It's another busy week, with several first run releases coming out.
But it's a TV on DVD release that tops the list, and is the DVD Pick of the Week: Scrubs - The Complete Second Season.
Also, That '70s Show - The Complete Third Season would rank a pretty close second.

The Brothers Grimm
dropped just 35% during its second weekend in France adding $2.1 million to its $5.7 million total there. In Germany, the film performed a nearly the same level falling 36% to $950,000 over the weekend and $2.9 million during its run. Overall the film made $4 million for a $27.8 million runny tally and that places it fourth on this week's charts. While the film struggled domestically, it is doing quite a bit better on the international scene, and could show a profit sometime during its home market run.
