In its first week of release on DVD and Blue-ray, Fox's "Skyfall" — the latest James Bond installment — topped DVD and Blue-ray sales chart, knocking "Hotel Transylvania" out of the No. 1 spot.

In addition to the 007 flick starring Daniel Craig, "Hotel Transylvania," "The Man With the Iron Fists," "Peter Pan" (re-release) and "Flight" rounded out the top slots on the DVD sales chart for the week ending Feb 17.

Denzel Washington's action-thriller "Flight" remained atop the rentals chart for a second week, with "Here Comes the Boom," "Taken 2," "Hotel Transylvania" and "Alex Cross" completing the top five list.

While Paramount's "Flight" has topped the rental chart both weeks since its release, it has yet to crack the top of the sales chart — slipping from second to the fifth-most-sold DVD last week.
