WONDER WOMAN 1984 Was 2021's Highest-Selling Movie On DVD And Blu-ray

Despite a mixed response from fans and critics alike, Wonder Woman 1984 ended up selling a huge number of DVDs and Blu-rays in 2021, and it beat some surprising titles to that top spot. Check it out...

Wonder Woman 1984 initially debuted to positive reviews, but for whatever reason, the narrative changed as more verdicts were counted and the sequel went from being "Certified Fresh" to Rotten. The majority of critics just didn't seem to like it, a sentiment that was also shared by many comic book fans. 

Controversially, the Wonder Woman follow-up was released on HBO Max the same day it debuted in theaters. In the midst of the pandemic, however, Warner Bros. had the choice of either doing that or delaying the blockbuster for the umpteenth time. 

Neither the critical response nor Wonder Woman 1984's availability on streaming dented its performance on DVD and Blu-ray, though. According to The Numbers, the DC Comics adaptation sold 1,427,182 units (608,686 DVDs and 818,496 Blu-Rays) for a haul of $34,450,146 in total consumer spending in 2021. The movie was also a hit for HBO Max when it debuted there Christmas Day, 2020.

As you can see below, Wonder Woman 1984 beat a lot of big movies to take the top spot, though it was a weird year for Blu-ray releases as many major films didn't start coming out in theaters until late summer. As a result, only a handful of titles were ready for home entertainment debuts in time for Christmas, and it will be interesting to see which movies dominate this chart throughout 2022.

1. Wonder Woman 1984
