‘Top Gun: Maverick’ Remains No. 1 on DVD and Blu-ray Sales Charts

Paramount Home Entertainment’s Top Gun: Maverick remained 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 Nov. 12.

The film, which finds Tom Cruise returning as his character from 1986’s Top Gun to train a new generation of fighter pilots, had no trouble maintaining the top spot on the charts in a week that didn’t see much in the way of big new releases, outselling the No. 2 title by around an 11-to-1 margin in its second week on shelves.

That runner up on the overall disc sales chart was Disney-owned Marvel Studios’ Thor: Love and Thunder in its seventh week on disc. It was No. 4 on the Blu-ray Disc sales chart.

The No. 3 overall seller was Universal Pictures’ 2018 animated The Grinch, up nine spots from the previous week and getting a boost as retailers begin catalog sales in time for the holiday season.

No. 4 on the overall chart, and No. 2 on the Blu-ray chart, was Marvel’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness in its 16th week on physical media. It was No. 45 a week earlier.

Rounding out the overall top five was Sony Pictures’ Bullet Train, which was No. 11 on the Blu-ray chart.

The No. 5 Blu-ray seller was Warner’s The Batman, which was No. 12 on the overall chart.

Casablanca was the No. 5 4K seller for the week, following Top Gun: Maverick, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, and Warner’s Dune: Part One and Edge of Tomorrow.

The 1989 comedy Earth Girls Are Easy was given a new Blu-ray release from Lionsgate, pushing it to No. 34 on the overall disc chart and No. 19 on the Blu-ray chart.

The top non-catalog newcomer, Warner’s Aqua Teen Forever: Plantasm, a new “Aqua Teen Hunger Force” direct-to-video movie, debuted at No. 40, and No. 21 on the Blu-ray Disc chart. It was released only on Blu-ray formats, with 45% of its sales coming from a 4K edition.
