The Official Top 40 biggest DVDs and Blu-rays of 2018 so far

Family friendly franchises are the big sellers in the first quarter of 2018.

With four consecutive weeks in the Official Video Chart Top 2 since its release, it is easy to see why Paddington 2 leads the biggest DVDs and Blu-rays of 2018 so far.

OfficialCharts.com can reveal the Top 40 best-selling home entertainment titles of the first three months of the year, and the Ben Whishaw and Julie Walters family-friendly flick is out in front.

The fastest-selling DVD and Blu-ray of the year so far with first week sales of 333,000, the adaptation of Michael Bond's books has accumulated 526,000 sales in total. Paddington 2 has also spent two weeks at Number 1 on the Official Video Chart.

Another popular franchise, Thor, takes runner-up slot, as Thor: Ragnarok, the third of the superhero movies centred around Chris Hemsworth's Asgardian god of thunder, is at Number 2. Another former chart topper, the movie which also stars Tom Hiddleston and Mark Ruffalo, has generated sales of 476,000.

A film 35 years in the making, Blade Runner 2049, a sequel to 1982's Blade Runner starring Harrison Ford, has logged 325,000 sales to occupy the Number 3 slot in the quarterly Top 40. Kingsman: The Golden Circle has shifted 306,000 units to chart at 4, while horror epic IT is at Number 5 (237,000).

Elsewhere in the Top 10, Murder on the Orient Express is at Number 6 having sold 217,000 copies, and 2017's Christmas Number 1 DVD, the Oscar winning Dunkirk, is at 8 (182,000). The Christopher Nolan-directed movie previously spent four weeks at Number 1 on the Official Video Chart and to-date has sales of 834,000.
