Warner’s ‘Elf’ Atop U.K. Home Entertainment Chart for Third Straight Week

Warner Home Video’s enduring 2003 catalog release Elf finished atop the Official Film Chart in the U.K. for the third consecutive week (ended Dec. 16) — driven by transactional VOD, which accounted for 75% of the title’s unit sales.

Universal Pictures Home Entertainment’s Last Christmas again finished No. 2, spurred by strong DVD and Blu-ray Disc sales. Separately, Universal’s holiday-themed releases The Grinch (No. 3) and Love Actually (No. 4) maintained their positions for another week.

Disney-owned 20th Century Home Entertainment’s Home Alone, and Warner’s The Polar Express moved up one spot, respectively at No. 5 and No. 6. Disney’s Mulan dropped two places to No. 7, while 1992’s The Muppet Christmas Carol entered the chart at No. 8 for the first time.
