Date Night DVD and Blu-ray Tops Home Video Charts
Date Night, the comedy starring Steve Carell and Tina Fey, was the easy winner on the home video charts this week with a clean sweep, topping the DVD sales, rentals and Blu-ray sales charts, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
New release Death at a Funeral finished in second place on all three charts and last week's triple-winner Kick-Ass was knocked down to third place on all charts as well. It was a distant second place for Death at a Funeral, though, as it was reported that the Chris Rock comedy only sold 47% as many units as Date Night sold, during the week ending August 15.
Date Night completed a sweep with a win on the Blu-ray sales charts, although the film wasn't exactly a juggernaut in the 1080p format. It was said that only 20% of Date Night's total units sold were in the BD format. Second-place Death at a Funeral fared even worse in the high-def format, with only 15% of its total units sold in Blu-ray. Although it did drop to third place in its second week on the shelves, Kick-Ass is still faring well in high definition, with 41% of its total second-week sales in Blu-ray.
