Projections: 'Alvin' Sets Sights On Top Sales Spot2 Apr, 2012 By: John Latchem
The parade of family films to close out the first quarter continues with 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment’s Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked, which should top the sales chart the week ending April 1 after earning $132 million at the U.S. box office.
Other contenders include the previous week’s No. 1, Disney’s The Muppets, and Universal’s Hop.
With none of the major new releases receiving wide rental distribution, Sony Pictures’ The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo should top the rental chart for a second week.
