Projections: 'Furious 7' Ready to Rev Up the Disc Charts

21 Sep, 2015 By: John Latchem

Universal's Furious 7 should follow up its huge box office take with a No. 1 debut on the disc sales charts the week ending Sept. 20, outpacing Disney's live-action Cinderella.

The action-packed "Fast & Furious" sequel earned $351 million at the domestic box office and more than $1.5 billion worldwide, following a wave of publicity and sentiment related to the death of series star Paul Walker in a car crash while the film was being made.

Cinderella, by comarison, nabbed $201 million domestically, but should draw huge interest from family shoppers.

On the rental chart, Lionsgate's The Age of Adaline is most likely to repeat in the top spot, since Furious 7 is delayed to Redbox for 28 days. Cinderella's rental performance will be hampered by the lack of a distrubition agreement between Redbox and Disney, which limits the numbr of copies available in kiosks.
