‘Lego Movie’ Keeps No. 1 Spot on Home Video Charts

With no major new releases hitting stores last week, the top four disc sellers for the week ending July 13 remain unchanged.

Warner’s “The LEGO Movie” again finished the week at No. 1 on the Nielsen VideoScan First Alert sales chart, which tracks overall disc sales, Blu-ray Disc and DVD combined.

The historical actioner “300: Rise of an Empire,” also from Warner, came in at No. 2, followed at No. 3 by Walt Disney Studios’ “Frozen” and at No. 4 by Universal Studios’ “Lone Survivor.”

Twentieth Century Fox’s “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” shot up to No. 5 from No. 16 the previous week in anticipation of the July 11 theatrical opening of “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,” the sequel to the 2011 film, which began the studio’s reboot of the original “Planet of the Apes” franchise. “Dawn” scored a weekend gross of $73 million, significantly more than the $54.8 million gross generated by “Rise” the weekend of Aug. 5, 2011.

The highest-ranking new release was Universal Studios’ “Bad Words,” a comedy about revenge at a spelling bee that grossed less than $8 million in U.S. theaters – and which sold just 17.7% as many units its first week in stores as “The LEGO Movie” in week four.

“Bad Words” debuted at No. 6 on the overall disc sales chart, followed at No. 7 by another new release, “The Raid 2,” from Sony Pictures. The Indonesian gangster flick – yes, you read that right – grossed less than $3 million at the domestic box office.

On Nielsen VideoScan’s dedicated Blu-ray Disc chart, “The LEGO Movie” and “300: Rise of an Empire” also repeated at No. 1 and No. 2, but the No. 3 spot went to “The Raid 2,” which generated 69% of its total unit sales from the Blu-ray Disc version.

Frozen” again finished at No. 4, while “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” rose to No. 5 from No. 8 the prior week.

On Home Media Magazine’s rental chart for the week, Universal Studios’ “Non-Stop” shot to No. 1 now that its 28-day holdback from Netflix and Redbox is over. That bumped “Lone Survivor,” also from Universal Studios, to No. 2, and RoboCop, from 20th Century Fox, to No. 3.

“3 Days to Kill,” another 20th Century Fox title, held on to the No. 4 spot, while Paramount’s “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit” slipped to No. 5 from No. 3 the previous week.

“The Raid 2” debuted at No. 10.
