The Charts

Perhaps in anticipation of the Super Bowl, film buffs had football on the brain this week: Oscar winner Cuba Gooding Jr.'s pigskin drama Radio scored a touchdown with buyers and renters alike. Meanwhile, slasher fans gave box office dud House of the Dead a new life on the charts, and cartoon collectors came out of the woodwork for Alice in Wonderland. Hey, not everyone's a football fan. Some people prefer a good tea party.
