The top three titles were unchanged from a week earlier on the NPD VideoScan First Alert Sales Chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc unit sales, and the dedicated Blu-ray Disc chart the week ended Sept. 9, led by Disney's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 topping the charts for a third consecutive week.

No. 5 on the overall chart was another newcomer, Lionsgate's All Eyez on Me, a biopic about rapper Tupac Shakur that earned $44.9 million at the domestic box office. All Eyez was the No. 10 Blu-ray for the week.
On the Blu-ray Disc chart, No. 5 was Fox's Alien: Covenant, which was No. 6 overall.
Sony Pictures' comedy Rough Night debuted at No. 7 overall and No. 6 on the Blu-ray chart.
On Home Media Magazine's rental chart for the week ended Sept. 10, Baywatch was No. 1 for the second consecutive week, followed by Rough Night at No. 2.
