Projections: 'Zootopia' Looking at Big Disc Debut

13 Jun, 2016 By: John Latchem

Disney's Zootopia is looking to top the home video sales charts by a wide margin the week ending June 12. The studio's latest animated blockbuster is coming off a $1 billion run at the box office ($338.2 million domestically).

Also expected to deliver a strong debut is Paramount's war drama 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi, from director Michael Bay. The film underperformed at the box office with $52.85 million domestically, but arrives on disc backed by considerable buzz and a story directly tied to the current election cycle.

Another newcomer likely to debut further down the charts is Universal's latest Coen brothers comedy, Hail, Caesar!, a tale of Hollywood in the 1950s, which earned $30 million at the U.S. box office.

Holdovers looking to continue to impact the charts include Fox's Deadpool and Lionsgate's Gods of Egypt, the top titles the previous two weeks.

On the rental chart, Deadpool should move into the top spot after coming off a 28-day holdback at Redbox kiosks. With Zootopia rental copies limited by Disney's lack of a distribution agreement with Redbox, 13 Hours is the most likely bet for the No. 2 rental spot, with Gods of Egypt dropping to No. 3.
