CAPTAIN AMERICA WHIPS JACK SPARROW

November 3, 2011 by · Leave a Comment 

Paramount Home Entertainment’s Captain America: The First Avenger sent Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides to the plank last week. The Marvel superhero debuted in first place on the DVD and Blu-ray Disc charts, according to Nielsen VideoScan First Alert. According to Home Media magazine, Blu-ray Disc sales for Captain America accounted for 68 percent of the total. The latest Pirates movie fell to No. 2. Somewhat surprisingly, Winnie the Pooh, the low-budget, hand-drawn animated feature from Disney, which had only a brief life in theaters and grossed just $26.7 million, debuted in third place on the sales charts. On the rental chart, Captain America landed in first place, inasmuch as Paramount, unlike several other studios, does not impose a 28-day waiting period on the top renters, Netflix and Redbox.
