The final instalment of M. Night Shyamalan’s anti-superhero trilogy, Glass, climbs to the top of the Official Film Chart this week, following its release on DVD and Blu-Ray. Bringing back characters from Unbreakable and Split, Glass sees David Dunn (Bruce Willis) pursuing Kevin Wendell Crumb (James McAvoy) and his multiple personalities.
Bumblebee feels the sting as its knocked off the Number 1 spot for a second time, landing at Number 2; just ahead of How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World which flew to Number 3 on digital downloads only. The final instalment of the incredibly popular franchise sees Hiccup and Toothless seek out a secret dragon utopia, before a hired tyrant called Grimmel beats them to it.
Mary Queen Of Scots advances four places to Number 4, Bohemian Rhapsody drops one to Number 5, and The Secret Life Of Pets jumps four spots to Number 6 following its sequel’s release in cinemas.
Mary Poppins Returns is down two at Number 7, The Favourite tumbles six places to 8 and Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse lands at Number 9.
Finally, Lancaster Skies is this week’s second new entry at Number 10. A broken, solitary Spitfire ace must overcome his troubles to lead a Lancaster bomber crew in the pivotal 1944 aerial war over Berlin.

To celebrate Glass’ Number 1 achievement, Official Charts are revealing the UK’s Top 10 Biggest Films directed by M. Night Shyamalan, based on sales across DVD and Blu-Ray formats.
The Sixth Sense leads with over 1.27 million copies sold on disc; now a classic, highly-referenced piece of cinema, the film famously features a huge twist at the end, capturing the public’s imagination and solidifying M. Night Shyamalan’s place as a filmmaker who knows how to keep audiences on the edge of their seats.
At Number 5 is The Last Airbender, the 2010 feature film based on the Nickelodeon animated series and one of a few examples of M. Night Shyamalan turning his hand to child-friendly films. Glass’s predecessors, Split and Unbreakable also make the Top 10 at Numbers 8 and 3 respectively.
