National Treasure Reigns a Second Week


Buena Vista Home Entertainment’s National Treasure remained at No. 1 on both VideoScan’s First Alert sales chart and Home Media Retailing’s rental chart for the week ending May 15.

The Nicolas Cage action-adventure generated an additional $8.37 million to bring its total rental take to nearly $20 million.

The film also took command of the national DVD sales chart for the week ending May 7 but failed to oust Paramount Home Entertainment’s Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events from the top spot on the VHS chart, where it reigned for the second straight week.
