LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) – The DreamWorks Animation hit "How To Train Your Dragon" topped the national home video sales charts for a second consecutive week on Wednesday -- and was also the No. 1 renter in its first full week in stores.

Coming in at No. 2 on both the Nielsen VideoScan sales chart and the tracking firm's dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart for the week ended October 24 was "Predators," a science-fiction reboot starring Adrien Brody and Laurence Fishburne.

The new 35th anniversary edition Blu-ray Disc release of cult classic "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" made quite a splash in stores, landing at No. 5 on the Blu-ray chart and pushing overall sales to No. 11 on the main chart.

On trade publication Home Media Magazine's rental chart, "Dragon" easily captured the top spot, despite a stiff challenge from second-ranked "Robin Hood." Last week's champ, "The Karate Kid," fell to No. 3.
