Despicable Me 3

Universal Pictures' Despicable Me 3 held off a pair of strong newcomers to maintain the top spot on the home video sales charts the week ended Dec. 16.

The animated film had debuted at No. 1 a week earlier on the NPD VideoScan First Alert sales chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc unit sales, as well as the dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart.

No. 2 on both charts was 20th Century Fox's Kingsman: The Golden Circle, which sold 80.6% as many total copies as Despicable Me 3, and 86% as many Blu-rays. The action sequel earned $100.2 million at the domestic box office.

HBO's Game of Thrones: The Complete Seventh Season debuted at No. 3 on both charts, selling 58.2% as many units as the top title.

Disney's Cars 3, in its sixth week on disc, was No. 4 on both charts.

No. 5 overall was Warner's Elf, while Warner's Wonder Woman was the No. 5 Blu-ray.

Blu-ray disc accounted for 67% of Kinsgman: The Golden Circle sales and 54% of "Game of Thrones" sales.

On Home Media Magazine's rental chart for the week ended Dec. 17, Universal's Atomic Blonde moved up to No. 1 after a month-long holdback at Redbox kiosks. Lionsgate's American Assassin dropped a spot to No. 2, while The Hitman's Bodyguard, also from Lionsgate, rose a spot to No. 3.

Rounding out the top five were two films from Universal Pictures: Logan Lucky at No. 4 and Kidnap at No. 5.
