Fox's Epic Debuts In First Place On Home Video Charts

20th Century Fox's animated Epic sold more DVDs and Blu-ray Discs than any other home video release last week, according to the Nielsen VideoScan First Alert chart. The studio's home entertainment unit said that 40 percent of its sales were generated by the high-definition Blu-ray format. Animated films, which generally don't benefit from the HD format as much as live-action films and which are aimed principally at kids, whose level of appreciation for HD fare may be limited, rarely see such strong Blu-ray results. Coming in at No. 2 was last week's top seller, Sony's Olympus Has Fallen. In third place was Millennium Entertainment's Killing Season, which bombed theatrically, despite a cast headed by Robert De Niro and John Travolta. On Home Media magazine's rental chart, Olympus Has Fallen held on to the No. 1 spot for the second week in a row. The Jackie Robinson biopic 42 followed in second place, while Scary Movie V debuted in third.
