Avengers: Endgame was king at the box office in 2019, though it was Queen who ruled home video.
The British Association for Screen Entertainment and the Official Charts Company unveiled some very interesting statistics about home video sales for last year, and it turns out that Thanos couldn’t quite replicate his dominance on digital and Blu-ray.
Don’t get us wrong, Avengers: Endgame did rack up an impressive half-million digital copies sold in the UK alone, but that wasn’t enough to top Freddie Mercury biopic Bohemian Rhapsody.

When digital sales were bundled with DVD and Blu-ray sales, Bohemian Rhapsody ranked above Avengers: Endgame, Toy Story 4, Mary Poppins Returns and A Star is Born in that order.
Even more impressively, the Oscar-winning Queen biopic also topped the Official Charts Company ranking over Avengers: Endgame, A Star is Born, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald and Mary Poppins Returns when only physical sales of Blu-ray and DVD were taken into account.
Marvel fans shouldn’t feel defeated, though! Avengers: Endgame maintains the staggering box office record as the highest-grossing movie ever made.
Tony Stark and Steve Rogers should probably watch their backs though, since James Cameron has already devised a strategy for previous record-holder Avatar to take back the crown.
But could the Na’vi ever possibly rock harder than Freddie Mercury and Queen? We have some serious doubts about that…
Avengers: Endgame is out now on DVD, Blu-ray, 3D, 4K and digital download.
