After last weeks biggest selling debut of the year for Jurassic World and its subsequent move to the top of the UK Video chart there was no stopping it and it makes it a second week this week.
Jurassic World is not only the biggest box office hit of the year but it looks to be the biggest selling video of the year outselling the current top video Fifty Shades of Grey.
Top new entry for the week is Mr. Homes which enters the video chart at number 2 on its debut week of sale.
Starring Ian McKellen Mr. Holes was released at the UK box office on 19th June 2015 and entered the chart at number 4 that week.
The film managed a 4 week run on the official chart but also had a massive extra 11 weeks in cinemas which boosted its total gross, the film made £2.6 million over 15 weeks.
Also new this week: The 2015 remake of Poltergeist enters the chart on Halloween weekend at number 4 and little known Nicolas Cage film Pay the Ghost enters at 8.
