John Carter Tops DVD/Blu-ray releases, outsells Act of Valor and Safehouse

Other Stuff

From the Hollywood Reporter

The post-Memorial Day onslaught of high-powered theatricals officially got underway last week, with the top five spots on the national home video sales charts for the week ending June 10 all going to new releases.

Walt Disney Studios’ John Carter — starring Taylor Kitsch, who next appears in Oliver Stone’s Savages — snagged the top spot on both the Nielsen VideoScan First Alert sales chart, which tracks overall disc sales, and Nielsen’s dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart.

20th Century Fox’s Act of Valor finished a close second on both charts, while Universal Studios’ Safe House debuted at No. 3, also on both charts.

The two top sellers earned similar box office revenues — John Carter grossed $72.9 million in U.S. theaters, while Act of Valorgrossed $70 million — and both are geared toward the post-Memorial Day action crowd, as is Safe House, starring Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds, which earned $126.2 million.
