‘Spectre’ Tops Home Video Sales Charts

'Crimson Peak,' 'Love the Coopers' also hit charts their first week out

Spectre,” the latest James Bond film, rode its $200 million box office gross to a No. 1 debut on the national home video sales charts the week ending Feb. 14.

The MGM film, distributed for the home market by 20th Century Fox, is the first Bond film since 2012’s “Skyfall,” which earned more than $304 million in theaters. Despite its significantly lower box office earnings, “Spectre” – the fourth Bond film with Daniel Craig in the starring role – is still the second-highest theatrical performer among the 24 films in the franchise.

“Spectre” bowed in the top spot on both Nielsen VideoScan’s overall disc sales chart and the dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart. Both top sellers from the previous week slipped to No. 2 – Lionsgate’s “The Last Witch Hunter” on the overall disc sales chart and Walt Disney Studios’ “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” on the Blu-ray chart.

On the overall disc sales chart, Sony Pictures’s “Goosebumps” moved up a notch to No. 3 from No. 4, while the rapper docudrama “Straight Outta Compton,” from Universal Pictures, moved back up to No. 4 from No. 6 its fourth week in stores.

Rounding out the top five on the overall disc sales chart was 20th Century Fox’s “The Martian,” which has been in stores for five weeks.

Other newcomers to the top 20, aside from “Spectre,” are “Crimson Peak,” from Universal Pictures, which bowed at No. 8, and Lionsgate’s “Love the Coopers,” which debuted at No. 10. “Crimson Peak,” which earned $31 million in theaters, is a fantasy-mystery about a woman who moves with her mysterious new husband into a house filled with ghosts.

Love the Coopers” is a family comedy narrated by Steve Martin (as Rags the dog) and featuring an ensemble cast that includes John Goodman, Diane Keaton and Ed Helms. The film earned more than $26 million in theaters.

“Spectre” generated 63% of its total unit sales from Blu-ray, compared to 52% for “Crimson Peak” and just 26% for “Love the Coopers.”

On Home Media magazine’s rental chart for the week, 20th Century Fox’s “The Martian” took the No. 1 spot now that its month-long holdback from Redbox is over, bumping the previous week’s top rental, “The Last Witch Hunter,” to No. 2.

Sony Pictures’ “Goosebumps” slipped a notch to No. 3, while “Love the Coopers” debuted at No. 4.

Rounding out the top five was Universal Pictures’ “The Visit.”
