‘Luca’ Tops Disc Sales for Second Week; ‘Batman’ Leads Blu-ray Sales

Disney’s Luca remained No. 1 for a second consecutive week on the NPD VideoScan First Alert chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc unit sales, the week ended Aug. 14. In its second week on disc, the Pixar animated movie fell to No. 2 on the dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart.

The top Blu-ray Disc seller, and No. 2 on the overall disc sales chart, was the newly released Batman: The Long Halloween — Part Two, a direct-to-video animated superhero movie from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. Blu-ray disc accounted for 85% of the new “Batman” movie, an adaptation of a 1990s comic book storyline; the first part hit Blu-ray in June.

No. 3 on both charts was Paramount’s A Quiet Place Part II, down a spot from the previous week.

The No. 4 overall disc seller, and No. 17 on the Blu-ray Disc chart, was Warner’s 1996 sports comedy Space Jam.
