Sony Pictures Home Entertainment’s Thanksgiving debuted at No. 1 on the Circana VideoScan First Alert chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc unit sales, and the dedicated Blu-ray Disc chart the week ended Feb. 3.
Director Eli Roth’s horror film, which is based upon his fake trailer of the same name from the 2007 film Grindhouse, follows a mysterious Thanksgiving-inspired killer who terrorizes Plymouth, Mass., following a Black Friday riot. The film earned $31.9 million at the domestic box office.
Blu-ray Disc accounted for 62% of first-week Thanksgiving sales. It was not released on 4K Ultra HD disc.
No. 2 on both charts was Universal Pictures Home Entertainment’s Trolls Band Together, which had been No. 1 the previous two weeks. However, it might have remained on top for a third week had more shoppers opted to buy it on its own than part of the “Trolls” three-movie collection, which was No. 10. Trolls Band Together sold 83% as many copies as the top title, while the three-pack sold 19.5%, which means discs containing Trolls Band Together outsold any other title by about 3%.
Dropping to No. 3 on the overall disc sales chart, and No. 4 on the Blu-ray chart, was Universal Pictures’ Oppenheimer, in its 11th week on shelves. However, it remained No. 1 on the dedicated 4K chart for an 11th consecutive week.
Trolls Band Together was No. 9 on the 4K chart.
Disney-owned Lucasfilm’s Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny remained No. 4 on the overall sales chart but fell to No.8 on the Blu-ray chart.
Another newcomer, Lionsgate’s Silent Night, debuted at No. 5 overall and No. 3 on the Blu-ray chart (as it was released solely as a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack). The action-thriller stars Joel Kinnaman as a tormented father who sets out on a mission of vengeance when his son is killed in the crossfire of a gang shootout.
