Apple has listed the top five grossing movies of all time on iTunes in the US with Elf, starring Will Ferrell as ‘Buddy the Elf’, as the all-time bestselling holiday movie.
In the list that was released on Wednesday on company’s website, 1989’s National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation figures in the second place. The movie stars Chevy Chase as Clark W. Griswold.
Dr Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas, starring Jim Carrey as the Grinch, and Home Alone, starring Macaulay Culkin and directed by Chris Columbus, figure on number three and four respectively.
The Polar Express starring Tom Hanks in multiple roles is on the fifth number in the Apple’s top five grossing holiday movies on iTunes. The movie is directed by Robert Zemeckis.
Apple said that users can ask Siri – on iPhone or iPad or on Apple TV using the Siri remote – to play these holiday favourites or other popular holiday titles of this season, including Home Alone 2: Lost in New York, The Night Before, A Christmas Story, and others. Users can also gift iTunes movies to friends and family.
