After two weeks atop the home-video charts, “Divergent” ceded first place to “The Amazing Spider-Man 2.” After grossing more than $700 million worldwide,Sony’s comic-book flick ranked first on Nielsen VideoScan’s First Alert, which tracks overall disc sales, and the firm’s dedicated Blu-ray chart, reported Home Media Magazine, as well as Home Media’s rental chart. In addition, a Walmart exclusive two-pack with both the sequel and the first “Amazing Spider-Man” reboot was 12th on First Alert and climbed all the way to third on high-definition.
“Divergent” dropped to runner-up on both charts with just 15 percent as many overall sales, followed by the faith-driven film “God’s Not Dead,” which ranked fourth on Blu-ray. Rounding out the top 10 were Disney’s Halloween-themed TV movie “Toy Story of Terror!” in fourth (sixth on Blu-ray) and “Muppets Most Wanted” in fifth on both lists.
