Universal Pictures’ The Croods: A New Age continued its reign over the home video charts the week ended March 13. For the third consecutive week, the DreamWorks Animation sequel topped both the NPD VideoScan First Alert chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc unit sales, and the dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart.
In fact, four the five top disc sellers carried over from the previous week. No. 2 on both charts was Sony Pictures’ video game adaptation Monster Hunter, followed at No. 3 by the “Croods” two-film collection. No. 5 on both charts was STX Films’ Greenland, distributed on disc by Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.
The week’s top newcomer, at No. 4, was Lionsgate’s Vanguard, a Chinese actioner starring Jackie Chan as the CEO of a security firm tasked with protecting a corrupt businessman who rats out his partner in an arms deal. Vanguard had 48% of its sales come from the Blu-ray Disc format.
The Media Play News rental chart for the week ended March 14 had The Croods: A New Age return to the top spot it held two weeks earlier before dropping to No. 2 a week ago.
The intervening top rental, Monster Hunter, slipped to No. 2.
Quiver Entertainment’s Crisis, which is available on disc exclusively as a Redbox rental until April 20, climbed five spots to No. 3, pushing Lionsgate’s Fatale to No. 4, and Greenland to No. 5.
Vanguard debuted as the No. 6 rental.
