The list of the top 10 UK qualifying films on sell-through video in 2013 features just two titles which are also in the overall top 10 for the year (Table 11.2). These are Skyfall and Les Misérables, which were the highest earning UK films at the UK box office in 2012 and 2013 respectively. Five of the top 10 UK films on video are independent films, including the documentary The Class of ’92. This film was shown in UK cinemas in 2013, but it has not been included in the box office chapters of the Yearbook as Rentrak reported its screenings as event cinema rather than as a film release. Three of the films in the list of top selling UK films on video (Skyfall, Fast & Furious 6 and Dredd) also appear in the BVA’s list of top 20 selling films on Blu-ray disc in 2013.
