Jonesin' For 'Indy'

Posted on

Fans of the man with the hat sure threw him the idol this week, securing the top disc spot for ”The Adventures of Indiana Jones” — Harrison Ford’s first No. 1 video since the VHS debut of his thriller ”What Lies Beneath” in 2001 — and making the boxed set the fastest-selling DVD movie collection ever. Meanwhile, the butt-kickin’ Angels waged their own Full Throttle chart battle: The sexy spies fought off Danny Boyle’s postapocalyptic horror flick ”28 Days Later” to gain the upper hand in sales and rentals. Girls: 2, zombies: 0.
