I checked the DVD on Amazon (the online company ;-) ) and the 2016 film has a 4.3 / 5 rating and those who know the books generally disliked it and those who did not really quite enjoyed it.

For example:
5.0 out of 5 stars
We did not read the novel
Reviewed in the United States on July 22, 2019
I looked at the 1 star reviews to find that the movie only loosely follows the book. I understand their dismay as it has happened to us. However, we came from a blank slate with no anticipations. As parents, we found the movie extremely tolerable and enjoyable. The movie was without need for parental guidance, clean, and exciting. 5 stars for someone without specific expectations.

I couldn't find sales figures though.
