There is a switch around at the top of the UK video chart this week with paddington going back to the top after dipping down to 2nd last week.

Falling into second place after a week at the top is Christopher Nolan's Interstellar, the Easter holiday doing the film no favours in the sales department.

Highest new film of the week is the Ethan Hawk starring Predestination, a little know film from earlier in the year.

Predestination didn't make a dent on the box office instead having a very small release in just 10 cinemas on 20th February.

The film only hung around for a week and made £1,758 from the 10 cinemas, or about 475 tickets sold.

Not a big week for new releases as the only other new film is Fall of an Empire at number 17.

You can call it a victory if you like but the simple fact is that in the home movie market there is only room for one format, and in the high definition future if movie watching in the home we will be doing that on a Blu-ray device.

Toshiba has today (Tuesday) announced that it will discontinue production of all things HD-DVD which basically kills the format dead. It's been a long fought battle but in the end what is widely considered the best format won.

Was it the Playstation 3 which won the battle, I doubt it, but clearly Sony had learned a lesson with the Playstation 2, which was accounted for part of the success of DVD, and delaying the launch of the PS3 to include the high definition player has certainly helped the format along.

So what now of HD-DVD, Universal have also announced that they will switch to Blu-ray and Paramount will follow suit as well thats a given. Those who bought an HD-DVD player will be able to pick up some bargains but the releases will cease very soon and their players are destined to join the Betmax grave of home entertainment.

Blu-ray is the future of High definition disks, but some at Toshibas think that there will be no physical future for home movies, a thought shared by Microsoft who were a backer of the HD-DVD format, it'll all be downloads soon, but Im not ready for that future but I'm sure happy that Blu-ray has won this battle.
