Could it be that all of the blowback for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, be coming from a very vocal minority? According to the latest DVD and Blu-ray sales, it seems to be true. The second ranked movie on the list, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, sold only 29% of the totals for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Granted this is was the first week of release, but it seems the “Force” is still strong with Star Wars.
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.
