The horror sequel A Quiet Place Part II debuts on DVD, Blu-ray, and 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray from Paramount Home Entertainment. The second installment, written and directed by John Krasinski, picks up where the first left off, as the Abbott family (Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds, Noah Jupe) must now face the terrors of the outside world as they continue their fight for survival in silence. Forced to venture into the unknown, they quickly realize that the creatures that hunt by sound are not the only threats that lurk beyond the sand path. It earned $157.5 million at the domestic box office.

Also arriving on DVD July 27 from Lionsgate is the family comedy Joey & Ella. When a baby kangaroo gets accidentally swept up in a jewelry heist, she becomes separated from her mother for the first time in her young life. The story begins when two bumbling jewel thieves lose a mysterious diamond when it is pocketed by a baby circus kangaroo that escapes to a nearby barn and is found by Ella (Jennifer Michele), a lonely teen who names the critter Joey. But the magical gem causes Joey to grow quickly and gain the power of speech.

Based on the popular novel by Neil Gaiman, the Starz fantasy series stars Ricky Whittle as Shadow Moon, Ian McShane as Mr. Wednesday, Emily Browning as Laura Moon, and Crispin Glover as Mr. World. In the 10 episodes of the third season, dangerous secrets intensify the inevitable war building between the Old Gods of mythology and the New Gods of technology. When Shadow Moon discovers that his boss, Mr. Wednesday, is not only one of the Old Gods but is also his father, Shadow attempts to break away and find his own path. Guided on this spiritual journey by the gods of his black ancestors, the Orishas, Shadow puts down roots in the idyllic, snowy town of Lakeside, Wisconsin — but this small town holds dark and bloody secrets that force him to accept his destiny. Rather than facing a choice between divinity or humanity, Shadow must now decide just what kind of god he wants to be.

‘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.

‘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.
