LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) – "Sex and the City 2" followed its predecessor to the top of the national DVD sales chart during its first week in stores, according to data issued Wednesday.
The sequel, which stalled at $95 million at the domestic box office, ended the two-week reign of "How to Train Your Dragon." The cartoon slipped to No. 2 on the Nielsen VideoScan sales chart for the week ending October 31.
Even though just 18% of "Sex and the City 2's" opening tally came from the Blu-ray Disc format, the film managed to lead Nielsen VideoScan's dedicated Blu-ray Disc chart.
Finishing a close second on the Blu-ray Disc chart was the "Back to the Future: 25th Anniversary Trilogy," despite a hefty list price tag of nearly $80. The trilogy also debuted at No. 5 on the overall sales chart, behind "Predators" at No. 3 and "The Girl Who Played With Fire" at No. 4.
"How to Train Your Dragon" led trade publication Home Media Magazine's rental chart for a second consecutive week. "Sex and the City 2" -- not yet available at Netflix and Redbox, which have a combined share of about 60% of the rental market -- debuted at No. 10 on the rental chart.
