After enduring one of its worst slumps -- the aftereffect of last year's box-office downturn -- the DVD business is expected to set a new record for October, according to Home Media Retailing magazine. The trade publication observed that the 16 theatrical films released this month together earned $1.1 billion at the box office, including 20th Century Fox's X-Men: The Last Stand, which alone accounted for nearly 25 percent of that amount. Five million copies of the DVD version were sold during its first week in stores. Other strong performers were The Fast And The Furious: Tokyo Drift, The Little Mermaid Platinum Edition, Click, and Over the Hedge. In an interview with HMR, 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment president Mike Dunn observed, "The summer box office was up 7 percent this year, which is translating into a strong fourth quarter for home entertainment."
