X-MEN SEQUEL STAYS NO. 1 ON HOME VIDEO

October 30, 2014 by · Leave a Comment 

Fox’s X-Men: Days of Future Past remained at the top of the home video sales charts for last week, one of the few summer tentpole features to hold on to the top position during recent weeks as blockbuster after blockbuster makes its way onto retailers’ shelves. One reason for its No. 1 staying power is likely the fact that there was no other big blockbuster this week to challenge it. Likewise, DreamWorks Animation’s Mr. Peabody & Sherman remained at No. 2 for a second week. Two films that had so-so theatrical runs debut in third and fourth place. Fox’s family film Earth to Echo, which earned just $38.9 million domestically during its theatrical run, debuted in third place, while Universal’s horror flick, The Purge: Anarchy came in fourth. Rounding out the top five was Sony’s Sex Tape. On Home Media magazine’s rental chart, Universal’s Neighbors took over the top spot, following the end of its 28-day embargo period that prevented it from being rented by Netflix or Redbox. Sex Tape was the No. 2 rental, followed at No. 3 by Warner Bros.’ Godzilla, which hit the rental chart last week at No. 1.
