‘Mad Max’ Sequel Still Tops Disc Sales Charts

'Home' still among top five sellers after seven weeks on the chart

Warner’s “Mad Max: Fury Road” remained on top of both national home video sales charts for the second consecutive week, while Lionsgate’s “The Age of Adaline” debuted at No. 2 the week ending Sept. 13 on both Nielsen VideoScan’s overall disc sales chart and the dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart.

The Age of Adaline,” which also debuted at No. 1 on Home Media Magazine’s video rental chart for the week, is a romantic drama that earned $42.6 million in U.S. theaters and stars Blake Lively as a young woman who stops aging after an accident. For a drama, the film sold remarkably well, moving more than 57% as many units as “Fury Road” did in the latter’s second week of release.

DreamWorks Animation’s “Home” slipped a notch to No. 3 on the overall disc chart. The 20th Century Fox-distributed film – which earned $177.4 million at the domestic box office – has remained in the top five for seven weeks, exhibiting remarkable staying power.

Rounding out the top five on the overall disc chart are two new releases: “Barbie in Rock ‘N Royals” (No. 4), the latest direct-to-video release in the Barbie franchise from Universal Pictures, and “Supernatural: The Complete Tenth Season,” from Warner, at No. 5.

Two other new releases finished close behind: “Homeland: Season 4,” from 20th Century Fox, debuted at No. 6, and Lionsgate’s “American Heist,” a crime drama about two wayward brothers, bowed at No. 7.
“Fury Road” generated 48% of its second-week sale from Blu-ray Disc, to 30% for “The Age of Adaline,” 14% for “Barbie,” 19% for “Supernatural,” 21% for “Homeland” and 23% for “American Heist.”

On Home Media Magazine’s video rental chart for the week, “The Age of Adaline” was followed by Universal Pictures’ “Unfriended,” which shot up to No. 2 now that the horror film’s 28-day holdback from Redbox is over. DreamWorks Animation’s “Home,” last week’s top rental, slipped to No. 3, while Warner’s “Hot Pursuit” and Sony Pictures’ “Aloha” round out the top five.
