The Cold Light Of Day

January has come to a close when it comes to sales and rentals and the final weeks tally has arrived as it dips into February a bit. Not surprisingly, the sales chart mostly mirrors the rental chart with an exception or two to be had. Hotel Transylvania dominates both lists at the top in its opening week while the sales chart also adds several things not available in rental yet, or limited, such as Downton Abbey Season 3, The Cold Light of Day and Batman: The Dark Knight Returns Part 2. What does show in both charts as new releases as well are Paranormal Activity 4 and Seven Psychopaths, though they’re in different positions overall. There’s a good bit of new material on the sales chart with six of the top ten all new releases while the rental side has just three.
