Walt Disney Studios topped both national home video sales charts the week ending Nov. 20 with “Finding Dory,” the animated sequel/spinoff to 2003’s “Finding Nemo.”
Bowing at a distant No. 2 was the sixth season of the hot HBO TV Series “Game of Thrones,” which according to NPD research sold 12.3% as many units as “Dory.”
The two new releases pushed Paramount’s “Star Trek Beyond” to the No. 3 spot on both charts from No. 2 the previous week.
Sony Pictures’ quirky “Sausage Party,” the top seller in the previous week, slipped to No. 4 on the NPD VideoScan overall disc sales chart, which tracks combined Blu-ray Disc and DVD sales, and No. 5 on the Blu-ray Disc-only sales chart.
Buoyed by the release of a premium 3D edition, “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” vaulted back up the charts, ending the week at No. 6 on the overall disc sales chart and No. 4 on the Blu-ray Disc sales chart.
Universal Pictures’ “Bad Moms” rounded out the top five on the overall disc sales chart, down from No. 3 the prior week.
According to NPD data, “Finding Dory” generated 70% of its total unit sales from Blu-ray Disc, while “Game of Thrones” generated 55% of its total unit sales from the high-definition version.
The previous week’s top rental, Warner’s “The Legend of Tarzan,” slid to No. 2, while “Central Intelligence,” also from Warner, held steady at No. 3
Rounding out the top five on Home Media Magazine’s rental chart were 20th Century Fox’s “Ice Age: Collision Course” at No. 4 and, debuting at No. 5, Sony Pictures’ “Sausage Party.”
