LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - "The Adjustment Bureau," a quirky sci-fi romance starring Matt Damon and Emily Blunt, debuted at No. 1 on the DVD sales chart Wednesday, followed by fellow rookies "Unknown" and "Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules."
The moderately successful theatrical features helped knock incumbent champ "True Grit" to No. 5 on Nielsen VideoScan's sales chart during the week ended June 26, while "Battle: Los Angeles" fell two to No. 4, also in its second week.
On Nielsen's dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart, "The Adjustment Bureau" and "Unknown" also scored a No. 1 and No. 2 debut, respectively. They were followed by "Battle: Los Angeles" and "Wimpy Kid."
The top rental, according to trade publication Home Media Magazine, was "Just Go With It," which jumped two places in its third week. None of the new DVD champs appeared on the rental chart because they come from studios that enforce a 28-day window before they become available on Netflix and Redbox.
