Paramount’s “Jack Reacher: Never Go Back,” an action sequel with Tom Cruise as a vigilante drifter who goes on the run with an Army major framed for espionage, topped both national home video sales charts the week of Feb. 5. The film grossed a little more than $58 million in U.S. theaters, about $20 million less than the 2012 original.

Three other new releases grabbed the next three chart positions on the NPD VideoScan overall disc sales chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc sales.

Lionsgate continued its traditional early-in-the-year disc-sales winning streak with two new Tyler Perry releases debuting in the top five: “Boo! A Madea Halloween” at No. 2 and “Madea on the Run – The Play” at No. 4. Both are among a string of comedies starring the popular African American actor, comedian, filmmaker, writer, and songwriter as a gritty, elderly black woman.

Walt Disney Studios’ “Pinocchio,” polished up for its Blu-ray Disc “Signature Edition” debut, bowed at No. 3.

Sony Pictures’ “Inferno,” which debuted at No. 1 on both sales charts the prior week, dropped to No. 5 on the overall disc sales chart.

On NPD VideoScan’s dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart, “Pinocchio” debuted at No. 2 and “Boo!” bowed at No. 3.

“Inferno” took the No. 4 spot, with Warner’s “Suicide Squad” rounding out the top five. The film dropped to No. 8 on the overall disc sales chart, from No. 2 the prior week.

“Jack Reacher” generated 59% of its total unit sales from Blu-ray Disc, NPD data shows, compared to 87% for “Pinocchio” and just 20% and 12%, respectively, for the two Tyler Perry discs, “Boo!” and “Madea on the Run.”

On Home Media Magazine’s rental chart for the week, “Jack Reacher: Never Go Back” debuted at No. 1, followed by “Boo!” at No. 2.

Lionsgate’s “Deepwater Horizon” slipped to No. 3 after three weeks at No. 1, while “Inferno” bowed at No. 4.

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