According to HollywoodReporter.com, Prince Caspian was the top selling DVD last week when it was released to the American market.
Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment’s “The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian” was the top-selling DVD during the week ending Dec. 7, but not without a fierce challenge from the Universal Studios actioner “Wanted.”
The films had similar domestic boxoffice earnings — $141.6 million for the “Narnia” sequel and $134.3 million for “Wanted” — but the former came to DVD with an edge for sales as a PG-rated family fantasy.
“Wanted” debuted at No. 2 on the First Alert sales chart but captured the top spot on Home Media Magazine’s rental chart for the week. A third new release, the Sony Pictures comedy “Step Brothers,” debuted as the week’s No. 2 renter, bumping the previous week’s top renter, Sony’s “Hancock,” to No. 3. “Narnia” debuted at No. 4 on the rental chart.
On the Nielsen VideoScan Blu-ray Disc sales chart, “Wanted” easily took the top spot during its first week in stores, outselling “Narnia” by a margin of more than 2-to-1.
