Wrath Of The Titans, the sequel to the 2010 remake of Clash Of The Titans knocks Ridley Scott’s sci-fi epic, Prometheus, off Number 1 on the Official Video Chart.
Wrath Of The Titans takes place a decade after the events of the first film as the gods lose control over the imprisoned Titans, and call Perseus (played by Sam Worthington) in once again to overthrow the Titans and save mankind.
In a tightly run race, Wrath Of The Titans sold just over 1,400 more copies than Scott’s Prometheus which now sits at Number 2. The second highest new entry in the Official Video Chart is Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows (Number 3). Dark Shadows see’s Burton team up once again with old pal Johnny Depp, who plays Barnabas Collins - a 200-year-old vampire who has been imprisoned in a coffin. Collins is eventually unearthed and makes his way back to his mansion which is now inhabited by his dysfunctional descendants.
Shrek’s Thrilling Tales drops one place to Number 4, while the second season of Mrs. Brown’s Boys drops two place’s to Number 5.
Wrath Of The Titans appears twice in the Official Video Chart Top 40 - it also enters at Number 20 as part of a box set with Clash Of The Titans. The re-issue of futuristic sci-fi adventure Avatar (also starring Sam Worthington)is new in at Number 6.
The big screen adaptation of classic cartoon Top Cat is the fourth highest new entry, debuting at Number 15. Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds - International Magic Live At The 02 (Number 22) is the highest music title to enter this week’s chart.
