Johnny Cash drama Walk the Line took the top spot on the DVD sales and rental charts for the week ending March 5, easily beating a slate of high-profile competitors, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The 20th Century Fox release outsold Disney’s second-ranked Lady and the Tramp by a nearly 2-to-1 margin on VideoScan’s First Alert charts.
Walk the Line, starring Best Actress Oscar winner Reese Witherspoon, also was a big hit in rental stores, generating an estimated $9.2 million in revenue during its first week. That’s nearly 50% more than second-ranked Yours, Mine & Ours, a family comedy that came to video after a respectable $53.4 million theatrical run.
Paramount’s Yours, Mine & Ours debuted at No. 4 on the DVD sales chart, while the previous week’s top seller, Sony’s Rent, slipped to No. 5. Universal’s Pride & Prejudice debuted at No. 3, ahead of fellow newcomers Ice Harvest at No. 6 and the complete fourth season of Charmed at No. 12.
