'Book of Eli' leads Blu-Ray Top 10


The end of the world as we know it is apparently big business these days. The Denzel Washington apocalyptic tale "The Book of Eli" captured the top slot in Blu-ray releases in its first week in circulation, moving former frontrunner "Alice in Wonderland" down to third. Finishing in the runner-up post was another former frontrunner, "Avatar."

Another apocalyptic-themed film, "2012," still remains on the most recent bestsellers list, in fifth, after its Blu-ray release several weeks ago. The John Travolta international thriller "From Paris with Love" placed sixth.
