DVD and Blu-ray Releases for July 2nd, 2013

Iron Man 3 again earned first place on the Per Theater Chart, but this time it was closer with an average of $17,053.

One Track Heart: The Story of Krishna Das earned $11,515 in one theater. More...

Unfortunately, the last two are documentaries and the first one is a Black Comedy, so it is unlikely we will have a true break-out hit this week. More...
