‘Ghostbusters: Afterlife’ Tops February Home Video Sales, Jumps to No. 1 for 2022

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment’s Ghostbusters: Afterlife was No. 1 on the top 10 list of home video sales for February 2022, according to the NPD Group’s VideoScan tracking service that compiles DVD, Blu-ray and digital transactions.

A continuation of the 1980s “Ghostbusters” films, Afterlife focuses on a family that moves to Oklahoma and discovers the legacy of the original Ghostbusters team. It was directed by Jason Reitman, son of the late Ivan Reitman, who directed the first two films and produced this continuation of the franchise (which ignores a 2016 remake). The elder Reitman died Feb. 12, not long after the film’s Feb. 1 release on Blu-ray and DVD. Afterlife was the top disc seller its first two weeks on shelves. A collection of the three Reitman “Ghostbusters” films was No. 7 for the month.

Afterlife‘s combined sales were enough to push it to No. 1 for the year to date, displacing January’s top seller, the new adaptation of Dune from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. The film from director Denis Villeneuve, identified onscreen as Dune: Part One, was No. 6 in February and slipped to No. 2 for the year to date.

The No. 2 seller in February was Disney’s Encanto, the 60th official feature release from the Walt Disney Animation Studio dating back to 1937. It was released on disc Feb. 8 and entered the year-t0-date chart at No. 4.

The month’s No. 3 title was another Disney release, Marvel Studios’ Eternals, the 26th entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The film tells the story of a group of superpowered aliens who have been guiding and protecting human civilization for thousands of years.

No. 4 in February was Paramount’s Clifford the Big Red Dog, released on disc Feb. 1. Adapted from the children’s book series of the same name, the film tells the story of a young girl who befriends an enormous red puppy.

Another February disc release, Sony Pictures’ Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City, was No. 5 for the month. The reboot of the horror franchise based on the popular video game series arrived on Blu-ray and DVD Feb. 8.

Universal Pictures’ Halloween Kills slipped three spots on the year-to-date chart to No. 5.

Eternals moved up to No. 6 on the year-to-date chart, while Clifford placed No. 8 and Resident Evil was No. 9.

‘Ghostbusters: Afterlife’ Remains Top Overall Disc Seller; ‘Encanto’ Tops Blu-ray Sales Chart

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment’s Ghostbusters: Afterlife remained No. 1 on the NPD VideoScan First Alert chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc unit sales, the week ended Feb. 12.

However, the “Ghostbusters” sequel dropped to No. 2 on the Blu-ray Disc chart, where Disney’s newest animated film, Encanto, debuted at No. 1.

Encanto, which earned $94 million at the domestic box office, was the No. 2 overall disc seller for the week, selling 95% as many copies as Afterlife. But because 60% of its unit sales were of its Blu-ray Disc editions (40% regular Blu-ray and 20% 4K Ultra HD), compared with 56% for Afterlife (44% regular, 12% UHD), Encanto edged out Afterlife on the Blu-ray Disc chart by 0.67%.

The No. 3 title on both charts was another newcomer, Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. The seventh “Resident Evil” film is a reboot of the film series based on the popular video game franchise of the same name. It earned $17 million at the domestic box office and sold about 56% as many copies as the top seller.

Paramount Home Entertainment’s Clifford the Big Red Dog slipped two spots to No. 4 on the overall disc sales chart, and was No. 5 on the Blu-ray chart.

The No. 5 overall disc seller, and No. 4 on the Blu-ray Disc sales chart, was Warner’s new adaptation of Dune.

Several other new releases managed to debut in the top 20 as well. Warner’s King Richard, a biopic about the father of Venus and Serena Williams and how he pushed them to become tennis superstars growing up, was No. 6 overall and No. 10 on the Blu-ray Disc chart. It had 43% of its sales come from HD formats (37% regular Blu-ray, 6% UHD).

No. 11 overall, and No. 6 on the Blu-ray Disc chart, was Warner’s latest animated book movie based on DC characters, Catwoman: Hunted, a crime caper about the Batman villain and love interest. Released only with Blu-ray options (Walmart didn’t offer its usual DVD-only exclusive for DC animated movies), it had 28% of its sales come from 4K Ultra HD discs.

The latest release from the Bruce Willis action-thriller factory, RLJ Entertainment’s Apex, debuted at No. 17. The film was the centerpiece of a recent Red Letter Media video exploring the recent slate of low-budget actioners touting Willis as a star despite his sometimes minimal involvement in the actual plot.

No. 19 on the overall disc sales chart was Stargirl: The Complete Second Season, the latest batch of episodes from the CW live-action superhero show that, like Catwoman: Hunted, also is based on DC Comics characters.

The Media Play News rental chart the week ended Feb. 13 had Ghostbusters: Afterlife in the top spot for a second week.

Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City and King Richard debuted as the No. 2 and No. 3 rentals, respectively.

‘Ghostbusters: Afterlife’ Scares Up Top Spot on Disc Sales Charts

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment’s Ghostbusters: Afterlife debuted at No. 1 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 Feb. 5.

Afterlife, director Jason Reitman’s follow-up to his father Ivan’s 1980s “Ghostbusters” films, earned $128.8 million at the domestic box office. It tells the story of a family that moves to Oklahoma and stumbles upon a connection to a member of the original Ghostbusters team.

A collection of all three of the Reitman “Ghostbusters” films (leaving out the 2016 remake) was No. 3 on the overall disc sales chart and No. 2 on the Blu-ray Disc chart.

The No. 2 overall disc seller, and No. 4 on the Blu-ray chart, was another newcomer, Paramount’s Clifford the Big Red Dog, a live-action adaptation of the children’s book series about the adventures of a giant dog. It earned $9 million at the domestic box office and sold about 24% as many copies as Afterlife.

The top disc seller the previous three weeks, Warner’s new adaptation of Dune from director Denis Villeneuve, slid to No. 4 on the overall chart and No. 3 on the Blu-ray Disc chart.

No. 5 on both charts was MGM’s latest James Bond actioner, No Time to Die, distributed on disc by Universal Pictures Home Entertainment, in its seventh week of availability on Blu-ray Disc and DVD.

Blu-ray Disc formats accounted for 65% of first-week Ghostbusters: Afterlife sales, with 19% from the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray version and 46% from the regular Blu-ray version. The three-movie collection had 47% of its sales come from a regular Blu-ray edition, and 23% from the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray combo Ultimate Collection set that included exclusive bonus material (and a fair share of supply and quality control headaches).

The Media Play News rental chart the week ended Feb. 6 also had Ghostbusters: Afterlife in the top spot, and Clifford the Big Red Dog at No. 2.

That pushed Dune, the top rental the previous three weeks, to No. 3.

Sony Pictures’ Venom: Let There Be Carnage slid to No. 4, while No. 5 went to MGM’s The Addams Family 2, which is distributed on disc by Universal.
