Race to Witch MountainRace to Witch Mountain raced to the top of the home video sales chart during the week ending August 9th. This reimagining of the classic 1975 Disney film Escape to Witch Mountain grossed $67.21 in theaters, and has now nabbed the number one sales position for its first week in stores. Coming in on its heels was the Beyonce Knowles thriller Obsessed, which only sold 72% as many copies as Disney's Dwayne Johnson adventure.
Things were flip-flopped on the rental charts, though. Obsessed came in number one amongst renters, with Race to Witch Mountain falling into the number two spot with only 78% as many rentals. Fast & Furious, last week's number one seller and renter, fell into third place on both charts.
Next week sees the release of Last House on the Left [WS] [Unrated/Rated Versions] and Hannah Montana: The Movie. Who will win the race to the top of the charts next week? That's anybody's guess.
