Dis replays its winning 'Game Plan'

Empty

In a slow week for new releases, the top two DVD sellers from the previous week, Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment's "The Game Plan" and Lionsgate's "Saw IV," again topped the Nielsen VideoScan First Alert sales chart for the week ending Feb. 3.

The top-ranking newcomer was Warner's "The Invasion" at No. 3, a remake of the sci-fi classic "Invasion of the Body Snatchers," which despite featuring Nicole Kidman in the lead role grossed a miserly $15.7 million in theaters.

"Invasion" also was the top-renting new release of the week, bowing at No. 4 on Home Media Magazine's video rental chart with estimated revenue of $6.2 million.

The top three renters remain unchanged: "Game Plan" came in at No. 1 in its sophomore week, while Lionsgate held down the next two berths with "Good Luck Chuck" and "Saw IV."

After two weeks in release, "Game Plan" has generated $18.7 million in rental revenue, or 21% of its theatrical gross. "Good Luck Chuck" has returned $27.7 million, or 79% of its boxoffice receipts, while "Saw IV" has made $15 million, 24% of its gross.

On the high-definition disc front, Lionsgate's "3:10 to Yuma" was the top-selling Blu-ray Disc for the week ending Feb. 3, while Paramount's "Transformers" was the top-selling HD DVD title.

The top-selling HD release for the week was Warner/BBC's "Planet Earth: The Complete Collection," available on both Blu-ray Disc and HD DVD.
