From official charts UK
While flowers are undoubtedly still the Number 1 gift for Mother’s Day, a surprising close second seems to be the latest installment of The Twilight Saga, as Breaking Dawn Part 1 rockets to the top of the Official Video Chart.
It seems as though there are a lot of British mums who are as equally obsessed with Robert Pattinson (who playsEdward Cullen in the hit films) as their teenage daughters as the fourth part of incredibly popular franchise debuts at Number 1 this Mothering Sunday.
With over 919,000 sales, Breaking Dawn Part 1 has outsold this week’s Number 2 DVD and Blu-ray release – The Help – by a staggering 854,000 copies making it the fastest selling video release of 2012. This amazing first week sales figure also means that Breaking Dawn Part 1 has become the second fastest selling home release of theTwilight Saga. It is just behind 2010’s New Moon, which sold over a million copies in the UK week one.
