'Harry Potter' Stays Put at Top of Home Entertainment Charts
"Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides," "The Lion King" and "Cars 2" snag the next slots for DVD sales list.
Warner Home Video’s Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 remained the top-selling DVD and Blu-ray Disc for the second consecutive week, topping both the Nielsen VideoScan First Alert overall sales chart and the dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart.
A trio of Walt Disney Studios titles took the next three spots on the overall sales chart for the week ending Nov. 20, as the holiday gift-buying season shifted into high gear with various Disney-themed promotions at top retailers, including Target stores. Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides shot back up to No. 2 from No. 12 after five weeks in stores. The Lion King, in its seventh week in stores, shot to No. 3 from No. 19 the previous week. And Cars 2, the newest release of the bunch, remained in the top 5, slipping to No. 4 from No. 2.
On Nielsen’s Blu-ray Disc chart, it was Potter-mania all the way, with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I moving up a notch to No. 2 and the complete eight-film collection rising to No. 3 from No. 8 the previous week.
On Home Media Magazine’s weekly rental chart, Pirates shot to No. 1 from No. 86 now that its 28-day holdback from Netflix and Redbox is over. The No. 2 spot went to Warner’s Horrible Bosses.
The previous week’s top renter, Paramount’s Captain America: The First Avenger, slipped to No. 5, right behind Cars 2, which moved up two spots to No. 4.
