Lionsgate’s ‘Wonder’ Tops DVD, Blu-ray Disc Sales and Rental Charts

Magnolia Pictures’ “Blade of the Immortal” bows at No. 16 on Blu-ray Disc sales chart

Lionsgate topped the national home video sales charts the week ended Feb. 17 with “Wonder,” the acclaimed drama about a child with Treacher Collins syndrome – a genetic disorder characterized by deformities of the ears, eyes, cheekbones, and chin – who is trying desperately to fit in.

Universal Pictures’ “A Bad Moms Christmas” slipped to No. 2 on both charts its second week in stores, after having bowed at No. 1 the prior week.

The Sony Pictures’ firefighter drama “Only the Brave” slipped to No. 3 on the overall chart and No. 6 on the Blu-ray Disc sales chart after debuting in second and third place, respectively, the previous week.

Rounding out the top five on the combined chart were Lionsgate’s “Boo 2! A Madea Halloween” at No. 4 and Warner’s horror hit “It” at No. 5, both unchanged from the prior week.

On the Blu-ray Disc sales chart, Warner’s animated “Batman: Gotham by Gaslight” finished the week at No. 3, down a notch from its debut the week before.
“It” and Warner’s “Blade Runner 2049” finished the week at No. 4 and No. 5, switching places from the prior week.

The only other new release to make the top 20 on both charts was Sony Pictures’ “Roman J. Israel, Esq.,” a legal drama starring Denzel Washington as an autistic savant lawyer who loses his sheltered employment when his long-time boss suddenly dies. The film, with a box office take of just $11 million, debuted at No. 10 on the overall disc sales chart and No. 12 on the Blu-ray Disc sales chart.
