Black Panther Surpasses The Last Jedi In USA as Top Blu-ray of 2018 So Far

Black Panther has surpassed Star Wars: The Last Jedi as the best-selling Blu-ray disc in the USA, selling more units than The Last Jedi which was reported last week as the top-selling Blu-ray of 2018 so far.

As revealed by The-Numbers, Black Panther has sold more than 3,912,932 units and exceeded more than $82.2 million in sales since its May 15 release. That puts Black Panther ahead of The Last Jedi, released two months earlier on March 27, which has earned $84.9 million with 3,896,015 units sold.

Worldwide, The Last Jedi still holds the top spot at 3,024,845 units sold at $69.5 million to Black Panther’s 2,654,015 units with $59.9 million. Avengers: Infinity War, which emerged as the highest-grossing movie of 2018 with a $2.046 billion worldwide haul, has yet to rank on the list since its August 14 disc debut.

We’ll continue to watch the charts for 2018 and beyond, and it will be interesting to see how Solo: A Star Wars Story tracks when it’s released on Blu-ray later this month.
