The Chronicles of Narnia Tops DVD Charts

By Brian B. — April 13th, 2006

Buena Vista Home Entertainment's The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe easily topped the national DVD sales chart for the week ending April 9, while the previous week's top seller, Universal Studios' King Kong, remained perched in the No. 1 slot on the video rental chart for the second consecutive week.

With first-day sales pegged at 4 million units, Narnia didn't have much competition for First Alert dominance, says The Hollywood Reporter. Brokeback Mountain, another Universal title, finished a distant second its first week in stores, barely outselling third-ranked Kong, which was still in high demand during its sophomore week out. Universal said Brokeback Mountain sold 1.4 million DVDs its first day in stores.
