  • Notorious “Wrestles” Its Way To The #1 spot of the DVD charts nationwide!

    The legacy of Big lives on triumphantly as Notorious took the #1 spot in Nielsen’s DVD sales chart in its debut week, beating out the likes of critically acclaimed The Wrestler and tween favorite Twilight, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Executive produced by Diddy, Biggie’s mother Voletta Wallace and former manager Mark Pitts, the biopic has grossed about $36 million at the box office and an additional $6 million overseas to date. While an exact number has yet to emerge, the film's retail store success was reportedly unexpected among analysts.

    Notorious, the biopic on rapper Notorious B.I.G. from 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment, was the surprise winner in the weekly home video sales derby, debuting at No. 1 on the Nielsen VideoScan First Alert chart for the week ended April 26. Favorite The Wrestler, also from Fox, had to settle for a No. 2 finish, selling 81% as many copies as Notorious, according to Nielsen data. The film's total profits to date are close to roughly $40 million since its release last January.
