‘Tenet’ Back Atop Disc Sales Charts for Fourth Time

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment’s Tenet returned to the top spot 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 Jan. 16.

It’s the fourth time in five weeks the latest thriller from director Christopher Nolan has been No. 1 since arriving on shelves Dec. 15. It was the top disc seller for three weeks after its premiere before slipping to No. 2 a week ago.

The movie that took the top spot in that gap, Paramount’s Love and Monsters, slipped to No. 2 on both charts.
