10,000 B.C. Clobbers DVD Competition
It was a good week to go prehistoric in home video. According to The Hollywood Reporter, 10,000 B.C. destroyed the competition in DVD sales, rentals and high-definition, beating out three new releases, for the week ending June 29.
The Roland Emmerich-directed 10,000 B.C. sold around 25% more than its nearest competition, fellow newcomer The Spiderwick Chronicles, which took second in sales and third in rentals. Fool's Gold, last week's top rental, slipped to second place this week.
Two more newcomers debuted nicely with the romantic comedy Definitely, Maybe taking the third spot in sales and sixth in rentals and the straight-to-DVD release Futurama: The Beast with a Billion Backs snapped up sixth place on the sales chart, particularly strong for a straight-to-video title.
