“Bear 2” claws way to top of DVD sales

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) – In another triumph for direct-to-video sequels to its animated theatrical features, Disney has topped the latest DVD sales chart with "Brother Bear 2," according to sales data issued Wednesday.


It's the second direct-to-video winner for Disney in 2006; "Bambi 2" came out in February and still ranks among the top 10 DVD sellers of the year.

The Michael Douglas crime thriller "The Sentinel" overcame a meager $36.3 million theatrical run to open at No. 2 during the week ended September 3. The Antonio Bandera dance drama "Take the Lead," which grossed $34.7 million on the big screen, debuted at No. 3.

But "The Sentinel" did lead trade publication Home Media Retailing's video rental chart for the same week. It generated an estimated $8.3 million in rental spending to $7.9 million for second-ranked "Take the Lead."

The previous week's sales champ, "Silent Hill," fell to No. 6. Rentals champ "Poseidon" slipped to No. 3 with an estimated $6.7 million in rental spending; its two-week total stands at $15.1 million.
