REAL STEEL STEALS HOME VIDEO SHOW
Disney’s Real Steel, an enormous hit at the worldwide box office last year, with nearly $300 million in ticket sales (thanks largely to an overseas gross of $210 million), arrived on home video last week with another show of strength — debuting at No. 1 on all three major charts: standard DVD sales, Blu-ray Disc sales, and total rentals. Home Media magazine said that it dominated the sales chart, earning five times the revenue of the No. 2 film, the Summit Entertainment “cancer comedy” 50/50, which managed to take in only $35 million at the domestic box office. 50/50 also placed second on the Blu-ray Disc sales chart and on Home Media‘s rental chart.
