The Book of EliDespite three new releases hitting the home video shelves this past week, last week's apocalyptic winner still remained on top. According to The Hollywood Reporter, The Book of Eli repeated as the top-selling DVD and Blu-ray for the second week in a row.
The Denzel Washington release managed to hold off stiff competition from the Matt Damon new release Green Zone, which took a close second place on the DVD sales charts. It was said that Green Zone sold 90% of the units that The Book of Eli sold in its second week on the shelves. Green Zone did come away with a win on the DVD rental charts, knocking The Book of Eli down to second place in rentals.
Two other notable new releases hit the shelves this week as well, with the Robert Pattinson non-vampire romance Remember Me taking fourth place in DVD sales and third place in DVD rentals and the Jay Baruchel comedy She's Out of My League landing in ninth place on the DVD sales charts and sixth place on the rental charts.
The theatrical release of Toy Story 3 also propelled its predecessors back onto the home video charts as well. Toy Story took fifth place in DVD sales and fourth place in Blu-ray sales while Toy Story 2 took third place in both DVD and BD sales charts.
