The Hollywood Reporter says that Sin City made a killing on DVD last week:
The wages of “Sin” paid off handsomely last week as Buena Vista Home Entertainment’s “Sin City” snagged the top spot on the preliminary national sales chart and the rental chart for the week ending Aug. 21.
The stylish thriller, based on Frank Miller’s graphic novels, trounced fellow newcomer “The Wedding Date,” from Universal, by a nearly 4-to-1 margin on VideoScan’s First Alert sales chart. “Sin” grossed $74 million at the domestic boxoffice, a little more than twice what “The Wedding Date” earned.
On Home Media Retailing’s rental chart for the week ending Aug. 21, “Sin” generated an estimated $9.84 million; “Date,” a romantic comedy starring Debra Messing and Dermot Mulroney, made $8.54 million.
