That’s ‘Incredibles’: Disney Powers Video Charts

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) – 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment’s “Fat Albert” moved 1 million DVD and VHS units on Tuesday, its first day of release, according to industry sources. But for the week ending Sunday it was the Walt Disney Co.’s Buena Vista Home Entertainment that dominated the video sales charts.

The Disney-Pixar release “The Incredibles” is on top of the Nielsen VideoScan First Alert DVD chart, with BVHE’s “Ladder 49” second and “Bambi” third.

DreamWorks’ “Shark Tale” moved to the fourth slot on the chart, followed by Paramount Home Entertainment’s “The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie,” giving four of the five top spots to animated films.

While PHE’s “Alfie” debuted at a respectable No. 7 on the First Alert DVD list, its rentals have been impressive enough to claim the second spot on the Home Media Retailing magazine list of top rentals.

“Flight of the Phoenix” was the fourth-best rental in the week ending Sunday. In less than 20 days, the movie earned $21.2 million, slightly more than it took in at the theatrical boxoffice, according to Home Media Retailing.

Meanwhile, though sales of “Shrek” and “Shrek 2” have fallen out of the top 50 DVD list, the titles remain in the top 50 for VHS sales, according to VideoScan data for the week ending March 12.

According to DreamWorks, “Shrek” surpassed 49 million DVD and VHS sales and “Shrek 2” is marching toward 55 million units worldwide. When it gets there, as CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg expects it to, it will become the third-biggest seller, behind Disney’s “The Lion King” and PHE’s release of “Titanic.”
