— WWE’s straight-to-DVD release Behind Enemy Lines: Colombia starring SmackDown star Mr. Kennedy debuted at #18 on BoxOfficeMojo.com’s DVD rentals chart this week. For comparison purposes, a few other movies were released on DVD this week including Disaster Movie (debuted at #15), Babylon A.D. (at #4), Bangkok Dangerous (at #3), Righteous Kill (at #2), and Pineapple Express (at #1). The only new DVD release Behind Enemy Lines: Colombia beat out was a film called The Wackness, which debuted at #29. The film was released last July and grossed a total of $2,849,632. Disaster Movie grossed $34,624,652 at the box office, but was near-universally panned by critics, which probably hurt DVD sales. You can see the complete chart at the following link.
