‘Hunger Games’ Prequel and ‘The Marvels’ Take Over Top Spots on Disc Sales Charts

Lionsgate’s The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes debuted at No. 1 on the Circana VideoScan First Alert chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc unit sales, and the dedicated Blu-ray Disc chart the week ended Feb. 17.

The prequel to the earlier “Hunger Games” films earned more than $166 million at the domestic box office.

No. 2 on both charts was Disney’s The Marvels, which sold about 75% as many copies as the top seller. The latest entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe was a box office disappointment relative to previous franchise entries with just $84.5 million domestically. However, The Marvels did take the top spot on the 4K Ultra HD disc sellers chart, with Ballad at No. 2.

HD formats accounted for 71% of first-week Ballad sales, 48% from regular Blu-ray and 23% from 4K. The Marvels had 69% of its sales attributed to HD, with 32% from regular Blu-ray and 37% from 4K.

The top seller for three of the previous four weeks, Universal’s animated Trolls Band Together, dropped to No. 3 on the overall and Blu-ray charts in its fifth week, selling about 19% as many copies as the top newcomer. It was No. 18 on the 4K chart.

No. 4 on both the overall and Blu-ray charts was Universal’s Oppenheimer, which was also finally knocked off its perch atop the 4K charts after 12 weeks. In its 13th week, Oppenheimer fell to No. 6 on the 4K chart.

No. 5 on the overall disc sales chart was RLJ Entertainment’s The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon — Season 1, the latest spinoff of the “Walking Dead” franchise.

Planet Earth III was No. 7 on the Blu-ray chart and No. 4 on the 4K chart.

‘Trolls Band Together’ Returns to No. 1 Spot on Disc Sales Chart for Third Time in Four Weeks

Universal Pictures Home Entertainment’s Trolls Band Together returned to the top spot on the Circana VideoScan First Alert chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc unit sales, and the dedicated Blu-ray Disc chart the week ended Feb. 10.

It marks the third time in four weeks the DreamWorks Animation sequel has been the top disc seller. It would have been No. 1 all four weeks had the three-film “Trolls” collection not siphoned away enough sales from the standalone version to push it to No. 2 in its third week.

That three-disc set moved up two spots to No. 8 on the overall chart with a quarter of the sales of the standalone edition of Band Together, the franchise’s third film.

In a week without much in the way of new releases, Universal Pictures’ Oppenheimer climbed to No. 2 in its 12th week on shelves. However, it remained No. 1 on the dedicated 4K chart for a 12th consecutive week.

Trolls Band Together was No. 19 on the 4K chart.

The previous week’s top seller, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment’s Thanksgiving, slipped to No. 3 on the overall and Blu-ray charts.

Disney-owned Lucasfilm’s Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny remained No. 4 on the overall sales chart and rose a spot to No. 7 on the Blu-ray chart.

Rounding out the overall top five was Lionsgate’s The Expendables 4, which was No. 6 on the Blu-ray chart and No. 7 on the 4K chart.

On the Blu-ray chart, No. 4 was Lionsgate’s Silent Night (No. 15 overall), while No. 5 was Universal’s Five Nights at Freddy’s (No. 6 overall).

‘Thanksgiving’ Serves Up No. 1 Debut on Disc Sales Charts

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment’s Thanksgiving debuted at No. 1 on the Circana VideoScan First Alert chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc unit sales, and the dedicated Blu-ray Disc chart the week ended Feb. 3.

Director Eli Roth’s horror film, which is based upon his fake trailer of the same name from the 2007 film Grindhouse, follows a mysterious Thanksgiving-inspired killer who terrorizes Plymouth, Mass., following a Black Friday riot. The film earned $31.9 million at the domestic box office.

Blu-ray Disc accounted for 62% of first-week Thanksgiving sales. It was not released on 4K Ultra HD disc.

No. 2 on both charts was Universal Pictures Home Entertainment’s Trolls Band Together, which had been No. 1 the previous two weeks. However, it might have remained on top for a third week had more shoppers opted to buy it on its own than part of the “Trolls” three-movie collection, which was No. 10. Trolls Band Together sold 83% as many copies as the top title, while the three-pack sold 19.5%, which means discs containing Trolls Band Together outsold any other title by about 3%.

Dropping to No. 3 on the overall disc sales chart, and No. 4 on the Blu-ray chart, was Universal Pictures’ Oppenheimer, in its 11th week on shelves. However, it remained No. 1 on the dedicated 4K chart for an 11th consecutive week.

Trolls Band Together was No. 9 on the 4K chart.

Disney-owned Lucasfilm’s Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny remained No. 4 on the overall sales chart but fell to No. 8 on the Blu-ray chart.

Another newcomer, Lionsgate’s Silent Night, debuted at No. 5 overall and No. 3 on the Blu-ray chart (as it was released solely as a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack). The action-thriller stars Joel Kinnaman as a tormented father who sets out on a mission of vengeance when his son is killed in the crossfire of a gang shootout.
