The Charts

Posted on

Marking the arrival of fall, the DVD chart is full of notable, and long-awaited, videos. Not surprisingly, ”The Two Towers” — the second installment in the ”Lord of the Rings” trilogy — was the top debut (hunger for all things ”Rings” even brought ”Fellowship” back onto the sales chart). Tracking closely behind was another tale of a fraternity ready to do battle in the name of happiness: ”National Lampoon’s Animal House”, which celebrated its 25th with a special-edition disc. And ”Simpsons” fans, or those who missed the early days of prime time’s longest-running sitcom, were out grabbing copies of season 3. After all, some of us are a little tired of reruns and reality TV.

DADDY DAY CARE (Columbia TriStar, PG) It’s Eddie Murphy in full-on family-flick mode, taking care of a belligerent brood of other people’s kids.

THE DANCER UPSTAIRS (Fox, R) John Malkovich’s directorial debut follows an idealistic police officer (Javier Bardem) trying to catch a guerrilla rebel leader and break apart a terrorist faction.

HOLES (Disney, PG) In his first major theatrical role, ”Project Greenlight” survivor Shia LaBeouf stars as a shovel-happy tween plagued by a family curse.

A MIGHTY WIND (Warner, PG-13) You’ll want a front-row seat when Christopher Guest reunites with his familiar ensemble, including Eugene Levy and Parker Posey, for a comic mockumentary on ’60s folk music.
