Justice League Swoops Into #1 Spot On Official Blu-Ray, DVD Sales Chart


The official Justice League Blu-ray is coming in hot.

Data relayed by Variety has revealed that Warner Bros.’ ensemble piece opened at #1 on both the NPD VideoScan overall disc sales chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray unit sales, as well as the dedicated Blu-ray chart. It claimed the crown from Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok, which had clung to the top spot ever since its own home video release earlier this month.

All things considered, it’s still performing overly well, as Variety’s report makes note of the fact that Ragnarok sold 44 percent as many discs in its second week as Justice League did in its first, which, if nothing else, serves us a pointed reminder of the God of Thunder’s continued staying power. News of JL‘s Blu-ray launch also comes hand-in-hand with a slew of never-before-seen photos from the Zack Snyder event movie, the details of which you can find below.

And here’s a rundown of the national home video sales charts for the week ending March 17th:

1. Justice League (new)
2. Thor: Ragnarok
3. Ferdinand (new)
4. Coco
5. The Shape of Water (new)
6. Wonder
7. Call Me By Your Name (new)
8. I, Tonya (new)
9. Murder on the Orient Express (2017)
10. Paw Patrol: Sea Patrol
11. The Disaster Artist (new)
12. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
13. Wonder Woman
14. The Star
15. Darkest Hour
16. Daddy’s Home 2
17. Lady and the Tramp: Signature Collection
18. Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2
19. Jumanji
20. Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs

Justice League was by no means the only newcomer to reach home video, as Oscar heavyweights in the vein of Call Me By Your Name and Guillermo del Toro’s The Shape of Water opened in 5th and 7th, respectively. Further down the pecking order is Wonder Woman, which is still clinging on at 13th.
