DVD Rentals - Still Gran(d)

July 15th, 2009

Gran Torino returned to the top of the rental chart with more than 50% more rentals than the second place release, 12 Rounds, which opened a tiny, tiny fraction ahead of Confessions of a Shopaholic. Another holdover, The Code, fell from first to fourth, but that's still strong for this type of release. Rounding out the top five was Inkheart.

Other new releases to chart include Street Fighter - The Legend of Chun Li in ninth place. The Chaos Experiment opened in eleventh place on the rental chart, but won't be released for sale till August 4th. Finally, The Jonas Bothers - The Concert Experience opened in 20th place.

Overall rentals were down 7.4% to $129.6 million for the week, which was 15.2% lower than the same week last year. This is the second down weekend in a row, but only the fourth down week in the past fifteen.
