‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ Remains No. 1 Disc Seller

Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi easily held onto the top spot on the national home video sales charts the week ended April 7.

In staying No. 1 for a second consecutive week, the latest “Star Wars” sequel outsold the week’s No. 2 title, Sony Pictures’ Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, by about a three-to-one margin on the NPD VideoScan First Alert sales chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc unit sales.

On the dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart, Last Jedi had about four times as many unit sales as Jumanji, which is in its third week.

Jumanji‘s lingering theatrical run managed to push its U.S. box office haul to over $403.7 million, passing the first Spider-Man to become the top Sony Pictures earner on the domestic list.

No. 3 on both the overall and Blu-ray disc sales charts was another Disney release, Marvel Studios’ Thor: Ragnarok, which is in its fifth week of release. No. 4 on both charts went to Warner’s Justice League, in its fourth week.

The top newcomer for the week, Sony Pictures’ Insidious: The Last Key, debuted at No. 5 overall and No. 6 on the Blu-ray chart. The fourth entry in the “Insidious” horror franchise earned $67 million at the domestic box office.

The No. 5 Blu-ray was Disney’s Coco, which landed at No. 6 on the overall disc sales chart.

The only other newcomer in the top 10 was Warner’s Father Figures, which debuted at No. 9 on both charts. The comedy earned $17.5 million at the domestic box office.

On the Media Play News rental chart for the week ended April 8, Jumanji held onto the top spot for a third consecutive week.

Father Figures debuted at No. 2, with Last Jedi moving up a spot to No. 3.

Rounding out the top five were Justice League at No. 4 and Insidious: The Last Key at No. 5.
