It took a monster (literally) to unseat a pregnant teenage girl on home video. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Cloverfield stormed onto the shelves and was tops in both DVD sales and rentals for the week ending April 27.
The J.J. Abrams-produced flick bumped last week's dual winner, Juno, down one notch to second place in both sales and rentals.
A few other newcomers made some noise in the top 10 as well, though. Charlie Wilson's War debuted in third place on the sales charts while the horror pic One Missed Call, took the seventh spot in sales.
It was the same 1-2-3 in rentals as it was for sales, with Cloverfield topping the rental biz with $7.5 million, Juno in second with $6.9 million and Charlie Wilson's War in third with $6.7 million. One Missed Call took seventh in rentals as well with $4.7 million.
On the high-def side of the charts, Alien vs. Predator/Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem remained king of Blu-Ray sales, with Juno close behind. Cloverfield wasn't released on Blu-Ray this week.
