% came from regular Blu-ray and 19% from 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, compared with 46% and 31% respectively a week earlier.
The week’s top newcomer, at No. 2 overall and No. 3 on the Blu-ray Disc chart, was Paramount’s Jackass Forever, the latest installment in the “Jackass” comedy stunt franchise, and fourth theatrical release under the main brand. It earned $57.7 million at the domestic box office. Jackass Forever sold about 12.6% as many copies in its first week as the standalone No Way Home did in its second.
Universal Pictures’ animated sequel Sing 2 dropped to No. 3 overall and No. 4 on the Blu-ray Disc chart.
Rounding out the top five the overall sales chart was Paramount’s Scream relaunch, which was No. 5 overall and No. 7 on the Blu-ray chart. The No. 5 Blu-ray was Lionsgate’s 2012 horror comedy The Cabin in the Woods, which climbed back up the charts thanks to a re-release on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray through a Best Buy-exclusive Steelbook edition (it was No. 9 overall and had 99% of its unit sales reported as being from a 4K format).
The Media Play News rental chart for the week ended April 24 again had Spider-Man: No Way Home at No. 1 and Sing 2 at No. 2. Jackass Forever debuted as the No. 3 rental.
Universal’s Marry Me remained No. 4, while Scream dropped two spots to No. 5.
