The hit Mark Wahlberg comedy “Ted” topped the DVD sales chart for the second week in a row, easily besting two new competitors: The science-fiction flop “Total Recall” and comedy “Pitch Perfect.”

Sony Pictures’ “Total Recall,” a remake of the 1990 adaptation of a Philip K. Dick story, was the most rented movie the week before Christmas, according to Rentrak Corp. However Universal Pictures’ “Ted” and “Pitch Perfect” are not yet available to rent from outlets including Redbox and Netflix.
