‘Spider-man 2’, ‘The Bourne Supremacy’ and ‘Dodgeball’ lead the DVD charts

According to The Hollywood Reporter, The Bourne Supremacy, starring Matt Damon, sold through to consumers about 2.5 million combined DVD and VHS units during its first day on retail shelves Tuesday, according to industry sources.

Perhaps more surprising is Day 1 sales for Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story, which sold about 2.1 million combined DVD and VHS units Tuesday, its first day on retail shelves, according to executives at 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment.
