After debuting at No. 2 a week earlier, Warner’s “Dunkirk” in its second week moved into the top spot on the NPD VideoScan First Alert sales chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc sales charts, the week ended Dec. 30, displacing Universal Pictures’ “Despicable Me 3,” which had been the top title the previous three weeks.

“Dunkirk” also maintained the top spot on the dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart, having debuted at No. 1 the week before.

Overall, following “Despicable Me 3” at No. 2 were Fox’s “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” moving up a spot to No. 3 and Warner’s “The Lego Ninjago Movie” dropping a spot to No. 4. The top newcomer was 20th Century Fox’s “The Mountain Between Us,” a drama starring Idris Elba and Kate Winslet that debuted at No. 5 after a $30.3 million run at the domestic box office.

The top five on the Blu-ray chart were unchanged from the previous week: Lining up behind “Dunkirk” were “Despicable Me 3” at No. 2, “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” at No. 3, “The Lego Ninjago Movie” at No. 4 and Sony Pictures’ “Spider-Man: Homecoming” at No. 5. “Mountain Between Us” was No. 6, with Blu-ray accounting for 48% of its total unit sales.

On Media Play News’ rental chart for the week ended Dec. 31, “Dunkirk” moved up to No. 1, pushing “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” to No. 2.

Sony Pictures’ “Flatliners” remake debuted as the No. 3 rental, followed by “The Lego Ninjago Movie” at No. 4 after coming off a week-long holdback at Redbox rental kiosks. Universal’s “Atomic Blonde” slipped to No. 5.
