Knocked Up Rules DVD Charts


Universal Home Entertainment sold an estimated 3.5 million copies of Knocked Up for the week ending Sept. 30, sending the comedy straight to No. 1 on the national home video sales chart.

Knocked Up also proved a rental powerhouse, topping Home Media Magazine’s rental chart for the same week with estimated earnings of $10.1 million.

Paramount’s Next debuted at No. 2 on the Nielsen VideoScan First Alert chart but sold a little more than 10% as many copies as Knocked Up. The film fared better in rental stores, generating $6.9 million in its first week out.

The previous week’s top seller and renter, Warner’s We Are Marshall, slipped to No. 3 on both charts.

Knocked Up bowed at No. 1 on the HD DVD chart in its first week out, while Warner’s 300 regained the top spot on the Blu-ray Disc chart. Knocked Up is not available on Blu-ray.
