It looks like the newest "Star Trek" movie is living long and prospering.

"Star Trek Into Darkness," J.J. Abrams' latest contribution to the venerable franchise, is the bestselling DVD and Blu-ray title and a top rental.


The film that made more than $466 million worldwide in theaters was also the top video-on-demand title.

With the fall TV season about to get into full swing, DVD sets of popular series are also populating the bestseller list.

Ahead of its seventh-season premiere Thursday on CBS, the sixth season of "The Big Bang Theory" was the second-biggest seller.

"Now You See Me," Summit Entertainment's film about investigators pursuing a team of illusionist bank robbers, came in at No. 3.

Besides "The Big Bang Theory," other TV shows with seasons debuting in the Top 10 were "Homeland's" second season, "Supernatural's" eighth and "Castle's" fifth.

Here are the top titles for the week that ended Sept. 14 for sales and Sept. 15 for rentals, according to Rentrak.
