EVEN WITH 28-DAY BLACKOUT IN PLACE, AVENGERS IS NO.1 RENTAL

October 11, 2012 by · 1 Comment 

Apparently Redbox purchased so many copies of The Avengers at ordinary retail stores that the movie wound up on Home Media Magazine‘s rental chart at No. 1 even though it will be another two weeks before Disney officially makes the film available at wholesale prices to Netflix or Redbox. Meanwhile The Avengers continued to dominate the Nielsen VideoScan First Alert sales charts for both DVD and Blu-ray Disc releases. No. 2 on the list was the Disney classic Cinderella. The restored print was released on DVD last week and on Blu-ray Disc for the first time. Debuting in third place was Warner Bros.’ Dark Theaters, starring Johnny Depp, which flopped when it was released theatrically earlier this year. Nielsen VideoScan First Alert does not release actual sales figures.
