DVD Rentals - Button Up

May 19th, 2009

Just two new release charted this week, led by The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, which had three times as many rentals as the second place Bride Wars. Hotel for Dogs just beat out Last Chance Harvey for third place, while The Wrestler was also close behind.

Total rentals again saw growth up 5.1% from last week to $174.6 million. This was 3.9% higher than the same week last year, which is the best year-to-year growth we've seen in a long time. If this can keep up for a while, 2009 might see growth in all three areas of the home market (DVD sales, Blu-ray sales, and DVD rentals).
