Newest ‘Spider-Man’ Movie Shoots to Top of DVD, Blu-ray Disc Charts

'Girls Trip' debuts at No. 2

Sony Pictures’ “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” the second reboot of the Marvel Comics franchise, easily snagged the top spot on both national home video sales charts the week ended Oct. 21, while the Universal Pictures comedy “Girls Trip,” about four female buddies road-tripping to New Orleans, debuted at No. 2.

After two weeks at No. 1, Walt Disney Studios’ “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales,” the fifth film in the pirate franchise, slipped to No. 3 on NPD VideoScan’s dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart and No. 4 on the overall disc sales chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc sales.

Holding its own was the 1993 Halloween fave “Hocus Pocus,” from Disney, which moved up a notch to No. 3 on the overall disc sales chart.

Rounding out the top five on the combined chart was Sony Pictures’ “Baby Driver,” down from No. 2 the prior week.

On the Blu-ray Disc sales chart, “Baby Driver” came in at No. 4, just ahead of Warner’s “Wonder Woman,” which finished at No. 6 on the overall disc sales chart.

The newest “Spider-Man” film was the clear sales leader, with “Girls Trip” selling just 22% as many units.

A third new release, a Blu-ray Disc/DVD combo pack edition of the first season of the original Netflix series “Stranger Things,” available exclusively at Target Stores, debuted at No. 8 on over the overall disc sales chart and No. 6 on the Blu-ray Disc chart.

NPD research shows “Spider-Man: Homecoming” generated 79% of its first-week sales from Blu-ray Disc, and 13% from Ultra HD Blu-ray Disc. “Girls Trip” generated 45% of its sales from Blu-ray Disc.

On Home Media Magazine’s rental chart for the week ended Oct. 22, “Spider-Man: Homecoming” easily debuted at No. 1, while Warner’s “The House” soared to No. 2 now that its week-long holdback from Redbox is over.

“Baby Driver,” the previous week’s top rental, slipped to No. 3.

Rounding out the top five were Universal Pictures’ “The Mummy” at No. 4 (down from No. 2) and “Wonder Woman” at No. 5 (down from No. 4).
