Clearly there were no no releases of not this week as entering at the top of the video chart is Nicholas Cage in a film called Left Behind.
Left Behind was badly received by critics in the US when released on October 3rd and made only $2 million at the box office so the distributers decided not to give it a UK theatrical release.
That decision may have paid off as it sells well on video in the UK, although it is on one of the quietest periods of sale in the UK, the test will be where it is next week.
Last weeks top sale falls to number 2 this week, Frozen from Disney spending yet another week high on the chart.
Other new videos this week are:
Deliver Us From Evil at number 7
The Rover at number 17
At the UK box office this week Luc Besson's directed Lucy about a woman using 100% of her brain takes over at the top.
Starring Scarlett Johansson Lucy tops the box office on it's debut week of release with a weekend gross of £3.07 million.
Compared to Luc Bessons previous films this is by far the best opening he has had, Arthur and the Invisibles is his highest grossing British release which took just over a million on it's release in 2007.
Scarlett Johansson is part of the Marvel Avengers universe so has seen some astronomical releases over the past few years and so it's a little unfair to compare!
Falling into second place is last weeks top film The Inbetweeners 2 which has now grossed £27.6 million after 3 weeks of release.
There is a few other new entries this week which are
Into the Storm at 4 Deliver Us From Evil at 5
What if at 6
Doctor Who: Deep Breath at 8, from a single day special showing on Saturday
Two Days, One Night at 14

Five years ago Inglourious Basterds was the new top film in the UK knocking The Time Travers Wife down to the runner up spot.
Ten years ago M. Night Shyamalan released The Village which hit the top spot on it's debut with The Bourne Supremacy falling a single place to number 2.
Fifteen years ago Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace reclaimed the top spot knocking Austin Powers The Spy Who Shagged me to number 2, highest new film was Micky Blue Eys at 3.
This week Transformers: Age of Extinction was the top film in America for the second week running and again far out grossed the rest of the box office.
In it's second weekend of release the battling robots took $36,400,000 and has now grossed $174,746,000 over it's 10 day run so far.
