If watching round-the-clock Michael Jackson coverage and reading the stories about a planned View-Master movie have brought you dangerously close to losing faith in humanity… you probably shouldn’t read the DVD charts.
The top-selling home video release for the week ending July 5 was 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment’s “12 Rounds,” an actioner that was one of the last films from the now-shuttered Fox Atomic division, launched two years ago to produce low-budget theatricals aimed at teens. The film also managed to snag the No. 1 sales spot with estimated unit sales of fewer than 150,000 discs, according to Home Media Magazine’s market research department.
And yes, 12 Rounds was that movie starring a WWE wrestler that combined a they-kidnapped-John-Cena’s-wife plot with a madman-toys-with-the-police plot. I think they may have even squeezed some torture porn in there. Man, if that was number one, what was number two?
“12 Rounds” was followed on the sales chart by HBO’s season five TV DVD set of “Entourage,” which debuted No. 2 and sold nearly 87% as many copies as “12 Rounds,” albeit at a much higher list price. [THR]
Well sure, I can see that. I saw an HBO first-look at Entourage the other day that said, “The boys are really growing up this season – Turtle has a girlfriend.” It’s amazing, she likes shoes and hats too! Oh my gosh, which A-list director should Vince work with next? Let’s discuss this by the pool! Haha, now Johnny Drama’s working on his tan. Classic.
