Three new releases captured the three top spots on the national home video sales charts the week ended May 28 as the traditional start-of-summer flurry of new DVD and Blu-ray Disc releases continues.
Twentieth Century Fox’s “Logan” easily snagged the No. 1 spot on both the Npd VideoScan overall disc sales chart, which tracks combined DVD and Blu-ray Disc sales, and the dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart. The 10th installment in the Marvel superhero “X-Men” franchise was billed as the last appearance of Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart in their roles as Wolverine and Professor X, and grossed $226 million at the domestic box office.

The Pirates Of The Caribbean movies have not been easy films to make....
As Michael Bolton once belted out: “This is the tale of Captain Jack Sparrow.” The Pirates Of The Caribbean film was a surprise sleeper hit in 2003, astounding the higher-ups at Disney who had long been sceptical of how a pirate movie, based on a ride at Disneyland, would appeal to audiences.
Off the back of this success, the sequels only got more ambitious and expensive in scale, with their use of practical effects and convoluted character dynamics serving to complicate the adventure format, with mixed results. It shouldn't shock you then, to hear that each of the movies released so far had some serious behind-the-scenes battles to make them shipshape.
