Projections: ‘Holmes’ Should Be Top Title Again

19 Apr, 2010 By: Kelly Burner



For the second consecutive week there were no major theatrical releases debuting on DVD and Blu-ray Disc. Last week (ended April 11) the title with the highest box office gross was the Vivendi horror flick The Collector, with only $7 million in theatrical revenue. This week was a similar story, with Universal’s comedy Pirate Radio the highest box office performer, grossing $8 million in theatrical revenue.

With no strong competition, it is likely that a holdover title will again grab No. 1 on the top sales and rental charts for the week. The most likely candidate is Warner’s Sherlock Holmes, which took the top spot on both the sales and rental charts for the week ended April 11.

The week ending April 18 did see the Blu-ray debut of Ron Howard’s 1995 film Apollo 13, which will likely debut high on the national top Blu-ray sellers chart.
