'My Big Fat Greek Wedding' sequel bows at No. 2

Walt Disney Studios’ “Zootopia,” the animated “buddy cop” film about a rabbit cop and a red fox con that earned $340.5 million in U.S. theaters, remained on top of the national home video sales charts for the third consecutive week.

Universal Pictures’ “My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2,” a belated sequel to the 2002 comedy about a young Greek woman who falls in love with a non-Greek, debuted at No. 2 on both the NPD VideoScan overall disc sales chart and the Blu-ray Disc-only sales chart.

The film, which earned nearly $60 million in U.S. theaters, is centered on a second Greek wedding, this time between the parents of the Greek bride, who 50 years after the fact discover their original wedding wasn’t valid.

“My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2” sold 72.6% as many units in its first week in stores as “Zootopia” did in its third week of availability, NPD research shows.

Another Universal Pictures sequel, “London Has Fallen,” slipped to No. 3 on both charts its second week in stores, while 20th Century Fox’s “Deadpool” and Paramount’s “13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi” each dropped a notch as well, to No. 4 and No. 5, respectively, again on both sales charts.
A second new theatrical release, “Midnight Special,” debuted at No. 10 on the overall disc sales chart and No. 11 on the Blu-ray Disc chart. The film, about a father and a son, with special powers, who are on the run from both the government and a cult that worships the boy, earned less than $4 million in U.S. theaters.

“My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2” generated 43% of its total unit sales from Blu-ray Disc, which celebrates its 10th birthday this month.“Zootopia” during the week generated 48% of its sales from Blu-ry Disc, down from 60% in its initial week of release.

On Home Media Magazine’s rental chart, Warner’s “How to be Single” rose to No. 1 now that its 28-day holdback from Redbox is over, while “Zootopia” held onto the No. 2 spot and Paramount’s “10 Cloverfield Lane,” the previous week’s top rental, slipped to No. 3.

Twentieth Century Fox’s “Deadpool” finished the week at No. 4, down from No. 3 the prior week, while Paramount’s “13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi” dropped a notch as well, to No. 5.
