Batman Begins Tops the DVD Charts

Warner Home Video’s Batman Begins shot to first place on both the preliminary national sales and rental charts. It ranks as the top-selling DVD so far this fourth quarter, with nearly 4 million copies sold in the week ended October 23.

“George A. Romero’s Land of the Dead” from Universal finished a distant second on VideoScan’s First Alert chart.

Disney’s “Cinderella” held fast at No. 3, while the previous week’s top seller, Fox’s “Kingdom of Heaven,” slid to No. 4.

On trade publication Home Media Retailing‘s rental chart, Batman Begins also scored an easy victory, generating an estimated $11.36 million in rental revenue for the week.

“Kingdom of Heaven,” however, remained a strong No. 2, earning an additional $9.06 million to bring its two-week take to $19.1 million, or more than 40% of its box office gross.
