They couldn’t be toppled by The Dictator, but Marvel’s Avengers Assemble have been knocked off the top of the Official Video Chart by Snow White And The Huntsman.
Director Rupert Sanders’ reimagining of the fairy tale classic, which stars Kristen Stewart, Charlize Theron, Chris Hemsworth and Sam Claflin, has gone straight in at Number 1 on the Official Video Chart. The Official Video Chart is compiled for the video industry by the Official Charts Company, incorporating UK sales of all physical video formats, including DVD, Blu-Ray and VHS.
Shrek's Thrilling Tales, which features a series of Halloween shorts from DreamWorks Animation's Shrek and Monsters Vs. Aliens franchises, is new in at Number 2, while Marvel's Avengers Assemble, which is the second biggest selling DVD and Blu-ray title of 2012 so far behind Twilight’s Breaking Dawn Part 1, is down two places to Number 3. The Dictator and Taken complete this week’s Top 5 and Number 4 and Number 5, respectively.
In addition to Snow White And The Huntsman (Number 1) and Shrek's Thrilling Tales (Number 2), there are ten other new entries on this week’s Official Video Chart.

Season 7 of Emily Deschanel and David Boreanaz’ crime drama, Bones, enters at Number 17, season 4 of Breaking Bad debuts at Number 30, and Christian Bale and Helen Mirren’s Thrones And Empires enters at Number 32.
