Universal Pictures’ Trolls World Tour remained No. 1 on the NPD VideoScan First Alert chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc unit sales, the week ended Aug. 29.
It marks the second week in a row in the top spot for the DreamWorks Animation sequel, and its fourth time at No. 1 in its eight weeks on shelves. Trolls World Tour spent two weeks as the top disc in July as well before Scoob! took over the top spot for four weeks.
On the Blu-ray Disc sales chart, however, Trolls spent a second week at No. 2, barely edged out by the top title, Warner’s Deathstroke: Knights & Dragons, which claimed the top Blu-ray spot for a second week as well.
The ‘R’-rated Deathstroke, a movie compiled from episodes of the CW Seed animated Web series of the same name, outsold Trolls on Blu-ray by less than half a percent. It fell to No. 13 on the overall disc sales chart; all copies of it were released as a Blu-ray combo pack, explaining its relatively higher placement on the Blu-ray-only chart.
No. 2 on the overall sellers list for a second week, and again No. 4 on the Blu-ray Disc chart was Warner’s animated Scoob!, which as mentioned had been the top seller overall for four weeks before Trolls returned to the top spot.
Holding at No. 3 on the overall disc chart, but slipping to No. 6 on the Blu-ray chart, was Screen Media’s war film The Outpost.
Rounding out the top five on the overall disc sales charts were seasons one and two, in that order, of the Kevin Costner series “Yellowstone,” from Paramount. The third season of the series recently concluded on Paramount Network.
The week’s top new release, at No. 6 overall and No. 3 on the Blu-ray chart, was Universal Pictures’ The King of Staten Island, the latest comedy from Judd Apatow, starring and based on the life of Pete Davidson of “Saturday Night Live.”
On the Media Play News rental chart for the week ended Aug. 30, The King of Staten Island debuted at No. 1, pushing The Outpost to No. 2.
A Redbox original action-thriller, Hard Kill, debuted at No. 3.
Scoob! slipped two spots to No. 4, and Universal’s You Should Have Left slipped to No. 5.
