“Transformers: The Last Knight,” from Paramount Home Media Distribution, debuted at No. 1 on both national home video sales charts the week ended Sept. 30.
But Warner’s “Wonder Woman” movie, although bumped down to the No. 2 spot, remained in high demand, selling 87% as many units as the latest “Transformers” film in its second week of release.
The No. 3 spot on NPD VideoScan’s overall disc sales chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc sales, went to Lionsgate’s “47 Meters Down,” the latest in a series of shark-attack thrillers. The film made more than $44 million in U.S. theaters.
Disney’s “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” came in at No. 3 on NPD’s Blu-ray Disc-only sales chart and No. 5 on the overall disc sales chart. Earlier, the film spent three weeks at No. 1.
Universal Pictures’ “The Mummy” slipped to No. 4 on both charts its third week in stores, while the No. 5 spot on the Blu-ray Disc chart went to DreamWorks Animation’s “Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie,” distributed by 20th Century Fox.
NPD data shows that “Transformers” generated 70% of its first-week sales from Blu-ray Disc, just a little less than the 73% figure posted by “Wonder Woman” in its first week. In its second week in stores, the Blu-ray Disc percentage for “Wonder Woman” slipped to 66%.
On Home Media Magazine’s rental chart for the week ended Oct. 1, “Wonder Woman” shot to No. 1 now that its brief week-long holdback from Redbox is over.
“Captain Underpants,” the prior week’s top rental, slipped to No. 4, while “Baywatch” fell to No. 5 from No. 2.
