'Into You' tops video charts

'Defiance' debuts at No. 2; 'Paul Blart' finishes third

People are really into "He's Just Not That Into You," the comedy from Warner Home Video that grossed $93.9 million in U.S. theaters earlier this year.

The film debuted at No. 1 on the national home video sales as well as rental charts the week ending June 7, at a time when high-profile theatricals are few and far between and studios are filling the gap with DVD and Blu-ray Disc editions of popular TV shows.

On the Nielsen VideoScan First Alert sales chart, "Into You" was followed at No. 2 by fellow newcomer "Defiance," a drama from Paramount with a domestic boxoffice gross of just $28.6 million.

The third spot on the sales chart went to Season 4 of the popular TV series "Weeds," from Lionsgate. Other TV season sets that scored high in the sales department were Season 1 of the HBO series "True Blood," which in its third week in stores held fast at No. 12, and Season 4 of "Prison Break," from 20th Century Fox, which debuted at No. 13.

On Home Media Magazine's rental chart for the week, "Into You" and "Defiance" also scored a one-two finish, bumping to No. 3 Sony Pictures' "Paul Blart: Mall Cop," which spent the two previous week's at No. 1.

20th Century Fox's "Taken" slipped to No. 4 from No. 2, while the fifth spot went to another Paramount drama, "Revolutionary Road," which generated only $22.9 million in theaters even though its two leads are Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet.

"Revolutionary Road" debuted at No. 6 on First Alert, behind "Paul Blart: Mall Cop" at No. 4 and "Taken" at No. 5.
