DVD Rentals - The Wrestler Pins the Competition

May 10th, 2009

There were only three new releases to chart this week; however, those three new releases all reach the top six. This includes a new number one film, The Wrestler, which should have strong legs thanks to amazing reviews. Second place went to The Day the Earth Stood Still with roughly 30% fewer rentals. Notorious was right behind in third place, while The Spirit fell from second to fourth. Finally, Marley and Me just beat out Frost/Nixon for the final spot in the top five.

Total rentals roes 8.8% from last week to $153.3 million and this was 2.9% higher than the same week last year. After last week's double-digit decline, this is great news.
