‘Daddy’s Home 2’ Takes Over Top Spots on Home Video Charts

Paramount’s Daddy’s Home 2 debuted at No. 1 on the NPD VideoScan First Alert sales chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc unit sales, and the dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart the week ended Feb. 24.

The comedy sequel earned $104 million at the domestic box office, and would have had a bigger lead on the charts were it not available separately as part of a two-pack with the first Daddy’s Home, a combo tracked separately by VideoScan.

Lionsgate’s Wonder dropped to No. 2 on both charts. In its second week on shelves, Wonder sold 98% of copies as the solo versions of Daddy’s Home 2 in its first week. When accounting for the two-pack, Wonder sold 86% as many copies as Daddy’s Home 2 overall.

No. 3 on both charts was Sony Pictures’ The Star, a faith-based animated comedy about the Nativity told from the point of view of the animals that were there. The film earned $40.9 million in U.S. theaters.

Rounding out the top five on the overall chart were Universal’s A Bad Moms Christmas at No. 4 and Warner’s It at No. 5. Their orders were reversed on the Blu-ray chart.

Blu-ray disc accounted for 53% of unit sales of Daddy’s Home 2 and 46% of The Star.

Daddy’s Home 2 was also the top title on the Media Play News rental chart for the week ended Feb. 25, again pushing Wonder to No. 2.

A Bad Moms Christmas slipped to No. 3, with The Star debuting at No. 4 and Warner’s Geostorm holding on at No. 5.
