Sony Pictures Home Entertainment’s Spider-Man 2 led home video sales last week, capturing the No. 1 slot on both Nielsen VideoScan’s First Alert DVD and VHS sales weekly charts, says The Hollywood Reporter. The sequel has sold through more than 8 million combined DVD and VHS units during its first week on retail shelves. The film also was the nation’s top rental title during the same frame, generating about $14.5 million in rental revenue.
Buena Vista Home Entertainment’s Hero debuted at No. 2 on VideoScan’s First Alert DVD sales chart and generated about $5 million in rental revenue after its first five days in release.
Meanwhile, The Bourne Supremacy sold through to consumers about 2.5 million combined DVD and VHS units during its first day on retail shelves Tuesday.
Perhaps more surprising is Day 1 sales for Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story, which sold about 2.1 million combined DVD and VHS units Tuesday, its first day on retail shelves.
