While it’s not unusual for several studios to share in video disc title sales and rentals (both DVD and Blu-ray), it is rare that half of the Top 10 sales for any given week all go to one studio. That’s what Universal pulled off in the latest Blu-ray sales category — capturing the last five consecutive slots on the Top 10.

“X-Men Origins: Wolverine” from 20th Century Fox grabbed the lead position, while a couple of older (aka “catalog”) titles slid down to the third and fourth slots — “Gladiator” and “Braveheart,” respectively.

For the week ending Sept. 19, the Blu-ray Top 10 title sales, according to Rentrak:

  1. “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” (20th Century Fox)
  2. “Crank 2: High Voltage” (Lionsgate)
  3. “Gladiator” (Paramount)
  4. “Braveheart” (Paramount)
  5. “Watchmen” (Warner Bro.)
  6. “Van Helsing” (Universal)
  7. “An American Werewolf in London: Full Moon” (Universal)
  8. “Coraline” (Universal)
  9. “Army of Darkness: Screwhead Edition” (Universal)
  10. “Fast & Furious” (Universal)
