‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ Easily Tops DVD, Blu-ray Disc Sales Charts

Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment’s “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” debuted atop the national home video sales charts by a wide margin the week ended March 31.

The eighth numbered installment of the “Star Wars” saga and the ninth live-action film in the franchise took in $620 million at the domestic box office and $1.33 billion worldwide — making it the top earner released in 2017. The Rian Johnson-directed film easily took the No. 1 spot on both the Npd VideoScan overall disc sales chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc unit sales, and the dedicated Blu-ray Disc chart.

Dropping to No. 2 on both charts in its second week, after debuting in the top spot a week earlier, was Sony Pictures’ “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle,” which sold 29% as many copies as Last Jedi during the week.

Disney’s “Coco,” in its fifth week, moved up a slot to No. 3 on both charts.

First Trailer for Action Thriller 'Acts of Violence' Starring Bruce Willis

"Can't go around kicking in doors." Lionsgate has released the first trailer for an action thriller titled Acts of Violence, yet another instantly-forgettable B-movie from nowhere starring the formerly-great Bruce Willis.

The plot focuses on three Midwestern brothers, a crime lord, and Willis' cop, who are all on a deadly collision course when the youngest brother’s fiancée is kidnapped by human traffickers.
