‘Top Gun: Maverick’ Grabs Most Digital Sales Ever on Weekly U.K. Home Entertainment Chart Debut

After upending the box office, Paramount Home Entertainment’s release of Top Gun: Maverick across global retail markets is showing no signs of slowing down.

Following its release on digital platforms, Maverick quickly became the biggest-selling No. 1 debut in 2022 (through Aug. 31) and in the history of the Official Film Chart — the U.K.’s weekly home entertainment sales chart for transactional VOD and packaged media.

The critically acclaimed sequel to the classic 1986 air force action film re-unites Tom Cruise with former on-screen buddy Val Kilmer, as well as a newcomers Miles Teller, Jennifer Connelly and Glen Powell.

The original Top Gun rebounded to No. 3 on the chart, and a special combination package featuring the original and its sequel is another new entry during the week at No. 8.

Elsewhere, Dog Soldiers, a 2002 British action-horror starring Sean Pertwee and directed by future “Games of Thrones” and Thor: The Dark World director Neil Marshall, marked a new entry on the chart at No. 9, following a special re-release to celebrate its 20th anniversary.

And finally, former chart topper Uncharted (Sony Pictures Home Entertainment) moved back up six spots into the top 10.
