‘Beauty and the Beast’ Regains Top Spot on Disc Charts

'Life' debuts at No. 2

Walt Disney’s live-action “Beauty and the Beast” returned to the No. 1 spot on the national home video sales charts the week ended June 25, while newcomer “Life,” a science-fiction horror film from Sony Pictures, rode its $30 million domestic box office gross to a top five debut.

Life,” about a group of astronauts who unwittingly return from Mars with a monster-in-waiting, debuted at No. 2 on the NPD VideoScan overall disc sales chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc sales, and No. 4 on the dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart. NPD data shows it sold 96% as many units during the week as “Beauty and the Beast.”

The previous week’s top seller, “John Wick: Chapter 2,” from Lionsgate, slipped to No. 3 on the overall disc sales chart and No. 2 on the Blu-ray Disc chart.

“The LEGO Batman Movie” from Warner Bros., slipped to No. 4 on the overall disc sales chart and remained at No. 3 on the Blu-ray Disc chart. The film, which earned more than $175 million in U.S. theaters, had debuted the prior week at No. 3 on both charts.

Rounding out the top five on both charts was Twentieth Century Fox’s “Logan,” the latest in the “X-Men” franchise, down a notch from No. 4 the prior week.

“Life” generated just 48% of its first-week sales from Blu-ray Disc.

On Home Media Magazine’s rental chart for the week, “Logan” shot to No. 1 now that its 28-day holdback from Netflix is over, while “The LEGO Batman Movie” soared to No. 2 now that it, too, is available at Redbox under Warner’s new shortened window.

The prior week’s top rental, “John Wick: Chapter 2,” slipped to No. 3.

Rounding out the top five are Universal Pictures’ “Get Out,” which also has just come off a month-long holdback from Redbox, at No. 4, and “Beauty and the Beast” at No. 5, down from No. 2 the prior week.
