Disney is having a great year.
In a story from The Hollywood Reporter, Nielsen VideoScan's First Alert Chart reports that Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest sold 10.5 million units to take the No. 1 spot in sales last week. Not surprisingly, it was also tops on Home Media Magazine's video rental chart.
As you may recall, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest also sold 1.5 million copies in it's first week of release in the UK. In Japan, the title moved another 1 million copies to make it "the No. 1 live-action movie of all time in that country."
Due to brisk sales stateside, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest is on track to become the No. 1 live-action DVD ever. Currently, that title belongs to Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl.
On the rest of the First Alert sales chart....
Miami Vice took the No. 2 position while Superman Returns fell to No. 3. Cars moved into the No. 4 slot while Ice Age: The Meltdown thawed into No. 5.
