Walk the Line Dominates the DVD Charts

ON

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.
