LEGO Movie Tops Home Video Sales Charts

Posted by at 1:43 pm on June 26, 2014

lego-movie-coverWarner’s “The LEGO Movie” has shot to the top of both national home video sales charts its first week out. First-week sales were so strong that the animated comedy, which grossed more than $256 million in U.S. theaters alone, outsold its nearest competitor, Universal Studios’ “Lone Survivor,” by a margin of 13 to 1.

Lone Survivor,” a $125 million-grossing actioner with Mark Wahlberg as a Navy Seal who with his team sets out to capture a notorious Taliban leader, has been in stores three weeks. So its distant-No. 2 finish for the week ending June 22 on both the Nielsen VideoScan First Alert Sales chart – which tracks overall disc sales, DVD and Blu-ray Disc combined – and Nielsen’s dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart is not unexpected.

Universal’s “Non-Stop,” a thriller with Liam Neeson as an air marshal aboard a threatened transatlantic flight, slipped to No. 3 on First Alert after bowing at No. 2 the previous week.

The No. 4 spot on First Alert went to a new release from 20th Century Fox, “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” a comedy with Ralph Fiennes as a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel that earned $58.4 million in U.S. theaters.

Rounding out the top five on the overall disc sales chart was “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit,” from Paramount, which debuted at No. 3 the previous week but in terms of total unit sold was No. 1 (thanks to a two-pack, exclusive to Walmart, that VideoScan counted separately).
