"American Gangster" concerns Harlem drug kingpin Frank Lucas (Washington), who smuggled heroin in the body bags of U.S. soldiers slain in Vietnam. Brolin plays Det. Trupo, a crooked NYPD cop who piggybacks on the Lucas investigation conducted by Det. Ritchie Roberts (Crowe).

God damn it feels good to be a gangster. American Gangster swept both the DVD sales and rental charts for the week ending February 24. The Denzel Washington epic was considered the first major DVD release of the year, and it delivered, selling an estimated 4 million units in its first week.

American Gangster and Michael Clayton finished 1-2 on the rental charts as well, with American Gangster taking in $9.7 million in rental revenue while Michael Clayton took in a solid $8.2 million in rentals. Last week's top rental, Gone Baby Gone, slid to third place.Read More
