The teen vampire franchise Twilight has dominated entertainment sales in Britain this year, selling nearly twice as much as its closest rival.
According to the Entertainment Retailers Association (ERA) entertainment chart, which combines sales of DVDs, games and music albums, The Twilight Saga - Breaking Dawn Part 1 sold more than 1.2 million copies in the first half of 2012.
In second place was the compilation album Now That's What I Call Music 81, which notched up 667,932 sales.
A surge in videos on Blu-ray and DVD account for 21 of the top 40 best-sellers - up from 2011 when only 19 videos made it into the chart.
Breaking Dawn Part 1, Starring Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, had grossed more than $700m (£442m) at the global box office before its release on video.
It heads a list of successful videos with British connections - from Irish/Scottish comedy Mrs Brown's Boys to the Guy Ritchie-directed Sherlock Holmes movie A Game of Shadows.
