According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment's superhero sequel Spider-Man 2 sold more than 6 million combined DVD and VHS units during its first day on retail shelves across the country, according to industry sources. That Day 1 sales figure doesn't set any records, but the holiday gift-buying season should bode well for the Sam Raimi sequel, which is expected to get a boost in retail sales before Christmas.

Sony's TV-to-DVD release of Seinfeld: Season 1 & 2 debuted at No. 4 on Nielsen VideoScan's First Alert DVD sales chart for the week ending Nov. 28, while Seinfeld: Season 3 entered the chart at No. 8. Meanwhile, Warner Home Video's fall boxoffice smash Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban was last week's top-selling DVD and VHS and was the nation's second-best rental title, according to VideoScan and Video Store magazine charts, respectively.
