‘Incredibles 2’ Holds Off ‘The Meg’ to Repeat as Top Disc Seller

Five new releases cracked the top 10 the week ended Nov. 17, but none could unseat Walt Disney Studios’ Incredibles 2 from the top spot on the home video sales charts.

The Pixar Animation Studios superhero sequel spent a second consecutive week at No. 1 on both the NPD VideoScan First Alert chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc unit sales, and the dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart.

Warner’s The Meg led the newcomers with a No. 2 debut on both charts, selling 76% as many copies in its first week as Incredibles 2 did in its second (and 55% as many Blu-rays). The giant-shark thriller earned $143 million at the domestic box office.

STX Entertainment’s Mile 22, an actioner distributed by Universal Studios Home Entertainment, debuted at No. 3 on both charts after a $36 million domestic box office haul.

Dropping to No. 4 on both charts was another Disney title, Christopher Robin.

Another newcomer, Sony Pictures’ historical adventure Alpha, debuted at No. 5 on the overall chart and at No. 10 on the Blu-ray chart.

The No. 5 Blu-ray was Disney’s Olaf’s Frozen Adventure, a Blu-ray-only release of the 2017 “Frozen” spinoff short (previously released digitally) paired with six vintage ice-themed Disney cartoons.

Another Disney movie, Marvel’s Ant-Man and The Wasp, was No. 6 on both charts.

The other new release to debut in the top 10 was Paramount’s DVD and Blu-ray release of CBS All Access’ Star Trek: Discovery — Season One, which was No. 7 on both charts.

Blu-ray Disc accounted for 50% of The Meg unit sales, 49% for Mile 22, 36% for Alpha and 56% for Star Trek: Discovery.

On the Media Play News rental chart for the week ended Nov. 18, The Meg debuted at No. 1, with Mile 22 at No. 2.

Incredibles 2 slipped to No. 3, with Alpha at No. 4 and Lionsgate’s The Spy Who Dumped Me at No. 5.
