Venom seizes a second week at Number 1 on the Official Film Chart

Venom enjoys another week at the top of the Official Film Chart, outselling its closest rival by over 16,000 copies on digital downloads alone.  Critically the film was rated mostly a ‘flop’ by the critics, however the fans loved it and now the sales are showing their love for the film.

At Number 2, with 85% physical sales, is Jack Black’s The House With A Clock In Its Walls which climbs seven spots to take second place. Its 5,000 sales ahead of The Predator which climbs 22 spots to 3, following its release on DVD and Blu-ray on January 28.

Next up it’s the seemingly unstoppable chart veterans, The Greatest Showman (4) and Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again (5) ahead of Mile 22 (6) which races up 31 positions thanks to its physical release.

Brand new and on digital download alone, is Night School starring Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish – a hilarious comedy about a group of adults who take up evening classes at the local high school in order to earn the diplomas they didn’t get the first time around.

King Of Thieves steals a third week on the Top 10, dropping three places to Number 8, and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom hangs in there at Number 9. Finally, Ryan Reynolds is still causing mayhem in Deadpool 2 at Number 10.

This week’s Official Film Chart online show features a sneak peek at Jamie Lee Curtis’ latest stint as Laurie Strode in Halloween (2018), a 40-years-later direct sequel to the 1978 original with a brand new timeline. It’s available to download and keep from February 11, and on disc from February 25.

The Official Film Chart is unveiled each Wednesday and is the subject of a Top 10 Official Film Chart online show, published on and available for media syndication.
