Disney Races to Top of Disc Sales Charts With ‘Cars 3’

Universal Pictures' 'Atomic Blonde' debuts at No. 2

Disney’s “Cars 3” topped the NPD VideoScan First Alert sales chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc unit sales, and the dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart for a second consecutive week, holding off a surge from Universal’s “Atomic Blonde” the week ended Nov. 18.

Atomic Blonde,” an action thriller starring Charlize Theron, debuted at No. 2 on both charts selling about 86% as many copies in its first week as “Cars 3” did in its second (and 89% as many Blu-ray units). “Atomic Blonde” earned $51.6 million at the domestic box office.

Coming in at a distant No. 3 overall was another newcomer, Lionsgate’s “Wind River,” a murder mystery with “Avengers” stars Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen that earned $33.8 million in U.S. theaters. Rounding out the top five were a pair of superhero films demonstrating staying power on the home video charts: Sony Pictures’ “Spider-Man: Homecoming” at No. 4 and Warner’s “Wonder Woman” at No. 5.

On the Blu-ray chart, “Spider-Man: Homecoming” was No. 3, “Wonder Woman” was No. 4 and “Wind River” was No. 5.

Blu-ray Disc accounted for 67% of total unit sales for “Atomic Blonde,” with 14% of its sales coming from the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray format, setting a record for highest UHD Blu-ray share for a major theatrical title in its first week (14.2% compared to “Alien: Covenant” scoring 14.1% in August). For “Wind River,” Blu-ray comprised 44% of its first-week unit sales.

On Home Media Magazine’s rental chart for the week ended Nov. 19, Universal’s “Girls Trip” moved to the top spot after a month-long holdback at Redbox. “Wind River” debuted at No. 2.

Rounding out the top five were “Cars 3” at No. 3, Sony Pictures’ “The Dark Tower” at No. 4 and Fox’s “War for the Planet of the Apes” at No. 5.
