A DVD Not Yet Departed

By ON

Warner Home Video’s multiple Oscar winner The Departed returned to the top spot on the national DVD sales chart the week ending March 4, bumping Paramount/DreamWorks’ Flushed Away, the previous week’s top seller, to No. 2.

Sony Pictures’ Stranger Than Fiction could only muster a third-place debut on Nielsen VideoScan’s First Alert chart. The film did snag a first-place bow on Home Media Magazine’s video rental chart for the week, generating an estimated $6.8 million in revenue.

The Departed held fast at No. 2, earning an additional $6.6 million to bring its total rental earnings, after three weeks, to $25 million, or nearly 20% of its $129.4 theatrical take.

New Line’s Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny bowed at No. 6 on First Alert and No. 10 on the rental chart, while 20th Century Fox’s A Good Year debuted at No. 8 on both the DVD sales and rental charts.
