The Charts

DVD 'King'

The Platinum Edition DVD of ''The Lion King'' (Disney's highest-grossing film ever until catch o' the summer ''Finding Nemo'') roared to the top of the sales chart -- unsurprising, considering that consumers have been waiting a decade for the discs since the VHS debut. Despite this royal competition, Mark Wahlberg's ''Italian Job'' remake motored into second place in sales and first in rentals. Meanwhile, the rat-tastic ''Willard,'' starring Crispin Glover, managed to squeak into the top 10. Do we smell a future cult classic?
