Narnia Remains Hottest Seller


Buena Vista Home Entertainment’s The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe remained the top-selling DVD for the second consecutive week, according to figures for the week ending April 16.

Sony Pictures’ Fun With Dick and Jane debuted a distant second on VideoScan’s First Alert DVD sales chart, moving fewer than half as many units its first week in stores as the Disney title.

Fun With Dick and Jane did, however, wrangle a first-place finish on Home Media Retailing’s video rental chart for the week, generating an estimated $7.2 million.

Universal Studios’ King Kong, meanwhile, is showing surprisingly long legs. Three weeks after its release, the film held steady at No. 3 on First Alert and slipped one notch to No. 2 on the rental chart, earning another $5.9 million to boost its total rental take to nearly $20 million.
