Summit Entertainment stormed to the top of the national home entertainment charts last week with Source Code, a PG-13-rated action thriller starring Jake Gyllenhaal that generated $54.7 million in theaters.
Report supported by Rentrakfor week of July 24th – 30th (Source Code release on the 26th July in the US)
Source Code generated 41 percent of its first-week sales from Blu-ray Disc, significantly higher than the latest weekly percentage for Rango (28 percent) or Limitless (33 percent).
Possible we could also see this trend continue for the UK DVD / Blu-Ray release on August 15th as well, with an exclusive steel book case edition Blu-Ray now sold out due to popular demand on pre-order with popular online retailer Play.com.
And don’t forget UK pals, if you can’t wait until August 15th, rental chain Blockbuster have Source Code available to rent NOW! I picked up a copy last Friday, chap in the shop said he loved it, and it has been very popular so far, there were hardly any left on the shelf when I picked it up 🙂
