It was a neck-in-neck race for No. 1 in the home video sales arena for the week ending June 15.

While Universal Studios' "Lone Survivor" is again the No. 1 title on the Nielsen VideoScan First Alert sales chart, third-ranked "Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit," from Paramount, actually sold more units.

The discrepancy is due to the fact that Walmart offered an exclusive Blu-ray Disc two-pack of actioner "Jack Ryan" with 2003's "The Italian Job," and this combo from the country's No. 1 home entertainment retailer is tracked separately by VideoScan.

Combining sales data for the various configurations of "Jack Ryan" - a reboot of the franchise about author Tom Clancy's famed CIA analyst, now portrayed by Chris Pine - shows it actually sold 4% more discs than "Lone Survivor" on the First Alert chart, which tracks overall disc sales, DVD and Blu-ray Disc combined sales.

"Jack Ryan," which earned $50.6 million in U.S. theaters, also was unambiguously No. 1 on VideoScan's dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart, followed closely by "Lone Survivor" at No. 2.

That little matter out of the way, Universal Studios also scored the No. 2-selling disc of the week on First Alert (and the No. 3 Blu-ray Disc) with a new release, "Non-Stop," a $91.7 million-grosser that stars Liam Neeson as an air marshal who while on a transatlantic flight gets a series of threatening text messages warning him that his fellow passengers are at risk unless the airline deposits $150 million into an off-shore bank account.

Rounding out the First Alert top five are two sophomores, both distributed by 20th Century Fox: "RoboCop" at No. 4, down from No. 2 the previous week, and "Son of God" at No. 5 (No. 3 last week).

On the dedicated Blu-ray Disc sales chart, the No. 4 spot went to "RoboCop" (down from No. 2) and, at No. 5, Walmart's "Jack Ryan/The Italian Job" two-pack.

On Home Media Magazine's rental chart for the week, "Jack Ryan" debuted at No. 1 (Paramount is one of the three majors that does not withhold new releases from key rental outlets Netflix and Redbox), while the Warner drama "Her," with a domestic box office gross of $25.6 million, was No. 2 now that its 28-day holdback from Netflix and Redbox is over.

Sony Pictures' "The Monuments Men," the top rental for the two prior weeks, slipped to No. 3 its third week in stores.

Rounding out the top five rentals for the week ending June 15: Universal Studios' "Ride Along" at No. 4 and Sony Pictures' "Pompeii" at No. 5.
