LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - It’s a split decision on the latest home video charts.
“I Can Do Bad All by Myself,” the latest Tyler Perry comedy, debuted at No. 1 on the Nielsen VideoScan sales chart during the week ended January 17. Awards favorite “The Hurt Locker” grabbed the top spot on Home Media Magazine’s rental chart.
The Perry film, which grossed $51.7 million in U.S. theaters, fought two other new theatrical releases for the top slot. The Iraq-themed drama “Hurt Locker,” with just $12.6 million in box office receipts, bowed at No. 2.
A third new release, “Halloween II,” debuted at No. 5 on the sales chart even though it earned $33.4 million on the big screen, more than twice as much as “Hurt Locker.”
On the rental chart, “The Hurt Locker” bumped “Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs” to No. 2. “Halloween II” bowed at No. 3, and “I Can Do Bad All By Myself” entered the chart at No. 5.
“The Hurt Locker” also scored an impressive victory on the Nielsen VideoScan Blu-ray Disc sales chart, while “The Hangover” hung onto the No. 2 position, and incumbent champ “Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs” tumbled to No. 7.
