Warner Bros. Home Entertainment’s Tenet 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 Dec. 19.
The thriller from director Christopher Nolan earned $57.9 million from a domestic box office run subdued by the coronavirus pandemic. The film deals with a secret agent who manipulates time in an effort to prevent World War III.
Blu-ray Disc formats accounted for 82% of first-week Tenet sales; 46% of the total was the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray disc version.
The No. 2 title on both charts, 1989’s National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, sold 40% as many copies as Tenet, 18% as many Blu-rays.
Tenet was also No. 1 on the Media Play News rental chart for the week ended Dec. 20, pushing Paramount’s Fatman to No. 2.
