DVDs and video games at the top of festive wish lists

By Kate Ferguson

All we want for Christmas are video games and DVDs, according to a survey of the UK's most wished for presents.

Superhero film Guardians of the Galaxy is the most sought-after gift this festive season, according to online retailer Amazon.

Hollywood blockbusters X-Men: Days of Future Past and Maleficent, inspired by the classic fairytale Sleeping Beauty, bagged the second and third spots.

Bookworms are most likely to want to settle down with the thriller Gone Girl, as the book which inspired a hit film by the same name is the fourth most-wanted present this Yuletide.

While video games are also popular, with Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor and Call of Duty: Advances Warfare - Day Zero Edition claiming the fifth and sixth spots. The huge demand for merchandise from the Disney mega hit Frozen - the fifth highest-grossing film in Box Office history - shows no sign of abating.

Goodies inspired by the film appear in Amazon's 'most wished for products' lists right across film, homeware, beauty and toys and games.
