Washington , Nov 29(ANI): 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment’s “Live Free or Die Hard” shot to the top of the Home Media Magazine’s video rental chart and Nielsen VideoScan First Alert sales chart for the week ending Nov. 25.

Owing this upsurge in sales to Thanksgiving, the Bruce Willis starrer movie has left behind theatrical releases that came to DVD two days before the holiday

Paramount/DreamWorks’ “Shrek the Third,” took the No. 2 spot on the sales chart, reports the Hollywood Reporter.

“Hairspray” debuted at No. 3 on the sales chart and No.2 on the rental chart, just ahead of Disney’s “Ratatouille,” which in its third week was No. 4 on the sellers list.

The other new-to-DVD theatrical release, Disney’s “The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause,” debuted at No. 5 on the DVD sales chart and No. 9 on the rental chart with $4.7 million.

Black Friday deep-discounting, which saw recent theatricals go for less than $6 at Wal-Mart, Target, Best Buy and other big national discount chains, spurred sales of catalog titles. (ANI)
