Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Continues to Dominate Home Video Sales


Nothing can keep Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice from continuing to be a major success for Warner Bros., as the second film in the DC Extended Universe has topped the Blu-Ray/DVD video sales chart for the fourth week in a row.

According to Home Media Magazine, with the limited amount of new releases Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice has gone to #1 yet again as of August 14th at 58% sales. This is based on a NPD VideoScan’s overall disc sales chart for the fourth consecutive week.

What’s also interesting is Batman: The Killing Joke also came in high at #2 for the second week in a row at 55%. The Killing Joke has also had a successful run when it became the highest grossing film hosted by Fathom Events even before it was released on home video at #1.

Both films were met with mixed reaction from both critics and fans, but with the recent success of Suicide Squad, which just reached $509 million in the worldwide box office, it looks as though many fans have shown renewed interest in the two previous Batman films.
