‘Prince Caspian’ Tops DVD Sales Last Week
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.
