Guess Who Beat Alexander ?


Sony Pictures Home Entertainment’s Guess Who topped the preliminary national sales chart for the week ending Aug. 7, with Oliver Stone’s Alexander coming in a distant second. The latter was released in two versions, a Special Edition and a Director’s Cut.

Guess Who was also the week’s top renter, but not by much. Guess Who grossed $9.54 million in rental stores, just slightly better than second-place finisher Alexander, which earned $9.22 million.

Sony’s “Ghostbusters Gift Set” entered the sales chart at No. 5, and Paramount’s The High and the Mighty debuted at No. 8.
