Universal Pictures’s Trolls World Tour was No. 1 on the domestic top 10 list of combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc unit sales for July 2020 according to the NPD Group’s VideoScan tracking service.
The DreamWorks Animation sequel spent two weeks atop the weekly disc sales charts following its July 7 release on disc. A double-feature of both “Trolls” movies was No. 6 for the month.
Warner’s Scoob! which topped the weekly disc sales the last two weeks of the month following its July 21 release, was No. 2 for the month.
The previous month’s top seller, Paramount’s Sonic the Hedgehog, slipped to No. 3 in July.
Without much in the way of big new releases as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, the rest of the monthly top 10 sellers consisted of catalog titles. No. 4 was Warner’s The Mule, starring Clint Eastwood. No. 5 was Paramount’s Top Gun, which climbed two spots from the previous month. Universal’s Jurassic World was No. 7 for the month, while Universal’s Jaws held onto the No. 8 spot for a second month.
The year’s top eight titles remained unchanged from the previous month, led by Disney’s Frozen II, which has been the year’s best seller since February.
The only blip on the yearly top 10 as a result of July sales was that Paramount’s Terminator: Dark Fate rose a spot to No. 9, pushing Sony Pictures’ Zombieland: Double Tap to No. 10.
