Saw Opens Big Its First Day


Lions Gate Home Entertainment horror film Saw grossed an estimated $20 million during its first day on home video Tuesday. The film is expected to surpass its domestic box office haul of $55 million during its first week in release on home video.

In the week ended February 13, DreamWorks’ Shark Tale dominated both DVD and VHS sales. The animated film grossed more than $80 million during its first week on home video, far surpassing the $56 million it hauled in during its first weekend.

Shark Tale was the nation’s second-best-renting home video during the same frame, generating an estimated $8.25 million in consumer rental spending alone.

New Line’s The Notebook was the No. 1 rental, with an estimated $8.76 million.
