Projections: '42' Makes Play For No. 1 Spot

22 Jul, 2013 By: John Latchem

Warner’s baseball drama 42, about Jackie Robinson breaking baseball’s color barrier, is poised to take over the top sales position on the home video charts. The film was a hit in theaters, grossing $94.9 million domestically, and its DVD and Blu-ray release was timed for the Major League Baseball All-Star game.

The other big title for the week is Sony Pictures’ Evil Dead remake, which grossed $54.2 million at U.S. theaters.

On the rental charts, Warner’s Jack the Giant Slayer will seek the top spot now that it is available at Redbox.
