Warner Bros.’ Edge of Tomorrow, which cost $178 million to produce but earned just $100 million domestically, debuted at No. 1 on the home video sales charts for last week. The movie, which was a hit overseas with $269 million in ticket sales, claimed the top spot on both Nielsen VideoScan First Alert’s DVD chart and its Blu-ray Disc chart. Actual sales figures are not disclosed on the charts. The previous week’s No. 1 film, Paramount’s Transformers: Age of Extinction, slipped to No. 2. Somewhat surprisingly a "Diamond Edition" of Disney’s 1959 animated classic Sleeping Beauty came in at No. 3. Two newcomers rounded out the top five, Universal’s A Million Ways to Die in the West and Disney’s Million Dollar Arm. On Home Media magazine’s rental chart, Transformers: Age of Extinction remained at No. 1 for the second consecutive week, while 20th Century Fox’s Brick Mansions, Paul Walker’s last completed film before his death last November, came in at No. 2. The movie flopped at the box office, earning just $20 million domestically.
