Blu-ray Top 10: It's 'Twilight' Time for 'Pinocchio'

April 2, 2009
The theater blockbuster about a teenage vampire, "Twilight," vaulted to the top of the Blu-ray Top 10 chart in its opening week, nudging out an animated film that was originally released in theaters before most Americans alive today were even born ("Pinocchio," 1940).

The puppet-turned-real-boy Disney classic had held the top slot prior to the "Twilight" release.

Meanwhile, two super-hero movies remain in the Top 10 many weeks after their disc releases, with "The Dark Knight" slipping to 6th place and "Iron Man" lodged at No. 8.

For the week ending March 21, according to Rentrak:
  1. "Twilight" (Summit)
  2. "Pinocchio 70th Anniversary Edition" (Disney)
  3. "Punisher: War Zone" (Lionsgate)
  4. "Transporter 3" (Lionsgate)
  5. "Role models" (Universal)
  6. "The Dark Knight" (Warner Bros.)
  7. "The Princess Bride" (MGM/20th Century Fox)
  8. "Iron Man" (Paramount)
  9. "Australia" (20th Century Fox)
  10. "W" (Disney)
