‘Inside Out’ an Instant Win on Home-Video Charts

'Jurassic World' slips to No. 2 after two weeks as top DVD, Blu-ray Disc seller

Walt Disney Studios’ “Inside Out,” the latest animated adventure from Pixar, debuted at No. 1 on both national home video sales charts for the week ending Nov. 8, bumping Universal Pictures’ “Jurassic World” to the No. 2 spot after two weeks as the country’s top-selling Blu-ray Disc and DVD.

Sales of “Inside Out,” which grossed $356 million in U.S. theaters, were so strong that consumers bought nearly five times as many copies of the film as they did of “Jurassic World” in its third week of release, Nielsen data shows.

Another new release, the comedy “Vacation,” from Warner Bros., debuted at No. 3 on both Nielsen VideoScan’s overall disc sales chart and the dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart. The film is a belated sequel to the original 1983 National Lampoon’s “Vacation.” The film racked up a domestic gross of $59 million, just a few million dollars less than the original.

Sony Pictures’ “Pixels” slipped to No. 4 on the overall disc sales chart and No. 5 on the Blu-ray Disc sales chart after debuting the prior week at No. 2 on both charts.

Rounding out the top five on the overall disc sales chart was Warner’s “Max,” a film about a loyal war dog that bowed at No. 3 the previous week.

On the Blu-ray Disc, Walt Disney’s “Aladdin” held onto the No. 4 spot for the second consecutive week.

According to Nielsen data, “Inside Out” generated 57% of its total unit sales from Blu-ray Disc, the same as “Jurassic World” in its third of release. Last week, the dinosaurs-gone-wild sequel generated 63% of its total unit sales from Blu-ray Disc. “Vacation” generated just 33% of its total unit sales from Blu-ray Disc, Nielsen data shows.

On Home Media Magazine’s video rental chart for the week, Warner’s “San Andreas” moved up to No. 1 now that its holdback from Redbox is over, though it was available a week earlier than the customary 28-day waiting period. Sony Pictures’ “Pixels” held onto the No. 2 spot.

Twentieth Century Fox’s “Spy,” the previous week’s top rental, slipped to No. 3, followed at No. 4 by Universal Pictures’ “The Gift.”

Rounding out the top five was “Inside Out.”
