New releases failed to make much of an impact on this week's DVD sales chart with only one placing in the top five and only two or three others in the top 30. This left How to Train Your Dragon on top with an easy win at 1.42 million units for the week. This gives it totals of 3.29 million / $70.40 million in consumer spending at retail, which makes it the third-best-selling DVD for any 2010 theatrical release and the eighth-best-selling DVD of the year.

We had a new number one release on this week's sales chart, with How to Train Your Dragon dominating with 1.87 million units sold / $39.63 million in opening week sales.

Several films could claim to be the champion of the home market this week, including one of the many new releases.
The Karate Kid opened on top of the DVD sales chart with 1.22 million units compared to Iron Man 2 with 1.10 million units.
However, the latter topped the former in terms of consumer spending at $22.15 million to $20.80 million.

New releases walked away with the top two spots on this week's DVD sales chart, as well as four of the top six, and six of the top 30. Leading the way was Iron Man 2 with 2.82 million units generating $64.53 million in revenue during its opening week of release. This is weaker than its predecessor opened with, but the film compensated with stronger Blu-ray sales.

It was another week where new releases dominated the DVD sales chart with ten of them placing in the top 30. This includes Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue, which took top spot with 920,000 units sold, while its opening week sales of $16.80 million were actually second best. This is a drop from The Lost Treasure; however, it did much, much better on Blu-ray than either of the previous releases.

When Disney first announced that they were making a direct-to-DVD franchise based on Tinker Bell from Peter Pan, and that Tinker Bell was going to talk, the response wasn't overwhelmingly positive. Some where cautiously optimistic, while others were more guarded, given the reputation direct-to-DVD sequels have. However, the first film was a success, critically and financially, as was the second. Now that we are on the third film in the franchise, Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue, will these films become a trilogy of three hits, or have they pushed their luck too far.
