Hot 'Constantine' tops DVD sales

As reported by TheHollywoodReporter.com

Warner Home Video's "Constantine" has become the latest comic book-based movie to top the sales charts, entering VideoScan's First Alert chart at No. 1 its first week in stores. Another new release, Buena Vista Home Entertainment's "Ice Princess," took the No. 2 spot on the preliminary national sales chart for the week ending July 24, bumping last week's top seller, Warner's "Million Dollar Baby," to No. 3. "Constantine," which grossed $75.5 million in theaters, proved so popular at retail that while the regular DVD was ranked No. 1, the deluxe edition, which includes a comic book-and a heftier price tag-clocked in at No. 4. "Million Dollar Baby," however, remained the top renter for the week ending July 24, according to Home Media Retailing's rental chart, earning an additional $12 million to bring its two-week take to $27.4 million.
