‘Mortal Kombat’ Battles to Top of Disc Sales Charts

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment’s Mortal Kombat 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 July 17.

The latest adaptation of the popular video game franchise earned $42.2 million at the domestic box office.

The success of the new version also buoyed a couple of collections of previous adaptations. A Walmart exclusive DVD three-pack of the new film with the 1995 original and its 1997 sequel, Mortal Kombat: Annihilation, debuted at No. 14, while an earlier collection of the 1995 and 1997 films plus 2011’s Mortal Kombat: Legacy was No. 15.

No. 2 on both the overall and Blu-ray sellers chart was another newcomer, MGM’s Wrath of Man, released on disc by Warner. The film, which stars Jason Statham as an armored truck guard who seeks revenge against a gang of thieves, earned $27.5 million at the domestic box office. It sold about 42% as many copies as Mortal Kombat.

The arrival of the newcomers pushed another Warner title, Godzilla vs. Kong, from the top spot it had been occupying the previous four weeks, down to No. 3 on both charts.

A third notable new release, Paramount’s The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run, debuted at No. 5 on the overall sales chart and No. 4 on the Blu-ray chart. The third “SpongeBob” movie earned $4.8 million from a limited domestic theatrical run that was upended by the pandemic, which led to the film being released primarily on the Paramount+ streaming service instead.

The No. 4 overall seller, and No. 12 on the Blu-ray chart, was the 1996 original Space Jam, still getting a bounce from the recent theatrical and HBO Max release of the new version.

Blu-ray Disc formats accounted for 67% of first-week Mortal Kombat sales, compared with 58% for Wrath of Man and 43% for Sponge on the Run. The 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray comprised 22% of total Mortal Kombat unit sales.

‘Wonder Woman 1984’ Topped Disc Sales for Month of May

‘Godzilla vs. Kong’ Tops Disc Sales Charts for Fourth Week

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment’s Godzilla vs. Kong remained No. 1 for a fourth consecutive week 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 July 10.

The monster movie faced little in the way of new competition during a week with a new-release slate marked mostly by catalog titles.

As such, the No. 2 overall disc seller, and No. 6 on the Blu-ray Disc chart, was Warner’s 1996 live-action/animation hybrid sports comedy Space Jam. With interest for the title already building in advance of the July 16 premiere of its sequel, Space Jam got a further boost with the July 6 release of a new 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray edition, which accounted for 21% of the title’s overall sales (the regular Blu-ray comprised an additional 5% of Space Jam unit sales).

Universal Pictures’ actioner Nobody slipped to No. 3 on the overall disc sales chart, but remained No. 2 on the Blu-ray Disc chart for a third week.

Disney’s animated fantasy Raya and the Last Dragon dropped a spot to No. 4 on the overall disc chart, but rose a spot to take No. 3 on the Blu-ray chart.

The No. 5 overall disc seller was Universal’s 1982 sci-fi classic E.T. — The Extra-Terrestrial, with 85% of its sales for the week coming from its legacy DVD edition.

The No. 4 Blu-ray Disc seller was Warner’s direct-to-video animated movie Batman: The Long Halloween — Part One, which was No. 7 on the overall disc sales chart.

The No. 5 Blu-ray was the action comedy Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, a 2010 cult hit that got a boost by a new 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray edition from Universal Pictures. It was No. 20 on the overall disc chart.

In fact, a number of catalog titles made their way into the Blu-ray top 10 thanks to new Blu-ray and 4K releases. New Criterion Collection editions of Memories of Murder (a 2003 movie from Oscar-winning director Bong Joon Ho released on Blu-ray in April), the 1975 Russian film Mirror, 1982’s Fast Times at Ridgemont High (a May Criterion release), 1938’s Bringing Up Baby and the World of Wong Kar Wai boxed set (released in March) were No. 7, No. 8, No. 9, No. 10 and No. 13, respectively, on the Blu-ray chart, likely owing to the annual Barnes & Noble Criterion sale that runs through Aug. 2.

A new 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray edition of the notorious 1986 comic book movie Howard the Duck, from Universal, pushed that film to No. 11 on the Blu-ray chart.

On the Media Play News rental chart for the week ended July 11, Nobody took No. 1 and Godzilla vs. Kong was No. 2 for a third straight week.

Universal’s The Marksman rose two spots to No. 3, followed by Warner’s Tom & Jerry at No. 4 and the Redbox-exclusive Lansky at No. 5.

‘Godzilla vs. Kong,’ ‘Nobody’ Remain Atop Disc Sales Charts

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment’s Godzilla vs. Kong stayed No. 1 on the national physical media sales charts for a third consecutive week, taking the top spot 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 July 3.

No. 2 for a second week was Universal Pictures’ Nobody, the actioner from the “John Wick” creative team starring Bob Odenkirk. It sold about 54% as many copies as Godzilla vs. Kong during the week.

The titles held firm atop the charts mainly due to a lack of notable new releases during the week, resulting in a number of catalog titles dominating the top 20.

For instance, Warner’s 1996 animation/live-action sports comedy Space Jam climbed back to No. 4 in anticipation of the July 16 release of its sequel, Space Jam: A New Legacy, in theaters and on HBO Max.

And 1971’s Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, also from Warner, rose to No. 6 on the Blu-ray Disc chart (No. 22 overall) thanks to a new 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray re-release to mark the film’s 50th anniversary, which accounted for 78% of the titles total unit sales.

The No. 3 overall disc seller, and No. 4 on the Blu-ray chart, was Disney’s Raya and the Last Dragon.

Warner’s direct-to-video animated movie Batman: The Long Halloween — Part One dropped to No. 5 on the overall chart but stayed No. 3 on the Blu-ray chart.

‘Godzilla vs. Kong’ Tops Disc Sales Charts for Second Week; ‘Nobody’ Debuts at No. 2

Warner Bros. Home Entertainments’ Godzilla vs. Kong continued its reign on the national physical media sales charts for a second consecutive week, taking 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 June 26.

The week’s top newcomer, at No. 2 on both charts, was Universal Pictures Home Entertainment’s Nobody. The actioner from the “John Wick” creative team stars Bob Odenkirk as an unassuming family man with a dangerous secret past life that resurfaces when he seeks an outlet for his rage after his house is robbed. It earned $27 million at the domestic box office. Blu-ray Disc formats accounted for 65% of total Nobody disc unit sales — 17% from the 4K edition and 48% from the regular Blu-ray combo pack.

Another newcomer debuting high on the chart was Warner’s Batman: The Long Halloween — Part One, a direct-to-video animated adaptation of the same-named 1990s comic book storyline. It was No. 4 on the overall disc sales chart but No. 3 on the Blu-ray chart. About 15% of the title’s sales were from a Walmart-exclusive DVD edition.

The No. 3 overall disc seller, and No. 4 on the Blu-ray chart, was Warner’s eight-movie “Harry Potter” collection that has been floating around a few years and proved particular popular during the pandemic due to its ready availability as a retail sale item.

No. 5 on both charts was Universal’s Fast & Furious 8-Movie Collection, containing the eight franchise films through 2017’s Fate of the Furious. Fans no doubt picked up the set to prepare for the theatrical release of the latest installment, F9: The Fast Saga.

The only other new release in the top 20 was Sony Pictures Home Entertainment’s The Unholy, a horror movie that earned $15.5 million at the domestic box office. It was No. 8 overall and No. 7 on the Blu-ray chart.

‘Godzilla vs. Kong’ Stomps to Top Spot on Disc Sales Charts

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment’s Godzilla vs. Kong easily 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 June 19.

Given the scarcity of major new disc releases the past few weeks, the monster showdown, which earned $100.1 million at the domestic box office, sold nearly 10 times as many copies as its nearest competitor.

The Godzilla/Kong dominance was actually more pronounced considering a three-movie collection grouping Godzilla vs. Kong with franchise predecessors Godzilla: King of the Monsters and Kong: Skull Island debuted at No. 4 on the overall disc chart and No. 5 on the Blu-ray chart. About 54% of the 3-pack’s sales came from an exclusive DVD edition available at Walmart.

No. 3 overall and No. 2 on the Blu-ray chart was a release from earlier in the year making a surge, Warner’s Wonder Woman 1984.

The No. 5 overall disc seller (No. 7 on the Blu-ray chart) was Warner’s live-action/animation hybrid family comedy Tom & Jerry.

The No. 4 Blu-ray seller was Paramount’s 4K-led Indiana Jones 4-Movie Collection, which slid to No. 9 on the overall disc sales chart.

The only other newcomer in the top 20 for the week was Lionsgate’s sci-fi drama Voyagers, which debuted at No. 7 overall and No. 8 on the Blu-ray chart.

The Media Play News rental chart for the week ended June 20 had Godzilla vs. Kong at No. 1, pushing Lionsgate’s City of Lies to No. 2.

Disney’s Raya and the Last Dragon remained 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 June 12.

It’s the fourth week in the top spot for the animated fantasy, though a couple of new 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray catalog titles scrambled the top 10 a bit.

The No. 3 overall disc seller was Paramount’s June 8 re-release of its collection of the four “Indiana Jones” movies, headlined by a new 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray edition, which accounted for 91.6% of the boxed set’s total sales (8.1% were of the regular Blu-ray edition). Since nearly all the set’s sales were of Blu-ray formats, it was No. 2 on the Blu-ray Disc sales chart, where it sold 96.9% as many copies as top-selling Raya.

The No. 3 Blu-ray seller, and No. 6 overall, was Sony Pictures’ 2005 anime film Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children, newly released in a new 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray version that accounted for 98.7% of the title’s sales for the week.

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment’s live-action/animation hybrid Tom & Jerry remained the No. 2 overall disc seller for the fourth week in a row, though it slipped to No. 4 in Blu-ray Disc sales after three weeks as the runner-up on that chart.

‘Raya and the Last Dragon’ Takes No. 1 Disc Sales Spot in May, No. 3 for the Year

Disney’s Raya and the Last Dragon was No. 1 on the top 10 list of combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc unit sales for May 2021 according to the NPD Group’s VideoScan tracking service. The animated fantasy had been the top weekly seller the final two weeks of the month, which was enough to push it to N0. 3 on the list of top sellers for the entire year.

The No. 2 seller in May was Warner’s live-action/animation hybrid Tom & Jerry, which came out on disc the same day as Raya and was the runner-up to it on the weekly charts.

The No. 3 and No. 4 sellers were also released on disc in May. No. 3 was Universal’s The Marksman, a Liam Neeson actioner released May 11, while No. 4 was Warner’s crime drama The Little Things.

The April top seller, Warner’s Wonder Woman 1984, dropped to No. 5 for May. Another new release to heavily feature the Wonder Woman character, the animated superhero movie Justice Society: World War II, also from Warner, was the No. 6 May seller.

Paramount’s 2018 thriller A Quiet Place jumped to No. 9 in May, up from No. 103 in April, thanks to fans preparing for the sequel that hit theaters May 28.

The arrival of Raya shuffled the top 10 titles on the year-to-date chart a bit, though the top two titles remained the same, with Universal’s The Croods: A New Age maintaining the top spot, and Wonder Woman 1984 at No. 2.

Sony Pictures’ Monster Hunter slipped one spot to No. 4, while Disney’s Soul dropped two spots to No. 6.

In between them, taking over the year’s No. 5 spot, was the faith-based I Can Only Imagine, a catalog title released by Lionsgate in 2018. Its appearance in the annual top 10 is a bit of a surprise given it hasn’t been in the top 10 sellers for any month of the year.

Accordingly, Universal’s News of the World and Greenland also slid two spots each, to No. 7 and No. 8, respectively. Warner’s Justice League dropped one spot to No. 9, while Warner’s The Meg remained No. 10.

The new arrivals pushed Paramount’s Love and Monsters and Warner’s Tenet off the year’s top 10 list.
