Sony Pictures Home Entertainment announced today that the year's best reviewed and most talked about film, The Social Network, debuted at # 1 making it the top selling Blu-ray and DVD and the top home rental for the week ending January 16th, according to reports from Home Media Magazine. The collector's edition 2-disc Blu-ray and 2-disc DVD were released in stores on January 11th.
The film explores the moment at which Facebook, the most revolutionary social phenomenon of the new century, was invented and how its overnight success and wealth changed the lives of the classmates who created it. Owen Gleiberman of Entertainment Weekly describes the film as, "The best picture of the year. It stands as vital proof - to the world and to Hollywood - that a brashly original movie can still connect powerfully with a popular audience. It's the first Hollywood movie to really capture the metaphysical spirit of the digital age. »
The Facebook movie that defines a generation could not be stopped on the home video charts with The Social Network topping the DVD sales, DVD rentals and Blu-ray sales charts, during the week ending January 16. It was the first time since Toy Story 3's release in November that a title swept all three charts in one week.
The Social Network knocked last week's top seller, Despicable Me, down to second place on the DVD sales charts this week. Another new release, Lionsgate's animated tale Alpha and Omega debuted in third place in DVD sales. Piranha 3D also debuted to solid numbers, finishing sixth place in DVD sales and fifth place in rentals.
Because The Social Network wasn't delayed 28 days on both Netflix and Redbox, it was able to pull off the first sweep in two months. Piranha 3D's rental release was day-and-date with the retail version as well. »

Hey there kids. Brian Gallagher here with this week's look at all the news that wasn't exactly fit for print. There's a lot to get to this week so let's get started with a hilarious comic strip which ties in Back to The Future and the ridiculous amount of Hollywood remakes:
Back to The Future Mash-up Photo - via Unreality Magazine
I'm actually kind of surprised I haven't seen something like this sooner. Unreality Magazine came across a hilarious photo that shows how Marty and Doc might have reacted Back to The Future if they really did go back to the year 2010:
