Crashers Strong in Second Week


DreamWorks Home Entertainment’s Red Eye and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment’s Transporter 2, debuted at the Nos. 1 and 2 positions on the home video rental chart their first week in stores.

But neither packed enough punch to unseat New Line’s Wedding Crashers from the top spot on the preliminary national DVD sales chart, says The Hollywood Reporter.

“Crashers” remained at No. 1 on VideoScan’s First Alert chart for the week ending Jan. 15, narrowly outselling second-place finisher Transporter 2, which generated $43.1 million in theaters. Red Eye finished a distant third, despite a higher boxoffice take of $57.9 million.

Paramount’s Hustle & Flow debuted at No. 4, while Universal’s The Constant Gardener entered the sales chart at No. 5.

On Home Media Retailing’s video rental chart for the week ending Jan. 15, Red Eye was the top renter, generating an estimated $10.8 million in revenue. Transporter 2 was close behind with rental earnings pegged at $10.4 million, while “Crashers” added another $10.1 million in rental revenue to its credits.
