Here's something I wasn't expecting on this weeks UK video charts, Legends of Oz Dorothys Return enters as the number one selling dvd/Blu-ray.
Due to nothing big being released this week and a lack of big releases in the last few week has allowed a small film from May to hit the top.
The animated feature hit cinemas on 23rd May this year, it didn't hot the top 10 but spent a single week at number 13 taking £93,469.
Last weeks top film, Pompeii falls a single place to number 2 this week, it's second week of release on home video.
There is only one other new film this week, Tokarev at 7 which stars Nicholas Cage
Out selling everything else on the home video front in the UK this week is the historical drama Pompeii which replaces Bad Neighbours at the top.
Pompeii hit UK cinemas on 2nd May this years and on it's debut weekend of release hit number 3 on the box office with £1.1 million, it was the highest new film of that week though.
The film only stayed on the chart for 3 weeks falling to 5 then 8 before leaving, it gross a total of £2.6 million in the UK.
Last weeks top film, the previously mentioned Bad Neighbours, fall to second place after a single week at the top.
Other new films this week are
Sabotage at 3
The Two Faces of January at 10
Wolf Creek 2 at 11

No move at the top of the box office this week for a third consecutive week give The Amazing Spider-Man 2 the top film of the week. The summer season has started.
The follow up Spider-Man film added another £2 million over the weekend bringing it's total UK gross to just why of £ 20 million.
With The Other Woman staying put at 2 the highest new film was the Paul W.S. Anderson directed Pompeii which entered at 3. Based on the historical events surrounding the Italian village Pompeii took £1.2 million over the weekend.
Other new films this week are:
Blue Ruin (15)
This time last year there was still no moving Iron Man 3 as he spent another week at the top with the highest new film 21 and Over entering at 2.
Five years ago X-Men Origins: Wolverine debuted on the chart at the top leaving Hannah Montana The Movie to land at 2. State of Play fell from the top to 3.
Ten years ago Kill Bill Volume 2 was still riding the top slot keeping Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind from debuting at number 1, it had to settle for 2.
Fifteen years ago The Waterboy starring Adam Sandler was the new film at the top of the box office, knocking 8MM down to second place.
Twenty years ago Four Wedding and a Funeral was the big film for May with The Naked Gun 33 1/3 The Final Insult and The Crow also doing well while twenty five years ago Warlock starring Julian Sands was the big film with Mississippi Burning and Beaches also doing well.
Lots of new films this week, a couple came out on Wednesday the rest due in UK cinemas on Friday (the proper day).
Pompeii came out on Wednesday, the story of the ill fated Italian city built under Mount Vesuvius which erupted suddenly and wiped out the whole city in 79AD. Like Noah from a few weeks back this has been given the Hollywood treatment, it stars Kit Harington and Emily Browning and is directed by Paul W. S. Anderson, a top 3 opening could be on the cards.
Plastic also came out on Wednesday, a British comedy film directed by Julian Gilbey about credit card fraud. Because it's a British film expect it to enter at about 5, mage a little lower.
Brick Mansions has had a lot of hype because it is the last film Paul Walker completed before his early death last year. Interest will be high and because of this a possible top 5 entry is likely.
Tarzan is an animated CGI film which incredibly realistic looking animation. No big names and little hype, this could miss the top 10 altogether.
Out on Saturday is Bad Neighbours, Seth Rogen and Zac Efron star in this comedy about neighbours who don't quite see eye to eye, one is a family man one a college graduate. It misses out on Fridays takings but may still do well on Saturday and Sunday for a top 10 entry.
