Godzilla stomps the competition on DVD and BluRay

The summer blockbuster season may be over, but that means the fall DVD season is just getting started! Echoing the film’s impressive $93million opening weekend earlier this year, fans of the Godzilla remake helped The Big G dominate the charts in the film’s first week on home media.

As reported by entertainment trade website Variety, strong first-week sales pushed Godzilla past several other highly-anticipated titles, including new releases such as The Fault in Our Stars and the latest season sets of The Big Bang Theory, Castle, and Arrow. Last week’s top release, Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier, dropped to the #3 spot this week.
