It’s a hunk-off at the top of the Official Video Chart as two popular new entries battle it out to be crowned this week’s Number 1 bestselling DVD and Blu-ray title.
Today’s Official Video Chart Update, the midweek rundown of home entertainment sales in the UK, sees Charlie Hunnam’s King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (1) just 800 copies ahead of Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron’s Baywatch (2).
Both movies have sold in excess of 20,000 units across the three-day sales window so far this week, but who will bag the coveted top spot? The final Official Video Chart Top 100 will be published at 5:45pm this Sunday.
Elsewhere in the Top 5, last week’s Number 1 Alien: Covenant is on course to slip to Number 3, The Walking Dead’s Complete Seventh Season is new at Number 4, and Moana rises 12 spots to lock in a midweek position of Number 5 following a Disney retail campaign.
New entries and high climbers
Dutch/Japanese fantasy drama The Red Turtle could swim its way to the Number 10 position this week, while Bruce Willis’ First Kill (26) and fantasy epic Knights of the Damned (39) may also enter the Top 40 this Sunday.
Finally, a further eight Disney films rebound back into the Top 40 following the nationwide price promo: Finding Dory (15), Zootropolis (22), Tangled (23), The Little Mermaid (24), Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs (31), The Lion King (34), The Good Dinosaur (35) and Beauty and the Beast (37).
