PreciousFour high-profile theatrical releases debuted on DVD this past week, but only one came out on top of the DVD sales charts. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Precious took the top spot on the DVD sales charts in its first week on the shelves, although the rest of the charts were spread out amongst other competitors.
Fellow new release The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day had a fine showing on the charts in its first week, taking second place in DVD sales and locking up first place on the Blu-ray sales charts. It was a close race on the DVD charts as well, with The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day selling just 18% fewer copies than Precious did. 2012 held the top spot on the rental charts once again.
Other new releases included Disney's Old Dogs, which took third place on the DVD sales charts and 10th on the rental charts and Jason Reitman's Best Picture nominee Up in the Air, which took second place on the rental charts.
