Transformers Rule DVD Charts Again


Paramount Home Entertainment’s DVD release of DreamWorks’ Transformers remained at the top of both the national sales and rental charts for a second consecutive week.

On the Nielsen VideoScan First Alert chart for the week ending Oct. 28, Transformers beat back a strong challenge from Walt Disney Studios’ Meet the Robinsons, which debuted at No. 2.

Two other new releases finished third and fourth for the week, respectively: MGM’s Mr. Brooks and Sony Pictures’ Hostel 2. Disney’s “Jungle Book” remained at No. 5.

HBO’s “The Sopranos: Season 6 Part 2,” the final installment in the mob drama’s hugely successful initial DVD run, bowed at No. 8

On Home Media Magazine’s rental chart, Transformers posted a revenue drop of just 14% from the previous week to remain at No. 1, with $8.6 million in revenue. Mr. Brooks came in at No. 2, with rental earnings of $7.4 million, while Meet the Robinsons came in at No. 3, with $6.5 million.
