‘Maze Runner’ Sequel Tops DVD, Blu-ray Disc Sales Charts

Maze Runner: The Death Cure,” from 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment, debuted at No. 1 on 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 the week ended April 28.

The third and final film based on the post-apocalyptic “Maze Runner” young adult novels earned $58 million at the domestic box office. A trilogy collection landed at No. 12 overall and No. 10 on the Blu-ray chart.

The musical hit “The Greatest Showman,” also from Fox, dropped to No. 2 after two weeks in the top spot.

The heist thriller “Den of Thieves,” from Universal Pictures, debuted at No. 3 overall and No. 4 on the Blu-ray chart after a $45 million haul at the domestic box office.

Another newcomer, Lionsgate’s “Hostiles,” debuted at No. 4 overall and No. 5 on the Blu-ray chart. The film, which stars Christian Bale as a U.S. Cavalry officer assigned to escort a Cheyenne chief and his family back to tribal lands in 1892, earned $29.8 million in U.S. theaters.

Dropping to the fifth spot overall and third on the Blu-ray list was Disney’s “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” in its fifth week on disc.

Two other newcomers found a spot in the overall top 10, with Warner’s “Paddington 2” debuting at No. 6 (No. 7 on the Blu-ray chart) and Lionsgate’s “Forever My Girl” at No. 7 (No. 11 on the Blu-ray chart).

Blu-ray Disc accounted for 58% of unit sales for both Death Cure and Den of Thieves, compared with 43% for Hostiles, 51% for Paddington 2 and 30% for Forever My Girl.

On the Media Play News rental chart for the week ended April 29, Den of Thieves debuted at No. 1, pushing Lionsgate’s The Commuter to No. 2.
