‘Zootopia’ Stays on Top of Disc Charts

'London Has Fallen,' '10 Cloverfield Lane' Bow in top 5

Walt Disney Studios’ “Zootopia” kept the No. 1 spot on the home video sales charts the week ended June 19, topping the NPD VideoScan First Alert sales chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc unit sales, as well as the dedicated Blu-ray disc chart.

The animated adventure had debuted in the top spot on both charts a week earlier and doubled the unit sales of the No. 2 debut of “London Has Fallen,” a Universal-distributed sequel to 2013’s “Olympus Has Fallen.” The follow-up again stars Gerard Butler as a secret service agent protecting the president (Aaron Eckhart) from terrorists, but transplants the setting from the White House in the first movie to the city of London. “London Has Fallen” earned $62.5 million in U.S. theaters.

Fox’s “Deadpool” stayed at No. 3 and Paramount’s “13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi” dropped to No. 4.

Another newcomer, Paramount’s “10 Cloverfield Lane,” debuted at No. 5 on both charts. The sci-fi thriller features Mary Elizabeth Winstead and John Goodman trapped in a bunker during a crisis. It earned $72.1 million domestically.

Disney’s “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” finally slipped from the top 5, landing at No. 6 on both charts in its 11th week.

The only other newcomer in the overall top 10 was Fox’s “Eddie the Eagle,” a biopic about Olympic ski-jumper Eddie Edwards, which debuted at No. 9 (No. 11 on the Blu-ray chart).

Fox’s DVD and Blu-ray release of the six-episode “The X-Files: The Event Series” revival debuted at No. 11 overall and No. 10 on the Blu-ray chart.

About 51% of “Zootopia” unit sales were of a Blu-ray Disc version in its second week, down from 60% in its first. Blu-ray accounted for 55% of “London Has Fallen” sales, 59% of “Cloverfield,” 47% of “Eddie the Eagle” and 52% of “X-Files.”

On Home Media Magazine’s weekly rental chart, “10 Cloverfield Lane” scored the No. 1 spot, as most of the other newcomers were from studios that hold back new releases from Redbox rental kiosks for a month.

“Zootopia” gained some rental traction to move up to No. 2 for the week, while “Deadpool” dropped to No. 3 after topping the chart the week before.

Rounding out the rental top five were “13 Hours” and Universal’s “Ride Along 2.”
