DVD Rentals - Obsessed with the Race for First Place

August 18th, 2009

The same two new releases that took the top two spots on the sales chart this week were also able to take the top two spots on the rental chart as well, but in the other order. Obsessed came out on top with 27% more rentals than Race to Witch Mountain, but it is common for kids movies to do better on the sales chart than the rental chart. Fast and Furious was pushed into third place, just ahead of The Soloist. Watchmen rounding out the top five.

The best of the rest of the new releases was Labor Pains in 16th place while Fragments opened in 20th place.

The rental market continues to show strength up 1.3% from last week to $172.0 million. This was up 10.3% from the same week last year and that was the fourth up week in the past five.
