The Official Film Chart - Week 2


Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom proves the franchise is far from extinct as it dominates on the Official Film Chart.  Last week, it hit the Number 1 spot on downloads alone, and this week physical formats boost the title to stamp all over the competition with more than 250,000 combined sales this week.

The highest new entry comes from Incredibles 2 which dashes straight in at 2 on downloads alone (physical formats were available from 12th Nov). Also entering purely on downloads is Skyscraper starring Dwayne Johnson, which starts at 3 (physical formats will be available from 19th Nov).  The Greatest Showman slides to 4 and completing the top 5 is the return of 2000’s Christmas classic The Grinch.  The festive film, starring Jim Carey, has now sold more than 3 million copies since release and is boosted by a new animated Grinch film hitting the big screen last week, this time with Benedict Cumberbatch taking on Grinch duties.

It’s a magical reappearance for Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them, which enters at 6 helped by the next instalment in the series’, Crimes of Grindelwald, impending theatrical release.   The rest of the top 10 is made up of Solo – A Star Wars Story at 7, Sicario 2 at 8, Avengers: Infinity War at 9 and Ocean’s 8 at 10.

The Official Film Chart is unveiled each Wednesday and is the subject of a Top 10 Official Film Chart online show, published on OfficialCharts.com and available for media syndication. The show counts down the top 10 biggest selling movies on disc and download of the week and also includes bonus “coming soon” content for film lovers.
