Scandinavian titles accounted for five of the top 10 best selling foreign language films on video in 2013, four of which were Nordic noir adaptations: the Millennium trilogy films and Headhunters (Table 11.5). There are four French language films on the list: Untouchable, the highest grossing foreign language film at the UK box office in 2012, Rust and Bone, Amour and Amélie. (Amélie was first released on video in 2002 and was re-released theatrically in 2011 to coincide with its 10th anniversary.) The only non-European language title was The Raid (in Indonesian). This film was written and directed by the British filmmaker Gareth Evans. Six of the films also appeared in the top 10 list in 2012: all three Millennium trilogy films, Headhunters, The Raid and Troll Hunter. None of the films was released theatrically in the UK in 2013, but Amour, Rust and Bone and Untouchable were released theatrically late in 2012, and would not have been released on video before 2013.
