A lone cop on a mission of vengence shot down all the competition in home video this week. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Max Payne debuted atop the national DVD sales, rental and Blu-ray sales charts, for the week ending January 25.
The only competition Max Payne faced was from horror's Jigsaw and his latest film, Saw V, which took second place in both DVD sales and rentals in its first week on the shelves. The disc didn't do as well on the Blu-ray charts, though, taking fourth place on the 1080p charts. Last week's top-selling disc, Tyler Perry's The Family That Preys, slipped all the way to sixth place in its second week.
While Max Payne took home the crown for Blu-ray sales, it seems that Batman just won't go away as well. The Dark Knight turned in another amazing showing, taking second place in Blu-ray sales and fourth place in standard DVD sales, almost two months after it first hit the shelves. 30% of The Dark Knight's sales last week were in the Blu-ray format.
