Spidey caught DVD consumers in his web for the week ending Nov. 4, when Sony Pictures Home Entertainment’s “Spider-Man 3” easily vaulted to the top of the national DVD sales and rental charts.
The third installment in the hugely successful comic book-inspired film series, which grossed $336.5 million in theaters, easily topped the Nielsen VideoScan First Alert chart in its first week in stores, pushing the previous top seller, DreamWorks/Paramount’s “Transformers,” to No. 2.
Spidey’s pull was so great that a boxed set of all three “Spider-Man” movies debuted at No. 5 despite a $40 price tag.
On Home Media Magazine’s rental chart for the week, “Spider-Man 3” also bowed at No. 1, with estimated revenue of $9.7 million. “Transformers” came in at No. 2 with $7 million — a drop of just 18% from the previous week.
Warner’s “License to Wed,” a romantic comedy starring Robin Williams and Mandy Moore, debuted at No. 4 on First Alert and at No. 5 on the rental chart, with rental earnings of $4.2 million. Disney’s “Meet the Robinsons” remained in high demand in its second week, finishing at No. 3 on First Alert and No. 4 on the rental chart with $5.4 million.
On the high-definition disc charts, “Spider-Man 3” was an easy victor on Blu-ray Disc. On the HD DVD side, “Transformers” remained at No. 1 for the third consecutive week. Both titles are available only in their respective formats.
