‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ Tops Disc Sales in April, Takes Over No. 1 Spot Year-to-Date

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment’s Spider-Man: No Way Home was No. 1 on the top 10 list of physical-media sales for April 2022, according to the NPD Group’s VideoScan tracking service that compiles DVD and Blu-ray transactions.

The Marvel Studios production and third “Spider-Man” film to star Tom Holland was a box office blockbuster, earning $804 million at the domestic box office and more than $1.8 billion worldwide. It was released on disc April 12 and has been the top seller on the weekly disc sales chart in the four weeks since, including the final three weeks of April.

Spider-Man: No Way Home‘s dominance on home video also made it the top seller on disc for 2022 as a whole, pushing another Sony title, Ghostbusters: Afterlife to No. 2 for the year.

A collection of all three of Holland’s “Spider-Man” films was No. 5 for April.

Universal’s animated sequel Sing 2, a March 29 disc release that was No. 2 in March, was also No. 2 in April.

The No. 3 title in April was the April 5 DVD and Blu-ray release of Paramount’s Scream relaunch, which earned $81.6 million at the domestic box office.

Disney’s Encanto, a Feb. 8 disc release, continued to perform well in the home market, taking the No. 4 spot for April. The Oscar winner for Best Animated Feature had been in the same position in March.

Other newcomers on the April chart include the April 26 disc release of Lionsgate’s Moonfall at No. 6, and Disney-owned 20th Century Studios’ April 5 release of director Kenneth Branagh’s Agatha Christie adaptation Death on the Nile at No. 8.

The No. 1 seller for March, Paramount Home Entertainment’s DVD and Blu-ray release of Yellowstone: Season Four, dropped to No. 9 in April.

Paramount’s 2020 family hit Sonic the Hedgehog rose back to No. 10 in April as fans anticipated the theatrical release of its sequel.

On the year-do-date chart, with Spider-Man: No Way Home pushing Ghostbusters: Afterlife down a spot, Warner’s Dune remake similarly slipped to No. 3, while Encanto dropped to No. 4.

Sing 2‘s April  performance helped it rise four spots on the 2022 chart, to No. 5 for the year so far.

Season four of “Yellowstone” dropped to No. 6 on the yearly chart, while MGM’s No Time to Die, the latest James Bond actioner distributed on DVD and Blu-ray by Universal Pictures Home Entertainment, slid to No. 7, Disney-owned Marvel Studios’ Eternals fell to No. 8, Universal’s Halloween Kills dropped to No. 9, and Sony Pictures’ Venom: Let There Be Carnage fell to No. 10.

‘Yellowstone’ Tops March Disc Sales; ‘Ghostbusters: Afterlife’ Still No. 1 for 2022

‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ Tops Disc Sales Charts for Fourth Week; ‘Turning Red’ Debuts at No. 2

Sony Pictures’ Spider-Man: No Way Home 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 May 7.

With its fourth-consecutive week atop the disc sales charts, Spider-Man: No Way Home is also the top disc seller for the year to date.

The collection of the three Marvel Cinematic Universe-set “Spider-Man” movies (2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming and 2019’s Spider-Man: Far From Home in addition to No Way Home) remained No. 4 on the Blu-ray Disc sales chart and No. 6 on the overall disc sales chart.

The week’s top newcomer at No. 2 on both charts was Disney’s Turning Red, the latest animated movie from Pixar. It sold about 44% as many copies in its first week as No Way Home did in its fourth. Turning Red bypassed theaters and was originally released via the Disney+ streaming service. It had 58% of its sales come from HD formats, with 35% regular Blu-ray and 23% 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray.

Lionsgate’s sci-fi disaster movie Moonfall, the latest directorial effort from Roland Emmerich, fell to No. 3 on both charts. The Walmart-exclusive two-pack of Moonfall with the 2009 Nicolas Cage movie Knowing was No. 12 on the overall disc chart and No. 8 on the Blu-ray Disc chart. Combined sales of the standalone Moonfall and the two-pack did outpace Turning Red, meaning more people purchased a copy of the sci-fi movie during the week than the new Pixar effort. Turning Red did barely edge out the combined Moonfall total on the Blu-ray chart.

Another newcomer, Universal Pictures’ Blacklight, debuted at No. 4 on the overall disc sellers chart and No. 5 on the Blu-ray Disc chart. The film stars Liam Neeson as a troubled off-the-books agent for the Federal Bureau of Investigation who finds himself in the middle of a deadly conspiracy. It earned $9.6 million at the domestic box office and had 40% of its unit sales come from its Blu-ray Disc edition.

‘Spider-Man’ Explodes Sony Pictures Home Entertainment Q4 Revenue

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment May 10 reported fourth-quarter (ended March 31) revenue of $322 million, which was up 131% from revenue of $139 million during the previous-year period. The revenue uptick was primarily driven by the March 15 digital release of box office blockbuster Spider-Man: No Way Home across all online retail channels. The 2021 box office champion was not released on Blu-ray Disc and DVD until April 12.

For the fiscal year, home entertainment revenue topped $764 million, which was down less than 2% from revenue of $778 million in the prior fiscal year.

Fiscal-year theatrical revenue of more than $1.5 billion skyrocketed from revenue of just $53 million in fiscal year 2020 primarily due to the contribution of Spider-Man: No Way Home and other theatrical releases, as well as higher licensing revenue from digital streaming services for new film titles and higher licensing revenue for catalog product. These increases were partially offset by lower home entertainment and licensing revenue generated from prior year releases, due to the absence of significant theatrical releases in the previous fiscal year.

Indeed, in addition to the timing of the No Way Home packaged-media release, SPHE had just seven 2020 theatrical releases to market in 2021, led by Monster Hunters with a total box office of $38 million. In the FY 2021, Sony released 14 theatrical titles.

Television production revenue increased 27% to more than $1.98 billion from $1.56 billion primarily due to the recording of revenue from the licensing of “Seinfeld” as well as an increase in deliveries of current year titles, as the previous fiscal year was negatively impacted by production delays due to COVID-19. Media Networks revenue for the fiscal year increased 30% to $2.6 billion from $2 billion primarily due to the impact of the acquisition of Crunchyroll.

‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ Tops Disc Sales Charts for Third Week; ‘Moonfall’ Debuts at No. 2

Sony Pictures’ Spider-Man: No Way Home remained No. 1 for a third-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 April 30.

The collection of the three Marvel Cinematic Universe-set “Spider-Man” movies (2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming and 2019’s Spider-Man: Far From Home in addition to No Way Home) dropped to No. 4 on the Blu-ray Disc sales chart and No. 6 on the overall disc sales chart.

The week’s top newcomer at No. 2 on both charts was Lionsgate’s sci-fi disaster movie Moonfall, the latest directorial effort from Roland Emmerich. The film about retired astronauts teaming with a conspiracy theorist to stop the moon from crashing into Earth earned $19 million. A Walmart-exclusive two-pack of Moonfall with the 2009 Nicolas Cage movie Knowing was No. 3 on the Blu-ray Disc chart and No. 5 on the overall disc chart.

Blu-ray Disc formats accounted for 58% of standalone Moonfall sales, with 22% from regular Blu-ray and 36% from 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray.
