'Bounty Hunter' tops home video charts

Jennifer Aniston comedy debuts at No. 1 in sales, rentals

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment's "The Bounty Hunter" scored an easy victory on all three national home video charts the week ending July 18.

The latest Jennifer Aniston comedy, which grossed $67 million in U.S. theaters, debuted at No. 1 on the Nielsen VideoScan First Alert sales chart, the Home Media Magazine rental chart and Nielsen's dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart.

The film's biggest margin of victory came on the sales front. In overall disc sales, "Bounty Hunter" sold nearly three times as many copies as another new theatrical release, 20th Century Fox's comedy "Our Family Wedding" ($20.3 million boxoffice), which debuted on the chart at No. 2.

The previous week's top seller, Anchor Bay's "Brooklyn's Finest," slipped to No. 5, right behind a pair of 3-week-old releases, 20th Century Fox's "Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief" at No. 3 and Fox/MGM's "Hot Tub Time Machine" at No. 4.

On the Blu-ray Disc sales chart, "Bounty Hunter" scored an even more impressive victory, selling nearly four times as many copies as "Our Family Wedding," which debuted at No. 8. "Avatar" was the week's No. 2 Blu-ray Disc seller, rebounding from No. 4 the previous week.

And on Home Media Magazine's rental chart, "Our Family Wedding" debuted at No. 4, behind "Brooklyn's Finest" (No. 2) and "Percy Jackson" (No. 3), with 47% as many rental transactions as top-ranked "Bounty Hunter."
