Highest new film of the week is the semi bio-pic Eddie The Eagle which makes its debut at number 2.

The film about the much loved British ski jumping star takes £2.8 million for the weekend, although it did make its debut on Monday night so this is a full weeks takings.

Deadpool is still the highest total grossing film on the box office having now taken £37.6 million.

A lot of new releases this week starring the likes of Jim Carrey, Elijah Wood, Zac Efron, James McAvoy and then there's The Last Exorcism sequel. The Incredible Burt Wonderstone is a wacky comedy also starring Steve Carell alongside Jim Carrey about 2 superstar magicians who are being out performed by street magicians so they go for sabotage of their act.

Maniac is a serial killer story about a Mannequin shop owner who develops a dangerous obsession with an artist.

The Paperboy has a seller cast of Zac Efron, Matthew McConaughey, Nicole Kidman and John Cusack, the story follows a reporter who returns to Florida to investigate a case which involves a prisoner on death row.

Welcome to the punch is a criminal cat and mouse story about an ex-con who returns to London for family reasons and is then pursued by an old foe looking to finally get revenge.

The Last Exorcism Part 2 is is a sequel film about an Exorcism, clearly the last one wasn't the last one!

The company was started in the US in 1997 specialising in mailing DVD's to it's customers rather than having them go to a Video Shop to rent them, utilising the internet it revolutionised the industry and was the first nail in the Blockbuster coffin. Today the company still deals with mail order but also does big business with streaming video, and from today the service has come to Britain, over 10 years later!

Does the UK need Netflix? LoveFilm has no strong competition, so in the mail order sector, but streaming/downloaded video, maybe not. I can stream films from my PS3, my Xbox 360, my iTunes account, my Apple TV (OK technically thats through iTunes as well), my TV itself, even Blockbuster if I so choose, so Netflix I think is 10 years late.

So why launch Netflix now? It has the brand recognition, despite it being US only many many UK people know the name, in fact many probably thought the service was already available in the UK. Netflix are also a massive company making billions of dollars a year, expansion was only a matter of time.

I remember working for the biggest video rental company in Britain many years ago, the company was called Ritz Video Film Hire, Blockbuster Video had been trying to crack the UK for a couple of years, they were a massive American company at the time and thought they could bring the American business model to the UK, it didn't work and Blockbuster Video was failing, so what did they do? They bought Ritz Video Film Hire and overnight the staff who had grown to hate Blockbuster were suddenly working for them, I know LoveFilm is owned by Amazon.co.uk but I can seriously see them selling to Netflix sometime down the line.

At the end of the day as long as the customer wins who cares? Already LoveFilm have reduced their prices by a pound, but LoveFilm don't offer HD yet, Netflix had that advantage for the extra pound. I'm going to sound off now, I know these services are good value, £4.99 or £5.99 for unlimited streaming films is very good, but, this thing that annoys me is they don't have the latest releases, I want to see film when they are out on DVD/Blu-ray, not weeks later, I'd even pay a pound or 2 extra so i could stream Breaking Dawn Part 1 from the day it's released, I wont get that yet with Netflix or LoveFilm, for that I'd need to stick iTunes, PS3 etc.

I'm sure these services will get there, and for rental at least the future is in digital distribution, but for me Netflix isn't there yet, but still it is a welcome addition that I may use when they get same day as disk releases.

Sales of films and TV show on a physical disk declined by 7.2% in 2011 while sales of digital media downloads rose by 12%. Despite this Blu-ray is growing with it now accounting for 18% of the market.

Rental sales for downloads are expected to get stronger and stronger as the video shop of the 90's continues to become a relic. The saviors for DVD/Blu-ray is the triple play disk set allowing for the consumer to have the Blu-ray, DVD and digital for mobile devices version of a film.

Despite this downturn in sales December saw a big increase in sales and accounted for nearly 25% of the yearly sales of physical disks, and Blu-ray saw a year on year increase of nearly 27%.

British films saw an incredible year for sales with the last 2 chapters of the Harry Potter series by far outselling everything else. The Kings Speech, The Inbetweeners and Paul also did very well with British talent attached. Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides was also a big seller, it was made in Britain.

Despite the recession the home video market, which includes physical and digital media was worth £2,251 billion in 2011.

Here is the top 10 films and TV sales of 2011

  1. Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows Part 2
  2. Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows Part 1
  3. The Inbetweeners
  4. The King's Speech
  5. Pirates Of The Caribbean - On Stranger Tides
  6. Despicable Me
  7. Paul
  8. Tangled
  9. Peter Kay - Live - The Tour That Didn't Tour
  10. Transformers - Dark Of The Moon
Sony and online DVD/Blu-ray rental company Lovefilm have today announced that it will be delivering movies via the internet to owners of Sony internet TV's.

In the same week that bricks and mortar video rental company Blockbuster announce that unless they have an injection of cash they will go bankrupt, one of the more successful online rental companies announce a deal that could amount to the final nail in the video shop coffin.

Movie rentals via the likes of the Playstation Network via a Playstation 3 or XBox Live via an XBox 360 have been with us for a while and proved successful, the internet TV delivers is in essence an extenuation of this.

Samsung are also in negations to offer a similar service and as people replace their TV's the replacement will most likely be internet enabled allowing the service to grow in time.

Is this another example of the physical media being a thing of the past, in the future will our film collection be in the "cloud" and we stream the movie when we want to watch it, will our film collections be Lovefilms catalogue?

I personally still like the idea of physical media, it's still fun and exciting, maybe I'm just an old fossil that needs to accept the future?

Whatever happens it looks like the video shop is going to be a thing of the past, no-one knows this more that Blockbuster Video the once king of the rental market who didn't move with the times and will go bust by the end of the year. As a former employee of the company I cant help but feel sad about that.
