In what could be a weeks-long trend, "Avatar" continues to lead in title sales in the Blu-ray (and DVD) Top 10 for the second week, with new entry "It's Complicated" — a romantic comedy where the three leads are all older than 50 — coming in at the runner-up slot.

Two Robert Downey, Jr. films — "Sherlock Holmes" and "Iron Man" — made the list in the fourth, and seventh, slot, respectively. And oddly, the Blu-ray title leader in sales until "Avatar" came along, "The Dark Knight," re-entered the list in the 10th spot after having fallen off the grid completely a couple of months ago. Heath Ledger's final film, "Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus," took third.

The Top 10 Blu-ray titles for the week ending May 2, according to Nielsen VideoScan:

  1. "Avatar" (20th Century Fox)
  2. "It's Complicated" (Universal)
  3. "Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus" (Sony Pictures)
