Tyler Perry’s ‘Boo’ Sequel Scares Up No. 1 Disc Debut
February 8, 2018
Tyler Perry’s spooky comedy Boo 2! A Madea Halloween, distributed on home video by Lionsgate, debuted at No. 1 on the NPD VideoScan First Alert sales chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc unit sales, the week ended Feb. 3.
Boo 2 earned $47.3 million at the domestic box office.
The top seller on the dedicated Blu-ray Disc chart, for the third week in a row, was Warner’s Blade Runner 2049, which topped the high-def market despite dropping to third overall after two weeks in the top spot. That’s because 60% of all Blade Runner 2049 sales were of the Blu-ray format, compared with 24% for Boo 2. As a result, Boo 2 came in at No. 2 on the Blu-ray chart.
Coming in at No. 2 overall and No. 3 on the Blu-ray chart was another Warner title, the horror film It.
Warner’s Geostorm dropped to No. 4 on both sales charts, followed by Lionsgate’s Jigsaw at No. 5.
On Media Play News‘ rental chart for the week ended Feb. 4, Geostorm came off its week-long holdback at Redbox kiosks to move into the top spot.
Blade Runner 2049, the top rental the week before, slipped to No. 2, while Boo 2 debuted at No. 3.
Rounding out the top five were It and Jigsaw.

You got to be kidding me. This movie was so boring and really sucked. If this is an indication what makes a number one disc we are all in big trouble.
