Beatles hit top spot with "1"

graphic
 

NEW YORK -- They may not be together anymore, and, yes, they're short one member. Regardless, they remain the Fab Four, and the Beatles recently proved they've still got the touch.

"1," a collection of 27 of the Beatles' No. 1 hits, debuted, appropriately, at the No. 1 spot in the week ending November 19. The band sold 595,000 copies of the album in its first week.

In second place was the fifth edition of "Now That's What I Call Music," Columbia's compilation series. The album includes tracks from Britney Spears, 'N Sync and Destiny's Child.

"Lovers Rock," the fifth album from Sade, debuted at No. 3, with almost 370,000 copies sold. The LP is the silky-voiced singer's first in eight years.

    The Irish quartet will be promoting its new album, "All That You Can't Leave Behind." The tour is set to kick off in Miami, Florida.

    Harvey recently released an album, "Stories from the City, Stories from the Sea," and may play headline dates of her own while opening for U2.

    "I played with them in '93 and very much enjoy doing shows with them, they're friends of mine," Harvey told BBC's Radio 1.

    The DVD and VHS versions of "X-Men" raked in almost $50 million at stores this weekend, close to the $57.5 million the movie earned in its opening weekend at the box office.

    20th Century Fox Home Entertainment estimates that 1.12 million VHS copies and 1 million DVD versions of the movie were sold by Sunday. The movie went on to earn $157 million at North American movie theaters, and Fox officials are confident that the video will sell well, too.

    "This incredible consumer response proves that 'X-Men' was not only an event at the box office, but that it is also an event at retail cash registers," said Fox spokesman Steve Feldstein.

    'Eraser' comes to small screen

    HOLLYWOOD, California -- Make a spot on your TV schedule for "Eraser." ABC is developing a TV version of the 1996 action movie, which starred Arnold Schwarzenegger, Vanessa L. Williams and James Caan.

    Like the movie, the TV show will chronicle the adventures of an "eraser," a federal marshal who makes witnesses disappear as part of the federal government's Witness Protection Program.

    The executive producers of the show are currently producing CBS' version of the 1993 movie "The Fugitive."
