‘300’ Dethrones ‘Lego Movie’ for No. 1 Spot on Home Video Sales Chart

A pair of titles from Warner Bros. dominated the home video sales charts the week ending June 29, as “300: Rise of an Empire” and “The Lego Movie” accounted for 58% of all disc sales among the top 20.

The historical actioner “300: Rise of an Empire,” a follow-up to the 2007 film “300,” debuted at No. 1 on the Nielsen VideoScan First Alert chart — which tracks overall DVD and Blu-ray Disc combined sales — while the previous week’s top title, “The Lego Movie,” dropped to No. 2 after selling 97% as the “300” sequel.

The two titles also topped VideoScan’s dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart, with “Lego Movie” selling 73% as many copies of the high-definition format as “300: Rise of an Empire.” Universal’s “Lone Survivor” landed at No. 3 on both charts, dropping a spot from a week earlier.

Rounding out the top five on First Alert, Disney’s megahit “Frozen” moved up to No. 4, with Universal’s “Non-Stop” at No. 5. Paramount’s “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit” was No. 4 on the Blu-ray chart, with “Frozen” at No. 5.

Two other new releases debuted in the top 10 on First Alert: Lionsgate’s “Duck Dynasty: Season 5,” the latest batch of episodes from the reality TV hit, came in at No. 6, while the fantasy “Winter’s Tale,” from Warner, bowed at No. 7.

Home Media Magazine’s rental chart saw the top two titles carry over from the previous week, with Fox’s “3 Days to Kill” at No. 1 and “Jack Ryan” at No. 2.

Universal’s “Endless Love” came off its 28-day holdback at key rental outlets Redbox and Netflix to become the No. 3 rental, while Lionsgate’s “Enemy,” a thriller starring Jake Gyllenhaal, debuted at No. 4, followed by “Joe,” also from Lionsgate, at No. 5, dropping from No. 3 a week earlier.
