TRAMPING TO THE TOP

Posted on

Fall Clearance Special: After cruising at the top of the rentals chart for much of the summer, three boffo star vehicles are finally running out of gas. Unforgiven, The Bodyguard, and, most surprisingly, Home Alone 2 (at No. 3 last week) tumble out of the top 10. Into the gap rush a handful of films that were less profitable in theaters: Chaplin at No. 6, Wesley Snipes’ actioner Boiling Point at No. 7, and the killer- secretary opus The Temp at No. 8. The survival flick Alive not only holds its own but moves up a notch to No. 3, indicating that its favorable word of mouth is not dead. Last Weeks on Chart Chart Top 10 Tape rentals
