It was a week for exploring as a family film sailed to the top of the DVD sales and rental charts this past week. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Nim's Island topped the DVD sales and rental charts for the week ending August 10. Nim's Island bested last week's top seller, Harold and Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay by a three-to-one margin.
There wasn't much competition from other newcomers, with just one other major release in the straight-to-DVD Starship Troopers 3: Marauder, which finished fifth in sales and 12th in rentals.
On the rental side, Nim's Island took the top spot away from last week's winner, 21, which slipped to second place while Harold and Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay came in third in rentals.
In 1080p news, Batman Begins, still riding the wave of theatrical success from its sequel, The Dark Knight, took the top Blu-Ray sales spot away from last week's winner, Stargate: Continuum, which came in sixth place in BD sales. Nim's Island finished in third place on the BD charts behind 21.
