Arachnophilia returned to the home video market last week as Sony’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 arrived, claiming the No. 1 spot in DVD and Blu-ray Disc sales. The Nielsen VideoScan First Alert chart put Lionsgate’s Divergent at a distant No. 2 with just 15 percent as many DVD sales as the Spider-Man sequel and only 9 percent as many Blu-ray Discs. It had held the top spot over the previous two weeks. (The chart does not specify actual sales figures.) Both films also finished in the first two positions of Home Media magazine’s rental chart. The top five sellers also included God’s Not Dead, the faith-based feature from Cinedigm/Pure Flix, at No. 3; Toy Story of Terror!, a 22-minute Halloween feature from Disney, at No. 4; and Disney’s Muppets Most Wanted at No. 5.
