‘Top Gun,’ Both Original and ‘Maverick,’ Conquer U.K. Home Entertainment Sales Charts

Paramount Home Entertainment’s Top Gun: Maverick and the original 1986 Top Gun release continue to resonate with consumers. Maverick finished atop the Official Film Chart for its seventh non-consecutive week No. 1 on the U.K. weekly home entertainment sales chart following its packaged media release. A boxed set combo of the two movies on DVD/Blu-ray Disc finished No. 7 in unit sales.

At No. 2 was the 2003 Will Farrell comedy Elf from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment.

Universal Pictures Home Entertainment’s Jurassic World Dominion moved up two spots to No. 3, followed by Warner’s Elvis, and Universal’s period drama Downton Abbey: A New Era, which climbed six spots to No. 5, following a strong week of sales across DVD, Blu-ray and 4K UHD Blu-ray.

Jordan Peele’s latest horror movie Nope (Universal) shot up 26 spots to No. 6, marking the movie’s first-ever top 10 finish thanks to the disc release. Starring Daniel Kaluuya and Keke Palmer, among others, the sci-fi thriller follows a pair of siblings, whose father died in a freak accident, investigating other-worldly encounters.

The Robert Pattinson superhero film The Batman (Warner) held at No. 8, followed by Universal’s Minions: The Rise of Gru (9) and the first top 10 placing of the 2022 season for the animated version of The Grinch, starring Benedict Cumberbatch — the most digitally downloaded film of the week in the United Kingdom.
