‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ Tops Disc Sales in April, Takes Over No. 1 Spot Year-to-Date

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment’s Spider-Man: No Way Home was No. 1 on the top 10 list of physical-media sales for April 2022, according to the NPD Group’s VideoScan tracking service that compiles DVD and Blu-ray transactions.

The Marvel Studios production and third “Spider-Man” film to star Tom Holland was a box office blockbuster, earning $804 million at the domestic box office and more than $1.8 billion worldwide. It was released on disc April 12 and has been the top seller on the weekly disc sales chart in the four weeks since, including the final three weeks of April.

Spider-Man: No Way Home‘s dominance on home video also made it the top seller on disc for 2022 as a whole, pushing another Sony title, Ghostbusters: Afterlife to No. 2 for the year.

A collection of all three of Holland’s “Spider-Man” films was No. 5 for April.

Universal’s animated sequel Sing 2, a March 29 disc release that was No. 2 in March, was also No. 2 in April.

The No. 3 title in April was the April 5 DVD and Blu-ray release of Paramount’s Scream relaunch, which earned $81.6 million at the domestic box office.

Disney’s Encanto, a Feb. 8 disc release, continued to perform well in the home market, taking the No. 4 spot for April. The Oscar winner for Best Animated Feature had been in the same position in March.

Other newcomers on the April chart include the April 26 disc release of Lionsgate’s Moonfall at No. 6, and Disney-owned 20th Century Studios’ April 5 release of director Kenneth Branagh’s Agatha Christie adaptation Death on the Nile at No. 8.

The No. 1 seller for March, Paramount Home Entertainment’s DVD and Blu-ray release of Yellowstone: Season Four, dropped to No. 9 in April.

Paramount’s 2020 family hit Sonic the Hedgehog rose back to No. 10 in April as fans anticipated the theatrical release of its sequel.
