Spider-Man: Homecoming just scored a big – if easily predictable – victory this week, as the first standalone movie of the character set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe easily aced the competition when it came to DVD and Blu-Ray sales.
Variety shared a chart released by Nielsen’s Top 20 NPD VideoScan First Alert, which describes how movies have sold on home video formats in the past week, and the new arrival of Spider-Man led the pack. Just to establish how big of a hit the movie was on Blu-Ray, the second-best-seller for the week (Girls Trip, also a new release) got a mere 22% of the total Blu-Ray sales that the superhero movie had. NPD’s research indicates that 79% of the Webslinger’s first-week sales came from people buying the Blu-Ray Disc, with an additional 13% of that total coming from people who got the Ultra HD Blu-Ray Disc. Spider-Man also topped rental sales, according to Home Media Magazine.
Other notable movies that sold well this week were 1993’s Halloween cult classic Hocus Pocus, along with Summer blockbusters Pirates of the Carribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, Baby Driver, Wonder Woman, and Transformers: The Last Knight.
Spider-Man: Homecoming is now available on home video formats. The film features a cast that includes Tom Holland as Peter Parker (Spider-Man), Robert Downey Junior as Tony Stark (Iron Man), Zendaya Coleman as Michelle, Jacob Batalon as Ned Leeds, Tony Revolori as “Flash” Thompson, Laura Harrier as Liz Allan, Marisa Tomei as May Parker, Jon Favreau as Harold “Happy” Hogan, Donald Glover as Aaron Davis, Michael Keaton as Adrian Toomes (Vulture), Bokeem Woodbine as Herman Schultz (Shocker), Michael Chernus as Phineas Mason (Tinkerer), and Michael Mando as Mac Gargan.
