‘Zootopia,’ ’13 Hours’ Take Two Top Spots on DVD, Blu-ray Disc Charts

Latest Disney 'Animated Classic' outsells No. 2 title, 6-1

Two new releases took over the two top spots on the national home video sales charts the week ended June 12, led by Walt Disney Studios’ “Zootopia,” the animated “buddy cop” film about a rabbit cop and a red fox con that earned $338.4 million in U.S. theaters.

Zootopia,” from Walt Disney Animation Studios, is the 55th film in the studio’s celebrated Disney Animated Classics line, which dates back to 1937’s “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.”

The film outsold second-ranked “13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi,” from Paramount, by a margin of nearly six to one, according to NPD VideoScan data.

The Michael Bay-helmed “13 Hours,” a docudrama that follows six members of a security team who fight to defend the American diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, in September 2012, debuted at No. 2 on both the VideoScan overall disc sales chart and the dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart. The film racked up a domestic theatrical gross of $52.9 million.

The previous week’s top seller, Lionsgate’s “Gods of Egypt,” slipped to No. 4 on both charts its second week of release, one spot behind 20th Century Fox’s “Deadpool,” the superhero super-hit that spent three weeks at No. 1 before getting dislodged a week ago by “Gods,” an action movie about feuding Egyptian deities that grossed just $31.1 million in U.S. theaters.

Rounding out the top five on both charts was Disney’s “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” which has now spent 10 weeks in the top five.

“Zootopia” generated 60% of its total unit sales from Blu-ray Disc, compared to 63% for “13 Hours.”

Home Media Magazine market research shows that for the first five months of this year, Blu-ray Disc sales are up 3% in units sold and 6% in revenue.

On Home Media Magazine’s rental chart, “Deadpool” rose to No. 1 now that its 28-day holdback from Redbox is over, while “13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi” debuted at No. 2.

Gods of Egypt” slipped to No. 3 after having bowed at No. 1 on the rental chart the previous week.

Rounding out the top five are Universal Pictures’ “Ride Along 2” at No. 4 and another Universal film, the horror flick “The Boy,” at No. 5. “The Boy” also is a month-old release that just became available at Redbox last week.
