‘WW84’ Still Atop Disc Sales Charts After Fourth Week

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment’s Wonder Woman 1984 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 April 24.

Returning to the No. 2 spot on both charts for the first time since its first week of release was Universal Pictures’ News of the World. The Tom Hanks-starring Western debuted at No. 2 following its March 23 disc release (behind Disney’s Soul), then bounced around the top five in the month since.

Soul, from Pixar Animation studio, maintained the No. 3 spot on both charts. The film just won the Oscar for Best Animated Feature, but the Oscar ceremony occurred after the close of the sales week being tracked.

No. 4 on both charts was Screen Media’s Willy’s Wonderland, the horror-comedy hybrid starring Nicolas Cage as a stranded motorist who must survive a family fun center where the animatronics come to life.

The No. 5 overall disc seller was Warner’s DVD-only collection of the three “Friday” movies, moving up the charts thanks to a relative boost in catalog titles resulting from the lack of big new releases. The No. 5 Blu-ray Disc seller (and No. 7 overall) was Sony Pictures’ video game adaptation Monster Hunter.

The Media Play News rental chart the week ended April 25 had WW84 slip to No. 2 after three weeks in the top spot. The week’s top rental was Lionsgate’s Vanquish, a crime drama available on Redbox a week before its wide April 27 disc release.

The No. 3 rental was News of the World, followed at No. 4 by Willy’s Wonderland and at No. 5 by Universal’s The Croods: A New Age.

‘Wonder Woman 1984’ Tops Watched at Home Chart for Fourth Week; ‘Nomadland,’ ‘Little Things’ Enter Top 20

Warner Bros.’ Wonder Woman 1984 took the No. 1 spot for a fourth consecutive week on the “Watched at Home” chart the week ended April 24. The DC Comics superhero movie starring Gal Gadot has been available on Blu-ray Disc and DVD since March 30, but hasn’t had to deal with much competition in the way of new releases since then.

The week’s top newcomer to the chart was Warner’s The Little Things, at No. 9, following its digital sellthrough release April 20. The crime drama starring Denzel Washington, Rami Malek and Jared Leto, about a pair of sheriffs tracking a serial killer in Los Angeles, was released in theaters Jan. 29, earning $15.2 million at the domestic box office, and was simultaneously available for a month on WarnerMedia’s HBO Max SVOD service. It became available through premium VOD March 19.

The weekly Watched at Home chart, compiled from studio and retailer data and presented by DEG: The Digital Entertainment Group, tracks transactional video activity such as digital sellthrough, DVD and Blu-ray Disc, but not premium VOD or disc rental.

Best Picture Oscar winner Nomadland, from Disney-owned Searchlight Pictures, the indie arm of 20th Century Studios, made its first appearance on the Watched at Home chart at No. 11. It was released for digital purchase April 13 following a simultaneous run on Hulu and in theaters that saw it bring in $2.1 million at the domestic box office. Its appearance on the chart comes in the week just prior to its April 25 Oscar win, though its status as an Awards frontrunner likely upped its profile to home viewers. It was released on Blu-ray April 27, though the disc wasn’t made available on shelves by many retailers.

Universal Pictures’ Promising Young Woman moved up a spot to No. 2. The film, which stars Carey Mulligan as a woman whose promising future was derailed by a mysterious event, won the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay, but as noted the Academy Awards ceremony was held after the cutoff for the chart’s weekly tracking period.

Universal’s Tom Hanks-starring Western News of the World slipped to No. 3, while DreamWorks Animation’s The Croods: A New Age, also from Universal, remained at No. 4.

Rounding out the top five was Saban Films’ crime thriller City of Lies, which moved up two spots from the previous week. The film stars Johnny Depp as a retired detective and Forest Whitaker as a journalist examining the Los Angeles Police Department investigations of the murders of rappers Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G. Lionsgate releases the film on Blu-ray and DVD June 8.

‘Vanquish’ Tops Redbox Disc Rentals; ‘WW84’ Still No. 1 On Demand

Crime thriller Vanquish, from Lionsgate, took over the No. 1 spot on the Redbox disc rental chart the week ended April 25, and was No. 4 on the Redbox On Demand chart.

But the superhero sequel spent a fourth consecutive week at No. 1 on the Redbox On Demand chart, which tracks digital rental transactions.

‘The Croods: A New Age’ Tops March Disc Sales, ‘Wonder Woman 1984’ No. 2

Universal Pictures Home Entertainment’s The Croods: A New Age was No. 1 on the top 10 list of combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc unit sales for March 2021 according to the NPD Group’s VideoScan tracking service.

It’s the second month in a row topped by the DreamWorks Animation sequel, which was released on disc Feb. 23 and spent four weeks atop the weekly disc sales charts. It also remains the top-selling disc of the year so far.

Warner’s Wonder Woman 1984 was the No. 2 seller in March despite having just two days to make the chart after its release on DVD and Blu-ray March 30. Those two days of sales were apparently also enough to push the superhero sequel to the No. 2 seller for the year to date as well.

The No. 3 March seller was Sony Pictures’ video game adaptation Monster Hunter, which was released on disc at the beginning of the month.

Disney’s Soul, the latest animated movie from Pixar, was the No. 4 seller for the month, having been released on Blu-ray and DVD March 23.

Rounding out the month’s top five was Universal’s News of the World.

A two-movie “Croods” collection moved up to No. 6 after debuting at No. 8 in February. The rest of the top 10 monthly sellers consisted of catalog titles.

On the year-to-date chart, Monster Hunter grabbed the No. 3 spot, pushing Universal and STX Films’ Greenland to No. 4, two spots lower than its position after February.

Soul by the end of March reached the No. 5 spot for the year.

Paramount’s Love and Monsters slipped two spots on the yearly chart to No. 6, though it did climb over Warner’s Tenet, which slipped five spots to No. 8. In between them, at No. 7, is News of the World.
