Paramount’s “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues” gave it a good try, but the sequel to the 2004 comedy about a full-of-himself San Diego newscaster couldn’t topple Walt Disney’s “Frozen” from the top of the national home video sales charts for the week ended April 6.

The animated feature remained at No. 1 for the third consecutive week on both the Nielsen VideoScan First Alert sales chart, which tracks overall disc sales, DVD and Blu-ray Disc combined, and Nielsen’s dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart.

Anchorman 2,” meanwhile, debuted at No. 3 on both charts, behind Disney’s direct-to-video “The Pirate Fairy,” the fifth computer-animated film in the DisneyToon Studios’ Tinker Bell film series.

Nielsen data shows that even in its third week of release, “Frozen” sold twice as many copies as “Anchorman 2,” which just came out on disc after earning $127.4 million in U.S. theaters – nearly 50% more than the original. »
