Buena Vista Home Entertainment thriller Flightplan, starring Jodie Foster, topped both the national DVD sales and rental charts for the week ending January 29.
Flightplan easily topped VideoScan’s First Alert DVD sales chart its first week in stores, beating second-ranked The Fog, Sony Pictures’ remake of the original 1980 John Carpenter film, by a three-to-one margin.
The only other newcomer to First Alert’s top 20 was Lionsgate’s The Aristocrats, which debuted at No. 9.
New Line’s The Wedding Crashers remains berthed at No. 3 after four weeks in stores, while Universal Studios’ The 40-Year-Old Virgin, after seven weeks out, is still in the top 10 and in fact moved up two spots, to No. 7 from No. 9 the previous week.
On Home Media Retailing’s DVD rental chart for the week ending January 29, Flightplan easily coasted to a first-place finish, generating an estimated $10.7 million in revenue, or nearly 12% of its boxoffice gross.
